One fed up citizen was nearly gunned down after taking matters into his own hands

In a world where police departments are unfunded and understaffed, relying on the police to help you is not always a safe bet.

Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands.

But one fed up citizen did just that and he nearly paid the ultimate price.

The bottom line is that crime is out of control across the nation.

If something has any value whatsoever, you can expect it to be stolen at some point or another.

One particular item that has been subject to theft as of late is catalytic converters in vehicles.

If you have ever had to replace one then you know firsthand how expensive these suckers can be.

The city of Denver, Colorado, which has gained a reputation as of late for its alarmingly high crime rates, has seen an explosion in catalytic converter thefts.

According to the Denver Police, this year alone 695 converters have been stolen.

This is an eye-opening figure, especially given that it is only early May.

Citizens of Denver are getting fed up with thieves picking their cars clean and one such citizen decided to take matters into his own hands after catching one of these thieves in the act.

A Denver local by the name of Scot Smith noticed that his neighbor’s car was having its catalytic converter stolen by some criminals just the other day.

When he approached the thugs, they squared up to him and threatened him to leave.

Before he knew it they were driving away with the expensive car part.

Smith, knowing that calling the police would likely get him nowhere, followed the men who brandished a firearm at him before opening fire.

Smith at that point gave up the chase and called 911.

As of now, no suspects have been found.

This theft has Scott and his neighbors feeling unsettled and afraid, and it’s hard to blame them.

Having a car parked in front of your home is no longer safe in cities such as Denver.

The sad part is that what is happening in Denver is happening across the nation.

Criminals feel more emboldened than ever due to weak judges who refuse to put criminals behind bars where they belong.

In response to this theft, Denver police said that they never recommend confronting thieves and that the best way to prevent these thefts is to put a cage on your converter.

What a joke.
