Needless to say I was pretty furious to have my car damaged and my property stolen. The thief was obviously an idiot. He forgot to take the power cord to the DVD system, so it will not even play for him. Of course the worst part was having to explain to my children what had happened and why they no longer had a "TV in the car."
One of the other disturbing things that came out of all of this was that it led Crystal to discover CrimeReports.com. We went on there and put in our address. It is truly disturbing to see how much crime goes on. It made me depressed to think that maybe we have picked a bad place to live. I scrolled around the Bay Area, and everywhere was pretty bad. Even very expensive areas like Los Gatos showed a huge amount of theft, burglaries, etc. in just the last week.
