The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office is warning residents of an increase in burglaries throughout the peninsula, south of Highway 92.

Deputies said the crimes are occurring in county cities and in unincorporated areas of the county, especially at residences left unsecured.

One common tactic burglars are using is knocking on the front door of a residence before trying to break in, according to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office is reminding residents to lock doors, windows and garages and be vigilant in reporting suspicious activity.

Nobody told her she couldn't say anything. Nobody was impinging on her freedom of speech. However, I also have the freedom to comment on uninformed, racist remarks and opinions. If you're going to post comments with your freedom, then you have to accept replies as well. That whole "freedom of speech" works both ways.

I just wish that people would look into situations a bit before jumping to conclusions.
