I had my house burglarized twice in 6 weeks. I had to move out of my house and live somewhere else. For a couple years, I was very paranoid, and a little racist, since the burglars were a different color than me.
Of course, a few weeks after moving, I had a 'friend' who is the same color as me, get into my storage unit and steal a truck load of my stuff. (Also stabbed holes in some of my paintings for some reason). I actually caught him and he went to jail for a while. That experience proved to me that burglary isn't a racial thing, it's an asshole thing. But it made me even more paranoid. These three burglaries (all in a 3 month period) have had a profound impact on my ability to trust people....and changed my opinion of human behavior in general.
For the thieves posting here, return the shit you stole. Whatever money you think you're saving by taking someone else's things, the cost to your self-respect is exponentially higher.
