Burglary lessons learned
Here's a TV news account of how a mother and daughter handled discovering a burglar in their house in the process of making off with their stuff. Remember why this is a burglary, not a home invasion: the perp intended to get in and out without being discovered or confronted. However, the mother came home before he could make his escape (the daughter was asleep upstairs and undisturbed by the burglar). There are some things they did right, but some other things they did definitely wrong which left them at the whim of the police and district attorney as to whether they would be charged with the crimes they committed out of ignorance and foolishness.
