Default Kids today are just plain STUPID!!

Last night my car was broken into. No damage luckily so it was probably my fault that I forgot to lock the doors since I usually haven't needed to for the past 12 years I've lived here.

I go outside this morning and see the passenger door open. I think this is odd so I go to close it. Then I noticed a garage door opener sitting in the cup holder. I didn't even know I had one in the car! It must have been in my armrest or something. I didn't think much about it. Then I noticed my other radar detector is missing. It was a 7 year old cheap Cobra. My Valentine is still suctioned to the windshield. Looking further I then noticed my Sunglasses are also missing. That's the part that annoyed me most as they were prescription, but it was a cheap wallyworld frame!

I'm pretty certain it was some neighborhood kids because it seems mostly harmless and sadly I have to say the quality of the neighbors have gone down as the community gets older.

But this is just plain STUPID!!! Of the things taken, a cheap Cobra detector instead of the valentine. They didn't even take the power cord or suction thingy. And a pair of prescription sunglasses!! There were certainly more valuable items like the toll tag, CDs, phone chargers and a bluetooth adapter!! Heck, why not the garage door opener and come back later to get the tvs and video games!?!?!?

Kids today are just not raised right and are down right stupid!

Some kids don't do it to actually use or sell the stuff... Just to commit mischief and get a thrill. That's why they take stupid stuff. Others miss good stuuf because it's dark and they're moving fast.

Obviously whoever did it was too young or dumb to recognize anything of value in your car. They'll feel dumb trying to wear the glasses and then realize they can't even see out of them!

Sorry to hear about your neighborhood as well, it's a sad day when you can't even feel safe at home without an IDIOT messing it up.

Hope this isn't speaking from experience? If they were moving fast they should have taken the good stuff in plain sight. They spent time digging thru the console, glove box and visor to take the crap out.

I REALLY missed my glasses today. It'll be at least a week before I can get new ones!

Sorry to hear about this, but leaving your doors unlocked makes this 50% your fault. There's nothing new about kids roaming and opening cars with unlocked doors. I know you're upset, but saying that "kids today are just not raised right and are down right stupid" is an ignorant statement. And yes, before you might wish the same fate on me, I've had more than one car in DFW broken into. Windows sliced multiple times on a Jeep (that they could have just unzipped, lol) and a window broken on another car. It's just life, no matter where you live, and not just "these days" as people like to bitch about. At least you still have your windows.

Someone broke into my car back in December..

Stolen: radar detector mount, radar detector power cord, dummy cigarette lighter.

Not stolen: brand new strut brace, Cobb OBDII dongle, tire pressure gauge, tire pump

Window ended up being the most expensive thing to replace. Haven't used a radar since then.

I can certianly feel for anyone that had the window broken. That is probably the biggest hassle. And you have to deal with the insurance IF it cost more then your deductible.

Couple years ago someone broke into my car while I was at work. Broke in the pass window, ripped off the face of my cd player, didnt get the cd player out (it was a 00 civic si so the radio was BOLTED to the inside of the dash and required un bolting other dash parts) but broke the console trying to get it out. Left my Digital camera, all my cd's and my passport radar detector on the windshield. So all they did was break all my ****, didnt even take it.

^ I had something like that happen with my STi. Broke the window, no faceplate, so they left the radio, but still tried to get it out without success. Instead, they went through the movies/xBox games in the back floorboards and took one (Fusion Frenzy), leaving the other ten.

Plus they took my stock shift knob.

My car was broken into in December.

The parts that were replaced:

1. window
2. door skin (they dented the door at some point)
3. window track (they didn't catch the window clean when breaking it and hit the upper channel)

all of that damage for:

...
..
a $5 flashlight

maybe they will be able to use it next time to see that there is nothing of value in the car for them.

I had someone break my window to get in and get my stereo. They left the Passport 8500 and when they popped off the cover for the receiver I bet they got pissed cause the radio ended up broken. They tried to just yank it out of the dash with out unscrewing it. I purposely put several different types and sizes of screws holding the stereo in. I bet he didn't have an allen wrench.

This.

Nothing ever happens like that in our neighborhood...


...until spring break and summer.


The little idiots are bored and they end up breaking into cars and houses for small crap that fits into their backpacks...has happened all over the Copperfield area.

Summer/SpringBreak ends and it's all over.


Knock on wood it hasn't happened to use...both cars garaged and security signs in front/back.

Sorry to hear that man. I bought my car in 04 and only two weeks in she was broken into through the passenger front window. Dumb $#&% only took my $30 radar and left the cord. I didn't care about the radar, the window itself cost me $250.
I hope you catch these kids red handed one day and teach them a lesson they'll remember for the rest of their lives.

I had someone try to break into an S2000 I used to own. They slashed the top twice before I came out with good ol' Snubby(snub nosed 357). Didn't get a chance to see their faces...only the knife and screwdriver they dropped before running away...Ended up costing me around a grand to replace the top.
