Common Sense. Where Is It?

I am not one for blaming the victim, but there's also something to be said for using common sense and taking responsibility. I was skimming through the local "Police Blotter" and noticed a recurring theme.
LARCENY: 
900 block Cornell St, 1/3 – 1/04 7:30 a.m.  A resident reported that an unknown person rummaged through her two unlocked vehicles and stole a laptop computer from one of them.  No suspects or witnesses at this time. 
800 block Sylvania Ave, 1/3 – 1/04 7:50 a.m.  A resident reported that an unknown person stole her purse from her unlocked vehicle.  The purse was later found inside a storm drain in the 1000 block of Littlepage Street, but the cash was missing from it.  No suspects or witnesses at this time. 
900 block Cornell St, 1/04 12:05 a.m. – 6:00 a.m.  A resident reported that an unknown person rummaged through his two unlocked vehicles and stole an iPod from one of them.  No suspects or witnesses at this time. 
Marstel Day, 2217 Princess Anne St, 12/27 – 1/02 8:00 a.m.  A manager reported that an unknown person entered the unlocked office and stole a computer and other electronic equipment.  No suspects or witnesses at this time. 
1100 block Prince Edward St, 1/3 – 1/5 11:00 a.m.  A resident reported that an unknown person stole loose change and other small items from both of his unlocked vehicles. No suspects or witnesses at this time. 
800 block Cornell St, 1/3 – 1/04 6:30 p.m.  A resident reported that an unknown person rummaged through his unlocked vehicle and stole a camera.  No suspects or witnesses at this time.
There were 5 other larcenies report that did not specifically mention unlocked vehicles or offices. However we are still looking at greater than a 50% rate of making it easy for the bad guy. In addition, there were two thefts from apparently unattended student backpacks.

Get your heads of the sand people!

    1. It's not uncommon for the report to home robberies via unlocked front doors as well.
