Detention center or domicile?

Bars, bars, bars, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

It is quite common to see bars on basement windows. This I can understand. But what is up with bars over every single visible window. I realize I am judging. I don’t like to judge. But seriously, it looks awful. And worst of all, it makes the neighborhood look awful. Just like the bullet proof glass at our bodegas makes it look like we live in some kind of war zone. So I ask you: is this necessary? What about a simple alarm system or dog? I’m telling you, these pretzels are making me thirsty!
