Maybe you were the "teens" who emailed in response to our Craigslist ad about a 10-family yard sale, asking for permission to take the leftovers for a "crafts project." Maybe you were the mild-mannered shopper who inquired what would become of any unsold item. Maybe you never even bothered to shop our sale that day. But shame on us for being naive enough to think that donations planned for the Disabled Veterans charity would be safe overnight on a curb in a Fullerton cul-de-sac; the next morning, every box was gone. We do this sale every year; next year, you may find some "surprises" in the boxes you steal, you thieving scumbags!

"...next year, you may find some "surprises" in the boxes you steal..." That or you can store them somewhere that isn't curbside. Silly suggestion, I know. :)

Nope, telling it like it is. Pretty tiring having to protect our property from 'grubs' all the time. If your not standing on top of it they seem to think it's free game.

The "Inbounds" believe that once they make it across the border they can act like they still live in that 3rd world country they came from. sadly one must learn to protect one's property from these that have been taught from birth to steal. Lying is a birth rite with inbounds. they posses little if anything to offer . The exit exam for second grade is based on the book "you too can be a lawn mower" . A few properly placed items for them to take home with them would be a good idea. To scare them off just leave a job application or a 1040 short form, they are afraid of both of those. Also a book on "how to properly speak the language of the country you are raping" is a good deterrent. An insurance form for car insurance or DMV drivers license handbook works well also. Hope your sale did well, thanks for helping others.

I was referring to the 80% of your reply that had nothing to do with the article. Just some advice: don't leave items you wish to keep on the curb, in the street, or in that general area. Hell, even the city trash man can mistake it for crap and take it.

Well, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled years ago that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy in the stuff you leave at the curb. Could be that a good, God-fearin', law-abidin' American took the stuff!
