    Default Bait Car

    Is there REALLY so much car theft out there that this shit works? It amazes me. People are like "dude, I bet this is a bait car" then they jump in the fucking car and drive off anyway... What the fuck???

    Until recently here in northwest Arkansas a person didn't even need to worry about taking the keys out of their car when they were in town at Wal Mart or whatever, now it's a little different, but we don't have that many auto thefts. Some of yall who live in cities, do you really have to worry about it on a daily basis?

    yes...when I'm in town.

    When I bought my 1985 Monte Carlo SS AAA insurance wouldn't insure it because it was a muscle car and was at the top of the most stolen car list. Had a pickup stolen and it wasn't recovered until two months later, but we had already replaced it.

    I have an extra alarm system on my 300C...

    Yeah. They're about brilliant.

    Most of the Bait Car episodes are in SoCal. QUick trip across the border. The ones I don't get are like in FL and GA. Just where are you going from Atlanta?

    Well, I guess it's a different mindset because I wouldn't even think about stealing a car to begin with, but how amazingly dumb do you have to be to think it might be a bait car and then steal it anyway?

    To be fair, I've seen that same attitude on COPS when they run the prostitution stings.

    fat ugly bald guy: " Are you a cop"
    Knockout undercover : " No I'm not a cop, I'll give you anything for $10"
    FBG: " I think you're a cop, but okay $10 for sex"

    LOL geez if you think they're a cop walk away.

    So much for the "criminal mind".

    And at gunpoint, no less.
    Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours.

    One last night tried to convince the cops he was moving the car to make sure it wasn't stolen. Swear to God.

    I like the ones that try to steal a vehicle but it's stick and they have no clue what to do.

    I'm very easily amused.

    Seen one the other day where they stole it out of a parking complex then couldn't figure out how to get out of the parking complex. Stupid assholes drove in circles for 10 minutes before the cops finally made a mercy arrest.

    Not to be obvious here, but most of the people caught stealing the bait car having something major in common.

    They're thieves? And not very smart?
