    ...your kitchen knives, cars, baseball bats, and lawn darts?

    How about if your mobile phone is stolen and before you realize it, it's used in the commission of a crime? Should you be responsible for the crime - perhaps executed if it was used in the commission of a murder?

    Question: If the person using your stolen cell phone to commit a crime received an enhanced sentence (perhaps a sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole) because of their prior convictions, should you also get the enhanced sentence or the more lenient "first time offender" variant? (I would think the enhanced one as you were responsible for your cell phone falling into the hands of a repeat offender and could have instead insured that it was stolen by less dangerous person with a bit more caution on your part).

    Sounds like a great idea.
