Just like the people who leave thousands of dollars worth of electronic gadgets and cash in plain site, unlocked. Then wonder why someone stole it all.

This was my friend who had her car stolen. You would think in broad daylight in Fairfield, CT you would be able to run into a store and not worry about some scumbag stealing your car. She is not an idiot!!

Hmmmm, Mr. Arnold. There has only ever been one execution in all of CT for "burglary." That was in 1768 in New Haven County. Would you care to edit your statement at all?

You would think in broad daylight your friend would be smart enough to take her keys with her. Just sayin'.
