Pextor got me watchin "Jacked" last night, so I recorded a few episodes. The first episode that I watched this morning had a stolen green ZX2. That says 1 of 2 things... either Escorts are appealing enough to steal... or thieves will steal anything!

What I find hilarious is the bait car they put out. It's an Audi A4, and they leave it unlocked (possibly running, I can't tell) with the keys in and the parking lights on - oh yeah, in bad neighborhoods of Newark as well. These morons still try to steal it. Having gone to college in that shiat city, I find it all the more amusing.

I was thinking the same thing. how many red flags do you need to realize it's not a good idea?

yeah, my wife and I were pretty suprised at that as well. Funny thing is the one episode, the cops think that this one guy was going to steal the car... he walks over to a pay phone... and a few minutes later(seconds on the show)... it comes over the CB that a good samaritan called and reported a car sitting with it's lights on and keys in the ignition.

There are still good people in this world... even in the arm pit of Jersey. (no offense, but it is a pretty bad section).


Oh... and for the Jersey people... know how the bridge going into Trenton says "Trenton makes, the world takes"? You do know what they are talking about right? Yes, you guessed it, TRASH! They pay good Ole PA to take it!

Trenton is (mostly) another armpit. Actually, if Trenton is an armpit, Newark is the @sshole. That said, they don't send Newark garbage out of state, at least not all of it. They incinerate it at a plant not far enough out of town, for power production. That causes the smell that most people make fun of NJ about when they drive the turnpike (the incinerator is right off of it). Not to defend Newark in any way.

It is interesting, however, that none of the show that I have seen is filmed in University Heights (which is the only habitable part of town as far as I'm concerned). There were decent police forces on the Rutgers/NJIT campuses (not rent-a-cops like a lot of schools have). Maybe they are actually doing their job better than they appear to be.
