I think we need to bring back neighborhood watches. This is ridicules what is happening to our small little city. Someone ransacked my car a few weeks ago, it was unlocked but there was nothing in it to steal.

I agree! I'm shocked at the amount of break ins & attempted break ins that I keep reading about in Clawson.
