I live in a decent area , but people consider what car they have on the basis they don’t want it stolen.
Unfortunately there are people out there who don’t want to earn they just take.
Good Carolyn’s children weren’t present.

Definitely a targeted attack. And while the last thing I’m doing is victim shaming, if you make yourself a target, unfortunately you’re going to attract the attention of criminals.

It does happen quite a lot. My ex wife!s step dad drove coaches on overseas trips. He got rolled by a gang in Paris while the people were at the Eiffel Tower. They took his wedding ring. He told me that he was chuffed in a way as he’d been trying to get it off his finger for over ten years but it was stuck.
It is a pretty sad state of affairs if you think this way.
