Police Helping Thieves
This is a weird article. Local police are putting yellow stickers on cars with visible packages, making it easier for thieves to identify which cars are worth breaking into.
EDITED TO ADD 12/19): According to a comment, this was misreported in the news. The police didn't just put signs on cars with visible packages, but on all cars. Cars with no visible packages got a note saying: "Nothing Observed (Good Job!)." So a thief would have to read the sign, which means he's already close enough to look in the car. Much better.
