KEY PENINSULA: Only now they’re locking doors?

I was somewhat confused by a statement attributed to Key Peninsula residents after a deadly shootout in their neighborhood.

According to the article (TNT, 10-9), “Residents said they were nervous and some were taking the unprecedented step of locking their doors.” One resident said that there is lots of “illicit activity in the area” but mostly “burglaries and vandalism.”

These people live in the woods, and the sheriff’s deputies call the area “The Wild West”? And locking your doors is unprecedented?

    i noticed that statement in the article too and was surprised. i would almost be more likely to keep things locked (at least) and have an alarm system if i lived out there.

    God bless America and help us keep our country strong!

    ” And locking your doors is unprecedented?”… yep… until recently… and your surprise and dismay says more about YOU than this letter does about the writer.
