buy some stamps.She left her purse on the front seat of her car, she got
back to her car thirty seconds later.Somebody had busted a window and
stole her purse.
Sheesh, she is about forty fiveish years old.She ought to have known

Just last Monday, a tv news reporter (works at the same tv news channel
I was watching) was the victim of a similar crime.
It only takes about one second for a thief to smash a window and grab
something and Gone.

I had my beloved '85 Hachiroku stolen in 1991. It took 3 weeks to find it.
I received a notice from the impound yard if I didn't come get it they
were taking me to court! They had it towed in before I reported it.
The day after it was stolen I had planned to put an alarm in it...
It took me three weeks to round up all the parts; the interior was gutted,
the factory alloys were gone (funny, a month later I saw a set JUST LIKE
IT on a TERCEL!!!!) and rahter than install another 1100 watts of stereo
and 12 speakers, I went with a Kenwood cassette deck and Kenwood speakers
and a hidden Kenwood amp, about $400.
At least they didn't get the amp....and they didn't set off the alarms!
I had mounted the stereo with a removable bracket, and a 12V camera
battery so it could be removed. WHO THE HELL FIGURED THEY WOULD STEAL IT
AT 1PM ON THE 4TH OF JULY?!?!?!
Smashed the window without setting off the alarm. So the next day I went
to Rad Shack and put in a glass breakage detector.

A former neighbor once parked his car in downtown Chicago near the
Merchandise Mart. Came back one day after parking for 15-20 minutes. The
rear door window was busted out and the door was hanging open. Gone off
the rear seat was a leather jacket, desktop computer and a leather
He was so surprised somebody would steal this stuff.
I thought to myself good for you dumbass. They constantly left home
with the garage door wide open, now its their turn to pay.

One time when I was in New Orleans about twelve years ago, somebody
busted a window in my 1978 Dodge van and stold my cheap AM/FM/Cassette
radio out of the dashboard.
