Crime watch

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2007 at 9:20 AM

A reminder that burglar alarms, even those with auxiliary power, are not sure protection against the hard-working criminal sector in LR.

I have a report of a home in Hillcrest (a president street) burglarized yesterday, this one for the second time in six weeks. Robbers turned off power and entered through a window while the home owner was at work. His alarm system, with backup power, went off. Police responded. They found no signs of forced entry and moved on. When the home owner got home about 9:30 p.m. yesterday, he found he'd been robbed.

Coincidentally, I'm immersed in another fine HBO series, "Five Days," a British crime thriller. It turns, in part, on the ubiquity of closed circuit TV cameras in England. A camera on my street captured a picture of the gun-toting robber recently arrested for multiple Hillcrest area crimes. Soon, they'll be everywhere. I hate it. But I'm beginning to hate the feeling of helplessness more.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
