(CNN)- Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Bill Keating knows what it's like to be tough on criminals. Before becoming a freshman Congressman, he served as Norfolk District Attorney for over ten years.
But at 3 a.m. ET Tuesday, he experienced what it's like to awake to the sound of your car's engine starting and then stolen from your driveway. A first-hand experience with crime that was provided by a pair of brothers with a criminal past, according to local police.
