Well people are getting desperate more and more I'm seeing robbery's in broad daylight. The crime is considered a bigger offense when it is done in the day time. What makes it so bad we haven't seen anything yet, soon everyone will be walking or riding with their guns, being afraid for their life and their belongings, we do not have enough of police officer's on the street verse's the number of people out of jobs, and have no other means of income. Now with the cold weather approaching, we are gonna see even more robberies. Just saying! Realty is what I call it. So Get Ready!

I interrupted him breaking into my car in 2008, he was later identified by fingerprints and prosecuted. He admitted he was looking for items to steal and sell, admitting also that he observed lots of toys and childrens' items in my trunk. I was a single mom at the time. I googled his name and found he was arrested for the same thing before. It was only a matter of time that he would graduate to another level of crime. I do not feel sorry for him-only for his mother who will no doubt have to bear the emotional burden of his poor choices and visit him behind bars. He deserves no benefit of the doubt as it pertains to the state of the economy. He is a criminal-plain and simple-who has had plenty of time to find a job and instead chooses to victimize others and steal. Lock him up and throw away the key.

When I was in college, someone broke into my apartment, passed my roommates' room, entered mine and tried to rape me. There had been breakins in the neighborhood earlier,so I had bought a realistic looking toy gun and put it under my pillow for just such an occasion. Sure enough, in the dark, it fooled the guy and he left. I shudder to think what might have happened otherwise.
However, the local police handled it by saying, "You sure it wasn't some boyfriend of yours?
