While shopping today at the Guitar Center in San Antonio, my family had our back glass broken out and was robbed of a guitar, computer and other personal property. The car was parked in the front door of this business.

Needless to say we will never visit nor spend money in this criminal infested town again, and we will tell everyone we know to avoid this Guitar Center. It is dangerous in broad day light to be parked in the parking lot of this business.

You are probably right about that, I'm not a racist, but I am a realist.

My kids have looked forward to their trip to Sea World for weeks, my heart is broken for them right now, driving home trying to console a young child who doesn't understand how awful people have become. His favorite guitar, signed by favorite artist is gone forever. He has always loved to go to the Guitar Center here in Dallas, but I doubt he will ever feel the same, now that the employee's of the store in SA have been so rude and nasty to them.

Oddly, their camera monitor was broken and no footage was available. The police treated my kid's as if they were in some way responsible for the theft. The thief left blood and finger prints, but I doubt they try to find them.

We are out a couple of thousand dollars, they were robbed of luggage, ipods, nexus, computer,guitar, clothes and jewelry.

I'm so upset about this. Thank you for responding to my post and allowing me to vent, I'm setting here worrying my self silly until my kids get home safely.

I find myself wondering if they were followed from the Omni Hotel?

The police won't put much effort to find those thugs. Theyll just write a report and file it away with the rest. They'd rather be visiting their girlfriends for a quickie than doing their job. You know they are some of the highest paid police officers in Texas and arrogant to boot. Alas, such is life in the big city.

Arrogant is right, down right nasty and I recommend a pay decrease for the fools.

I miss the good ole day's growing up on the farm when things were simple and people were kind and honest. Those day's are gone for good, I'm afraid.

After a stop at Best Buy, the kids will be home soon. Getting new tech gear has eased their pain, somewhat, but they are slowly remembering each piece of property that has been stolen from them.

This has been a sad day for my family.

Work hard for your money and some thug takes it away from you in the blink of an eye. What a sorry bunch of bastards! But that's typical around this Podunk town filled with sorry ass losers!

I agree. My kids could have taken a nice long vacation to a beautiful destination for the money it is costing them.

These loosers broke the passenger side, back seat window, and evidently they were a small person because that space is small. They were careful not to open doors and activate the alarm.

They didn't take 2 cell phones that were in plain sight, didn't want to be traced, I imagine.

Did I mention that the security guard found the broken window as the kids were leaving the store? He told them they should have been watching the car themselves and maybe this wouldn't have happened.

My family made it home ok, but my 11 yr old grandson is very upset, he lost all of his belongings to a stinking thief and he won't be sleeping well for awhile.

So you will let one incident judge the whole city? I understand you are angry and sad for the stuff they took but that can happen anywhere. I thought everyone knew that you need to hide valuables when you have them in the car. You should never leave things exposed to where they can be seen by someone looking into your car. I learned that when I was 15 years old. Do you honestly think that this never would have happened in Houston, Dallas or Austin? Are you really that naive?

I thought everyone knew it was against the law for people to take property that doesn't belong to them.
I guess its her fault for them breaking into her vehicle so why don't we focus all of our attention on what she didn't do to protect het valuables and not focus on what's wrong with our criminal justice system.

The fact is we travel to Houston and Dallas and Austin regularly and it didn't happen there, it happened in SA. Nothing was exposed, the windows are tinted in the new Infinity SUV. The shattered glass is black. I think the stinking thieves simply thought we were a good mark and they would probably score valuables.

And, yes, this one incient has made me bitter towards San Antonio.

Hispanic with a brain, your name makes it sound like you are one of a few. Shame on you!

I'm not sure if it's by the mall or not, it is on San Pedro.

I feel like the police see so much crime in SA they are stone cold and could care less whether the crime is solved or not. The CSI spent an hour taking finger prints and blood samples from inside and outside the car, gathering evidence that probably will never be looked at again.

Why would they pay an investigative team hundreds of dollars to investigate a crime they have no intention of solving?

What a terrible waste of time and money.

This crime was in no way the fault of my family, they are the victim's and the ones who have to pay thousands (increased to $3,000 since yesterday)of dollars.

Crime does pay in San Antonio, evidently.

You're right. It's not her fault it's the losers fault for breaking the glass and stealing stuff that didn't belong to them but everyone knows not to leave valuables in clear sight. It's common sense not to. Sound to me like Pearl is one of those people who think crime only happens in "bad" neighborhoods and never in "rich" neighborhoods. Sorry your stuff was taken but that doesn't reflect on everyone in San Antonio and if you think it does then you're ignorant!

My common sense tells me you are an angry, insulting, brainless pig, and the only reason you came here is to insult me?

Am I right?

Insult you? "My common sense tells me you are an angry, insulting, brainless pig, and the only reason you came here is to insult me?"

LOL!

I used to live in Houston and had my house broken into. Does that mean that Houston is bad?

I was at a Cowboys game at Texas Stadium a few years back and had my tire slashed. Does that mean Irving is bad and everyone has their tires slashed?

Don't be stupid. ONE incident does not make a city bad but if you say you will never return to S.A. then good riddance! We don't need crybabies here!

But property crime is off the chain here in SA. as compared to other comparable cities. The people here will steal a flower pot off your front porch here.

What's your point? I lived in Houston for 13 years and I lived in a "nice" neighborhood but I had my mail stolen from my mail box several times. I also had packages left at my front door stolen so my point is that no matter where you live, crime will be there. If you think different then you're either stupid or naive!

Hispanic, people like you are the reason she (and probably most people you come into contact with) has a bad opinion of San Antonio. All she did was vent about how she was broken into. Is it so hard to say "I'm sorry that happened to you" nooooo like most Hispanics you have to throw in your dimwit opinion and like MOST minority's, blame the victim. Our cops DO suck, well most cops suck. And yes I do know bad shit happens everywhere I lived in castle hills and had 2 trucks broken into, I now live wayyyy north of town and someone smashed my window in. I'm sure she knows bad shit happens, but to make her out to be a bad person for venting her frustration is just sad. Shame on you for not having the decency to show sympathy for not only her but her children.

Pearl, from an actual Hispanic who cares, I'm sorry this happened to you. Just know not all of us are like the jack holes that broke into your vehicle. We are also not all like the Hispanic with a "brain".

LMAO!!! Now that's funny! You come on here and attack me for my opinion then proceed to give yours? LOL! What a dipshit!

You say that I blamed her for this? Where in any of my statements did I blame her? Seems to me you're reading between the lines.

Instead of reading what you want to read why don't you read exactly what I said numbnuts?
