. . . and for car mirrors!

Yes, startling and horrible that people would murder for car mirrors. I was reminded of a conference I attended in the US in the late 80s with scholars from the Soviet Union.  Each had a $100 bill provided for expenses from their government. They wanted someone to drive them to the nearest Sears store so they could stock up on ... wait for it ... windshield wipers. They were apparently regularly stolen and people would uninstall them from their own cars whenever they parked, if they could. We forget what it can be like in some of these countries elsewhere on the planet. (which is not to say that there aren't also crimes in the US which are hard to fathom...)
