yea i hope u find who in the f*** did it...that's kinda odd that he tried 2 break in2 his "friends" truck tho....u shoulda got a name b4 goin 2 work....the cops dont do SHIT. i had sum1 break in2 my car n steal stereo (bout 5g+ worth). i was in my house n i had just woke up. i looked out the window n my car was fine. then i took a shower n started fixin breakfast n looked out again n my back drivers door was open. my b/f called the cops n reported it n they came out n took the info etc. well, i have a dirt driveway, they didn't get the shoe prints that were there n they didn't get ne prints 4rm the car. instead, they came back 4 hrs later n got them. i told the cops that i had sum1 threaten 2 steal it at school n they didnt do shit. so i waited thinking they would. bout 2 days l8r when nothin was done my b/f n 1 of our friends went 2 this kids house. his friends had already told me that they thought he had it, well he "didnt live there" but we talked 2 his stepdad n he said that he prolly did. when we found out where this kid lived the shoeprints matched etc. my bf said that he would calls the cops n tell them n have em come out n question him. bout 10 min. l8r he calls my b/f n said that 4 of the 12's had gotten stolen n that he scratched the amp. he xpected my b/f n i 2 just deal w/ it but my bf told him he hadda pay 4 it. the kid told 1 of his friends that he needed the $ 2 etc. but finally we got it back. just a lil fyi, the cops havent done shit, dont do shit, n don't plan to. so its a lot better if u just take action urself n good job so far...but u really needa find the prick.

I had similar problems a few years ago. My 88 Honda Accord was stolen. It was never recovered. It didn't have much added, but I was very irritated when the insurance company gave me a '90 instead [while thinking they did me a huge favor]! (I liked the body style) >

Anyways, then more recently I had a couple of attempts. I decided that that was enough, so I set up a little system, and although its a real pain in the ass, we keep "clubs" in our cars now.

The cop move did work the second time. I just didnt do it right the first time.
As far as him breaking into his "freinds" car, I never said they were freinds. I only said they partied together. They say there is honor among theives, this does not apply if the theives are drug addicts.

The cops are understaffed. They are either occupied by what is happening now, or by when a life is at stake. I can't exactly blame them for that, they focus there rescources on the big issues at hand and as a tax payer I think I would prefer it that way. What upsets me is the laws that stifle our ability to pick up the slack where the police fail us on the "less important crimes". I said it before, if the little bastards had any inclination that they could possibly be maimed or even mortally wounded, by the owner of the property that they are attempting to steal, maybe a good percentage of them would think twice before taking something that does not belong to them and the other small percentage would learn real quick! When I was younger and had less responsibility I would go after this guy "balls out"; but as time goes by I find that although I never lose my fire I only gain more to lose by not playing by societies rules. I have a lot to consider when I retaliate. I have to make sure I do it right. Like when I shoot this piece of s?#t, or the next one that tries to rip me off, I need to have two guns. One that I blast him with and one that I place in his cold dead hand's so I can claim he stole it out of my car and threatened me with it. In the state I live in I can not use a firearm to protect my personel property; but I can use deadly force if I feel my life is threatened. These are the fu@#ed up laws I am refering to about pushing to get changed. We should be able to defend our personell property with the same passion that we use to defend our familys and ourselves. It is not the police that are failing us, it is we that fail us when we do not demand our lawmakers change the laws that prevent us from defending ourselves from the lazy trash that continue to burn us on a daily basis.

The club is good; but a while ago I saw an "infomercial" about a product similar to the club that locks the brake pedal somehow. I think this would be more effective; but I don't know where to purchase it.

Well, with all the security in the world you can still get screwed:

I recently read a stry where a theif tried to steal some mercede out of this guys driveway, but soon found that it required the owners fingerprint to start. So the theif went to the owner and hacked off his finger with a machete then took the car...Hardcore.

Proximity: 19th Ave & Aster Dr.

I am posting this not to find my car (because I TOOK IT BACK); but to give hope to the victims out there and maybe catch the piece of crap that got away from me on foot.

At 4:30 AM I heard my "73" Nova being started by someone other than me. I immediately threw on some clothes and pursued the scum bag that thought my car should be his, in my "96" Jeep Cherokee 4X4. He had pulled out on 19th Ave south bound when I caught up to him. I don't think he realized I was there till I decided to try to "spin him out". I tapped the rear bumper of my Nova with my Jeep trying to pull a "COPS" move; but I was too far center to do anything except let him know he picked the wrong car to take. So I then accelerated and pulled left to get along side of him. When I was where I wanted to be I cranked my wheel to the right and clipped the left rear quarter panel of my Nova. Due to the unseasonable rain that was falling my Nova spun faster than I expected and smashed the drivers side door into the drivers side front end of my Jeep. This on the plus side shattered the Nova door glass in the scum bag's face. I immediately braked and watched him spin 2 more times. When my Nova was done spinning I circled it, like Indians on a wagon train, waiting for him to exit my "BABY". He looked like a ground hog popping his head out of each of the front windows trying to decide which way to escape from me. Finally I stopped on the passenger side and yelled to him to "GET THE F?#K OUT OF MY CAR". He actually replied to me saying he was trying. He had two choices...

A - climb through the drivers side window over broken glass (the door was too damaged to open). or
B. - come towards me where I was for sure going to kill him one way or another.

He chose the broken glass (good choice for both of us). He fled on foot and ditched under a security gate at an apartment complex to the West. I could not make it under the gate; so I went back home. My girlfriend who was still on the phone with 911, gave me the phone. After all was said and done the Phoenix Police Dept. not only told me great job; they told me I should have ran him over so they could "take him in". They said they would have reported it as me losing control of my Jeep in the rain. IF ONLY I KNEW AHEAD OF TIME. Unfortunately the "Lucky Bastard" got away. I want this "SOB" caught and prosecuted. If you know anything about this incident please contact me at eenglishiii@aol.com . I want everybody out there to know that although you must assess your risks, you must stand up for what is yours and for what is right. If more of us let the scum that run around taking what is not there's know that we will not stand for it maybe they will heed us instead of take advantage of our easy going laws.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope it has inspired some and empowered others. On the flip side assess your risks and make sure it is the right time to make your point without risking yours or someone elses life. Please feel free to contact me "someone who refuses to be a victim of the unscrupulous and the weak laws we vote for" @ eenglishiii@aol.com.

Sincerely,
jeepmaniii

I must say you get around, because I have seen this same post on several boards over the years, admittedly usually authored by a friend of a friend. The last one occured in New Zealand last week actually.
