Yes Ive learned that maybe catching them is worse than the theft. I had a guy that stole two loads of valuable cedar logs. I was angry. I cut off the stumps and went to every sawmill around. I did Find the logs and it was a guy who knew me supposed to be a friend. Well the deputy investigated however the prosecuter woundnt do anything I wanted revenge and I was spending too much time thinking about it. I could have got in big trouble doing some of the paybacks I thought of. So after much thought I just quit giving it free rent in my head. I decided to let Karma take care of it. A short time later that thief was walking across his yard and died of a heart attack. Ok just reciently some thief tore down the fence and stole a couple of loads of scrap from My old place. I went to the scrap recycler and spotted a couple of things. I asked one of the hired hands who brought it in. It again was someone I knew. I never went to the law. I posted on Topix telling about a thief stealing my scrap. Never named any names. just mentioned I would live without it and they would have to live with it. And that Karma would pay them. Well it happened again that guy also dropped dead!
