Yes, this woman is 100% wrong for stealing this car, but this is not the best use of limited police resources. The folks they are catching are not the problematic car thieves we should be catching. They are manufacturing unnatural conditions that entice people to do something they wouldn't ordinarily do. This woman, as many others caught during these stings, would never break into a car or jimmy the ignition to steal it... that's where the real auto theft problem is. A car sitting on the street with the motor running, PLEASE! What's more effective than this waste of tax dollars is to take a portion of that money and launch an auto theft education campaign in the areas of high theft rates. Auto theft devices and education do a much better of preventing REAL auto theft than this nonsense. It may not make my community safer, but it does make for good entertainment.
