Junkies don't care if they're publicly humiliated.
Steven Pirko was featured on crime stoppers a number of times and it did nothing to shame him.
If it did, Chris Ausman might still be alive today.
Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?

How will spending more money on policing reduce crime?

People locking their stuff up will reduce crime.

actually no locking people up for more than a week will reduce crime when people know they will get punished with an extended prison vacation they will think twice about stealing

That isn't true either. I agree we need to be tough on crime but these thieves are feeding their drug habit. You don't think that once they are released they won't go back to stealing to feed their addiction? Unless they are cured from their addiction while incarcerated.

You can lock your junk up, but that isn't much of a deterrent to a determined thief. They know how to get at your goodies.
nothing wrong with being open minded as long as your brains don't fall out.

Lets look at bears. What do they tell us every fall about bears?

But there is always that neighbour or two that don't follow this and the bears show up.

Even though I park inside my attached garage, I lock and set the alarm and take my keys inside every night. Paranoid?........Not likely. Cautious?......for sure.
Peace of mind, costs me nothing, but I sleep very well every night......That is priceless.

I leave my vehicle unlocked. I dont leave anything in it. Paid for several windows over the years. Decided long ago was cheaper to let the crooks in.

Consumerism has it such that people have so much stuff, their garage has no room for the vehicles they were intended.

One genius on the Westside had his garage door opener in his unlocked car. Thief got into his car and then into his garage. DUH.

Garage doors are not very secure either.

My method with my convertible, better than a slashed roof...again...and again...

Unless it;s raining, the roof stays tucked away also.
(had the roof slashed once even though the doors were unlocked)

perhaps if one was to have their hand chopped off for stealing things would be different
