My window was smashed last Monday on the 21st at the Eliza furnace trail. The thief smashed my window and stole my ipod from the glove compartment and ripped out the wires. They also stole my garmin GPS which was hidden on the floor of my car. I am out around 600 bucks. I had a $250 deductible for my geico car window insurance and a $250 deductible for my Allstate Homeowners insurance.

It really stinks, I bike to work every day and it is annoying that I have to look for somewhere else to park. Where are the cops? Where are signs warning bikers not to park there? I’m sorry – I’m just angry and I feel violated. It stinks coming back to your car after biking and find shattered glass and snow all over your car!

This is pretty sad. I’m wonder if we can get a list of everyone who’s had their window smashed and bring it to a news station or something to get some public pressure on the police department about this. I understand that it’s not a particularly high profile case to solve, but if you total up the value of all the losses, it becomes a much bigger deal.

Actually, hell, I’ll start it and see if we get any momentum. Please forward this to anyone else you know that might have been a victim as well.

Give me all the details you have (time, date, location of the event), name, a way to contact you, and a police report number with which zone the report was filed at.

Oh. Also, please indicate if you would like or not like to be contacted by the media in the event we do get something rolling.
