When his 74-year-old neighbor phoned for help one evening, saying someone was pounding on her front door, a Topeka, Kans., householder loaded his rifle and went to the rescue. The neighbor intervened and held the prowler at gunpoint after he found him kicking out a basement window. "He offered me all the money he had and begged and pleaded at me not to call the police," the man said. "I'm very protective of my neighbors."
