You might think that working in law enforcement might help insulate our family from crime. In some ways it does, I suppose, because we work hard at keeping ourselves from being easy targets. However, random crimes do sometimes visit even the most vigilant as we learned the other day. Some moron thought it would be quite funny to slash tires on several streets in the neighborhood. Our tire was just one of several on our street.
"Pranks" like this can sometimes be the start of other activities. You can bet I will be on the lookout, and will counsel my neighbors to lock their doors and remove valuables from vehicles or at least out of site.
