Neighbors, look out for each other. Lock and keep your cars off the streets, if possible. When you leave your house, look for people parked and sitting in cars, watching. Call the police for people coming to the door asking for a name who doesn't live there. Light up your house and have a loud radio on. Remember, it's not just happening in Dearborn.

The radio and lights work pretty well. To a crook, it's all about risk. Which one should I rob? The house with lights and radio on, or the dark one with newspapers scattered on the porch? A no brainer, even for a crook. My parents home in Dearborn Hts was protected this way , no issues for almost two years while vacant. The new owner put up No Tresspassing signs, tossed the radio, turned out the lights to save power, and within two weeks, the appliances were gone, the garage ransacked , etc. Coincidence??? Look at it this way. Leaving the lights and radio on will at least give the crook some entertainment and visibility, and you a target when you catch him in your sights with your registered Colt, Smith&Wesson, Remingon, Glock, Savage, Ruger, Klinger, Webley, or Whammo. Come to think of it, perhaps that is why the crooks stayed away from my parents house, since all the neighbors , as Tom suggests, were looking out for me, armed with the weapons mentioned. There is a reason crooks are moving out to Dearborn to do robbing. Too many Detroiters now have handguns, and it is too dangerous to rob Detroiters anymore. Detroit is a neighbor with 'issues'. We need to support each other, and our Dearborn Police, who are pros for sure, but no pro can save you in the first minute of a confrontation that turns ugly. You need to help yourself, and a gun is a universal equalizer, ask any crook. Most of them have one, even if they break the law by doing so.
