    Too vague to really tell what happened.

    Anytime hour out and about during the wee hours of the morning, your chances of running into trouble are greatly enhanced. You are alone, there are not many witnesses, they can wait in ambush.

    ^^^I agree^^^^^^^^^


    It seems common sense to be alert when vulnerable, but ,people get complacent, hes just arriving home after a night at work, all he's thinking about is sleep, and bam, he's caught off-guard,
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Somebody stole the ignition key out of the riding mower a few weeks ago; I live on two acres in a semi-rural area with a low crime rate. I considered it a cheap reminder that the appearance of security is not to be trusted, ANYwhere. The only reason I haven't been the victim of a violent crime is because it hasn't happened yet.

    I too sometimes get off work between the hours of midnight and 4 am. I usually scan around me before exiting the vehicle. Once outside of the vehicle I am still scanning. Hopefully the wife left the perimeter lights on, but even if she did, the head is on a swivel. Can never be too cautious.
