This guy was fast.

What’s a fair price for this guy to get your keys out of your car?
I’m thinking $50.
Anyway, this is one way for thieves to get into your car…
This is redolent of the home-made “NO RADIO” signs you used to see in cars in SoMA back in the 1990′s…

Note the listing of dates of prior break-ins…
Has it been ten years since Ninja Rocks have been enshrined in our California Criminal Code? Yes!
Celebrate by breaking into cars this year, as people are already doing on McAllister Street right near City Hall.
But don’t use a hammer to get car booty. Hammers are heavy.
Use ninja rocks to break windows instead. (They’re super light so they’re easy to carry around.)

“466. Every person having upon him or her in his or her possession a
picklock, crow, keybit, crowbar, screwdriver, vise grip pliers,
water-pump pliers, slidehammer, slim jim, tension bar, lock pick gun,
tubular lock pick, bump key, floor-safe door puller, master key,
ceramic or porcelain spark plug chips or pieces, or other instrument
or tool with intent feloniously to break or enter into…”

Were tears shed by some of the hundreds who didn’t win the bicycle? Oh yes. Oh well.
In the spirit of community policing, the command staff and officers of Mission Police Station will sponsor its annual Easter Egg Hunt for children ten years old and under on Saturday, April 4, at Mission Playground,19th Street between Valencia and Guerrero, beginning at 10:00 A.M. There will be entertainment, a raffle for a bike, and a special appearance from the Easter Bunny.
Better luck next year…
Of course you already carry around a small shard of NGK (日本特殊陶業株式会社 aka Nippon Tokusyu Tōgyō Kabushiki-gaisha) high-temperature spark plug porcelain ceramic insulator to easily break windows, but how do you determine which parked car has worthwhile booty? Simple, just crane your neck and look into each car as you walk down the sidewalk.
You’ll never know what you’ll find.
As seen on Golden Gate Avenue, checking every last car on this block and the next one too:
NB: Don’t try this in the Richmond District, else you might make the Noteworthy Arrests section of the Richmond District Police Community Relations Forum newsletter and then end up in the hoosegow.
The owner of this car that was spotted in the South of Market Area of San Francisco has multiple signs visible from all angles advertising the futility of breaking in.
Now back in the day, you could go out and buy a simple yellow “NO RADIO” sign to hang in your car. Those signs went out of fashion for whatever reason, so now there’s no excuse to not create your own haiku or senryu.

DO NOT BREAK
I HAVE NOTHING
NO MONEY, NO
Does this approach work?
Well, it can’t hoit.
CRASH, ANOTHER WINDOW GONE
SOON, WINTER ARRIVES
Try it yourself. What would you write?
