The ironies are delicious, particularly coming from CNN and its slanted perspective:

I recall setting traps up for thieves is illegal in Florida - or was.
I had thought about setting traps for the song thieves.

Self protection gun laws have been liberalized since I left Florida but I am not sure about traps.

Best to assume this is illegal just about everywhere.

There was a famous case in first year Tort class about this.

"Crime is Down"

"Crime is down", we are told.  "Biden Accomplishment."


Too bad FBI "national" crime stats don't include most crime:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-10-05/murder-rate-mystery-new-fbi-crime-stats-don-t-include-nyc-la

the bureau switched the way it collects crime data this year, and many police departments did not get on board. Los Angeles and New York City did not report to the FBI. In fact, only 63% of the country's police departments submitted anything, and some of the data that was submitted was incomplete.

A Simple Solution

2nd post. Cook county (Chicago) prosecutor notes blacks are more likely to have illegal guns and drugs when pulled over during traffic stops. The solution for equity’s sake? Stop prosecuting them:
