There are times, my friend,
When no matter how
brave the Noble Knight
No matter how swift
his Gallant Steed
No matter how pure the
Maiden he would rescue
No matter how Just the
cause for which he fights
There are times, my friend,
When the Dragon will still win.

But sometimes he don’t…

Yesterday around eight o’clock in the evening a man sees
3 young men with hoods on going into his neighbor’s car.
He went out and yelled, they ran.
He got in his car and called 911 and followed them
until the police got all three of them.
3 local boys… in their late teens and twenties.
What were they thinking ?
SHAME ON THEM!
What makes them think that they could just
steal other people’s belongings?
I really wish we had some form of Public Humiliation.
Imagine carrying a sign in front of the local courthouse that reads:
“I break into cars.”

Good Pickin's… from the Poet
I was away from home for about two weeks, returning on January 31st. On February 2nd I had a headache and went to bed early - 9:00 pm. Normally, I am a night owl and don't go to bed until between 2:00 and 4:00 am. I believe the following incident occurred because my routine is easily monitored.
The person who broke into my apartment thought I wasn't home. No lights had been on in my apartment during the time I was away. And, they were out early on this night.
So, at 11:00 pm my ADT security alarm beeped signaling that someone just opened my door. I own a service dog who started barking like a maniac with me yelling at him to be quiet. Thank goodness we made lots of noise!
Because, when I opened my bedroom door, no one was there! I had assumed the person who opened my door was a family member and the only other person who has a key to my apartment door.
I found that my apartment door was left ajar. I know someone picked my lock. Had I not properly closed my door before retiring the alarm would not have beeped.
The latch must be completely engaged in order for the door to beep and the door must be opened about half way for the security alarm to sound.
A formal report was not made to police as the officer I spoke with seemed certain that the deadbolt was not picked.
ADT Security Systems representatives tell me that the type of deadbolt that is on most apartment doors is easily picked by someone with the proper tools and a little practice.
My advice to everyone living in such an apartment is to block your door with something heavy or something that will make a lot of noise if your door is opened!
