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.
Yeah I wouldn’t have wanted to go home either! Dad was an amazing man but he knew how to be sure I didn’t cross the line.

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.
Coming to? I am afraid that ship sailed some time ago.

Wouldn't it be great to be able to rig the drivers steering wheel inflator module to blow up in the thieves face 10 sec after they steal the car or truck. BOOM!

Is a Kia and a Hyundia the same car mostly?

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Two 14-year-old boys are dead and a third 14-year-old boy is injured after a crash involving a stolen vehicle in Sunday night in the Milo-Grogan neighborhood.
Columbus police said the crash happened about 8:20 p.m. near St. Clair and East Fifth avenues.
Police said a group of teenagers was driving a stolen Hyundai Sonata when it crashed into a building and flipped over.

Pop window, break column and turn a switch.
It takes mere seconds to steal these cars.
It is that easy according to one of my mechanic friends. A little rectangular USB plug is what they use to turn the switch.

From my understanding, yes. My mechanic buddy and I were out fishing last week, and he said he's had 5 theft recovery Kias/Hyundais in the last two weeks (he works in south Minneapolis). He said to never buy one on account of what he's seen, not that I ever would have bought a Kia/Hyundai anyway.

So all the work of chipped smart keys that drastically reduced theft over the last 30 years, HKMC decided to just toss out the window? At least back then you needed to break the key area and lock out of the metal column and there wasn't anyone on the internet showing you exactly how to do it...
