This was just across the river from me:
It looks like this may have stopped a local crime wave of armed robberies in the area. More inf here.
In contrast, when this couple was burglarized, there was nothing they could have done to stop it:
A 28-year-old man is facing burglary charges after police say he stole items from the home of an elderly couple who had recently passed away.
Jason Williams, of Newport, Minn., is accused of stealing jewelry, a box of photo lockets of WWI-era pictures and two watches with the couple’s initials engraved in them on New Year’s Eve. Police say the estimated value of the jewelry is more than $1,000.
Note: He was caught despite the best efforts of the residents to ignore him!
