She was asking for it!

To prevent vehicle theft, police issuing tickets to people who leave their cars running.

    Oh, look we are becoming England. Only there, the Bobbies will enter your home through an unlocked door or window to advise you about burglars. Didn’t we kind of separate ourself from Britain way back in the past?

    I see cops do that ALL the time. Think they’ll get ticketed?….

    This morning, while getting a biscute, the guy there in the shop had his car running while he came in.

    Lights on, car running, but no crooks present.

    Sooner or later his car will be jacked that way.

  5. “The Denver police officer who left the cruiser running unattended in front of her home Monday morning is now the subject of an internal investigation. Ironically, it was stolen the same day that Denver police held a news conference to warn motorists about leaving their cars running and unattended.”

    Many departments have policies requiring that vehicles be left running. The fire dept that I worked out required all vehicles be left running when they were out of the station.

    I’ve left mine running with the doors locked. Does that count?

    What about leaving guns in a car where they could be stolen while in, for example a post office or a school?

    Is any of this properly any of the government’s business whatsoever?

    I am a horrible homophobe, and every time I read about a law like this one, I think of Willem Dafoe’s line in Boondock Saints, “What a fag”.

    For this one I’m hearing Senior Drill Instructor Hartman rant about unlocked footlockers: “If it wasn’t for dickheads like you, there wouldn’t be any thievery in this world, would there?”
