    Just a heads up for Coton fields folk, a walk in burglary on Thurs, and my car broke into last night, right next to the house robbery, they got £1 .50 worth of stuff from me.
    Looks like there's a moron checking the estate out.

    Sorry to hear that, We've been super cautious since we had a sneak-in a couple of years ago. It doesn't help there's a lot of places to run and hide in.

    There is no excuse for thieving from another member of society, especially one you don't know. If you are starving, or have no shelter, there are places that can help without you resorting to ******* up someone else's day. Hell, if there is something you need that desperately then steal it from a shop, at least thats impersonal. I've known people never quite be the same after a burglar has invaded what they thought was their own safe place in the world, an old mate of mine couldn't get to sleep unless he had a knife beside him for years after waking up to a burglar in his room (who stabbed him in the leg with a screwdriver before legging it).

    I'll never shed a tear for a dead thief, it is something to be celebrated not mourned. If it means one less person losing their personal posessions to a dolescum tosser who can't be arsed to earn them himself then I can only smile. If that makes me sound like shoes then so be it!

    My method of dealing with crime is cheap, easy and 100% effective against re-offenders.

    Arguing otherwise is impossible I'm afraid, as death is absolute.

    Please find copy and paste of a neighbourhood watch email I've just found in my inbox:

    Suspicious vehicle to be aware of.


    Dear Watch Member,

    There has been a report from the West Midlands area of two males taking money from an elderly couple for work at their home that was never carried out.

    The males were driving a red Combo van with a part reg: KU59 LF.

    Offenders committing this type of offence have been known to travel to different areas so could you please report any sightings of this vehicle to the police immediately.

    Could you also please remind your neighbours, especially the elderly and vulnerable, that police and Trading Standards advice is never to buy or sell at the door.

    I like to think the hand axe idly lying in the hallway would deter most attempting the distraction technique, as it is much nearer to me than them.

    Yeah, had a few emails from OWL about them. Time to check your locks, especially window ones often forgotten about as you are unlikely to need to open most again this year!

    We keep every window in the house locked and the keys hidden away (never understood the theory behind locking the window and then putting the key on the window sill) as our insurance stipulates this as a requirement of cover (when in bed or out of the house, we are allowed to open the windows when we're in!).

    Just saw on facebook that an ex of mine has been burgled, think she lives near the common. Stole an ancient laptop that had loads of photos on, an ipod and her jewelry box. If anyone gets offered anything similar feel free to give them a kicking before calling the cops.
