    Happy Holidays - Stick em up!



    According to my local Fishwrapper (newspaper) there have been
    6 armed robberies (or attempts ) in the last 5 weeks in the small
    city where I work.

    No doubt you all have read similar tales in your areas.

    It appears that the economy has spurred some of the more ambitious scumbags from thievery into outright violence.

    I hope that we on this board will be even more vigilant and watchful
    as we go about our business.

    Perhaps we can help discourage some of these acts by simply
    watching and witnessing.

    And if necessary, we at least can defend ourselves.

    Glad I just upgraded my carry weapon to a .40 S&W!

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    I hear from my local police captain neighbor that home invasions in our city are on the increase. just last week at the homeowner association meeting, there was a report of burglars walking into a home and robbing it while the homeowners slept soundly. They even stole the husbands' wallet from his nightstand as the couple slept soundly!

    that takes some guts on the robbers' part. But all the more reason to have some sort of security system to at least warn you that someone has violated your perimeter.

    This scenario scares me to death. Every house we've bought in the last....10 years (3 homes) has had no alarm at all. First thing I did before putting furniture in was have an alarm company install an alarm and three keypads (front and garage doors, master br).

    All were in good neighborhoods, but like my father used to say, "Thieves don't steal from bad neighborhoods. They don't have anything worth taking."

    We've had three armed robberies [that I know of] at local businesses in the last week! The most recent one was at JC Penny at the local mall at closing time.

    Not so long ago we wouldn't have three armed robberies a year!

    Home invasions and burglaries are also up.

    Crime always spikes around Christmas, combine that with a poor economy and we'll see plenty of this.
