Citizens Taking Law Into Their Own Hands Using YouTube

koop-burglaryLindsay Lohan did it, Audrina Patridge did it, and now a couple from Atlanta is turning to YouTube to help find the criminals involved in the recent break-in of their home.

When the Koops were robbed last October, they posted the surveillance video detailing the crime on YouTube. The video shows three men kicking in the Koop’s front door and running out with the couple’s flat screen TV. Thanks to the surveillance video, the police were able to locate and arrests the burglars involved.

When the Koop’s home was broken into for a second time, they once again turned to YouTube for help. The newest video shows some men breaking into their home, grabbing an assortment of items, and making a fast getaway in a black SUV. The men were unaware of the fact that they were being watched and broadcasting to the Internet community.

Apparently YouTube is more than just silly homemade tapes and music videos, and has started to serve a serious security purpose. Only time will tell if YouTube will locate the criminals involved in the Koop’s home invasion.
