Hey mate, at least we can clearly and with ‘happyness’ have our cell phone out and recording video and high-resolution photographs of the perpetrators while they are in the act and we are awaiting law enforcement to arrive. It’s bittersweet emotions; but at least we’re not following the anger their acts engender, we’re appreciating the fact we’ll have them before a judge and off to whatever punishment their acts earn.
Ah! Remember, if things turn sideways the phone can take care of it’self.
I suppose someone will happily point out, better to spend the money on a few (or a lot of) well placed security cameras with high resolution and night vision so that one didn’t have to place one’s life at risk… If you could afford them… however, that’s between you and your attorney/adviser. It only makes sense NOT to risk exposure to escalation of one illegal act into something far worse.
