    Not restricted to blacks and Latinos huh? I wonder how many crimes are committed are masked as an inner city problem. This is a world wide situation and time is running out. Seek deliverance while the opportunity exist.

    Pretty stupid to leave a car running.

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged but may contain typos.

    Nice white socks. Could be Cliff Clavin. Hard times for fictional USPS workers these days.

  • When it is cold out it is very tempting to leave the car running to warm it up or keep it warm. I sent this article around to my family as a reminder. Running cars are very easy targets. Hope it serves as reminders to others.
