Do as We Say, Not as We Do
Nearly 7,000 cars have been stolen in Denver this year, and about a quarter of every car stolen is what's called a "puffer," a car left unattended with the engine running, with the intention of warming up the engine. Denver police have for weeks urged residents not to leave their cars "puffing," but somebody on the force didn't get the message -- an unmarked car belonging to a Denver police detective was stolen while puffing Monday morning, according to a report by KUSA-TV, the local NBC affiliate. The 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo had a laptop, a traffic vest and a pair of handcuffs, but no weapons. "I have questions," Denver Police Chief Gerry Whitman said in a press conference yesterday.
