Poor or non-existent parenting, bored kids with no "respect training" and single/working parent homes contribute to the petty crimes in our part of the state (among other things). Having camera security systems is a viable alternative to sitting on the front lawn all night waiting for punk crime. A multi camera system that records to a hard drive can be as cheap as $500 for the DYI group. Even with security cammeras, dogs and watchful neighbors we will still see these petty crimes periodically as kids "act up". The best defense is parents who parent well.

or you could get out and get involved in a kid's life. Pick a neighbor kid who's parents are together. Volunteer at a church youth group. Go work at the county jail. Go to Family Services and ask how you can help.
Get out from behind you camera and make a difference in a kid's life. Maybe that one kid then won't do a petty crime. Maybe that one kid will influence one other kid who won't do a petty crime.
