The Law Is a Ass


When London police refused to even send an officer to investigate a burglary at his home, Dr. Otto Chan decided to take matters into his own hands. He put up posters offering a reward for anyone who returned the stolen goods, including family photographs, no questions asked. When police saw the posters, they threatened to arrest Chan for trying to buy stolen goods. Great Britain's 1968 Theft Act makes it illegal to offer no-questions-asked rewards for stolen goods.
