Tulsa is seeming more violent. Alarm systems, insurance, and dogs seem to be some deterrent but in retrospect who has their system on like that when they are home? Yesterday evening some strange man came up the side of the back of my house and while my dog kept him at bay, he knocked on the window to get my attention. I came out the back door and he asked for money but I know he was probably casing my home. I had two vehicles in my driveway. My question is why did he think to approach my back door and not knock on my front door? So at this point I am pretty aware I have an unsavory character watching my home. Concealed carry is a good idea but I do believe Tulsa has become more violent and wouldbe burglars don't care who gets hurt in the process. I have 5 children in my home. So while my husband and I are on high alert it makes me wonder if during the time that I am gone, if perhaps a surveilence camera, my dogs (which are large dogs), an alarm system, and insurance are the only things that protect me. It definitely makes you wonder what the world is coming to now. And yes I have preventative measures with deadbolts, kickstops on the door, the doors locked even while we are home, windows nailed shut (sadly breaking a window to get out in case of fire is pretty much the only option we would have other than going out the door), and thankfully watchful neighbors; however I still find myself paranoid of the possibility of not being safe in my home.

If you really want to scare thieves away, shoot a couple of them! Is it just me or is Tulsa getting more violent? I'd really like to hear what you all have to say.

That big "security light" over their garage isnt doing much good when they are being burglarized in broad daylight. Most break-ins are between 10am and 3pm anyway. Save some electricity (and do your neighbors a favor) and replace it with something more sedate.
