The assignment was for officers on the midnight shift to inspect parked vehicles and then knock on the door of the owners home during the 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. time period for an unexpected wakeup call if they discover a situation that would lend itself to theft or vandalism.What does that even mean? Like a car left unlocked? How often is that going to happen in this day and age? What other examples? A trike out on the lawn?
My car is never locked, unless parked somewhere unsavory. Often the keys are left in the ignition. More often than not, my house is unlocked.
I still live in a “Real American” area, not some overpriced, gentrified “slum” where you live right on top of your neighbor and the gangbangers hang out down the street.
