Now I see concerned is a disgruntled homeowner. Maybe you need a security system? I feel for you. I'll shoot the bastard if they come into my home, get a gun and arm yourself. I had a guy get out of his Dodge Durango, on a Sunday morning at 10:25 am and walk right up to the side of my house and take a car battery that was from my car, they have no fear, if I had my shoes on He would have been dead.

A Bristol Township cop did nothing when i was robbed...a witness gave him a statement in my driveway that the thiefs went 3 houses away with my loot piled up in MY GARBAGE CANS. Even though my cans were visible by the cop on their property, the cop made excuses that it still wasn't good proof and did nothing. He made excuses as to why he couldn't take fingerprints in the house too. I guess I was interrupting his lunch feast. Thankfully the druggies who got my stuff are all in jail for drugs, and the house they were hanging in was foreclosed upon.
