Just because my car is unlocked does not make my stuff yours to take!
You vil be forcibly moteevated to buy ze top anz ze doors.
When my truck was broken into, all the doors were locked except the right passenger door. The cop said it was "probably" slim-jimmed because all the other doors were locked and there was no signs of forced entry. I always use the clicker which opens and close all the doors at the same time and no one had even opened any of the other doors that week.
So it is possible to get into a car fairly easy without any signs of force if you know what you are doing. They hit my neighborhood and the cop said all the car on the street were the same way.
So I assume you don't wear a watch, as that might entice someone to mug you. Why would you advocate doing anything to a "victim"?
Your post made my head hurt just reading it.
Call AAA a few times for locking your keys in your car and you will learn several ways to get into your vehicle without signs of forcible entry.
Next they'll be trying to pass ordinances saying you have to have an alarm on your house. Assinine. Granted, making it easier for the car thief is not too bright, but 99% of the time he'd have broken a window or forced the lock to get in anyway. I wonder how many car thieves have broken a window out of habit to get in only to find out the car was already unlocked.
Sure it does don't you know we got laws now to make sure you can't tempt the thieves.
It used to be that when a crime was committed you had a criminal and a victim.
Now when a crime is committed you end up with only criminals and no victims.
Why do I think that this is exactly what our government wants?
The person who stole the goods from the car IS the 'victim' because he was underprivileged and now will be given a handout from the government because of his misfortune, which is always the person who owns the car that was stolen from's fault.
My blood pressure will recede slowly over the next 12 minutes. Until then, I will not reopen this thread.
In related news, Philly-suburb PD has a new definition of "rape." If you look or are dressed hot, according to a judge, you were asking for it.

(Honestly - sometimes GT shocks me. And it shouldn't by now.)
Quit over-reacting. There's nothing there that even implies that the criminals punishment would be affected at all if the car was unlocked.
I drive a soft top jeep and the top comes off and stays off all summer. Does that mean I get fined everyday because I'm tempting thieves to much? Ludicrous.
I'm just making a simple comparison of demonizing - or even criminalizing - behavior of law abiding citizens.
I don't live anywhere NEAR Silly, but I prefer a free society. Just shocked that people on GT say things like "Good. Police have bigger things to worry about than doing a zillion police reports on stuff out of unlocked cars being stolen."
