“Dear PoP,

I normally park my car on Florida between 11th and 13th St, NW (right at the edge of the high school), but after reading about break ins there last week, I’ve been parking it overnight in the actual HS lot (generally if you move it by 7:30 or so, no one gives you any trouble). I thought this would be safer, but it seems it just delayed the inevitable. Although there was absolutely nothing visible or worth stealing in the car, my back window was broken into sometime between 11pm and 7am. They went through my car and trunk and didn’t take a thing. The worse part was that a cop car was parked across the street most of the night…but no cop to be found.

It seems no matter how empty your car is or where it is parked around there, it won’t be safe. What a great early Christmas present!”

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Sorry to hear about this.
