As a former property crimrs detective, I've never heard of a burglar who was NOT a serial burglar. They don't just commit one.

The media started their love affair with all this "serial" bullshit after reference to the relatively rare serial murderer.

By definition, property crimes felons are invariably involved in a series of crimes. To a lesser extent, sames goes for robberies and sexual assaults between strangers.

Please keep in mind that this is an open blog
that can and is read by people other than Chicago Police Officers.
