Night burglaries all. Could the shorter days be part of the rise of burglary? I've heard of other crimes more likely to be committed in the dark, but not burglary; I've been told they happen mainly during the day, when no one's home.

It's only going to be a matter of time before a headline reads "Burgular shot to death during home invasion". Perhaps then an x-box, a laptop or a flat screen TV will not look so appealing to the opportunists that commit these crimes. I've taken every step possible to protect my home and the few things I have that I worked hard for. It will be over "my" dead body one will need to walk if they enter my home when I am there and take my belongings. I just hope the person who inevitably shoots one of thes low lifes to death is within his legal rights to do so. My moral rights tell me to pull the trigger if someone crosses the threshold of my door without permission. Legally I can not do this (which is a shame) unless my life is imminent danger. I should be able to sit in my home, totally content and relaxed without even having to think about whether or not I shold kill an intruder. It should just be legal to do. Victims of crimes like this need more rights.

man, so many burglaries in that area. sad that there are so many low lives think they can take what other people have earned. My advice: get an alarm system. Don't know how you could feel safe there otherwise.
