Way back around 1972 I lived in an upscale neighborhood with my parents. I had a pretty nice Cal-Look bug, which got parked outside every night. Come to find out that one night EVERY bug in the neighborhood had it roof smashed in. If you know bugs, you know how easy it is to jump up and down on the roof and crush it. Mine was thankfully spared. It sitll amazes me that mine was the only one......dont know if they ever caught the little morons, but after that mine was garaged. People, sheesh! And dont get me started on "tagging" or "keying". Back in my day "keying" meant you were gonna change your locks.

I once came out of my high school to find the drivers side window of my truck smashed out.  Luckily, they took my bowling ball (I had a league after school that day), and left the Ipod that was sitting in a tray in my dash.  It honestly made me sick to see something, even this small, happen to the truck I had put countless hours of work and care into.  Even though to most people it is still a beater, I was ready to kill the idiot who did it and then some.  I didn't even bother reporting it to administration, since the city is so scared of pissing off the gangs they would have just let it go anyway.  At some point it just seems like you have to take matters into your own hands, but then again I'm sure I would have ended up with the heafty punishment they deserved.  It really sucks that things like this have to happen, but that is the reality in to today's world, no respect for the possessions of others.

I get a call from the place I store my cars for the winter. Telling me I need to come in because they had a break in. well I knew it couldn't be good. I show up and my heart sank. I guess since they couldn't steal anything because no batteries and fuel shut offs they decided to smash the windows out of the 51 dodge and steal the ram off the hood. They left my camaro pretty much alone except for stealing the radio. Why do people have to trash things? I got to think it was just kids/teenagers because I wouldn't think adults would do something like that. If I can say anything good it's just flat glass so it won't be hard to replace.

 

Are you kidding?

The answer is obvious, you have accrued more possessions than you should rightfully have.  Success to any degree is the Devil.

The thieves are merely trying to redistribute what should have been theirs' in the first place.

You owed those cars to the thieves.

 

2 cars in storage, oh my god how UnEuropean, how UnGlobalOrder, how UnNew American, how UnSocialistic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you had only rightfully been taxed more in the first place, you never would have had them.

 

What??  You say you were raised by caring loving parents and to do something like this would never even occur to you?  Sucker-r-r-r-rr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was the America of reason and compassion.  The America where people had kids because they wanted them.  A long gone era.

Your parents obviously also had too much time on their hands not to completely ignore the responsibility of having, caring, loving and raising you.

It is all your fault, maybe even your parents fault, not that of the thieves.

 

Why is it that the criminals who commit this type of crime do not conveniently shoot themselves????

Where is the National Public Outrage??

 

Maybe we should ban Public Storage Units.  Certainly this would stem the flow of crime and protect us all.

Dang right CadillacPat, that really is how kids see it now adays.  A lot of the kids I go to school with can't understand how someone can have enough money to own a few nice things, and even more they feel like they should have them to for nothing!  It amazes me to know end how angry kids get when someone makes a bunch of money by working for it, and they just demonize them for what they have earned.  You bring something nice around, chances are it will get stolen or destroyed, and nothing will happen about it.  It's sad but true.

Pretty funny Pat. Just  make sure there is a "waiver" granted for model kits to protect them from "redistribution".  :lol:

Dave, so sorry this happened to you!  In two separate incidents I had my '56 Chevy stolen and another time, the windows broken while it was parked on the street.  At least when people steal things, they have a motivation to get money. Vandalism is a worse thing in my mind because it's completely unproductive and destructive.

 

There's no sense trying to figure out the reason. One guy is angry at society, the others are just followers? Who knows what's inside their heads?  There is no justification and you never know what people are going to do.  As I sit here the TV news just reported that some lady was stabbed while shopping in Bath, Bed and Beyond while holding her baby in suburban Middletown, NJ. Scary because that's right where my relatives live.  Quiet, safe suburban town. The 19 year old jerk who did it was followed to his apartment and immediately arrested.  You just never know.

I had my drag car stolen from me back in 2008 right in front of my house without a trace. It was never found. I lived in a townhouse at the time and had no garage for protection,but I did have a detachable steering wheel,removable ECU,and a hidden kill switch. Our best guess is it was pushed from the lot and trailered or put on a flatbed. If driven or started it would have been heard for at least 1/2 mile away especially being that it was summer and the windows were open on the house. Now I have a garage for the current car,but I hope to never have the feeling that I had ever again when I saw that all the years of hard work and cash were all for nothing.
