At least this pirate didn't come with prybars to attack the front door with prying tools as they did on my building -Fields Corner- a few months ago. It happened three times within a week. On the last occasion, they badly damaged the door. I heard that it also happened to other buildings nearby on the same week. We reported to the police and provided video footage. Dorchester police response? Yawn. We made a dozen fliers with pictures and link to the YouTube video of their exploit and posted them street light posts. It seems to have work; they didn't return after that.

Good, good. Let the Libertarianism flow through you.

Why pay for that?

That awareness that you're being watched is the reason you get to see yourself on the security camera at the store. I'm surprised you don't see more monitors in vestibules given the affordability of the equipment.

Seems like this would be a good application for a robot snake. Freak her out, watch her run.
