After a lull in break-ins for about 2 months there was another rash of burglaries in our neighborhood - almost one every few days during the day. The police caught a break after the last break-in. An iPad which had tracking software on it was stolen. This led the police to the criminal - a 14 year-old white male who lived in the neighborhood.
All sorts of questions came to mind immediately, but as we all know - it is the homegrown ones that are hardest to find, perhaps because all of our suspicions are centered on those who are not like us. As the current situation stand there are some who are still advocating for installation of cameras as well as hiring private security for additional patrols.
