Is there any safe place? What goes through someone's head when they decide to steal or violate another human being? I just don't get it...not that I want to. Can life really be so bad that you choose to take from others? What happened to getting a job and earning what you have?

@ Patty. I totally agree. I posted a simliar comment a short while ago. I used to feel incredibly safe in my Aberdeen neighborhood. That feeling has been stripped from me. All of these robberies, thefts, intrusions, etc., need to stop. The local authorities need to come up with a plan to subvert these violations.

We moved here 3 years ago and it seemed OK. Recently, it seems, the crime has become drastically worse. I had my purse stolen 2 weeks ago and feel completely violated. I don't get it. I would never hurt someone like that. How can people do this to each other?
