Note to student: When buying beer at 2AM and wrangling with the clerk over your fake ID for a half-hour, don't leave your friggin Jeep running in the parking lot with the top down.

/didn't RTFA

Dumbass? No, New Orleans.
2004-01-27 10:00:13 PM  
Must have had the optional third-row seats...

or the Porsche headlights

A 1998 Jeep Cherokee? Those thieves were doing her a favor!
2004-01-27 11:32:40 PM  
Wait a minute, this might be funny...
2004-01-27 11:32:43 PM  
Yea, what a dumbass, got it stolen and then found it again, and when strange men walk in their direction they drive around the corner.

I suppose they arent supposed to go anywhere?

Or maybe these two girls should confront these two strange men who probably stole her car that second time?

Horrible use of the dumbass tag.

I'm in tulane law school and i make a habit of parking my car anywhere off the street, as it's already been jacked once.
2004-01-27 11:34:12 PM  
Unless I read the article wrong, it looks like it was only stolen once.

Basically it was stolen and they happened across it while the thieves were driving it around.
2004-01-27 11:35:25 PM  
Green Wave, baby!
2004-01-27 11:38:30 PM  
Nabb1: "Dumbass? No, New Orleans."

Exactly. Not sure why someone thought "dumbass" was the way to go here, but Fark's had an above-average number of out-of-whack tags recently, it seems...

There's no school so good that could get me to live anywhere in Louisiana.
2004-01-27 11:39:30 PM  
Go Wave!

Only in New Orleans, that's all I've got to say. That's half the reason I never had a car when I was in school...also I couldn't afford it...
2004-01-27 11:41:06 PM  
My brother goes to Tulane. I wonder if he did it... I'll ask him later.
2004-01-27 11:41:32 PM  
waited for three hours for the cops to show up???
2004-01-27 11:42:25 PM  
This story reminded me of that old SNL skit with the sh*tty rusted out Oldsmobuick that was really a luxury car on the inside, so it wouldn't get stolen. I can't remember the name though. Anyone?
2004-01-27 11:43:38 PM  
One girl at my school (Loyola Marymount, Los Angeles) got her car stolen because she left her keys on her roof. Oh, the guy who stole the car was one of the Public Safety (campus cop) officers. Farking classic retards.
2004-01-27 11:44:15 PM  
Sounds like she needs a 'long white beard'

/On some sorta old SNL kick today...
2004-01-27 11:45:40 PM  
Try using The Club
2004-01-27 11:49:50 PM  
I've come to the conclusion that stories get much more play in the media if the keyword SUV is involved.

"Man Accidently Backs Over Wife, Killing Her" - Page A-23

"Husband Kills Wife With SUV" - Page 1-A, above the fold
2004-01-27 11:49:59 PM  
and Duke sucks?
2004-01-27 11:50:15 PM  
Forget the club. She needs a big black guy named Ben.
2004-01-27 11:50:39 PM  
Anti-theft system?

How about situational awareness.
2004-01-27 11:50:52 PM  
idiotfactory: waited for three hours for the cops to show up???

Again, welcome to New Orleans. After all, it was "just" a stolen car.
2004-01-27 11:50:59 PM  
police: "sorry for the inconvenience."

student: "oh, no trouble. when you shot my mother, that was an inconvenience. this? this is hardly an inconvenience."
2004-01-27 11:51:32 PM  
Thanks, Louisiana, for bringing us that idiot and that Britney Spears thingy...

Louisiana is teh sux!!1!!1
2004-01-27 11:52:57 PM  
My next door neighbor has a real nice Mercedes. He advises that the best anti-theft device he has found is to put the word "diesel" somewhere on the outside of the car. Apparenty it works so well that it even prevents legal transfer to a new owner.
2004-01-27 11:53:02 PM  
Louisiana isn't that bad. It has corrupt cops and an awful problem with crime, but it has the best food and the best parties in the continental US. Just don't bring your SUV.
2004-01-27 11:53:23 PM  
Tulane students are dumb.

*knows several farktards who dropped out of Tulane*
2004-01-27 11:53:38 PM  
milowitz I think the Oldsmobuick was called the Chameleon.
2004-01-27 11:54:38 PM  
Solzhenisin: Maybe that's why they dropped out? Too stupid to make it? Hmmm.
2004-01-27 11:54:53 PM  
D@mn Loyola b@st@rds!
2004-01-27 11:56:56 PM  
maybe they shouldnt leave a briefcase with $100,000 in the back.
/wait wrong people
2004-01-27 11:56:56 PM  
I've got to rent a car for a week-long trip to N.O. in a month (right after Mardi Gras), and the priority on model selection (besides having a seat that won't kill my back on the drive) will be whether or not it's a got a big enough trunk for all of my gear. Because you leave NOTHING inside the passenger compartment in New Orleans.
2004-01-27 11:57:18 PM  
I was singing at a college campus in Portland - Reed College. Kinda off topic - but they had security vehicles. And this college was retarded for these two reasons... the campus purchased Honda Elements for the "guards" to drive around in - and instead of being called "security" they were called "community safety officers"

2004-01-27 11:58:17 PM  
Who the hell would steal it the second time if it was already beat up? My guess is the same people took it
2004-01-27 11:59:15 PM  
Lucky it was found at all! Maybe the crack hidden in the frame rail was why it was so desireable even after being wrecked.

For all the nit picking arses, the "crack" I mentioned was not a structural defect.
2004-01-27 11:59:34 PM  
Where's Officer Mancuso when you need him??
2004-01-28 12:01:12 AM  
I think I am tempting fate with my ride. I drive a '73 VW Bus and leave the key in it all the time. I'd like to see someone figure out the trick to starting her. :P
2004-01-28 12:04:16 AM  
I'm in tulane law school and i make a habit of parking my car anywhere off the street, as it's already been jacked once.

How is law school related to this tale of woe? Would it be any different if you were Tulane undergrad? Smells like a 1L who feels the need to tell everybody that he (or she, or since it's LA, maybe a "she-he") is in law school.

RoguePixie: Lee Miller?

I drive a 1997 BMW in our harsh Canadian winter. Easy to start, but I'd like to see someone figure out the trick to driving an overpowered rear-wheel drive car through the ice and snow.

If it ever gets stolen I'll just tell the cops to look in all the ditches a block from the parking lot.
2004-01-28 12:07:09 AM  

no kidding, huh?
2004-01-28 12:08:12 AM  
Dr. Benway Que?
2004-01-28 12:10:55 AM  
RP: The photo. Looks like Lee Miller.
2004-01-28 12:11:25 AM  
Ahhh-no, it's Tallulah Bankhead
2004-01-28 12:13:14 AM  
So what's the deal with New Orleans/ Are the cops crooked or is there a lot of crime there?

~Never been to Nalins and probably never will~
2004-01-28 12:13:26 AM  
Yeah, i just drive am 81 datsun with little to no brakes. You gotta pump em up twice before you get any pressure, but then they work pretty good. If anyone ever thought about stealing her, they would only get as far as the first curve...
2004-01-28 12:17:58 AM  
Sure enough. Never her saw that young. Note resemblance:
