Grammar?

"A resident told police they witnessed two people trying to break-in to a neighbor's vehicle. "

Resident is singular; they is plural. This is why I stopped buying the newspaper as well.

Grammar expert: Try researching the subject "singular use of 'they'" or go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they .
I think you quit buying the paper because you couldn't raise the money.

Why don't you comment on the story and not the grammar. I happen to be one of the victims that these 2 individuals took something from. Maybe if parents were able to disipline their children the way they should and taught a little respect for others property they might not have done what they did.

I agree the grammar is far from the point of this story.
We were also victims. They came into our garage(while we were home)and several valuable items were taken. Many Many Richland residents were victimized most just prior to Christmas.... Grammar important now????
Very Sad.

Does it really make a difference? There are people of all colors that know the difference between right and wrong! Obviously these kids don't give a crap and get a charge out of seeing what they could get.

I bet they made their parents proud. God help my kid if they did something like this. Right, wrong or against the law, my kids a** would get beat. I have been broken into before and it just pissed you off. They normally dont take enough to even claim on insurance. So then you are out everything. Hopefully if they ever grow up someone will victimize them like they did to others. Karma has a way of working wonders on people. Hopefully these garages were attached and they will get home invasion which carries a long sentence. If the garage is not attached it not as big of a crime and they will get off easy.
