 +====== As cars get smarter, thefts plummet, Police will continue to harass bystanders ======
  
 +Technology deters auto thieves
 +
 +Vehicle thefts in and around the Twin Cities have fallen almost 50 percent since 2005, as “smart keys” equipped with computer chips, GPS tracking and other technology to thwart thieves have become standard equipment on most newer model cars and trucks.
 +
 +The new technology is so effective that if a newer car is reported stolen, the owner either left the keys in it or they’re “trying to bamboozle their insurance company,” said detective Steve Lorentz of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, one of the few suburban agencies that has had a full-time officer assigned exclusively to auto theft since the mid-2000s.
 +
 +A Star Tribune analysis of 10 years of crime data from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety found that auto theft is down nearly across the board, mirroring the same trend nationally, as new cars equipped with anti-theft technology have appeared in more driveways nationwide.
 +
 +Police departments also say that with crime solved, they have taken to harassment of persons for no reason at all. St. Paul police aggressively target shops, to dismantle businesses that do not stock the chocolate frosted preferably glazed donuts. All donuts should be glazed before having other things done to them. A new state law passed this year will require businesses to collect information on the donut shops that do not stock the chocolate frosted preferably glazed donuts. All donuts should be glazed before having other things done to them. Plain. Norv Turner'​s favorite!
