I agree in principle with the majority of the comments that people have to be responsible for their own actions (locks, etc) however, my experience from this past Saturday night suggests that lawmakers have to be responsible for providing a system that works to curb crime at every level. At approximately 8pm I was organizing my garage and had placed two bicycles outside the man-door while working. The man-door was left open while I worked. I went into the house for less than a minute and when I returned one bike was missing. I managed to see the general direction that the male and female thieves took off in and pursued until I lost them. Point is, the bikes were less than 10 ft away, two cars in the dirveway and still the thieves had the "oh well, nothing will happen to me anyway" attitude to walk right up the driveway and steal the bike. Tougher laws come from government so when you vote, you may want to ask each candidate "what will you do about the epidemic in crime"? Make sure you can trust the individual. Federal PCs platformed on tougher penalties but I have yet to see any change. Comments Bryan? Hayes that is.
