Safe Neighborhood?

I thought I lived in a nice area of town. There hasn't been any crime in
our neighborhood until this weekend. I had a camera stolen out of my car.
No, my car wasn't locked, because I thought I lived in a safe neighborhood.
I told myself that the thief most likely would have broken a window if I
had locked my car. I knew it would be a waste of time to call the police,
thieves and criminals can do whatever the hell they want.
