Death penalty for these miscreants. Teach them a lesson.

How would killing them teach them a lesson? Serious question.

Awesome handling of the situation by the homeowner. Great that they found all of their missing stuff, too!

Thank heaven that for once, the youth of this town can see that crime does not pay. Too often the headlines indicate that it does pay, and pay quite well.

Sheesh, prevent all the crime drama by getting a dog. You'll have vet bills but won't have to deal w/these types of mental midgets masquerading as sly criminals.

Hmmm is exactly right. A dog is a good investment and a good companion.Built in protection and lots of fun!
