Although very honorable, I wonder how effective can these efforts be?, unless the property is easily to recognize, this looks to me like a hail mary of last resort.

I once walked past a pan-handler and he informed me that he was a retired bank robber. I dropped some money for originality at least.

Hate is a string word, but I have to say that I really ... dislike ... anyone who steals in any shape or form. I feel that I work hard for what I have, and the thought that someone can just walk in and take stuff is repugnant to me ... so I totally applaud this site... Actually, now that I come to think about it, when I was younger I used to play pool with a guy I met in the local public house ... after knowing him for many months I asked what he did for a living and he replied that he was a cat burglar ... the thing was that since I already knew him as a friend (and since he was a real nice guy, and since he always bought his round of beers) I was a bit conflicted by all this...
