They don’t care that it hurts us


I was walking with a friend near the Stewart Farmhouse this fall.


I was walking with a friend near the Stewart Farmhouse this fall.

We had returned to the large open area parking lot on the west side to put a jacket in my van. Then we sat nearby on a bench for about half an hour. In that time, someone found the opportunity to throw a large rock through my passenger-side window.

As I was visiting my elderly father who has cancer, I’d left clothes in the van and, under the ‘mess,’ I’d left my camera. This was stolen, everything else rummaged through.

Speedy Glass was helpful and had the window in in a couple of hours. It cost $296. I have $300 deductible. The camera is not covered.

When I discovered the situation, folks said there had been broken glass in the same spot the week before. One lady said someone had thrown a rock through her window in front of her home in Ocean Park.

When calling the police, you get a file number, but they do not attend. This is a costly situation for someone living on pensions. Now I have to save for a new camera and, of course, the photos are irreplaceable.

I guess this happens all the time. Revolving-door criminals and addicts. These criminals are brazen and don’t realize, or care, how this affects the victim.
