Down to the Wire: Obama’s DOJ Issues Scathing Report on Systemic Abuse Within Chicago Police
The report also denounced what it concluded was a widespread culture of covering up police misconduct, including tampering with video and audio evidence and intimidating witnesses. “A code of silence exists, and officers and community members know it,” the report said. One sergeant told DOJ investigators that, “if someone comes forward as a whistleblower in the department, they are dead on the street.”

Assuming you actually have something where you live affectionately known as a local hardware store,  maybe you can get them to stock it.

In my hometown near Chitcago they left the fire engine running 24/7 in the winter and it caught fire and burned the firehouse down.

So I'm skeptical, not about the below being a bogus claim (seems so), but about this idea that you can lift the hood of your vehicle to "prevent overheating".

 Around our area it seems to be accepted wisdom among cabbies that you can prevent overheating by "popping" the hood, i.e. releasing the closure latch so that only the secondary "hook" is engaged, with the hood thus being raised an inch or two. I've even seen cabs driving in city traffic with the hood popped part way open like this. The explanation that the hoods of these cars were open to "prevent overheating" seems to be an adoption of this cab driver wisdom.

Maybe it came from the time before coolant systems were properly designed, particularly on US made autos (remember flex fans from J.C. Whitney? They were deep bladed for more airflow at idle, but were supposed to flatten at speed to make them more aerodynamic. Had one on my 68 Buick). Overheating in a properly filled and nonleaking system today would be unheard of, I would think. And I don't know of popping the hood like this would help if it was a Godawful hot day and your radiator/condenser was so clogged with bugs that it had restricted airflow through it. Maybe L8 can chime in on this one.

That's where I was, too. I'd seen some of the police response and it sounded like nonsense, but modern mythology is a powerful thing. I'll buy that they're not doing it to block the cams tho.
 
This from the police made me snicker: "The problems are well known to Chevrolet. May I suggest contacting Chevrolet directly and demanding a remedy and retrofitting of the correction at their expense."

Oh, well. Consider me Snopsed

I worked in a scuzzy liquor store in Oakland and we never got robbed. A guy tried to break in by climbing down a vent but all he accomplished was tearing out the duct work. But I always wondered why some places got held up all the time and we never did. I always made it really clear that guns were not required... all anyone had to do was ask and I'd hand them the whole cash drawer. :shrug: Probably just lucky.

 
When I lived in Petersburg there was one right near a freeway entrance and it got robbed constantly. The thieves would be miles down I95 by the time the cops arrived.
