    He should act on these new instincts.
    The victims say the back of their apartment is a dark area, and they hope more lighting will be placed there in the future.
    Why? So the criminals can see better?

    Better lighting won't protect you any more than a cop two blocks over.

    I disagree with you on the lighting. Improved lighting allows you to better observe the perimeters of your home and helps deter theft for fear that they will more likely be spotted or identified. Motion sensor lights are great for this.

    Wylde007 that is pretty funny, why so criminals can see better. Thats a shame though epicly before the holidays.

    baseball bats do not cut anything, guns put holes through things.

    I hope these people get a gun to protect themselfs and use their rights. I wonder why they did not lock the back door?

    A good reason to be armed in your own house.

    Who needs a gun in VB?

    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Why do they always wait for the horse to get out of the barn before they consider closing the door?

    Much less upkeep on an empty barn, and besides, you can reminiss on the missing horse. Who would afterall, want to take a proactive approach to one's own safety?
