If anyone on the board owns a Kia or Hyundai... Beware of the "Kia Boys"!

Car thefts have gotten totally out of hand in the upper Midwest because these punks have figured out how easy it is to steal these cars.

Pop window, break column and turn a switch.
It takes mere seconds to steal these cars.


An elderly couple's car was hit by one of these stolen cars and the woman was killed couple of days ago.

They are almost always juveniles and they are being released to the "custody" of their parents, in my county.
They are back out on the street the next day, stealing more cars... Just for kicks. :mad:

That's not really any different than stealing cars has always been...That said, how much of this problem is a result of the recent policing and prosecuting policies in those areas? Gonna bet that's the real problem. We've gotten too soft on crime, especially for juveniles and certain minorities. Doesn't matter how heinous the crime, if you're a juvenile or a certain minority, you're going to be let go because these places don't want to risk any riot-provoking incidents. A-hole just shot up some single mothers apartment, and RIGHTLY got shot by cops, and there are riots about it. Seriously, this crap is out of control.

Agreed. Minnesota has taken a soft on crime attitude. That attitude ensures an increase in crime. Until the people demand more from their leaders, this is what you can expect.

If I were caught by the police at a young age, I wouldn't want them releasing me to my parents for a while, my dad would've made sure you didn't want that again.
I think everything is a bit soft now.

That would land you in jail though. Stealing a car? That's just a victimless crime. Punishing a kid? ABUSE! Cannot be tolerated.

These kids today don't have dads, most don't even have a mom who gives a crap about them, just the government checks that come in each month. And the government just keeps on paying these fourth generation, unmarried, unemployed, uneducated irresponsible welfare cases to have more kids. There's no solution until this crap stops and even then it would take some years. What a mess this country is coming to.

Someone got a KIA stolen? I got a bit lost in the thread?
Ya steal a KIA drive a mile walk the rest, after the engine blows up. Hell I remember when stealing GM cars were the hot ticket in the 80's and 90's. Nothing new, just take out the fuel pump relay problem solved.
