To those that have to leave valuables in their cars for whatever reason, you may want to see if your car has a trunk lock disable. My 2002 car had it, so I'm only guessing newer cars do as well. Sometimes there is a switch in the glove box that can be turned on to disable the trunk button on the door from working and the glove box can then be locked. Now I know if they really want in, they will do whatever, but sometimes that extra work will have them move on to easier targets.

Marie: There is no death penalty for theft. If you shoot someone for stealing, you may become a defendant faster than them!

Marie, that is a horrible comment. You're basically saying set the Section 8 community on fire with no escapees. That's beyond inappropriate, and I am horrified that anyone could say that. Additionally, why are people so quick to blame these people for crime - like it had to come from the people in the poor part of town? That's not appropriate either. And, I'm assuming you've never done anything stupid like leave something valuable where others could get it. You must be perfect except for the HORRIBLE truth that you just sit at your computer and advocate death to those you consider undesirable. DB - yes, side window.

When we lived in the city, our house was broken into while we were at church. I thought that was terrible, but it was the push I needed to get out. Thank God, and I do, it WAS while we were out at church and not while we were home. I'm pretty sure the church thefts weren't by the boy scouts as part of a turf war...

Sounds like the work of Cossaboon and Hoffman.
