This is a discussion on Two odd call outs in a row; something too think about. within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by Rugergirl Uh, oh here is that "good neighborhood" thing again.

I live in a gated community and the first year I was here someone tried to break in. Fortunately they weren't able to break through the sliding glass door but it was shattered. (it had a heavy duty plastic film on it for hurricanes and shade)
My dad lives in a gate community (townhouse) and one of the owners of a townhouse came home to find his house had been broken into. Turns out it was the neighbor who got up into the roof of his townhouse and then cut into the neighbors townhouse and ransacked it. Cops in this case didn't particularly give a flip. That's not a slam on cops in general but this particular agency is known for being stupid when it comes to responding to crimes. A good reason to not own townhouses or if you do own one to get up in your part of the roof and reinforce it to make it harder to cut through.
These both took place in good areas. There have been other thefts where I live as well.
People forget that BG's like to live in good areas too.
