There are going to be more shootings in the Capitol Heights area, if these house burglaries continue. Our home at 7318 Joplin Street, Capitol heights was broken into recently. This was the first experience we encountered of this nature, but we have found out that virtually every house on our street and the next has experienced the same thing. This has forced us to purchase guns in our home and we will rightly defend our property rather than live in fear of intruders who disrespect our property. We pay thousands of dollars a year in property taxes yet receive poor support for the amount of money we pay. Any further attempts at burglarizing our home will be met with deadly force, so help me God!!! We are fed up with the criminal elements in our neighborhoods. Initially 12 years ago when we first arrived in Capitol Heights are vehicles were stolen on several occasions. Now its our home. This is the last straw, Criminals beware!!!!!
