This makes you wonder if alarms are really worth it.

What a ridiculous comment. The police cannot be everywhere. Your tune may change once you are in a situation requiring their assistance. I have found the WCSD to be extremely helpful.

Alarms are good. An alarm plus surveillance cameras - better.
