    NH Woman Speaks Out After Tire Theft

    Police are investigating after someone stole the tires off a mother's car in New Hampshire. The victim's daughter is not silently waiting for police to find a suspect.

    A Facebook post on a Derry, New Hampshire, community page is picking up steam.

    A frustrated daughter wrote the post after her mom's Honda Accord had all four wheels stolen overnight Tuesday.

    "To the absolute scum that decided to destroy her hard earned possession, I sincerely hope the drug fix was worth it," the post read, in part.

    "They put half of it on a dummy jack and then the other half on some cinder blocks and then somewhere this morning, it fell off on one side, so it landed on the cinder blocks and completely dented the frame," said Brittany Leavitt.

    Leavitt said it happened at The Fairways Apartments where her mom lives.

    "She works so hard for that car," Leavitt said. "She works every day of her life trying to afford the car."

    That mom, who was still upset Wednesday, says she couldn't get to work in the morning.

    She works in Andover, supervising people with special needs.

    She's had the Accord for less than a year, and her daughter says she makes sure she does everything she can to protect it.

    "I just wanted people to become aware of it," Leavitt said.

    [NATL] Student Suspended for Posting Warnings of Rapist in School Bathrooms

    A sophomore at Maine's Cape Elizabeth High School was suspended for bullying after she left sticky notes in two girls bathrooms reading, "There’s a rapist in our school and you know who it is.” "It makes me angry that I'm being punished for bullying and a rapist isn't being punished for raping people," Aela Mansmann said.

    She says that's she posted on Facebook.

    "I had no idea that it was going to get so many comments and personal experiences, people reaching out, how it happened to them," she said.

    Leavitt hopes for more security and maybe cameras at the apartment complex.

    "People just have no respect," she said. "It doesn't matter where you park, where you live in Derry, it's everywhere."

    The victim has insurance and now has a rental car to get to work on Thursday.
