Well put .I have pact with my neighbors call the police, its not mine or their responsibility, if I see a strange guy in the neighbors yard, I will say something like, Hi do the owners know you are here or can I help you. if they are crawling in the window its 911
only shoot in self defense of you or others close to you, never involve yourself in others problem unless life or death
Also Im not to cool about letting some crook druggie go after he is warned . He might be raping the old lady down the road tommorrow. Its the cops job to deal with criminals like him. When he kills some one in a robbery next week how are you going to feel. If it was my loved one hurt or ropped Id be pretty pissed at some one who decided to let him walk .
giving the guy a free pass to go rob somewhere else did not help any one . So your having a heart felt discussion with a junkie???? how does that work do you think anything you said to him mattered? He will be in your house next week if he thinks he can get $20 for your stuff . Or did you believe him when he said he was sorry LOL
I know its a pipe dream but maybe he will get some help if he is arrested or at least be off the streets for a week or so an have a strike against him.
As far as all this kill an bury stuff sounds like a good way to throw your life away an a lot of tough talk IMO
IMO Robberies need to be reported leafs in yards thats a different matter.
