I received a text from my husband about an attempted robbery that apparently happened yesterday morning. We all know the world isn’t as nice a place as it once was. This fact hits a lot closer to home when you find out the attempted robbery happened MY street!
It would seem someone attempted to steal a vehicle, crashed it into someone’s fence, attempted to carjack a couple people, tried to break into a home and was deterred when the homeowner pointed a gun at him.
What is this world coming to? The repeat offender was apprehended, is being held without bail, thanks to a felony probation violation. We chose where we live because it was a family-oriented street. Kids play outside. We are starting to trust our daughter to stay home for short time periods, by herself.
It makes one have to re-evaluation EVERYTHING!
While I won’t live in fear and we have backup plans in place, it still shouldn’t be like this. When the thief lives in the city we left five years ago, because of the crime, and chooses to prey on my neighbors (literally five houses down), it makes me angry.
You think all is well and life has a way of making sure you know you are living in a fantasy land. People need to accept accountability and if you currently don’t possess something, it does NOT give you the right to take it from someone else.
I’m hoping he’s a three-strike offender and the next 25 years to life will give him time to think about why he lost his freedom!
