Reasons for attack

Knowing the motivations of the criminally-minded people who may attack you personally is important in preparing your defenses for such an attack.

There are people who want to break into a home, company or other building in order to steal or damage property. There are also some who simply want to damage property externally. This could also include people who would break into a web site to do some mischief.

The reason people do that are:

Personal gain

A person may break into a building in order to steal some property for his or her personal gain. Sometimes the person will steal something that is left out in view.

Revenge against someone

Sometimes a person will want to get revenge on another person. A way to do that could be by damaging or stealing property as an effort to hurt or harm another person emotionally or financially.

Promote a cause

There are people who want to promote a political or religious belief, or to advance some cause, who think a way to do that is to damage property owned by an opposing organization or individual. Sometimes they will steal to both harm others and to gain money for their cause.

Mindless thrills

There are people--often in their teens--who will damage or steal property for some mindless thrill.

Type of property harm
