Any assault that isn't self defence is a crime. Unfortunately, the only way to stop a thief is to prevent their theft. Don't leave shit in your vehicle or hide it and leave compartments open to make it seem as though there is nothing inside.
i hear what you're saying, but 3yrs ago when my window got smashed and clothes were stolen, i had left my doors unlocked, and yet they STILL broke it. thieves are smrt yo
greg said he used to put a sign on his window saying that there were no valuables in his truck, and that it was open, and he never got vandalized. so maybe they can read.
