Now that school is out and many after school sports are finished, we have a lot of bored juveniles. Not all of them will turn to crime of course, but some may. We need to get low cost programs running in the high crime areas and encouraging the kids to do something more structured than just hanging out together.
I feel for those who were burgled, but since this type of crime is opportunist, locking doors and windows before you go out is always something that makes sense.
