  1. We need to form more neighborhood watch. These bandits have their eyes and ears open . They are watching our every move. We should have each other telephone numbers to alert one another of any stranger in the neighborhood. Cut down trees, so that people passing can see you. Wear minimal jewelry. Do not go to the bank alone.
