THUNDER BAY – Crimebeat – Crime statistics do not tell the full story. The impact on people victimized by crime impact the families, and the community. Take the cold statistic of break and enters. Over the past several weeks, a spree of break-ins to local businesses has impacted several local businesses across the city. The cost of replacing broken glass impacts those local companies.

A break and enter to a home is a violation of the secure feeling a family or individual wants in their home.

This morning, on Kijiji, a person here in Thunder Bay has posted an ‘ad’ expressing the frustration and impact that a break-in has made on their family.

“Just want to thank the low lifes who broke into my house Oct 9 @ 10 am. Thank you for theiving my 5 year olds tablet, my 3 year olds ipod and all the other fabulous electronics. Worthless tools. Thanks for breaking my kids hearts and devasting them both. 20gb of photos and video’s of our family, hope you enjoy them, because I know we will not. 3 years of my son filming his little brother growing up from the day he was born”.

“Gone. Thank you for making us feel uneasy and unsafe in OUR home. Hope you read this and find you have a conscience. Your pathetic for robbing little children. Maybe karma will work for once. I’m glad I had to explain to my children that I’m sorry I can not afford to replace them.
‘But daddy, why would somebody take my tablet, they know it’s not their’s?’, Because some people are just f$$$ing losers.”

“Hope you get caught with the fingerprints you left. :)”
