You believe this despite the vast majority of burglars being merely opportunistic thieves taking full advantage of the average home owner's poor
I'd agree that the kind of person who'd enter a home forcibly and without concern for being heard doing so, knowing there were people inside, doesn't
deserve consideration of their own personal circumstances, but to treat that kind of home invader the same as the one who has taken advantage of an
open window in what they thought was an empty home, only to have the occupiers return mid-burglary, makes you sound like a vengeful, bloodthirsty
The woman in the OP's story could have avoided her traumatic experience by having purchased a reasonable quality front door monitoring device, and
having a pre-arranged system with neighbours whereby if any resident is alone when they get strangers at the door, they can set off an alarm and all
neighbours would go out to their front porch to see what was going on. On the vast majority of occasions, anyone up to no good would be off and away,
while making a mental note not to try robbing in that neighbourhood again, and all without a shot being fired, which, I accept, might not be as
exciting as getting out your trusty firearm and having a shoot-out, but will do your karmic resonance a world of good, long term.
I can almost see how having a security monitoring device would go.....
Knock, Knock, Knock.......
Answer Door....."Who is it?"
Guy forces his way in...... "Mrs. Doe, this is ADT are you in need of service?"
Guy slits victims throat....... "Gurgle, Gurgle, Gurgle, really bloody gurgle......THUD!!!"
ADT voice: "Don't worry Mrs. Doe, help is on the way!"
Burglar (thinking to self) "Better make this quick, probably have about 5 minutes or so"
Burglar takes a few valuable looking items and leaves.....
10 minutes later the cavalry rides in to clean up the mess........ADT is about as valuable as LifeAlert is at preventing crime if the intruder has no
compunctions about ending your life......just sayin'
I have no issues with someone making an intruder leave the easy way if a person has the jimmies to force thier way into a house.
