(KPLR) – Getting fed up over car breakins.  Here's JB with “The Way It Oughta Be”.

Whenever we report on a string of car break-ins, that report can have a negative economic impact.  Potential customers stop going to the businesses where these crimes happen.

Business owners must feel completely frustrated by that.  So here's an idea that might help them out.
