Why bother?

    Good afternoon everyone. I want To know of anyone else has problems with crime in their neighborhoods? Last night while I was at the gym someone decided it would be ahold idea to smash my car window in and grab a pair of jeans I had sitting there along with a company issued cell phone. My car was the only car affected. And a few nights ago someones house around mine was broken j to to as well. It just makes me wonder why we even bother having nice things if some jerk is going to come along and ruin the things we work so hard for.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't buy nice things, we are all entitled to nice things. I am saying   However, we need to be more cautious of our surroundings and what we keep out in eye sight in our vehicle.

    Please let me know if anyone else is encountering these problems.

      They're encountered almost everywhere

      Why on earth did you leave your phone in your car in full view? If you did you either have a naieve view on society or actually wanted to have them stolen?

        It was not in plain view. They were clipped to my pants but rolled up into a ball. I do not have a naieve view on society, just wish people wouldn't be such scum bags And thought that I could leave my things in my car without some asshole ruining it

          Our community has been under alert for the last few weeks about armed break-ins in the daylight hours. This is very unusual for us. But what it means is that we take extra precautions. The days of leaving my front door unlocked are gone now.

          We must anticipate the worst and prepare a plan B for when a plan A fails. It's unfortunate, but that's the world we live in.

          We have lots of posters up in public car parks (especially sports centers where people vanish for an hour or more) where I live to say do not leave anything in your car in plain view as theives operate in the area

          Sadly where I live the police would therefore claim you took a chance

          I would like to see some form of Jewish law- eye for an eye etc for thieves so maybe in the case of theft they could lose a finger or something along those lines. Sadly that's never going to get me into Politics with such as stance.

      I feel sorry for you, Uneducated Opinion, for having lost your pair of jeans and a cell phone to petty thieves.

      Stealing is turning out to be a way of earning a living in many societies around the world. These thieves just look like you and I – they look smartly dressed, well educated and civilized. My observations tell me that two out of every ten people are thieves. Every worship day, these thieves will each carry a bible and they will be in church like everyone else, and even in the church they’ll still 'take' from you if you are not careful.

      The remedy maybe to practice defensive living where you view every stranger as a probable thieve unless proved otherwise.

    It isn't a comfortable feeling when we become a victim of a crime sad sorry to hear this happened. Society over all seems to have degenerated but least not everybody is like that smile maybe the police will consider patrolling these 'establishments' more big_smile it's hard trying to understand that attitude ' he can afford the loss' tongue

    The last 2 times I've gone to the store, I've seen cop cars in front of houses between here and there. Domestic disputes or break-ins, I don't know.
