Forewarned is Forearmed

Everyone who knows me knows I have a not-so-secret weakness for reality TV.  Not the stupid stuff, the nity-gritty stuff that just might teach you something.  I'm a long-time follower of "The Biggest Loser;" nothing else makes me actually want to go to the gym.  I watch an episode of "Hoarders" when I need a reason to clean up the house.  "Parking Wars" helps me laugh at my own DMV and car registration headaches, while probably helping me avoid a future freak-out in the event that my car is mysteriously impounded.  "COPS," "The First 48," "Crime 360," and "Manhunters: Fugitive Task Force" just fuel my morbid fascination with murder and crime investigation.

I've recently discovered a series called "Jacked: Auto Theft Task Force" about a special crackdown on auto theft in Newark, New Jersey.  The opening sequence begins with sobering statistic. 

"Every 26 seconds a car is stolen in the U.S."

Really?  Goodbye, I'm off to go buy a club for my steering wheel.
