Family uses YouTube to catch burglar at their home... again!?

What good is a home surveillance video system if it only has an audience of one? A family in the Grant Park neighborhood posted their surveillance system footage of a burglary to YouTube on Sunday afternoon and, 10,000 views later, they've got an arrest warrant for the alleged perpetrator. What's remarkable is, this is the second time they've used YouTube to catch a burgler at their home (here's the first time). By now, they're pros - they even leave the phone number for the Atlanta police office in the video description. Perhaps they should put a YouTube sticker in every window of their home to ward off future bad guys.

“It’s social networking for vigilante justice,” said the homeowner Alyssa Kopp, in an interview with the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. “My husband simply put it up out of convenience. We couldn’t believe the response."

I shudder to think what might have happened if there were anyone home. They had an agenda, and obviously, it was reprehensible.
