Mobile Phone Owner Captures Video of Home Burglary

If you want to protect your belongings, you should probably buy a mobile phone with a nice video camera and learn how to use it. Like this woman in Oakland, you may find yourself unexpectedly recording a theft in progress.

The story begins with an Oakland woman who was robbed and sexually assaulted by a man who broke into her apartment. The police investigation into this crime is made easier by a video shot with the victim's cell phone. The minutes-long video shows the assailant removing computers and other electronics from her home. Let's hope her willingness to come forward with this footage helps bring this man to justice.

She has some stones to try confronting and videotaping the burglar/rapist...albeit I don't understand why she would even bother trying to nicely ask the person to leave (including saying "im sorry"). I really wish she had a firearm and firearms training, as it may have prevented a crime. I hope she gets justice.
