I don't think it was random either, scary nonetheless. I'm glad to hear that no one was hurt. The parents should think about all the people who may know they have a safe.

Be observant and live your life. You cannot let the people that make poor choices win by making you live your life in fear. Unfortunately this happens everywhere. Let the good out weigh the bad and we win!

it's a darn shame to say it but the people involved are upstanding and didnt deserve what resulted

What's ridiculous is that people still leave their doors unlocked in Framingham. I've never thought of any of the neighborhoods in this town as particularly safe from crime. If you leave your doors unlocked for the world to come in, then you're also partly responsible for what happens.
