Fierce

Twitter Fans Of This Woman Are Calling For Her To Get Sponsored By Ring Because Of The Way She Handled The App

What would you do if you caught someone trying to steal your precious package off of your front doorstep? For many, their first instinct would be to chase the thief away, but what if you aren’t home when the crime takes place?

You think that once your package is left behind by the mail carrier, that it will remain there, patiently waiting for you for you to return. After all, stealing someone else’s mail is a federal crime. Yet, that’s not always the case. Anybody walking near your home can easily pass by and scoop up your packages. You’re left hopelessly searching and asking around if anyone saw your package, even after you received the confirmed delivery notification from the mail carrier.

For Jasmine Le, preventing a burglary was as easy as pressing a button on her smartphone.

Smart Doorbells have gained popularity lately and it’s easy to see why. They add an extra layer of security when you’re not home. Thwarting away thieves away from your door has never been easier.

On Saturday, July 20, a Twitter User who goes by the name Jasmine Le, took to social media to share a video captured on her doorbell camera that shows a woman sneaking towards Le’s home and picking up a Sephora package meant for her.

In the now viral tweet, Le screams at the intruder just as she is picking up the package, “Get out of my house,” as heard via the Ring app.

The mystery woman then drops the package and walks away without ever looking back.

Afterwards, Le can be heard saying, “She dropped it,” clearly upset by the situation.

Le ends the video with her yelling at the intruder to, “Get the f*ck out of my house, you f*cking dumb b*tch.”

Not Today Satan!

The Twitter post received a number of replies, many of which applauded Le for her choice of words.

You have to be fierce when protecting your Sephora packages. Makeup is not cheap.

Twitter users have also praised Le for catching the thief in the act and scaring her at the perfect moment.

According to replies on the Tweet and comments made by Le herself, the Ring app notifies users when someone is near their door. This function is super convenient for when you’re away from home and someone is attempting to steal your goodies from your front door.

This motivated a number of users to want a Ring camera for themselves.

*adding this to the list of things I need, but also don’t need*

You and I both.

Twitter users in the replies urged Le to tell the world more details about her smart doorbell, like where she purchased it and the specifics of the model she owns.

A ver, tell us. We need to know.

According to Le, she purchased her doorbell camera at Costco for $189. You can check it out at your local Costco store for yourself to see what Ring doorbell cameras they have in stock.

On my way to Costco, brb!

Text me if y’all need anything from Costco. Snacks, wine, a smart doorbell perhaps?

If you’re a Costco member, hurry now to your local Costco so you can protect all of your packages!

Even though the specific doorbell camera used in the video is only sold to Costco members, it isn’t the only way to get your hands on a security doorbell.

From Target to Best Buy, you can purchase one at just about any major retailer. Buy one for yourself or for your loved ones as gifts. For example, you could get one for your parents so they can scold you, even before you walk through the door, as you’re trying to sneak in after a late night out aunque no sean horas de llegar a la casa.

You might think that these kind of things may never happen to you because they are so “rare,” but they do and can happen to anyone.

Thieves can strike at any moment and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Take this as a cautionary tale, y’all. You don’t want to be stuck on the phone trying to make a claim for your stolen package. Even though getting a doorbell camera seems excessive, it’s really not. They are bringing affordable wireless home security to many people nationwide.

Don’t be surprised when you have to pick up your phone to yell into it angrily whenever you spot someone eyeing your packages.

While some users focused on Le, others focused on the thief.

¿Para qué o qué?

It’s important for everyone to feel safe in their homes, but the identity of the perpetrator should be kept off the internet. That’s Le’s business to deal with, whether she wants to pursue a search for her or not. After all, the package wasn’t stolen. Let’s just hope she doesn’t try to do it again to someone else.

The tea was served piping hot.

It wasn’t a person of color who tried to steal the package, but a white person, bringing to light the fact that stealing is not an issue about race and that the stereotypes against POC are false.

However, the most pressing question that we all have on our minds: is the Sephora makeup okay?

Well, is it???? C’mon, I can’t be the only one asking this.

Praise the packaging gods.

The Sephora package was wrapped so well that not even a plunge to the floor could shatter it. It’s almost as unbreakable as your Nokia phone circa 2009. You gotta love the extra care that goes into packaging makeup.

Since she’s speaking so highly of the product that helped prevent this tragedy, here’s to hoping she gets that sponsorship from Ring!

If you’re still convinced that this will never happen to you, just search for ‘doorbell camera’ on YouTube for footage that will persuade you otherwise.

Take this as a sign to get some extra surveillance for your home and go out there to buy yourself a doorbell camera before someone tries to steal your packages. You do not want to miss out on the opportunity to yell at someone from your phone and tell them to get out of your house.

