In that case take photos of the people taking photos, and if there happens to be a spate of new burglaries , hand the photos of those people over to the police.
The neighbourhood, along with crime watch and security, did ‘surveil’ these activities. It is better controlled, but it is not under control. When you open our local newspapers, it is riddled with crime.

It is only natural for Hijackings to increase as the sophistication of the Anti-Theft devices increase.
Its easier to drive away in a car that you don't own if you can get your hands on the keys compared to the "old school" break lock or window followed by a hot-wire.

I've noticed a trend of stock photos used in articles regarding crimes to never feature non-whites. Is this MyBB treading lightly or a mere coincidence?

Can we expect to see stock photos more representative of the country's demographics?
Its hilarious!

MyBB only hire white actors for their photo shoots.

Why does someone always have to play the race card? Jirre. I did not even notice the race on the stock picture because it is immaterial. Crime knows no colour. Seriously dude, built a bridge and get over it.

I also mentioned it and I didn't play a card. I observed it as well, and laughed at the stock photo of the white hijacker. I'm not bothered by it, it caused me some amusement. I'm going to drink beer after work without thinking about this again. Tsek.

You may be right cozinsky, but I dare you to find a crime-related article on Mybb not featuring a white criminal.

Ironically, the place where the hijacking in the stock photos is set is in one of the safest towns in the country.

Good idea but what if the criminals are undocumented "economic refugees"?
