(Newser) – Two teenage burglars turned themselves into police when they discovered the CDs they stole were filled with child pornography, reports Fox 40 of Sacramento. Police let them go and instead arrested the guy who owned the discs. What's weird is that Kraig Stockard had even called police to report the theft. "I'm kind of surprised that he wanted to draw attention to himself, knowing what was taken," said a deputy. Police raided Stockard's home and confiscated his computers, notes the Huffington Post.

Burglary can happen anytime because criminals are to be found everywhere right? So what's the big deal with this? Of course, basically it's all about your safety!! What if you witness personally burglars breaking into your house and practically you would get hysterical and with that I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have an ample amount of time to call help and most impossibly would be to call 911 right? So with this situation, I came to a thought of looking for some app which would help me in times of emergencies like this and fortunately I found Safetrec and Safekidzone at Google Play which happens to be available at all app stores. Just a click would save me you from harm, trust me. Simply click this links to know more. http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home and www.safetrec.com

Hey did these kids discover some sort of 'Get out of jail free' trick? If I break into a bank & discover the bank manager has kiddie porn in his desk, can I get away with breaking into the bank like these guys did? lol ("Two wrongs make a right, Lisa" : h t t p : / / bit.ly/ouSmBy)
