You really can't booby trap your home.My husband knew someone who did
and the thief was injured ,sued and now owns the house he broke into.
Yeah I thought about rigging a shotgun at the backdoor so if they kicked it in it would blow them away. I'm tired of this BS. In the 1800's if someone was stealing your livestock it was legal to shoot them. If someone invades my house I should have every right to blow them away. I can only do so if my life is in danger. I'd rather not take any chances with the law since it's open to interpretation.

Put an alarm, you can get one with multiple sensors for like 200$
Any suggestions on what to look for?

Anything that is extremely LOUD. Floodlights with sensors might keep the thugs from creeping around at night.
You might want to look into an alarm system. They will install the system sometimes free of charge or very reasonable prices.
They make their money from the monthly monitoring charge.
Also your grandma could have a panic thingymajig to wear around her neck.
If you can't move make a stand and protect your family and property.
Good luck!

Sadly as the desparity between the haves and have nots grow you situation will only get worse..... I agree with the first poster move while it is still a choice as you may just find yourself being forced to move or worse ending up on the wrong side of the law

a reply to: schuylerI've lived in the area for 40 years I can't afford to pick up and leave.

What about a better neighborhood? I know moving and all that is a big hassle but jeez, you can't live like that. It's lousy you have to feel that way.

Many have posted alarm systems, floodlights on sensors and video survaliance. These are great ideas and I hope you get them. I recommend starting a neighborhood watch and even if you don't have a dog, put up 'beware of dog signs'.
Having the neighborhood watch signs up might help keep people 'up to no good' away.
I'd like to add that working together with the neighbors on this problem and starting the neighborhood watch would be good because then if there are a lot of cameras up at peoples homes throughout the neighborhood, everyone will feel better about living there.
Peace and good will to you.

If someone invades my house I should have every right to blow them away.

Do this: go to Les Gold's pawn and get a knife that doesn't match any of your own. Put it away where nobody will ever see it, ever. If something bad goes down, get it, put it in a hand and throw the knife in the direction of the perp's fall. Done deal. Don't even mention the knife to any family member or loved one. That's what the shooting instructor for my pistol permit said to do...

Yeah I can't do something like that. As much as I despise the crooks I'm not messing with the law.

Why deal with this crap. Really, why?

They climbed under his car and cut his catalytic converter off with a torch.

This stands out the most, mainly because it is damn true. They don't even realize it, but using a torch AKA welding is an employable skill. A very lucrative skill at that, but no, let's go steal #.

I'm 100% in belief it's is a culture and taught mentality. I don't know how to break that, it's no different than breaking an ingrained religion at that point. It almost can be related to radical islam when the ones you love and trust are lost on a regular basis, if no one taught you change you will tow the line.

If they are entering your home your life is in danger. Of course the police aren't going to just say plain as day "yep shoot 'em".

As far as security? Get yourself a nice shelter adopted German Shepherd. No one will mess with a big-ass barking German Shepherd

Aside from the advice already mentioned, I do recall a story about someone leaving a realistic mannequin on the front porch at night, which supposedly kept people at bay. It might not work down there, but in general, people tend to not do something if they think someone is watching.

Personally, I'd also be the guy that instead of a typical alarm would have an alarm that sounds like a chamber being loaded or someone being murdered.

In reality, it might be hard, but you probably should just move. Once you're 10-11 miles away from the city it at least get's somewhat better. Just keep in mind that the blight is still spreading, rumor mill has it that places like Royal Oak and Madison Heights are starting to see more of that.

Yep - desperate people will do desperate things. I am certain that were you in the same situation (physical, emotional) you would do the same.

Get a big dog.

Good Lord please don't do that! What if it turns out to be a couple of kids skipping school?

Just get yourself one of these...

... problem solved.
