What’s a fair price for this guy to get your keys out of your car?

I’m thinking $50.

How Do Thieves Break Your Car Windows Quietly on the Streets of San Francisco? With Tiny Ninja Rocks!

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

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.)

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.

PLEASE
DO NOT BREAK

I HAVE NOTHING

NO MONEY, NO

Does this approach work?

Well, it can’t hoit.
