    Thugs escalate from home invasion, to home invasion and sexual assault...

    ...And they got in through an open garage door.

    Locks alone will deter, not much, but some... Leaving a garage door open... STUPID.

    It's possible that this group of thugs has gotten bolder (if they did the previous home invasion and ATM cash grab)... next time, they may kill someone.

    At the very least, tell your acquaintances (Your friends probably already have guns) to:
    Secure their homes every time, with locks and deadbolts at a minimum.
    Have a plan for family members to shelter in place in the event of a home invasion; in a safe room for them to gather in.
    Shotgun Joe's double barrel might not have been sufficient against 4-5 intruders.

    Story here with more details in the video

    If someone doesn't stop them, they could likely kill on the next invasion.

    There have been a few threads recently where BGs gained access through an open/unlocked garage door. I now wait until the garage door is completely down before entering my house or leaving the driveway. We also now keep the door to the house locked at all times, in case the garage door is left open, and as an added measure of security.

    There are many sad aspects to stories like this one, but one thing I find personally disconcerting is that I no longer even bother to look for where it happened, because it is happening everywhere.

    I believe nobody should have to endure something like this, but come on lock your ****! I know somebody close who does not lock doors and there are 5 entrances to their home not including the garage. Whenever I house sit I go around locking their doors because I do not want to be the victim. My friends neighborhood had 10-11 home invasions a few years back, where the perpetrator's knew everyone's schedules and when to go in. All of the crimes took place during daylight hours, and out of the 10 or 11 homes, only one women was home. The men pointed a gun at her and to this day have not been caught. Electronics were mostly stolen. She later became a neighborhood watch lady.

    I know that when Alabama first started going through a backlog of DNA evidence they found a lot of matches from rape kits to felons in prison for burglary.

    Apparently if they broke into a house and if there was a woman there then it was a bonus to them.

    Tru dat.

    It is happening everywhere... Is it more frequent than it used to be, or is it just the instant information we can easily find on the internet? Not that it really matters...

    Most of us here have friends who have guns at the least, and probably some of our friends carry, too. But there are people we work with or see at social gatherings, or our kids soccer games, church, whatever; that don't have firearms, that are afraid of them, or whatever... People we know, but not friends we would hang out with.

    The costs of securing a home in a rudimentary manner are minimal... they may not even cost anything.. Many homes have deadbolts that are never used, just like they have smoke alarms with dead batteries.

    Pointing out that bad things happen to good people, and suggesting that they take rudimentary precautions, is simply people caring about people. You can't make them do anything. But you can suggest reasons they might.

    I try to let people I come into contact with who are not friends, but I have frequent interactions with at work or at some gathering, know that nearly 50% of this country's residents are facing tough times. What does this have to do with crime?

    Well, traditionally, crime was usually perpetrated against one's own "class." Bad/poor neighborhoods were where the most crime was committed... but since many of those in the bad neighborhoods have fallen on even tougher times, the predators in that area have had to venture afield to get anything... Now our saying "anytime, anywhere" is more true than it was, even say 10 years ago...

    This part scares me now. They've extended the metro from The District of Crime out to near my parents place out further in NoVA and the plan is to take it way out even further. Sure, it's going to be great for the lemming commuters, but one of the downsides(and there are many) is that the criminals are going to be able to hop on the metro for a paltry subsidized fee, run it out into upper-middle class lemming land and rob and pillage the unprepared and unawared.

    We're already seeing much more violent crimes happening further out in the NoVA suburbs now. This is just going to make it that much worse because we've given them a vehicle that they don't even have to steal. It's a hop and rob.

    We had a fair number of things stolen out of garages this summer, even after word was spread people continued to leave their garages open and cars unlocked. You cannot fix stupid I guess.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    I have a large garage (24'x36') with six windows, two bay doors, and one regular door connecting to a small breezeway that has two storm doors, leading to the kitchen door. As you can tell that would be a burglar's dream with all those entry points. So I have installed three motion sensors in the garage, and a fourth in the breezeway facing the garage door. They all have their own coded beeps so I know exactly where an intruder is.

    Use a zip-tie to tie up the emergency release bracket on the garage door, one small enough that with a solid yank on the cord you can still release it and break the tie. Otherwise it's pretty easy to unlock a garage door with a coat hanger. You can google for videos.

    In our former home we had not one but two doors from the garage into the house, one of which was almost right outside our bedroom. It also had 2 side windows which would have been very easy to break and crawl through. We were also not "always armed" there as we are now. Even though we live in whatever can be considered a fairly safe area these days, we were fortunate to not have a break in.

    Now we have an unattached garage. - Just 4 steps away from our front door and under a wide overhang. This was not our choice, but it is a much better arrangement for safety. We still keep the garage shut. We have more sensors for our alarm system than we did in our previous homes and we are also always armed now. YES, crime has gone up in our "fairly safe area" just like everywhere else. We are much better prepared now but still hope and pray to continue to be fortunate and not have to deal with invaders.

    Honestly, since being a member here, my SA has increased about 10 fold. Thanks to all of you and the posts you have shared.

    From the video appears to be a nice neighborhood of well kept houses. Again, not safe anywhere.

    The people who live across the street from me have left their garage door up on many occasions.

    They might as well post a sign in the front yard that says "PLEASE come rob me!"
