If you are reading this, you may be among one of the 49 million Americans who had a package stolen off your porch. Crime has gotten so out of hand, Amazon made the decision that it's easier just to send the packages to the local police station for you to pick up. They launched their new program this week. Of course, the first city is Washington, DC.
Don't anyone get it twisted. The PROPER way to deal with porch pirates is to set traps. Then

for all to enjoy. Should you choose not to think of those of us who hustle content for a living, this new program provides an alternative.
What you do is when you order a package, select for it to be sent to a storage locker. DC is the first city to have these lockers right outside of police stations. Then you go to the police station to pick up the package yourself.
It seems like an unnecessary pain in the keister. The problem is that in a lot of these crime-ridden progressive cities, one of the results of decades of progressive policies is finding new ways to prevent police from doing their jobs of serving and protecting. In a perfect world, crime wouldn't be so bad that you'd have to worry about having a box delivered to your house. That's no longer the world some of you voted to live in.
Having your package delivered to the police station makes things easier on everyone, I guess.
