This story happened in Pasadena, and it says a lot about how great it is to have neighbors who really care about you.  The Houston Chronicle reports that some people in a Pasadena mobile home park caught four men breaking into a neighbor's home, so they went after them with baseball bats.

Pasadena Police say one of the people living in the trailer managed to get outside and alert their relatives who live next door.

The relatives attacked the thieves with baseball bats, and it got ugly, for the burglars.

Two were beaten so severely they were Life-Flighted to a Houston hospital with serious head injuries.  The other two are in jail facing burglary charges.

These men learned that crime does not pay, and it can be very painful when people take exception to being victimized.
