    It\'s rant time...

    So, I wake up this morning and walk out the door to go to the firehouse. I see my work truck sitting there with the doors to the cab and my toolboxes wide open. My stomach churns as I realize what I am looking at. Thousands of dollars worth of tools and equipment, all gone while I slept. The worst thing lost though? My briefcase. I had three years of business contacts, irreplaceable stuff, in that bag. I had the discs with all of my wheelin pics on them in there. My calendar for the the next month or two. Pictures of my nephews and family. Let me just say this:

    THIEVES ARE THE LOWEST FORM OF LIFE ON THIS PLANET. WHAT THEY STOLE WAS NOT JUST A BUNCH OF TOOLS, IT WAS MY LIVELYHOOD, MY WAY OF MAKING A LIVING! MY NEIGHBORHOOD HAS BEEN A TARGET FOR HISPANIC GANGS OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS OR SO, GRAFFITI AND BREAKINS ALL OVER. THE COPPERS KEEP CATCHING THEM, BUT THEIR FRIENDS KNOW THAT THE PICKINS ARE GOOD OVER HERE, SO THEY KEEP COMING BACK. SO MUCH FOR FELIZ NAVIDAD, YOU DIRTY BASTARDS. X-MAS IS GONNA BE SHITTY THIS YEAR. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Re: It\'s rant time...

    John that sucks. I can't imagine how you feel. I have had my company work vans broken into a couple of times over the past several years working in and around DC, but always had company insurance cover replacing tools. I never had anything of my own stolen until I moved here. Some a-hole stole the in dash cd player out of my Blazer over the Thanksgiving weekend /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.

    Re: It\'s rant time...

    Same thing almost happened to me when I was living in Aurora. I had just bought a nice Blazer and didnt even have it for a day before someone tried to steal it from me. Cost me about $800 in the drivers door to fix. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Best of luck and I hope they get caught!!

    I hate to be this way but I missed the part where you explain why you left your stuff outside when you had advance knowledge of the local crime problem.

    i had my jimmy broken into last summer. all they got was a 5 year old pioneer, some cds, and my jack. all i wanted in return was 5 minutes alone with the sons-a-beaatches.
    hope you get your stuff back, and don't let those a-holes ruin your christmas. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: It\'s rant time...

    i hear ya brother, my rigs been broken into 3 times... now i just dont keep anything inside it, no tools, no hilift, no stereo, no nuttin.

    with your particular case, Id get the police involved... sometimes when theives steal something like a briefcase, they end up taking $ from it and throwing the rest of the case + contents in a ditch or something... atleast if someone turns it in to the fuzz you'll have a chance at getting it back. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Re: It\'s rant time...

    I have a garage that measures 6 feet wide and 10 deep. No choice but to leave it outside. It was locked too. What I need to do is hire a sniper to back up my AR, and not sleep thru this crap. If I'd been sleeping upstairs, like usual, instead of downstairs (because the wife is sick) I would have woke up and committed crimes against humanity. Destroy, destroy them all... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    If not already initiated

    An option...

    I really am sorry about this. The state of the world is pretty sad these days. A firefighter too...

    Anyway, try and get a hand

    Hope it works out
