You know Drew what is funny is that I caught shit today in another thread when I said that myself and other Americans felt safer here than in the US.
Here we have street justice or more like mob justice. If a low life thief/pick pocket/ ect ect get's caught they will literally be beaten to death. On our house we have a alarm system that trips on sensors in the frontyard and backyard. Here we do not have all of the equipment you guys have there so you take what you can get, the sensors are more or less made for indoor usage but I insisted they be put outside so as to trip and go off then. The guy installing said I would get a few false alarms which is true (about 1 every 2 weeks or so) but we put up with it because I know the way these crooks think. If they get in your house they may do something crazy once the alarm goes off because Indonesians panic quite easily when in a tight spot but if they are outside and they hear that alarm go they will run thier ass off to get out of there before they are caught and get the shit beat out of them. This mob justice is common I see on the local news incidents like that happen once every couple of weeks, some of these pricks survive the beating and some do not but the Mob is never prosecuted.
