  1. Unfortunately, your cohort has fallen victim to the system. Yes, police have a duty to serve and protect their communities. Whether or not that includes guaranteeing the safety of his car is unclear. That being said, he had to pay $140 for two reasons. First, he is expected to have insurance and theft is often covered under a policy. Second, regardless of their solvency, he has a claim against the individuals who stole his car for the costs that stem from that theft. Thus, for the foregoing reasons, it makes sense that he is responsible for the fee.

  2. The Police are not here to protect you they are here to protect the STATE.

  3. Um didn’t the cops recover his stolen vehicle? There’s your tax dollars at work. Auto insurance is your back up muscle. Yeah I agree with the comment above from Alex too.

  4. The guys who stole the car will have to pay some money though, won’t they? They probably had to pay either a small bail fee or a holding fee for the time they were in police custody. Also: if Spencer does press charges, they will have to pay lawyer fees, damages, etc. Right? So they aren’t getting off scot free either. I think ultimately Spencer was pretty lucky in this situation, I’m surprised the cops even found his car before it was taken to a chop shop. He came out of this pretty unscathed, I think.
