Looks like the THUGS who are pulling this crap must love Decatur... where car break-ins and armed robberies are a piece of cake.

I agree and here's why. Most people in Decatur are not likely to call the police unless it is THEIR OWN home, business or car being broken into. Most residents only want to complain about increasing crime but they themselves won't call the police when they see suspicious activity for fear of being thought racist, nosy, prying or paranoid or think they are too busy to pick up their cells to call 911 (when they have no problem texting or talking while driving). These are the same ones week after week reporting suspicious individuals AFTER their neighbor is victimized. PEOPLE WAKE UP! YOU yourselves are the best and first line of defense. Your eyes and ears are the first early warning system for the police. IF everyone would stop being so self absorbed and watch out for your neighbors, you may save your neighbor as well as yourself from being a victim. Most criminals ARE not one time offenders and have had multiple run-ins with the law prior. If thugs are stopped when peering into cars, walking and reading off house numbers over their cell, or loitering where they apparently have no business they stand a greater chance of being caught in the act so that they can be arrested. It's up to YOU to take back your neighborhoods assisted by the police. If you don't get involved and vigilant about calling the police when you notice something amiss, you have no business complaining.
