While no one should have to live in fear. home invasion / theft is as common as going to the store.
I wont condone guns, because i live in australia we arent allowed to have them, But if i had one, and someone was in my home, Yes i would shoot
Someone once told me, Shoot them in the head, then shoot into the roof, and when asked by police.. you shot the roof in warning, and they kept coming
so you shot them.
Ultimately tho, its really a case of home security, and this poor lady simply didnt employ a safety practice.. Tho im sure if these two guys really
wanted in, they would of found some way to kick down the door if they could.
People need security screens on their doors, and particularly in america, they need strong deadbolted doors with a camera system so they can clearly
see who is at the door, and as an added bonus.. have a Instant police alarm system right beside the door so they can press it straight away if
Of course we could be overkill and secure the whole home, but how much do we want to spend, and how much do we want to live in fear.
I have been a victim of break ins a couple of times. some while asleep, some while away from the house. never any actual altercations tho. but it
leaves you feeling unsafe. so now i ensure the house is fully locked up, all windows closed, and that our neighbours know.
People are pretty creative when it comes to thefts though. Kids in particular lately are a common offender. they will stake out your street
*innocently* playing, but knowing when you are or arent there...
in one instance, we was sitting in the lounge. this particularly young kid who i had been keeping eye on anyway *lives around the corner* is walking
down the street.. stops.. comes up to door.
"excuse me, umm i was wondering if you could give me a lift home" where do you live i asked.... "err i dunno i forgot" well then how am i suppose
to give you a lift.. dont be stupid.. go away.
in a poor attempt to get us away from the house so his *friends* can sneak in and take stuff....
