After witnessing the beauty of last nights sunset my calm was
shattered with the news that our juvenile car theft epidemic
is still going strong. And according to the talking heads, most
can be prevented.
Seems people still leave their cars running with the car
unlocked or leave a key hidden in the vehicle. While this may
make things easier for the owner it is an opportunity for the
thieves among us.
Take all the keys out of your vehicle and lock it. Don’t
unlock it unless you are ready to use it. For the kids running
around trying door handles, and open one is an invitation to
jump in and see what they can find.
As someone who always locks the car and takes the key I cannot
understand those who don’t. One has to remember that the vast
majority of the kids who steal the cars aren’t even old enough
to drive. They’ll probably wreck it and you will be the one to
pay the bill.
I feel the laws giving more loopholes in favor of the
juveniles is going in the wrong direction. The politically
correct bull we’ve been hearing has to stop. Yes, there are
bad kids out there. And no, more love and compassion won’t
fix the problem.
It is time for some tough love. Put the fear of God into them
and let them know they won’t be getting a free ride for their
crimes. What’s the attitude going to be when these thrill
seeking idiots kill a pedestrian? Or an innocent driver is
severely injured due to the inability of these kids to drive
We need to take the cuffs off the police and put them on
the judges who won’t follow the rule of law but instead
listen to the politically correct interpretation of the law.
Perhaps a few days in jail now would work better than a safe
space. Why aren’t these juveniles financially responsible when
they wreck someone else s car? It’s time for the adults in the
room to say ENOUGH! 600 vehicles since the start of the year
have been stolen which makes me wonder how high the number
has to be for people to be demanding answers.
Enjoy our Monday, it’s looking to be a good one. Now I need
more coffee and a leftover pizza is calling to me.
