    Praiseworthy homicide .

    Of course his family is upset .
    He was a wonderful kid who just fell in with
    The wrong crowd and was gonna enroll
    In college this fall.
    He also had a gun (guaranteed it was a stolen gun) in the car .
    And if confronted would have been happy to shoot the homeowner .

    It seems like all the cats hacked off down here are all from pickups and suv’s that naturally sit higher and don’t require use of a jack. UNLESS they do a two for one special and take your custom wheels and tires too.

    Like I’ve said elsewhere Toyota Tacoma,4 Runner & Land Cruiser models are prime targets for cat converter thefts because of their ride height. Thieves don’t even need a jack-they can take a crawler and a Sawzall and go the work-if they’re in a hurry they’ll hack it off!

    My Taco has an AC inverter built in. I'll bet I could run a hot wire under there to discourage pillbillies from yanking my ####.
