    Default I Was The Victim Of A Crime.

    AND I WANT JUSTICE.

    Yesterday morning I went to my truck all happy and giddy to go home for easter and was greeted by an unlocked door (with a coat hanger on the ground) and wires right where a neat little radio used to be.

    Thankfully they didn't break any windows or take anything else.

    I drive a a 03 F-150 with about 6 dents in it. I think I was targeted because of my manual locks.

    Oh well, you live and you learn.
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    That is unfortunate. Must have been a small time thief *a slim-jim is much more efficient*, probably kids looking to help bankroll a bag of weed or stealing for kicks. They were probably disappointed not to find a cellphone, laptop, etc... because just a car radio isn't really worth the bother. Check out your town's local pawn shop, you can probably find your radio there.

    I suppose if he's caught in Texas, he'll get the death penalty?

    Breaking into a Ford aught to be punishable by death. That is sacrilege!

    Being IN Texas is the penalty. The death sentence is a release program.

    Anyway, back to a more Frontroomish level of commentary: that sucks Strike. Even if it was only a radio taken, the fact that someone felt they could invade your space and just take what is not theirs is quite disturbing.

    Sucks. :(

    Worst of all no one will ever be caught or punished, I guarantee the cops won't even bother to try.

    We have a very high tolerance for petty crime in this country. It's really unfortunate.

    I love my little Wisconsin town. Nobody locks their cars. When you pass by the schools, all of the bicycles are racked up without chains or cables. Most folks don't even lock the doors on their homes.

    And yet we do have drug problems, namely the crystal meth epidemic that is hitting pretty much all of rural America. I don't really know why property crime is such a non-issue here. It's not as though the population is homogeneous, and it's not like people from cities don't move here (witness the lemur clan).

    lmao, you are in WI?! (I should have known because of the cheddar reference ) lol, I never knew. :P When I get back to the States, maybe I will look you up some time. Which part of WI do you live in? I live in Portage county, in the center.

    Mother ******... if you find out who it is, get some friends together and deliver some frontier-style justice. (Be discreet about it, though, and don't get caught... maybe just break all his car windows or his computer or something.)

    It really sucks that it was because you had manual locks that you got hit. I would prefer manual locks on my car, because I just don't trust something that can break and get me locked inside my car (luckily I have crank windows in case of that emergency) or, worse yet, outside of the car so the only way to fix the situation is to break my window. I would really hate to be punished for exercising basic safety and common sense.

    Better advice, if you find out who did it, go to the law. Do not become a criminal yourself.

    Definitely, just because they robbed you doesn't give you the right to perform criminal acts against them. The bible is a bad book to take advice from, an eye for an eye just leaves everyone blind.

    That said, criminals need to be punished, but this should be done by the police.

    People expect to reap hedonic rewards when they punish an offender, but in at least some instances, revenge has hedonic consequences that are precisely the opposite of what people expect. Three studies showed that (a) one reason for this is that people who punish continue to ruminate about the offender, whereas those who do not punish "move on" and think less about the offender, and (b) people fail to appreciate the different affective consequences of witnessing and instigating punishment.

    I feel your pain. Somebody robbed my motorcycle cover one night this winter - what a pain in the ***.

    And earlier, me and a friend were robbed. Luckily, some other people who also got robbed caught the guy on his way back to his dorm, but they didn't hold him. That made me and my friend, a karate instructor, quite disappointed.

    Portage, wooo, you're up on the same longitude as Green Bay. I'm down in southeast WI, Walworth County to be exact. We're the part of the state that has jobs and money.

    (I have no idea if it's true or not, but a very smart longtime resident told me that if you chopped off the southeastern corner of Wisconsin, the average wage for the state would drop to $10 per hour. That makes us the high-rolling fat cats.)
