    About the only thing you can tell from this sort of thing is that first, Bad Guys are generally becoming more brazen; and, too many people don't have either situational awareness or think fast enough to react with adequate speed.

    It does point out that "control your environment" mandates that you always keep yourself aware of the world around you--which is the "why" of Condition Yellow.

    When I go out to check for mail, there's a .357 magnum in my pocket. Citizens are becoming more brazen, too.

    The fact that these crooks have not had an OS moment where they contemplate Darwin's theory is very sad. I have had one home invasion and that guy definately had an OS moment! He was only a few ounces of trigger pull of getting a .44 between the eyes. The pants he was wearing prevented a smelly cleanup of my carpet!

    From what I see, the Bad Guys have pretty much changed over from "take the money & run" to "NO Breathing Witness Left Behind."

    Probably an 'unintended consequence' of the 3-strikes law..."If I get caught, I'm doin' life...so i ain't gettin' caught, no matter who I gotta take down. . ."
