Still don't. Have yet to be murdered, robbed, and/or have the basement converted into a meth lab by squatters.

What a stupid question for a poll. Is the paper trying to recruit thiefs to move to Minot?

Kevin Cramer invited President Obama to ND, and, luckily, President Obama declined.
Not only would have I locked my doors, I would have asked my bank to close while President Obama was anywhere near within 500 miles.
Just can't trust somebody who is willing to take as much as they possibly can, by any means possible.
President Obama does just that.

Sad state of affair, but what do you exspect, there are no moral values anymore! Crooks, thieves, and perverts everywhere even in the white house!! Kids today have no respect for anything or anyone! Very rarely do you see a young person hold a door for an elderly person, they would rather run over them!

Locked doors and cameras, and no I'm not paranoid I have a wacko for one of the adjoining landowners. Our SA told me to keep my doors locked while we are waiting for the wacko to have his breakdown. It's always scary when the wackos are focused on you.

Poorly worded poll. "only at night" or "only when I leave"? so if I only do at night AND when I leave I can't answer correctly.

muleskinner you hit the nail right on the head with that one!! I was going to say when Obama is asked to visit your state you need to take all extra precautions ......he loves other peoples money!!

Wow. Surprised by the results. My memories of ND were ones of people almost never locking their doors. I've slept in several churches during long trips from the Twin Cities back to Minot because of this phenomenon.

"Now Federal agencies have been asked to help tired,overstrapped police depts."
"Overstrapped"? In the context I'm thinking, such a word suggests that the local police are armed to the teeth more than is necessary.

You can buy 45 acres of good real estate in California, along the California coastline, for approximately 1.8 million dollars or about 40,000 dollars per acre.
In Minot, 308 acres of land now sells for 74 million dollars and is at a price of 240,000 dollars per acre.
You can sell land here and buy in California and bank some cash.

"Having a number of incidents relatively close to where I live, I am taking more time to analize my surroundings out of respect for the security of my spouse,friends & neighbors"
Situational awareness is your friend, but you probably already know that.
Yeah, right. Nothing in North Dakota is "relatively close" to where you live.

Gee, I wonder where they learned that from . . .
Silly Americans. Think you can lock yourself in too be safe.

Bob, to those who suffer from the "obsessive-compulsive disorder" affliction, the correct arrangement of those letters is "CDO."
We have to keep reminding everyone...
