Not a very fast runner if my fat ass kept up with him in sweatpants and unlaced boots. He's gonna be real disappointed when he finds out the Sheriff has his methadone.

The real funny part is as I was on the phone with 911, he came back, and ran up the road the other way. I was telling the dispatcher what happened, and I see him jogging along, so I says, "Oh shit, here's the cocksucker right now!" Great fun, great fun. I hope he goes into withdrawals and the coyotes find him before people.

Why were your cars unlocked?

Nearly all car break-ins simply involve scrotebags wandering through parking lots and residential areas, pulling on door handles until they find unlocked cars to pilfer through.

More drastic measures like smashing windows, cutting soft tops, jimmying locks, and employing fancy electronic hacks are comparatively rare.

Because this is the kind of area where it had generally been safe to leave your stuff out. It's only recently started to turn to shit as our fuckhead city council reneged on promises not to allow massive apartment complexes to be built, attracting the chuds to the area. Used to be all farmland out here. Can't wait for the volcano to go, and force all the fucks back to California. Git outta my ashy kingdom!

No such thing. Even if you live in a supposedly "good area", thieves travel.

Simply locking your car doors and removing any valuables from plain sight will drastically reduce your risk of being victimized.

Yep, this.

Don't leave your doors unlocked. "Car Hopping" is popular, and the number of guns that are stolen out of unlocked vehicles is pretty staggering. We deal with a lot of people that insist they live in areas where they shouldn't have to lock their doors, and you'd be amazed at the number of reports that we see handguns, large amounts of cash, computers, etc taken from unlocked vehicles. Guns are stolen at a rate of 9 guns stolen from unlocked vehicles for every one that is taken from a household. One dude hasn't learned his lesson and has had three handguns taken from unlocked vehicles in his driveway in 18 months.

Look up "felony lane gang" for some good info on travelers.

See, the thing is we don't really keep anything in our cars either. They go through it, make a mess (as if it wasn't already a mess) and then get away with nothing. Shit, homedude left a GPS that my brother never took with him when he sold me the car. All he got was $4, also left behind by my brother, and muddy when he fell and lost his dope with his name on it.

Maybe we should keep them locked, but again, I tend not to keep anything out there, certainly not any guns or cameras or computers, so our mindset is rather have the dongs open a door and find nothing, rather than bust out a window and find nothing.

I understand why you may think that, but the fact is that if there's nothing obviously of value visible from outside a locked car, nearly all thieves won't bother to take the significantly higher risk of breaking a window just to pilfer through and see what might be inside. Too much risk for too little reward.

Pilfering through cars is almost always done on easy target unlocked cars. The typical thief will try the door handle, see that it's locked, peer in and see there's nothing immediately apparent to be worth taking a higher risk of breaking in forcefully, and move on to find an easier target.

However, if the door is locked but there's something readily visible that makes it worthwhile to take the additional step of breaking a window, some thieves will do so.

Hence the two easy steps of both locking your doors and removing all valuables from the car (or at least out of sight).

Yep. Most stolen guns are taken from unlocked vehicles. And most stolen cars are unlocked vehicles with the keys left inside them.

But is it really a break-in when the door is left unlocked? To me, that's almost an invitation to get your shit taken away.

Thieves want the easiest targets, breaking shit creates noise and attention, which they don't want.

Also, I'm a home builder. Both neighborhoods I've worked in these past few months have gotten me to one conclusion: people seem to enjoy leaving their cars outside while their garage is littered with junk. Even people with expensive German cars just leave them outside.

I don't understand it at all. I have a 2003 Honda Civic, it's not worth much but is kept parked in the garage. I leave the windows open and the doors unlocked. I can leave stuff in the car and not worry about it.

"Breaking in" doesn't necessarily involve forcefully breaking/damaging/destroying something like a lock or window to gain entry. Some laws define "breaking" as merely "breaking the plane" between the public exterior and the private interior. Some laws define "breaking" as including employing even the slightest amount of force, like pushing open a door or lifting a window. Some laws also include gaining entry through fraud or deception as "breaking".

In Arkansas, the specific statute is "Breaking or Entering", which simply involves going from where you're allowed to be (the public "outside") into where you're not allowed to be (the private "inside") of a structure, vehicles, or container, with the purpose of committing a further crime inside, like theft. No force required.

So pilfering through an unlocked car can still be considered "breaking in". (I guess technically, it would be the "or entering" portion of the AR statute, but colloquially nobody ever says "Some asshole entered my car", instead saying "Some asshole broke into my car", even if said asshole simply opened an unlocked door.)


But yeah, if you leave your cars unlocked, it makes you much more likely to be victimized.

Last time I looked, door locks on cars were standard equipment, not options.

I use them, just like I use my turn signals.

But if you just don't use them, then you don't ever have to worry about the hassle and expense of regularly replacing your lock filters or turn signal fluid.

Instant savings!

Hey, it's a free country and growing up with a friend who had a convertible, he left it unlocked as well - since they could easily cut the top to get in.

Visiting WA is interesting, the tweakers and stoners are all over in the built up areas - even the change in the past 7 years is astounding. I'm thinking a good Lahar bath might be the only thing able to save it.
