Probably just a vagrant that used it for a bathroom and moved on.

This is why I never bought a new car after my '97 Honda POS was stolen in early 2017 in Berkeley.

It's just easier to jump in an Uber or Lyft, and if I need a car for something specific, I rent hourly with GetAround or Zipcar.

Did you know that the ball gag was originally used by parents who couldn't control the noises they made while they mashed their genitalia together? It wasn't until the 16th century when King Henry VIII developed a fetish for it that it became a kink people had.

Hopefully a pair of pliers and a blowtorch aren't far behind. We are talking about thieves here.

SRSLY. I live in a swanky neighborhood, my '06 Prius is an embarrassment to the community. I leave it open, leave the keys RIGHT THERE, but the thieves just turn up their noses at it.

How is that even possible.

My work is only 2.7 miles from my house. Ubering every day just to and from work is about $15 assuming it isn't raining or there isn't surge pricing in effect. Even if I never went anywhere else ever and had everything delivered, that's $75 a week, $300 a month, or $3,600 a year. Calculating for actually going places, let's say I rent a zip car every weekend at $75 a day, or $150 a weekend, $600 a month, or $7,200 a year. Combined, that puts me at almost $11,000 a year. This is on the low end considering that is not much traveling. I tend to keep my vehicles for about 10 years, sometimes longer. 10 years without inflation puts me at $110,000.

Very very very few people live in a little bubble with a meager routine to make fiduciary or logical sense to ditch a personal vehicle.

Yep, I carpool to work and take public transportation home. I can walk to the grocery store, and then Uber home for less than $7. And when I use GetAround it's usually for one hour, sometimes two.

If I still lived in Wisconsin this wouldn't be possible, but I also wouldn't have to worry as much about my personal car getting stolen.

1989 for me. Of course it was my own fault, I was foolish enough to park it on a busy street near Fisherman's Wharf in broad daylight.

I've parked in SF for 30 years. My shiny SUV, packed at all times with surf and camp gear including wetsuit, board, and fully loaded internal frame 60 pack with about $800 in gear, tent, sleeping bag, etc etc etc fully visible, parked overnight in SoMa and the financial district. Never a problem.

My understanding is that old cars are often more attractive to thieves, both because they're easier to steal and because if it's a popular older car, there's a large market for parts.

"Five million people are gonna see you steal that," Guerrero said on camera. "So you can choose to give it back or not." After being further pressed, the man told Guerrero he was going to call his mother before putting the speaker down on the BART platform and walking away.

That's adorable, he panicked and immediately thought to call his mother. And then he didn't, because no one calls mother.

Last time I was in San Francisco, a few years ago, my car got broken into. Marina district, and the car at the time was about 16 years old. The only thing to possibly entice a thief was a cheap cowboy hat on the back seat -- not a high-value target.

An arrest was made, and the SFPD officer I spoke to, after I got back to L.A. (less a hefty chunk of cash to replace the window and a tire that had been destroyed somehow), said they could probably only charge the arrestee with trespassing, since they only found him in the car and there were no visual witnesses to the break-in. The cowboy hat was nowhere to be found, which I took to mean that after my car had already been broken into, someone else had gone into the car. Or else the person had an accomplice who took the hat and the police were quick to respond (but not quick enough to actually see the break-in).

Anyway, I said I wanted to press charges but never got a call back to testify so I guess the culprit pleaded out.

I'm planning a visit up there soon to bid adieu to a number of dive bars that I haunted back in the '90s when I lived there and are due to close soon, but I think I will fly there this time. I'm not interested in another break-in.

Which might be my last visit to SF. It holds a dear place in my heart, and the city has always had a crime issue, but things seem to have gone amok there.

I think you just QED'd yourself with the location details.

Someone tried to steal from my car twin nights ago.  They saw a partially open window and figured it would be easy.
They were really surprised when I said "what the fark?"  They didn't bother to check to see if there wasn't a person sitting in the car.
They ran away really fast...i haven't seen a person run that fast in a very long time.

I lived there mid-80s to mid-90s. There was definitely crime then, but less edge to it. I lived in the lower Fillmore and Inner Mission and walked everywhere, even home from bars at night. A few hassles, but nothing serious. When SF was more affordable, it was friendlier, less stressed. It was Northern Cal. With tech and money, it became more So. Cal. The weather even got hotter. And they planted more friggin Palm trees. I always hated palms in SF (except Dolores).

Better. Cops in my city got a call at a trailer park. While they were inside, someone slashed all the tires on their squad car. Tore off the outside mirrors and smashed the back window.
