  4. C Resident says:

    I wish they would stop making people so fearful by calling these incidents random home invasions. When these are homes of known drug dealers being invaded by other dealers or users. And in most cases the victim knows who it was but doesnt say. I dont know why they bother reporting it to police in those cases. The sad and fearful thing is that eventually there will be an innocent victim caught in the crossfire.
