It's kind of hard to feel bad when people keep making themselves easy targets. Takes one second to lock your car. Yes, they still might break in but generally they just walk checking to find vehicles that are unlocked. Or just simply take valuables out every day if you don't want to lock it.

You are correct, Wayne! Everyone needs to be locking their vehicles/removing valuables. I remember last year people were leaving their vehicles running/keys in unlocked vehicles outside local 7-11s while they ran into the store real quick and people were getting their cars stolen.
