So if you're reading that... you may want to stop breaking into people's vehicles and posting pics of it online.
P.S. Turn off the overhead light.
My car has only been broken into once. They took my stereo and left a PS2 (brand new at the time) and a crapload of games sitting in the back seat. Was a long drive home.. didn't feel like unloading right away. That was the night that my pet spider died (brown recluse named "Fuckshit").
are you by chance in Baltimore?
I've never been to Baltimore. I lived in College Station Texas for a while, just after Katrina and Rita. There were a lot of desperate people in CS around that time.
My car was broken in to so many times I stopped locking it and, unless it was going to rain, just kept the windows rolled down, or the top down. I got tired of replacing windows.
I had a Ford Mustang.
My radio was stolen along with a bunch of burned CD's.
My center console was stolen along with my air conditioning duct work.
My airbags were stolen.
My convertible top was cut open for some reason. (The car was unlocked)
Someone tried, but failed, to steal the seats, the gauges, the wheels, the trunk lid, and the spoiler (all separate incidents.)
Almost everything that was removable from the car was, at some point, the subject of a theft or an attempted theft.
People tried to steal the whole car but couldn't manage to start it (kill switch). I caught a guy doing just that. I lazily told him to get out and lazily called the cops.
I know a guy who had his crappy car broken into more than once. The last time they left the door open in the middle of winter so he found it full of snow in the morning.
Worked in Baltimore, can confirm. My favorite was when someone smashed my window to steal my handicap parking tag and then I got a parking ticket.
In baltimore about a month ago i walked into a store for all of 3 minutes. In that time someone broke into my car to steal the change from my center console. Felt so violated.
I was in Baltimore last weekend and it made me very sad seeing what could be such a cool city in such a gross state. While we were there a homicide detective got murdered. I spent a while on /r/Baltimore and got even sadder. It's a weird thing that people post revelations that they traveled to other cities and realized that they don't have to feel like they're in danger "whenever they leave their houses." Other people posting about wanting to leave because they don't feel safe getting shouted at and cussed out in the comment section. Hopefully they can turn it around.
