The ins and outs of having a car stolen in Chicago

Our car was stolen. Police here seem to shrug it off. Is there anything else I should or could be doing, or just take it as a rather abrupt lesson in the transience of possessions? [more inside]

should I prosecute the thief of my car?

My car was stolen and I've been asked whether I would be willing to prosecute the theft, if the police find him/her. Does anybody know what would be involved in this and/or what my options would be concerning handling of the theft/thief? -Purplefiber's roommate

My car, she is missing.

So my car was stolen last night from outside of my work. The police are confident that -- considering the age, make and condition -- it will turn up in anywhere from a few days to a week. [more inside]

What's this film about a couple of young boys that stole a car?

MemoryJogFilter: While reading this story, I was reminded of a film from the late eighties/early nineties about a couple of young boys that stole a car (I think it was red and I think it was a Pontiac). That is unfortunately, about all I remember. Anybody have any ideas what the film was called/about?

How do I protect my car from thieves?

How do I protect my car from thieves? I headed out to work this morning and was confronted by this. (that would be all four tires and wheels - $750 worth) I have a Clifford alarm system, I always park in highly visible areas, I stay out of "bad areas", there is a police academy 100 yards from where this picture was taken. What do I do to make this never happen again? [more inside] [more inside]
