How many people do you know who complain about noisy neighbors or somebody illegally blocking their parking space or annoying stray dogs or whatever? Lots of daydreams about taking revenge, but who follows up on them? That’s why I love the guy in this China Post story from two days ago.
A graduate student named Chen had two cell phones and NT$400 stolen from his motorcycle last week. So he parked his bike at the same place on Sunday, leaving two NT$100 bills in it, and went to a cafe across the street with his video camera.
Sure enough, two thieves took the money and took off, but Chen and his friends caught them. When the police came, not only did they have the thieves on camera, but Chen had also written down the serial numbers on the two bills.
But I’m curious as to what is the law in terms of “setting up” criminals.
