Default SAFETY TIP PREVENT IDENTITY THEFT

I was just sent this video and thought I would post it.

http://video.sheriff.org/psa_cartheft.shtml

Video was made by the Sheriff's Department of Broward County, FL and talks about increased crime.

I did all the things that they say never do, prior to watching this.

Having a convertible and loathing have the top on, I'm pretty good about taking my purse with me, even when it gets in the way but pretty good really isn't good enough. Hopefully, this will get me to be more vigilant.

Thanks!

Irony - Ken Jenne who is the Broward County Sheriff in the video is described below:


"Kenneth C. "Ken" Jenne, II (born 1947), is a former Democratic member of the Florida State Senate and a former sheriff of Broward County, which encompasses Fort Lauderdale in southeastern Florida. Jenne resigned as sheriff in September 2007, after having pleaded guilty to federal tax evasion and mail fraud. On November 16, 2007, he was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.[1] He is currently incarcerated as prisoner 77434-004 in a minimum-security prison camp in Virginia."

Village Kid,

All I can say is that we are all human. Fortunately he will be know for one good deed he did. What made you check him out? I never would have thought to do.

He is a well known figure in Florida and one I always admired. Just proves your point. We are all human and even the best ones slip sometimes.
