Ha, a bit. BUT, one needs to take a step back and understand how that can happen. Live anywhere for an extended length of time and it is easy to think that is how everywhere is. Also, the last 30 yrs or so have seen change (which of course has always been a thing) happen at a rate never before seen in history. This is unnerving to one set in his ways, I'm not picking on him, as I often feel the same way. Just turned 52, and I will not lie when I say my mind is blown by all the tech coming about these days, but I try, (and often fail) to at least accept that it is ok, even if I don't "get" it. Younger folks are not trying to fuck with you, they are just living what they know, at the speed they know. To the younger, remember that you too will be older, and to my age group, try not to bitch about the young, they are just living and loving life as we once did, granted VERY differently. Addiction and thievery are nothing new, but I think because there are just so many more people, and because every mother-loving thing is recorded and reported, it seems worse? I hope the op gets his bike back, and wonder why, as is done in neighborhoods by me, (lower income area's I may add) people don't band together a bit and look out for each other, and their property? In my apt group, the late nighter's, myself included keep an eye on the parking lots and buildings overnight, and the retired and non working types that stay home keep an eye out during the day. There is precious little property crime around here, as the word has gotten out that the people here care, not only about their stuff, but of the belonging's of their neighbors. We see you, we will call the law, and/or deal with you ourselves if the cops will not. Thieves are slackers by nature, they go where no one cares. If we could all accept and get along better, this does not mean you have to be buddy buddy with everyone, but just look out, the thieves would find themselves with more than the law to worry about.
