TEN STEPS TO BREAK INTO A HOUSE
“When we think of a burglar, we think of a stereotypical ski-masked man dressed head to toe in black, crouched down, creeping in the dead of night, carrying a professional break-in artist's ideal toolkit. As common a culprit, however, is the average-looking person dressed in average street clothes on your average workday, entering via an unlocked door or a brick-induced hole in a glass door.”
All the points mentioned below are discussed in much more detail on the mentioned website; although could be seen as from the burglar's point of view. Below I only gave one thought after each dot:
ENTRY THROUGH WALLS AND CEILINGS
As unlikely as you may think this to be there are several thousand burglaries each year where entry into a dwelling has been gained by breaking through a wall or coming down through a ceiling or loft hatch. The following information covers the most common occurrences.
The following are discussed in detail on the mentioned site, with suggestions as to what can be done to prevent being compromised:
“Crystal meth (tik) is short for crystal methamphetamine. It is just one form of the drug methamphetamine.
These drug effects generally last from six to eight hours, but can last up to twenty-four hours. The first experience might involve some pleasure, but from the start, methamphetamine begins to destroy the user's life.
What is Methamphetamine?
Methamphetamine is an illegal drug in the same class as cocaine and other powerful street drugs. It has many nicknames – meth, crank, chalk or speed being the most common.
Crystal meth is used by individuals of all ages, but is most commonly used as a ‘club drug’, taken while partying in night clubs or at rave parties. Its most common street names are ice or glass.
It is a dangerous and potent chemical and, as with all drugs, a poison that first acts as a stimulant but then begins to systematically destroy the body. Thus it is associated with serious health conditions, including memory loss, aggression, psychotic behaviour and potential heart and brain damage.
Highly addictive, meth burns up the body's resources, creating a devastating dependence that can only be relieved by taking more of the drug.
Crystal meth's effect is highly concentrated, and many users report getting hooked (addicted) from the first time they use it. ‘I tried it once and BOOM! I was addicted’, said one meth addict who lost his family, friends, his profession as a musician and ended up homeless. Consequently, it is one of the hardest drug addictions to treat and many die in its grip.
‘I started using crystal meth when I was a senior in high school. Before my first semester of college was up, meth became such a big problem that I had to drop out. I looked like I had chicken pox, from hours of staring at myself in the mirror and picking at myself. I spent all my time either doing meth, or trying to get it.’ – Anne Marie

The seminar empowers youth and adults with the facts about drugs so they can make an informed decision to say no, and assist others make the same decision.
This is a non-profit public service offered free of charge — the only requirement is you bring your desire to see a drug free society and willingness to do something to make it a reality.”
