Stupid criminals have been done to death

In our town, we're so ahead of the game, so into pushing the envelope, that we have stupid victims. I mean, really stupid victims. We get a weekly local paper that covers the crimes in town. When the paper comes, the Crime Watch column is my favorite thing to read. It never fails to entertain me. For example, in today's paper we have this tidbit:

A resident had her unlocked 1999 Jeep Cherokee broken into for the second time in a month. Whe woman told the police that the Jeep was parked in her driveway and was entered between 11 pm and 10:35 am. Missing from the vehhicle was a Prada bag, Canon digital camera and Gucci glasses. Police advised the owner to stop leaving baluables in the car.

How about this one:

The owner of a 1997 Mercedes Benz reported her car broken into at 11:38 am while it was parked in her driveway. The glove compartment of the vehicle was open and the window seal on the driver's side door was tampered with. A pair of Chanel sunglasses, a silver chain with a pendant, a portqable compact disc player, 20 CDs and a pair of prescription glasses were missing.

Now, I can't afford Prada purses and Chanel glasses, but even if I could, I wouldn't leave them in a car sitting in my driveway. You gotta wonder how blaise the citizens of this community are that they leave valuables in their car and then complain about their stupidity to the police when the cars are broken into. I mean, come on folks. Take some responsbility for your actions. Don't leave a purse in your car overnight and think that it's going to be there the next day. That's just stupid.

I never understood why people leave car doors unlocked, windows open, etc... It's like saying "steal my car, please" (unless you live in Montana, where your nearest negihbors are like 3 miles away).

Heck, I'm in agreement. Someone dented up my car with their hands because they couldn't get into it.

Crazy old world but like you say, there's no reason to invite a thief by leaving your doors unlocked.
