I'm sorry these people lost so much in cash and valuables, but there is no reason to leave all that in the car. Pick up your purse, wallet, valuables,etc. This is a crime of opportunity.

Change is coming???? Well people have been saying this for decades. Frist the southwest side of Chicago, then Oak Lawn, Chicago ridge, worth, Burbank. Now Tinley Park, Oak Forest, Midlotain. Next Moknea, Frankfort, New Lenox, homer Glenn? With attitudes that all the south and southwest towns are going to look like the Southside of Chicago is just plan dumb. Like not locking your car or your house or leaving stuff in plan view so anyone can take it. It's not 1955.
