Most people will agree that the world in which we live today, is a lot different from what it was when our grandparents were children. Statistics show that a burglary occurs every 14 seconds. In many societies people are separated into distinct classes, depending on their positions in life, the cars they drive and how much money they earn. This is one of the main reasons why crimes are so widespread in certain parts of the world. Those that don’t have, take by any means necessary, from those who do.

Murder, muggings, rapes, burglaries, can be seen plastered all over the daily newspapers. No one is spared from these crimes, and all we can do is to try and protect ourselves, and the ones we love as best as we can.
