We know from the Bible that the Romans used to crucify thieves. In Victorian England they would hang them. The towelheads chop their hands off. I'm noticing a pattern here. Maybe we are doing something, actually a lot of things wrong.

Damn, Rick! I'm truly sorry for the run of bad luck you're having recently.

Yeah, 20+ years, still do it here. I’m in an ultra low crime location, plus our German Shepard is wary of strangers.

I lock up when parked out, also like eyes on the vehicle as much as possible, restaurant, whatever. Certain areas your spidy senses tell you to increase the precautions. We often think of what can happen at midnight in the bad part of town. We now have to increase vigilance midday in the better part of town.

Yes, may be clues with working parking lot cameras, but you end up against ‘the system’. That system is location & policies supported by local politics. Some things won’t change, at least not enough to matter for those involved.

Not much worst than a thief! Luckily you have insurance and no one is hurt. Sucks though for sure!

That's good advice, move far away from California much better states to live in.

Sorry to hear about that Rick. Losing your Dog was bad enough . I have had a vehicle broken into in FL, they gouged me deeply with that one and it was my own fault.

We had a rash of thefts on trucks during wheat harvest. It's not easy to hide a trapwagon when there's only one road every mile. It was a family from moses that got two of one farmers rigs. He was caught by locals and "held" for the sheriff. He wont be back. Another was a hitchhiker who opportunisticly stole another truck. He was caught the next day 40 miles away....same county.

Hope you have similar luck.

I see a lot of people blame themselves. I see a lot of people blame the cops.

What I do not see is a lot of people blame the criminals.

What is it about our current society that it often praises and promotes criminal behavior?
