Seems to me another good idea that is no longer practiced.
I saw on the news last night, where two burglars broke into a home around mid-day. They took a computer, some jewelry, and $16,000 in cash. In the process of rummaging through the the house they found a 7 year old and 12 year old hiding in a closet. They held the children at gun point while they finish ransacking the house. Thankfully the children were not hurt..
Now, what is someone doing with $16,000 lying about not even locked up and, more importantly, why were those children home alone?
