Two Saturdays ago, Mum left to the UK and while we was not home our house was broken into.
This was such a shocking and terrifying experience. We have an alarm system which picked them up .It seems criminals are getting very clever and have new methods of breaking in.Its such an invasion of your privacy knowing someone has touched all your stuff and gone through your personal belongings.
From what it seems these robbers were looking for jewellery and money, we are not sure what was taken and will only know when mum returns.
Crime has become rife in all areas doesnt matter if you live in posh area or not.It angers me that people think its ok to steal . We work so hard to buy what we want only for it to be taken by someone who doesnt know the meaning of that item. Most of our possessions have a story behind them , a history and a monetary value cannot be placed on it.
So to protect ourselves , our loved one and our possessions we now have to live like prisoners. Have guard dogs and hitech security systems.Life has become such that we are constantly looking over our shoulders and constantly looking doors. At times I feel like a prison warden constantly checking and locking.
We really need to relook at our goverments crime and punishment protocol. The goverment needs to find ways to punish these criminals.In some parts of the world very harsh punishments are administered to thiefs thus preventing crime from happening.
I dont want to live like a prisoner in my own home and be afraid to go out. Hopefully someday the crime decreases and people will live in peace, harmony and not be paranoid.
