The site’s profile picture is a mocked-up warning sign, with an image of a gun, which reads: “ATTENTION THIEVES. PLEASE CARRY ID SO WE CAN NOTIFY NEXT OF KIN”. The implication is that thieves caught should expect to die.

To make her point, Reinbold brought two signs from home, holding them up for the crowd.

“My Alarm Tells Me You’re In My House/My Gun Tells Me Not For Long,” read one.

The other was even less subtle:

“ATTENTION Burglars Please Carry ID So We Can Notify Next of Kin.”
