This is so true last year 17 cars in my neighborhood got robbed in one night most locked and had windows broken. Police told me i was lucky mine was unlocked. i live in a culdesac and looked up the street to see everyone with vacuums getting all the glass.people are desperarte and are bold the only safe thing to do is remove all objects from site chances are they are scouting which cars to get.

Right Sue and it shouldn't matter if the car was locked or unlocked when they stole from it ! Fact remains that they did the crime. And Make up your mind LA RUE !

OK...In a real world, anyone should be able to leave their windows and doors open or unlocked without becoming a victim of crime. We all should be able to leave anything, anywhere with out the fear of theft. I get that!!!I really do. But, if you want to live in that world, be prepared to become a victim of something. Some writers commented that the victim should not be called an idiot. I disagree....If you don't protect yourself and your things that you hold dear{ unlocked cars and homes...money gift cards or cash in sight, ipods, wallets and keys etc.} "You are an idiot" Wake up America and "Get it" Punish the law breakers, but, be accountable for you own actions or the lack there of. Thats all.
