Security lights, dog, perimeter.. Not necessarily in that order..
Damn problem is the bad guys have the upper hand.. Hell you do not know if that person approaching your home is selling bibles, or wants to rob you..
Here also our Deputies are stretched too the limit..
To much A.O. to cover..
Most robberies happen during the day, as per Black Blade's post..
Hell they do not want to come in when your there, they want in when your not there, much easier..
Home invasion.. Lights come on, dog barks, pay attention and get ready.
Damn crack head, pill head neighbor was stealing my gas...
Told my neighbor, retired Deputy Sheriff, I was going to cap him...
"Tim you will be in jail for murder, you can not kill someone on a misdemeanor."
Dogs, lights. Work with your neighbors to form a community watch..
Neighbors you can trust that is..
Hell my neighbor was the damn one robbing me..
If I told him I was leaving, watch the house.
Oh he would have watched it, from the inside..
He just turned 19. In the big house on 8 felony counts, so were safe for a bit.
I actually liked the kid.. Parents never taught him consequences..
He will learn now, the hard way..
