"On March 4th no cars were stolen"
I was sure I had read it wrong the first time so I paid a bit more attention and sure enough there is was again. I thought it was a little odd that no crime was news and figured maybe it was someone at the station playing around a little or had miss typed something.
Then I get off the bus for work and see the local newspaper, the Winnipeg Sun. A full page colour picture with the caption 'Thieves Shut Out.' Once I saw that I just had to read the article. Apparently on March 4th no cars were stolen in Winnipeg. This was the first time that had happened in decades. Yes I said decades. Apparently crime is so bad that the lack of crime has become news.
The article in the paper spun things in a way to say that it was proof that the anti-car theft campaigns were working. I ony hope that is the case, because I really don't like my odds of keeping my car otherwise.
