Thievery in civic carparks

By arb - 21 September 2007 31

I had my car window smashed today (Thursday) in the car park next to civic pool and a GPS unit (which was hidden) stolen. There were several other items of value in the car which weren’t touched. To the sh*theads who did this deed: I hope you burn in hell. Anyone with any information which may lead to the recovery of my property please get in touch – annoyed@herring.ath.cx and a reward may be considered for information leading to the successful recovery of my GPS unit. And a note to every honest person out there – don’t leave GPS brackets attached to your car windscreen. My unit was out of sight, so the break-in was done on the off chance I had hidden it somewhere in the car – they got lucky.

What’s Your opinion?

This is irony. Almost a week after the initial post here, I had the inside of my car trashed. And a whole lot of stuff stolen. This was in a hotel underground car park in a large industrial city just south of Sydney. Now (5 weeks later) I still have no car as the lowlife have managed to bend the steering column. I await parts. Insurance covers the car damage, but the stuff nicked from inside is just my responsibility. PDA, tools, coins, the baby wipes, GPS etc….. As usual, there is nothing the constabulary can do. I know it is not life threatening, and I should get over it etc etc… but I am still really p*$$ed off that the scum get away with this rubbish, and I have no car. And I have contributed to the nations rising insurance costs……And it cost a shirtload to replace the personal items.
..sigh

He’s probably a happy chappy due to all the happy substances he takes, so he doesn’t notice what’s going on anyway.

This idea that everyone’s insured so theft doesn’t matter is a disgusting view. Premiums have skyrocketed in recent years, and once you’ve bought the thing you wanted, you don’t want to have to go find another, even in the happy event that you are insured. And if you DO claim, watch your premium at renewal time!

Don’t worry Arb, He’s obviously either a shithead that steals aswell, or he’s a paper pushing knob on good money.
Stung, sure you get over it, but a lot of people don’t. The idea of someone in your house, going through your personal items, not only scares the crap out of them, but affects them for the rest of their life. Some people never get over it!

haha people like me, ok.. yea my stuff wasn’t insured either – I just moved on and got on with my life.

I don’t think I’m small-minded for that, my last post wasn’t exactly serious if you couldnt tell mate, I’m just trying to think of it from the perspective of the thief..

Stung:

And what about when insurance won’t cover it? The GPS was not a fixture in my car so it isn’t covered and it’s not worth claiming the window repair as it’s less than my excess.

Comments like “I can just take it and the person gets the money back on insurance anyway” just goes to show what a small minded individual you are. It’s people like you that is what’s wrong with today’s society.

haha Ok I guess I am condoning theft really – if you can get away with it, then why not go for yours.. beats paying for stuff! When I got broken into I was mad at the thieves, but then I also thought “Well, good on ’em I guess. They got me good.”

Instead of sitting back and waiting for things to happen these people take charge of their lives and just take what they want, which is admirable in a way. They think Hmmm I can either save for a while and work my ring off like a sucka to get that big LCD tv, or I can just take it and the person gets the money back on insurance anyway..

@Stung I don’t want the perpetrators dead like some of you lot..

Actually, the terms used were ‘burn in hell’ which has been used as a non-actioned threat by Christians to vent irritation for the last few hundred years or so, give or take some Crusades and a few dozen witches who got to apply a more literal interpretation.

BigDave noted that he would do some burning of perpertrators himself, yet hardly wishing them dead, although Pandy’s comment is bravado inspired atmospheric pollution, yet dead wasn’t mentioned.

Are you crossing the threads ?

NEVER cross the threads !

Stung – I really think is some way you ARE condoning theft. Simply because you just dont care. For some people losing a car stereo or having a window smashed is alot to them.. simply because they cant afford to replace them or they either didn’t have insurance or the provider still wants to charge them for repairs.

I used to park in the Convention Centre carpark 6-7 days a week. Even with a useless parking attendant cars were getting broken into on that much of a regular basis, that the Casino security would check on the carpark. Police never bothered showing up not once when we called them. Not even the day where up to 20 cars had been broken into.

@Stung:
“So you are condoning theft as an acceptable practice?
I suggest you wait until you are the victim of a crime and see how you feel then.”

Yea I have had my car broken into and had my stereo, sunnies, CDs, and a backpack full of other personal items stolen. Funnily enough, I got over it pretty quick and while it was an inconvenience, I don’t want the perpetrators dead like some of you lot..

Tie them to a speed camera and then set fire to them. 2 birds with one flaming tyre.
