People who leave valuables in unlocked cars almost deserve to have them stolen!

That thinking is just wrong. So next time your neighbor has their hands full, or is sick & forgets to lock their door, Watch out for people like Carol.

Carol, I can't believe you posted that. when 1 has to worry about locking up everything just so that someone will not come in to invade their privacy. Remember it's the thief who is committing a crime

How about we focus on trying to be more vigilent and covering each other's backs rather than verbally assulting each other online.
