Default Car Jacked...again.

I've been living in the same area for 17 years. My car has never been touched...I use to brag about it....until last November.

I'm in the Morningside and Lawrence area. And before you go off and say "Thats a bad area" , please tell me where in Toronto there isnt an accessible area in Toronto that doesnt have "slums" less than 5 kilometers away.

Anyways, the last time they got my wallet. I guess I became complacent over the years and I always had my wallet in the glove box. They also took my car manual. I got all the $$$ back from the jacked credit cards.

I did a bunch of leg work and presented to the Cops all the necessary info to go into the stores (that they used my cards) , watch the videos and get a picture of the guys. They were not interested! They said there is nothing they could do! WTF!?!?!?

They were back last night and took my boarders GPS (again) and an mp3 player. And some crappy shoes and a garage opener for his GF's house.

Both times my dog barked enough to scare them off from further looting the cars. I had $2000 worth of mics in my trunk the first time.

Is this just something I have to get use to? My buddies wife says she is surprised when she doesnt get jacked!

I wanna go all American on their asses and sit on the roof with a rifle.

Doesn't car jacked mean that you were in the car at the time? Or are you referring to another break-in?

Either way, shitty news man. Come buy a place in the Ottawa Valley. Hardly any crime here.

Ooops...maybe.... I guess it's just a car "break in".

I wish I could. I'm growing tired of the ghetto that is spreading around here.

that sucks raptorman.

I had my old 1986 Jetta broken into 2 times. the thing that killed me was that both times they took nothing of real value. In fact the second time all they stole was a car radio that didn't even work (and it was only a tape deck for fucks sake).

meanwhile i had to get my back window replaced because of it.

anyways, lesson learned: don't keep valuable shit in your car and remove faceplates from your radio at all times when you leave the car parked. The best way to avoid it happening in the future is to make your car as unnatractive to these fuckers as possible.

Thanks fancylad. You feel my pain.

I dont leave anything of value any more, but like you said, they just take whatever they can. I had my softball bats in the hatch, but my dog barked them away.

Calling alarm companies as we speak.

I work at a University.

A co-worker's truck got broken into out in the parking lot. They smashed the passenger side window and stole his parking pass (it hangs form the rear view mirror), which are valid from September until the end of Apirl and was about to expire in four days.

Aside from having to replace his truck window he went to the parking office to report that his pass had been stolen and they charged him $20.00 dollars for "losing" it.

All that because some asshole decided to steal a parking pass that was only valid for four more days.

I happen to have grown up in Raptormans neighborhood. I'm not entirley sure what you are trying to suggest. Perhaps stating that it does not meet the literal term, "ghetto" but I can speak to the area, and it does certainly meet the adopted term.

i hate people....
seriously, i do.

whats wrong with people nowadays?

my truck was broken into 2 months ago at the Go Train station.
the fucker(s) broke the code input thingy (keyless code entry system) - and jimmied the door open.
so not only do i have to waste time getting that replaced, but i have to call my insurance and go through all that hassle.
they also ripped the toneau covering off the truck bed and rummaged through the back of my truck.
luckily i didnt have anything in my truck that was valuable and nothing was missing, but i felt so violated about the whole thing.
it makes me hate people.

i wish i would have caught the guy doing it, because i tell you what - i would have beaten the shit out of him (them) right then and there...
theres nothing that gets me more upset than some complete asshole who tries to steal shit.

We're getting running water finally in another 2 years. So, right now I still shit in a bucket and walk it down to Mississippi River. Sounds awful, but its great exercise.
