Car theft does not, rightly, carry the Death sentence.

The root of the problem lies in the inability of the Police in some jurisdictions (worldwide, not just the USA) to protect the life and property of individuals. This in turn is a fundamental failing of Government. Indeed, the protection of the individual is the primary function of Government.

In the USA in 2012, 88.1% of vehicle theft cases were not cleared (i.e. someone arrested and handed over to the court system), i.e. In 8 out of 9 cases, no one was apprehended. This is the National average, but also the average for cities the size of Missoula.
