Drivers in this dangerous city are looking over their shoulders as teenagers commit this eye-popping crime

Many Americans can remember a time when people felt comfortable leaving their homes and cars unlocked.

These days, even locking up your property does not deter criminals.

And teens in this dangerous city have taken advantage of this security flaw to commit crimes.

Los Angeles has become one of America’s auto theft hubs 

Crime has plagued the streets of Los Angeles for many years now.

What has changed is that neighborhoods once considered nice such as North Hollywood have turned into very dangerous areas. 

Most recently, gangs of young people have started exploiting security flaws in vehicles, allowing them to steal them left and right. 

Kia and Hyundai vehicles in particular have a known flaw that allows thieves to easily start the vehicle without a key. 

Although these automobile manufacturers have issued recalls for these flaws, many people across the nation have yet to fix their cars. 

This allows thieves, primarily young men in urban areas, to steal these vehicles with ease. 

In the Los Angeles police division of the Foothills and North Hollywood for example, police report that over 700 vehicles were stolen this year alone. 

Despite this alarming spike in auto theft, law enforcement officials have done everything in their ability to deflect blame and coddle the young thieves. 

For example, North Hollywood detective Lt. Ryan Lee told NBC Los Angeles, “Because of their juvenile age, we certainly want to try to surround them with wraparound services, we want to try to divert them.”

Ryan Lee added that, “It’s particularly fueled through social media, and kids are using that, and they’re using social media to kind of show their joy-riding and stuff.”

North Hollywood Area Capt. Warner A. Castillo even went as far as to deflect any blame, telling NBC Los Angeles, “This is a problem that’s nationwide.”

“It’s not specific to Los Angeles or even the state of California,” the flustered law enforcement officer added. 

Castillo and other Los Angeles officials point to the Kia Boys trend in other cities across America, which has died down significantly in recent years. 

This trend entailed gangs of young hoodlums stealing cars for the sake of joyriding and committing more crimes.

Fortunately, this trend has tapered off in some cities as law enforcement officers ramp up crime prevention programs and more people fix their flawed vehicles. 

Los Angeles officials have allowed crime to build right under their nose

Theft in particular has skyrocketed in Los Angeles in recent years. 

Many young people do not seem to care about facing repercussions for their actions, causing them to steal without a care in the world.

This lack of fear directly results from Los Angeles officials refusing to hold these young criminals accountable for their actions. 

As long as LAPD officers and Los Angeles lawmakers refuse to do their jobs, Angelenos can expect car theft to keep rising.