Doorbell Camera Shows A Woman Seeking Help From Neighbors As Captor Pulls Her Away

Doorbell Camera Shows A Woman Seeking Help From Neighbors As Captor Pulls Her Away

There is a disturbing video out of Arcadia, California that shows a man attacking his estranged girlfriend. The footage was captured on a neighbor’s Ring doorbell as the woman ran for help. The culprit, Robert Michael Mendez, 27, has been charged with suspicion of attempted murder, kidnapping and false imprisonment after Arcadia Police say they received footage of him dragging and assaulting the women. 

Ring doorbell surveillance footage shows Richard Michael Mendez dragging away his estranged girlfriend from a neighbors front door. 

The doorbell video shows the woman running to a neighbors front door and knocking for help. Mendez then runs up to her, grabs her by the hair and drags her away as she screams.

Authorities received the Ring doorbell footage taken from a home in the area of Santa Anita Avenue and Camino Real Avenue at around 11:40 p.m. that appeared to show a man, later identified as Mendez, dragging the woman who had showed up at the home begging for assistance. 

“The extent of the female’s injuries were severe enough to warrant hospitalization,” a police news release said. “Investigation also revealed that the female victim had been held against her will inside the residence since late (Sunday) evening.”

Many people have been shocked to see the disturbing footage that has made rounds on national news.

The homeowners of where the attack happened sent the video to the police who then began searching through the neighborhood for Mendez. Upon knocking on his door, authorities identified him as the suspect. They also found the woman inside his home and she was quickly rushed to the hospital with significant injuries. Mendez was taken into custody without incident. 

Authorities say the woman was being held against her will at Mendez’s house since September 29. While fellow neighbors said that Mendez had kept to himself, they did notice numerous cars coming in and out of his house.

“I thought she was going to die,” Arcadia neighbor Tammy Raycraft told KCAL/KCBS, noting that she saw the entire incident go down. “We looked out the side window over here and witnessed him stomping on her, pulling her by her hair … it was awful. It was really traumatic to watch.”

The surveillance footage was provided by Ring, the Amazon-owned technology company, which has partnered with more than 400 police departments nationwide. But some people say this might infringe on privacy rights.

This incident is an example of how Ring and other tech companies have helped law enforcement agencies across the country find similar fugitives. As of now, Ring has stated that they are working with 405 police departments nationwide. The goal of this partnership is to convince people to not only buy the device but also sign up for its neighborhood watch app. In return, police get access to your Ring video footage with your permission. 

While the technology partnership has support, some worry about certain privacy issues. Police can still request video footage directly from Amazon if it has been uploaded to its cloud and the request is sent within 60 days of recording. This can happen even if an individual denies police access to that video footage.

While this only applies to users who live near law enforcement agencies that are working with Ring, it does set precedent for future surveillance technology. In this case, it helped lead to an arrest that might have never happened if it wasn’t for the video footage.

A Dad Interrogated His Daughter’s Date Using A Ring Camera And We All Feel The Secondhand Embarrassment

There is nothing more embarrassing than introducing your new bae to your parents. Now, in the 21st century, it is even more embarrassing because technology is making it easier and easier to get connected. That is exactly what happened with one young woman who was being picked up for a date and her father got on the Ring doorbell and started his interrogation.

This bright-eyed and wide smile man had no idea what he was getting into when he picked up his date for a movie.

As he was waiting for his date on the porch, her father rang in through the Ring doorbell and began to ask him a list of questions. He wanted to know where they were going, what movie they were watching, and what time the movie was starting. To his credit, the young man kept his cool and answered all of Pedro Lugo’s questions.

Yet, the young woman going on the date was quick to interject and deflect her dad’s attention from her date.

Lugo originally told his daughter to wait for him to finish the interrogation but she was not letting him get away with it. She stood there and talked with her dad about when she will be home. While the father insisted 10:30, she was firm in saying 11 over and over again.

We low key love the dad for putting some heat on his daughter’s date.

Like, sure, it is very embarrassing to sit there and have to have this kind of conversation with your dad. However, we’ve all been there. We’ve all had to have these uncomfortable and out-dated conversations so our parents can feel comfortable with us leaving the house like full-grown being with free will.

Also, big kudos to the woman standing her ground and letting her dad know when she will be back.

Dad: “When will you be back?”

Daughter: “Before 11.”

Dad: “Okay. I heard 10:30 again.”

Daughter: “11.”

Dad: “10:30. Don’t make me go looking for you.”

Daughter: “11.”

Daughter’s Date: “…….”

He did make sure she had enough money to take care of herself.

The dad did say that she technically doesn’t have to pay for anything, however, he wants his first daughter to be independent and able to care for herself. That is parenting done right.

Everyone on Instagram is celebrating the dad and his conversation with the two young people.

These are the conversations and moments we all hate but love at the same time. It shows that your parents truly care and want the best for you. Who could be upset about that?

The whole video is just a sweet reminder of how to parent in the 21st century.

The days of dad meeting the date at the door are long gone now that he can be at work and video call in.

Congrats, Daddy Lugo. This is one video everyone can agree with.

What do you think about the father’s interrogation?
