James Roberts: It's owners' responsibility to lock vehicles

Next earlier comment, this issue: -Jon Halsey chimes in support of Mr. Marshburn, re: crime issue

By James Roberts
Personal commentary

Law enforcement cannot protect individualís vehicles who leave them unlocked or even locked with valuables inside. It is the vehicle ownerís responsibility to take care of their own property. A vehicle is not a secure place to leave valuables in the first place. It takes very little effort to break a window glass to gain access and even less effort when left unlocked. We donít live in a time anymore where people can leave vehicles, homes & places of businessís unlocked like we were all used to growing up. Thanks, - James Roberts.
