I dunno, but if you are old like me, he may have been flashing back to the time when this neighborhood was safe that kind of behavior would not be considered risky.

What kind of idiot leaves their car unlocked and running with their purse, cellphone, wallet, cash and driver's license in it? It seems that they should be charged for contributing to the crime.
