I have to agree, Ace. That was one hell of a miss on that response.
You may disagree with what the officer said, but it would have made much more sense if you refuted it with some sort of fact or research. The officer didn't say his anecdote is always the truth. Just what he's seen. I appreciate that. And I agree. If someone just wants "stuff", they go to great pains to hit your home when there is as small of chance of being seen or caught as possible.
If they hit you when they know you are home, they are either crazy, drug altered, or a predator. And sometimes a mix of all of those. And that is dangerous as hell.
