Stolen cars and abandoned grocery carts: Taking matters into your own hands

Do you ever see people doing something that just ain’t right, and no one’s doing anything about it… So you take matters into your own hands?

Today, meet one Portland, Oregon auto shop owner who has recovered over 200 stolen cars in less than a year.

And meet another man who uses humor to shame people when they don’t return their shopping carts.

Plus, CT Public’s own Colin McEnroe talks about his Facebook post about the morality of returning your shopping cart. That post detonated hundreds of passionate comments, leaving him with a whole slew of new insights into humanity.


  • Nick Haas: Owner of RBP Auto & Cycle in Portland Oregon who has recovered over 200 stolen vehicles in the past year
