It’s something that each of us is taught as young children, but for some reason, some people just don’t get it. As soon as we are old enough to discern right from wrong, someone tells us a simple truth: stealing is wrong. Stealing hurts the people that are stolen from, and though it may not seem like it at the moment, stealing hurts the thief as well. They may not realize it at the time, but their act leaves them the weight of bad karma.
Any thief is stuck with their bad karma and a black mark on his or her soul. It may take minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or even years, but stealing will come back to haunt the thief in one way or another. In the case of the thief in this video, he gets his comeuppance in a matter of seconds, forty seconds to be exact.
What appears to be a quiet, relatively well-off neighborhood has a strange crime problem. It seems that someone is stealing delivered packages off of the residents’ front porches after they are delivered. It’s a simple crime really and takes very little skills or smarts to pull off. Someone with smarts would have realized that with current technology, it would be extremely easy to capture the thief on video. This particular resident took it one step further – he replaced a delivered package with a “bait box” set to explode after 40 seconds. And that bait box is full of, well, poop. The thief has no idea what’s coming. He snatches the box off of the front porch, goes back his car, and within a few minutes, can be seen jumping out of the car in obvious shock and disgust. He got what he deserved!
