My parents got robbed last night

My parents got robbed last night at gun point while I was work, everything has been stolen

My entire DVD collection
My sealed Blu-Ray player
My sealed HD-DVD Player
My brand new 32 inch TV I just brought yesterday
My computer (I am at a friend's house now)

They also stole my Mom's jewerly, clothes, and possesions, same with my father too

At least my parents are okay but damn, it sucks

Yeah, probably for their wives or something, I have no idea because my parents were in the sunroom at gun point while the other 2 was robbing everything so they don't know who carried out the TV

So it was a crew of at least 3 people. That's a real home invasion. They're lucky they came out of it ok.

Obviously Deftones "were" was a typographical.

I hope you or your parents were covered by insurance. If you have a list fo the DVDs mayeb it is worth contacting local stores just in case the gang are dumb enough to try to sell them nearby.

Someone I once worked with was robbed and a brand new tv was part of the haul. They also took the receipt and tried to take the set back to the shop and ask for a refund. The guy I worked with had told the shop (just in case) and, under pretext of checking something out back, the shopkeeper electronicaly locked the doors and called the police.

I don't know whether the whole gang was caught as a result but it was a good result because they had been breaking into the back of houses using a 4x4 vehicle to pull off the patio doors.

This youngish colleague was at the family home that weekend, his girlfriend may have been there too (I forget) but the parents were away. On waking and going down for breakfast they realised what had happened but had slept through the entire robbery!

If you have a Costco in the area check them out, they had the old packaging a couple of weeks ago.

We should make a vendetta to find and kill them!!! Or at the very least, get his stuff back. I dont know how far 3 guys can get with stolen Blu-Ray, HDDVD, Hundreds of DVD's and a TV. Someone has to notice.

Robbers' good luck, yeah we do have insurance thankfully
