    From article:

    It started before six Saturday morning. Her husband woke her up.
    “He told me there's some girl out in the front yard. I opened the front door which was stupid and I asked her can I help you?” Almgren said.

    At that point two men forced their way into the home.

    MWAG........do you read a lot of news articles?

    Maybe good conversation here, but those that really need to know are those that get victimized and seldom listen to others. What can we do about that and getting the word out to the unsuspecting and defenseless? What do you feel for those victims of these crimes you report? Lessons to be learned? You'd like to be a 'neighborhood hero'?

    That would be my Achilles heel in my home security. Under like circumstances my wife would be duped and open the door seeing only a lone girl and maybe me too. Unfortunately, she has no interest in firearms and is scared to death of them.

    Notice that the criminals didn't get away with any guns even though they specifically asked if there were any? Looks like the criminals picked on the right house to plunder and pillage. I guess that's two more California voters that are having to second guess the "police will protect us" theory. Well, unless a half hour is acceptable to them.

    Yeah, I know I find a lot of these stories. Seems to me there are more and more of em.

    I also know I'm preaching to the choir. But maybe just maybe someone reads a story here that reminds them of a friend or neighbor and they pass it on.

    That's really my only goal in posting them.

    Shooting the messenger doesn't help. Presenting as an example of risks, situations and clear lessons to be learned helps everyone open-minded enough to listen (ie, we here).

    The message here goes out each and every day......we need to figure out how it can be delivered to the sheep so they can better mind themselves with less shepherds on the range.
    Which gets to the crux: with the sensationalist "news" slant of much of what people hear these days, a disturbingly high percentage seem to have gone deaf, dumb and blind. Until they're willing to help themselves with an open mind and consideration of the info, it can be difficult to get any "message" across. The info needs to clearly identify risks, steps people can take, how to get more info/training. (Of course, any public airing of such gets heard by the other side as well. Hard to avoid that.)

    Dennis, this might make a good present for the wife. Also handy for situations where deadly force is not justified.

    Duping people to "open" the door for a percieved "emergency" or Good Samaritan act is getting to be a tactic used by the thugs more these days.

    People feel compelled to open the door, much like they do with answering phones, it's just ingrained into us.

    However, no amount of warning or stories like this will impact all people, it will only "save" some of them. Some people are just born to be victims and never learn.
