"A CD player and $1,600 worth of compact discs were stolen from one; a $2,000 laptop computer was taken from the other. "

Wow. I cannot believe that people leave stuff like that in a car. Thieves will take ANYTHING. I've had two BIBLES taken from my cars over the years.

Who leaves original CDs in a car? That's what CD burners are for. Leaving a laptop out overnight isn't particularly bright, either.

I leave my car door unlocked all of the time-at the store, at home, in bad neighborhoods- and no one will steal it...take my car-PLEASE!!!

Man, give these people a break, they've been tramatized by these events. Was she really hit with a BB gun or by a pellet?

Leaving the doors unlocked on your car is still stupid if you don't leave the windows down too. Criminals won't check the lock first and STILL bust up the door or window.

I couldn't lock the doors in my old car-- didn't have a key for them. Sometimes if I was just running in someplace for a minute I'd even leave the keys in the ignition. I figured if anyone was desperate enough to steal my pos car, they needed it way more than I did.

Who the hell keeps $1,600 worth of CDs in the car anyways? I hardly ever have more than 10 in there at any one time and they're almost all copies of the originals.

I've kept, something like 6-10 CDs and like 4 copies/mp3s. Sounds like an insurance scam to me on that one.

Let's see.... $1,600... CDs at lets say avg $10-$12 for new releases and all of them are of such pop music... 133.3-160 CDs in the car. Did they have one of them fancy 120 disk changers?

The blotter is so great :) It's like Sim City 3000 where you get messages when the pee-ons are unhappy.

I live in san francisco now, and crime there is nothing like here. I saw a car today that had a sign on the back window that said "no stereo in car, please dont break window."

I guess I am living in the past for I only have cassette tapes in my truck. No sense wasting good money buying a CD when the music is free to tape on the radio. $1600 in CDs... wish I had money like that to blow!
