Speaking of crime, a friend of mine inherited some property from an aunt in rural Conway County, Arkansas. Their aunt's old single wide is still on the old homestead. It's certainly nothing fancy. And, the trailer is next door to her cousin who has a well deserved reputation as a crazy bad-ass. This has not stopped people from kicking in the front door twice and stealing some of the appliances.
My friend's solution? They found some magic voodoo signs in a book and drew them on the trailer with red spray paint. They also wrote, "I do Hoodoo, steal from me and eat live things," beside the glyphs. No one has touched the trailer since.
