On April 5th, my husband and i were woken up by 3 men who had kicked in our front door.. Two had guns and 1 had a taser. They tazed my husband twice in their effort to find any money and proceeded to tie us up.. After a mere 8 minutes.. it was over and we were left tied up on the floor.. In the end.. they took nothing but our sense of feeling safe in our home..

What is a "high risk" lifestyle that would lend one to have their door kicked in at 2:30 in the morning?

Don't know the local ordinances on small arms but you and your husband may want to purchase a couple go to the loacl fireams clubs and learn to use them then sleep with then under your pillows or within hands reach.
Also an alarm system on the resdence including ground survailence
For ongoing cost a mastif, doberman or another of mans best friends trained to recognize threats and warn the household may be of some assistance

the previous tenant was into alot of bad things.. we, my husband and i believe that they were looking for him.. Unfortunately for us.. we have 2 dogs, which they attempted to tase also, plus security system. It goes to show you, if someone wants in your home they will get in regardless. Sad thing is, they took absolutely nothing!!!

Locks are for honest people and security systems are....well I will spare you that rant.Whoever did it will push their luck until they are caught or shot.

Since the linked article specifically mentions targeting those with a "high risk lifestyle" I figured there might be something to support that.

Otherwise it would just be sloppy reporting trying to put peoples minds a ease or get them thinking "I don't have a high risk lifestyle so it isn't my problem" when the reality is that it can happen to anyone anywhere at anytime.

I think the police report was making a sweeping generalization of the people in the area.
By the way welcome to ATS OP

Wow...... my sympathies to you and yours.


Thank you for posting this as it serves to remind everyone how quickly things can change and how it can be something completely unprovoked or considered.

So glad to hear you all are okay! That which does not kill us, makes us stronger. May you and your husband be stronger now.

Hope the police catch these young men very soon because they are only in their 20's and apparently just starting a very selfish, chicken-chit, evil career of taking that which they are too lazy to earn on their own. Someone needs to shoot them next time it happens.... that'll make them think a bit.

Sad thing is, we both are quiet people, we go to work and come home.. We dont live a high risk type of lifestyle?

They probably scoped you out ahead of time and deemed you "low risk"to any resistance because of your quiet lifestyle.Not trying to scare you but people like this usually plan ahead.I can almost guarantee you they won't come back.
ETA-Just read your above post the previous residents were probably dealers their not gonna bother you anymore.

I'm sorry to hear, but glad to hear your husband, yourself and your pups were unharmed. Makes me sick that people are doing that in a country like this.

And hopefully those guys get theirs. Non contributing fu*ks

Many people on this site prefer to maintain their anonymity.
Maybe she doesn't mind, but it just seems odd to me that you are the one who has now shared her address and the occupation of her and her husband.
Seems to me, that should be something that she should share if she wanted to.

Sadly this is becoming more common. It happened to a family not far from where I live.At 6am the family was getting ready for the day when a drugged up idiot forced his way into their home and shot the husband when he tried to stop him. Fortunately the teen girls were able to call the cops and he was caught. Turns out he was freshly released from prision and was drugging it up, he had robbed a drug dealer and was trying to hide from him. They just sentenced him to 23 years in prision.
I keep a suprise for jackwaggons like him next to the bed. They will have a hard time tasing my dogs. With the bedroom on the second floor, by the time they get in they will be facing a locked and loaded pissed off home owner if the dogs don't get them first.
I hope that this doesn't happen to you again. You might want to look into some deadbolts for your door.

We have a little gun, bear spray, pitbull and a security system.. unfortunately, when things happen that fast.. access to them wasnt possible.. Other than feeling safe in our home, we are slowly healing.. If someone wants in your home for whatever reason.. they will regardless.. Hope u dont ever have to experience that in your home
