This is a horrifying must read – “Craigslist diamond ad leads to deadly home invasion, police say” http://ht.ly/1IFgC #Craigslist #murder
What is really standing in the way from this happening again and again? There’s nothing about Craigslist that would reduce the likelihood of a recurrence. In fact, all of the publicity surrounding this terrible event might put the idea in some peoples’ heads. The only way to prevent this from happening is to have the exchange of goods to occur in a highly-visible public and/or “safe” location (i.e., police station parking lot).
