      Someone didn’t learn how to spell in school.

    My fellow LaPlatans. Do not panic, our town and your vehicles are completely safe. Just be sure to invest in good car alarms, home security systems, deadbolt locks, self defense training and lots of property and life insurance! And maybe a panic room too!

      Or simply move out of LaPlata aka Little Waldorf like I did and couldn’t be happier. The final straw was my car was broken into 3 times in less than 8 months. A BIG FU to all of the politicians that sold out LaPlata but refuse to live in the cesspool they created.

        Laplata is only concerned about signs and harassing small business and the Laplata Business group. Real crime? They don’t care about it. It’s all about their almighty signcode. New administration in May! Yessssss!

    Let the blaming of the victim begin in 3,2,1….

      You’re right, this type of article is like catnip for all of the busy-bodies who just can’t wait to say “WELL, TECHINCALLY it’s all the victim’s fault because…”

    What a dumb ass!

    Oh look someone left a car there with the keys in it. They must not want it any more. It is mine now!

    Please note for those unable to read between the lines the above statement is called SARCASM. The accused has no right to take the vehicle whether it is running or not.

  6. George on January 10, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    There is law on the books that doesn’t allow you leave your car running unattended. Don’t come crying if your car is stolen because you don’t want to follow the rules.

        You spoiled it, now he knows why he never gets the invite!

      And there it is! The blaming of the victim for a criminal stealing something. Yes, there is a law on the books and it’s in the form of a traffic ticket. So let’s let the thief go and write the owner a ticket, that’ll show em!

    • Anonymous on January 11, 2017 at 1:03 pm

      Are you sure that law doesn’t just cover public areas? I’m pretty sure if it’s running on your private property that would be completely different.

      • Anon on January 12, 2017 at 12:03 pm

        As stupid as it is, the law covers everywhere, as it was explained to me, though I have not actually researched it. My understanding is you can be written a citation for leaving your car running in your own driveway, if the keys are in the ignition. Its asinine, but remote start is allowed because the keys aren’t in the vehicle and the doors are locked

    • Becky on January 11, 2017 at 1:13 pm

      There should be a law against someone coming onto my property and steal something that belongs to me.

      • cheywolf on January 12, 2017 at 9:14 am

        Thank you for saying that Becky!!! Apparently it’s ok to walk on someone’s property and steal their car, which doesn’t belong to them. lol

        • PoPo Joe on January 13, 2017 at 7:52 am

          Stop enabling Beckys idiotic posts. Duh!

  7. AliceW on January 10, 2017 at 6:16 pm

    If the key was left in it, then the owner needs a $90.00 ticket plus the cost of recovering it.

    • Anonymous on January 11, 2017 at 10:51 am

      Yes I agree. I mean who thinks they should be allowed to start their car on a sub zero day so their children or infants wont have to sit in a cold car.

      • Frank the Tank on January 13, 2017 at 9:11 am

        “Sub- Zero”?

        • Anonymous on January 13, 2017 at 1:08 pm

          Sorry, sub freezing. Water does freeze at 32 degrees fahrenheit and zero degrees celsius.

    • Bobsyouruncle on January 11, 2017 at 2:15 pm

      Plus, there should be no legal recourse for the car owner if the perpetrator damaged the car.

    • Len on January 12, 2017 at 6:30 am

      Yeah, I’d much rather the owner of the car pull out onto the road with limited visibility because their windshield and windows fogged up / frosted over than have them let their car warm up for 8 minutes. Makes sense. If you’re mentally challenged.

    • Francois on January 13, 2017 at 6:37 am

      You should be issued a citation and permenetatoy banned from the comments section on SMNEWSNET with your tirade of asinine comments.

        Permenetatoy sounds like it might be a pretty sweet vacation spot.

  8. brian on January 10, 2017 at 6:17 pm

    Pos neckbearded thief. 18 and on a path to prison.

  9. Jammer on January 10, 2017 at 6:47 pm

    Was the car owner charged? My understanding is that it is illegal to leave your car running like that. BTW, I think that is a stupid law, especially when the running vehicle is on your property.

  10. Jack Wagon on January 11, 2017 at 7:14 am

    With a last name like that, you’d think he’d be cooler.

    His parents must be so proud, 18 and already has his first big boy felony.

    No PARENT syndrome here at work, kiddy facial hair rocker is a way to start a life as a Wanna Be. Unless you want to get a couple face tattoo’s, and a couple neck ones while you’re at it, STOP THE STUPID “Try Hard Douche Bag Stuff NOW.” GROW the F888 UP NOW or before you know it you’ll be a 40yr old F888 UP with a three page rap sheet and be a terrible father to 3 kids, whom have no dad.

    Lmfao what a clown! How about you get a job dumba** and just buy your own car? Or is physical labor aka “real mans job” too much for you to handle? Quit being a lazy bum and do something with your life! Waste of skin!

  14. Jeffro59 on January 11, 2017 at 12:02 pm

    Nice…now everybody knows just how freakin’ retarded your dumbass is…

  15. Coop on January 11, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    A guy with the name “deeznutz” is calling someone a dumbass. They day you are what you eat.

  16. Big Dookie on January 11, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    How is it this young brother’s fault that some moron left the car for him to steal?

    • Anon on January 12, 2017 at 12:08 pm

      Brilliant addition to the conversation. Using this logic, I should be allowed to look through your windows at your naked wife and/or children. After all, if they don’t want anyone to see them naked they should just keep their clothes on, amiright? LMFAO

  17. Charlene on January 11, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    Prayers! For all the victims of car theft and violent crimes in Laplata.

    • Balloon Girl on January 12, 2017 at 9:45 pm

      How about praying for people trying to run a business in Laplata? We are struggling under the current regime. Pray for our freedom!

      • Anonymous on January 13, 2017 at 1:10 pm

        Yes. Keeping voting democrat as they will regulate and tax you right out of business.

    • Pope Francis on January 13, 2017 at 6:33 am

      Glory be! Eventually our lord and savior will come down to save us from these heathen devices that transport us to and from work! Thanks you for your prayers sister Charlene!!

  18. Anon on January 11, 2017 at 8:25 pm

    another young one on the wrong path. Wake up.

    • Gloria Alfred on January 13, 2017 at 7:54 am

      So, he wasn’t awake when he stole the car? Sounds like a good defense to me!

      • Anonymous on January 17, 2017 at 9:14 am

        Maybe you should’ve focused on the first sentence instead of the second one.

        I mean, the second one’s a good sentence in it’s own right, but it doesn’t leave much to respond to…. and those that force a witty response typically end up looking foolish in the end.

        Words to live by, Mrs. Alfred.
