Deterrence: Hang out on front lawn

I am writing in response to the letter "City police let phone ring" (July 5). I can totally relate to the writer's situation and can only offer this suggestion: Buy a couple of plastic chairs and sit out front. I do this every day when I get home from work and I sit out front on the weekends.

I realize this looks tacky, but I have had multiple car break-ins in the year that I have lived here. I think if more people became tacky like me there would be fewer break-ins.
