So how do you protect yourself and your family from theft?
Easy. Own crap.
Thieves don't rob hobos and why you might ask? They don't have anything worth taking. Have you ever heard of a shoplifting case at a yard sale? Should you find yourself saddled with an expensive SUV or sports car, an oversized T.V. and home, as well as a wallet groaning with cash, you might want to purchase Doc's Foolproof Anti-Theft advice.
Get rid of it all, rent an attic apartment and get your entertainment from the library. I drive a piece of shit and leave the keys in it. No one ever steals it. Also plant lots of roses and raspberries around your windows and doors. It is nature's barbed wire and you get flowers and fruit too.
