Sure - tip off the hoodlums so they can get clean away before the police arrive. Run away and live to rob another day...even though they are being “watched” this will be no deterrent, just like the death penalty is not to those who are intent on mayhem and murder.Just heard a D.J. on the radio saying that a monitoring device to let local hoodlums know that they are watching them and would announce over a speaker that the police are on the way, was a great idea!!!!!
It's the way they create the narrative and get everyone who can't think for themselves saying " what a great idea" without thinking of the logical consequences that follow on.
