A man in Oakland, California trying to break into a car is unwittingly caught on a security camera. His attempt to commit the crime is thwarted by the sound of an alarm and he, perhaps justly, finds a way to hurt his leg and sheepishly limps away. The incident is captured on video and mocked by viewers.

The clip, uploaded by @crimeoncamera, fuels some discussion in the comments section.
"While opening the door, he makes direct eye contact with the camera," observes @mskelseytheog.
"The only thing he didn't do is smile and hold his ID up to the camera," agrees @tracybeans67.
"He twists his ankle for no reason," writes @chubuluk.
Viewer of the video @billb50_59826 says, "I'm waiting for a big mean dog to come running out."
"Why does this man keep looking at the camera?" asks @ryno408. "Like someones going to pop out and chase him."
"He's just misunderstood," jokes @loczilla. "He's the neighborhood lock checker. He wants to make sure every car is locked and secure. God bless you, sir."
User @dudeabided has another question altogether. "Couldn't he at least try to break into a nicer car?" he asks.
