Stop Using Pet Doors! Here's why!

APRIL 9--A Florida woman who used a live Internet video feed to monitor the interior of her home was shocked yesterday when she saw two men burglarizing her residence in real time. Jeanne Thomas, 43, was seated at her office desk when two strangers appeared in her living room (the intruders got into Thomas's Boynton Beach house through a doggie door at the rear of the home, according to the probable cause affidavit). Thomas, who set up the live video stream after her home was burglarized last October, immediately called 911 to report the burglary. Cops raced to her home and arrested the two men inside the house: Curtis Williams, 20, and Steven Morales, 19. Two other suspects--Scott George and Jonathan Cruz, both 20--were nabbed at a nearby residence and charged with helping plan the burglary. The amazing surveillance video from inside Thomas's house was uploaded to YouTube by the Boynton Beach Police Department and can be seen here.

What a story!

I can't remember: did the principal in the movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" get into the house through the dog door, too?

I don't remember. He was kind of big for the normal doggie door but the dog was pretty big too! This was before he got busted for kiddie porn I believe.
