There's plenty of blame to go all around, it's too easy to scapegoat and that does nothing of any good, either...

Agreed.

If you see something shady, report it to the authorities. Pictures preferred. It does take a village... since they're the ones who get to stop the idiot.

I'm sorry we have to be a police state with cameras everywhere, but I see nothing changing for the better anytime soon...

This is exactly why I have a dashcam and back into all my spots. Someone hits me I'm getting their plate on 1080p video.

It's a shame what happened to your car :(

That sucks! Someone got my rear bumper a week ago. I have a feeling I know who did it. Karma is a biotch.

Nope, the one I own will record while parked as well. It is triggered by G force or Audio. People talking beside my car will have the system record memory.

In fact when I take my car downtown Toronto its basically recording all the time.

Lately, I've had the urge to take matters into my own hands if it were to happen again - like bashing in their windshield. They might shoot me, but I feel like bending over and taking it is worse.

EDIT: Then again, in the past year my roommates and I have had a lawn mower, my air compressor, and our 46" TV stolen in addition to my roommate's car being broken into. I guess renter's / home owner's insurance would work... or, you know... moving. But it's not even that bad of an area - for some reason crime seems to thrive in alleyways. I've also considered booby traps.
you definitely need renter's insurance. its usually insanely cheap ~100 bucks a year. Split 3 ways that seems like it would be worth it.

Or move, or buy an AK and sit out on your stoop a lot. I know what you mean about being sick of taking it anymore. Its why when we were kids old timers used to hate us.

Where in MKE do you live? Sound like when I was on 29th amd Mitchell. Had my car stolen twice in 6 month there.
