Agreed - but I think you missed the point of my post.
As a sidenote, the involved individuals were caught, tried, and sentenced. The one responsible for repayment skipped the state afterwards to avoid the payments. Moved to Ohio and the state refused to envoke a violation of parole.
Getting back to the original post, fence frames/cross members on the outside (public side) of the fence are perfect step ladders. If these guys are going over the tops of fences, 4 or 6-penny nails hammered into the top of each plank with 1/2" showing and the heads snipped off are a great deterrent. Keeps the birds and squirrels off, too.
don't have a fence, just camera's
I have a fence and a 75 pound Boxer that's built like a MAC TRUCK...hop over the fence and think you have some cover and see what happens....once I hear him (Boxer) change his bark tone...I'm ready on the inside, 911 + Gun (Mossberg 500 home defense) and its playmate on the hip...
You guys with the signs are probably right...
After all, the thugs don't read the "No Weapons" signs at the bank, the Waffle House, or anywhere else for that matter.
They just think they're pretty pictures of guns... They cain't read any way.
