Re: erm isn't this what law enforcement is for?

But how would they know you were a "hard target" a "house to avoid" until they actually targeted your house?

If we assume some random miscreant, than why would they know anything about you (or indeed the owner of whatever house they were breaking into)?

If we say the miscreant did (in whatever magical way) know you were a hard target, what's to say that although it may discourage some felons, others might be attracted to having a crack at the "hard target" as more of a challenge?
