At least this pirate didn't come with prybars to attack the front door with prying tools as they did on my building -Fields Corner- a few months ago. It happened three times within a week. On the last occasion, they badly damaged the door. I heard that it also happened to other buildings nearby on the same week. We reported to the police and provided video footage. Dorchester police response? Yawn. We made a dozen fliers with pictures and link to the YouTube video of their exploit and posted them street light posts. It seems to have work; they didn't return after that.



did those guy steal anything? they spent 5 minutes breaking the door in and then they went inside for 5 seconds and left?

im surprised the dorchester police were not more helpful.

Good, good. Let the Libertarianism flow through you.

Why pay for that?

That awareness that you're being watched is the reason you get to see yourself on the security camera at the store. I'm surprised you don't see more monitors in vestibules given the affordability of the equipment.

What we need to catch these guys is Glitterbomb!


Probably meant to link to Mark Rober's original glitterbomb video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoxhDk-hwuo

Not sure what happened there

Here's V3

Why don’t they just run her tattoo through the tattoo database like they do on television?




They gotta know the doorbell camera is recording, but they still don't care.


*gets into her Infiniti parked out front and drives off*


...you can't steal good taste

Tummy Bandit!

Seems like this would be a good application for a robot snake. Freak her out, watch her run.
