I’ve got a story for this.
Years ago I parked my shitty old Chevy s10 in the parking lot of a friends apartment while we drank and played games. In the morning I came out to a broken window a busted up but still present stereo, and my glove box strewn all over. First off my doors weren’t locked and my slider was open. Second they missed the cup holder full of change and while they fucked up the stereo it was still there and worked. Mostly. People are fucking idiots and they got a $5 knife and a four pack of spark plugs for their trouble.
Years ago I lived in California. And break ins were consistent with were you lived/parked your car. Live or park in a crappy crime infested neighborhood and have nice things expect them to be taken. Just being honest. I now live in Wisconsin people leave their car running in winter time and go into stores. Or leave bicycles unchained outside. Where you live/park does have something to do with also. I choose to live in a place where me and my family feel safe. Not all of Wisconsin is that way, but where I live/work or go to town is. Sorry to hear about Asheville.

Well If you got the number to the hot line that helps with my father in law dieing and there being no one else here to take care of my elderly mother in-law that cant move and we cant abandoned... and not so much an issue now but what I meant by something always happens. When I was pay check to paycheck like a lot of people its hard to move and when you would say up something always happened. car broke down heating and air went out. rent got raised.... something always took your money and trapped you here. But was not and still is not just me. When I was going through medical school lots of people moved here and I would hear how the heck do you leave this town. I was you don't it sucks you in and never lets you leave. I think this is why so many here are so unhappy cause they are trapped.... Its like a unsolved mystery and should be on tv like the Bermuda triangle . But instead of planes and boats it traps your soul.

Probably to serious for the internet...

I love Asheville. I’d move there in a sec, but instead I’m trapped where I am now. I guess we’re all trapped to some degree, and the grass always seems greener somewhere else.

Veteran here. Have you ever tried to straight kick in a front door? Seriously tried it? So not that simple. Most of them try to use pry bars because it takes a lot less effort. Just a point of order I wanted to point out. :)



LOL yeah I dont lock my home doors either unless im out of town. Again if they are gonna break in.. takes a foot to the door and its open. Then you are replacing a door frame and door as well all your stuff got stolen anyway. If someones plan is to break in they are not gonna go through all the trouble and then go oh well the doors locked. Nope they are just gonna cause more damage.

Growing up a buddy of mine had an expensive car stero set up. He was paranoid someone was gonna steal it cause in his car it was fairly easy to just pul it out. so he did all this bolting it in and locking his doors and so on. so came the night it got stolen. so instead fo just yanking the stereo and going.. they pried on the door, smashed the window. Destroyed his dash completely and tore up many other things getting the stereo out because of his theft deterrent features ... cost him thousands where if he just left it alone they would have just yanked the stereo and been gone with almost no damage.

I really can't tell if you are being serious or not, so I will just say sorry for your troubles.

The guy has several people on this thread who claim to have knowledge of the topics he claims he wishes to "have a good conversation about" and in response tells them they're "silly" implying these responders are stupid and don't know what they're talking about. That tells me he thinks he knows better than everyone else. There's nothing else to say on this thread.

Dude - it's 2020. Lock your doors.
There are people wandering around at night just searching for your place and places like yours.

your comment implied I was crazy and making stuff up so I replied with the truth. Things happen all the time that keep people trapped in a town. hell there are movies about such topics.

Why is my opinion any less valid then theirs? The excat same things you just said about my opinions can be said about the ones who reply. why are they right and Im wrong? why does that immediately make this thread invalid? as for when I said they are silly well on that topic I know im right people really dont understand their insurance policy's. There isnt a policy out there that covers personal property inside a car. And as far as locked or unlocked... please show me the exact wording in your insurance policy cause mine dosent and I have asked my insurer. does not matter. And for the ones saying your car can be ticketed and towed for being unlocked... come on man I have never heard of that and seriously doubt it. so why am I wrong because I don't agree and why are they right?

I have also given many examples of why I feel the way i do. while others are just saying im stupid and people will live in my car and crap in it... but im the one not wanting a serious conversation?

Unless your in a real.nice neighborhood I wouldn't suggest it even though nothing is in it some punks might try to steal it or a homeless person might poop in it(lol! That is classic!)in a big urban area but that is just me. Cruisers have been stolen around here, and this is the sticks, one got driven into a lake. We are in crazy times for sure.

I have stuff to steal in my car even if I have no other items. My car mods for instance, my GT floor mats, Carbon fiber steering wheel if they have a lot of time on their hands, GT trunk mat. Mustang seatbelt pads hell given enough time and I am not around they can steal my Sync 3 if they know how and are determined enough if I am gone for several hours. Hell if you have the digital gauge cluster and I was a thieving scumbag you bet your ass I would be stealing that to use on my car and if not I would be selling it for a good price.

Trust me man you want to lock your doors when you can. I don't in my garage but outside that I do.
