These Things Happen [Oct. 24th, 2006|08:55 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz's car got broken into  yesterday morning in broad daylight in the middle of town. The thieves smashed  a side window and stole her purse- which had fallen out of her bag and must have been lying on the floor. They were only kids. They took the cash- not very much of it- and left the cards scattered over the pavement, where they were rescued by a friendly neighbourhood dentist. Thank you Dr Hill!

It  was almost certainly the same kids who slouched by when Ailz  returned to the car. For one thing they fitted a witness's descrition of the perps and for another they were sort of smirking among themselves. They asked her if she'd been robbed and one of them turned to his mate in a parody of an elderly wiseacre and commented ,"they're animals these days". Very ironic. Very postmodern.

But we got all the cards back and Ailz's driving license and the biggest inconvenience is having to replace the broken glass.

How blatant and brazen! Do they feel so safe that they can laugh about what they have done? Must we take photographs of people in the act before we can do anything?

I assume your insurance will cover the broken glass, but what a shame--more for the children, who feel untouchable and don't understand decent behavior and how to live among people gently.

There may or may not have been security cameras in the area, but the kids would almost certainly have been wearing hoodies.

Yes, we were covered by our insurance. I comfort myself with the thought that most kids go through an anti-social, even criminal, phase and most of them grow out of it.
