    Bad: Handguns and a hammer

    ... Used in a home invasion... couple of people hurt with the hammer, not seriously. Cash and a cel phone taken.

    Worse: Sheriffs office suggests you comply and be a good witness, during this season in which they see more home invasions....

    Story here
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Sgt. Chris Douglass added, "And if something should happen where someone does force entry into their home just go ahead and comply and try to be the best witness you can be don't try to fight or struggle with the person because your life is more important than the belongings that you have there."
    Exactly why I would fight/struggle. What Sgt. Douglass doesn't seem to understand is that they might not just take your stuff and leave, but they might decide to kill you as well. My stuff isn't important but my life is, and I won't take any chances with my life.

    Sgt. Chris Douglass said, "Two of them were masked and had handguns and one had a hammer and they did actually injure two of the victims with the hammer because there was some sort of struggle."
    I will fight back also; the two unmasked criminals may just decide they do not want any witnesses left behind.

    Well, um.....................

    Invading, with the signature/intent to do harm, My:
    - Home
    - Hotel Room
    - Tent (when camping), which is rare now, since I spent most of my adult life being cold, wet and miserable
    - Bathroom stall
    - Personal space in general

    All gets basically the same conditioned response from me. Oh, and do not try to shake me awake when I am sleeping. Just sayin.

    Semper Fi,

    @ oakchas/OP (+1) = yet another 'classic find' that you posted!

    I am going to do the same thing that I suspect the good Sheriff will do.

    Sgt. Douglass said exactly what the SHEEP wanted to hear. Pathetic.

    Comply with the bad guys?!

    Not in my county... Earlier this year, a couple towns over, a man drank too much on a night on the town... His friends dropped him off at a house in a neighborhood where he said he knew somebody... He was banging and hollering at the door, the homeowner yelled through the door, "you got the wrong house" ...the homeowner then opened the front door (I personally disagree with doing this...) The drunk guy then opened the screen door and came into the house, yelling "YOU WANNA FIGHT?!" Homeowner shot him....

    Deputies did not arrest the homeowner... The dead man's family was not happy. Said he was drunk and dint know what he was doing. Said homeowner shouldn't have opened the door... Wanna know what the sheriff said in a press conference?...

    "If there ever was a justified shooting, this is it," Judd said.*"William Cornwell had every right to protect himself, his wife and his children from this irrational, out-of-control man who broke into their home. The mistake the suspect made by breaking into that home was a fatal one."


    You couldn't pay me to live in California. My husband's company has actually tried several time to move us there, I refuse. *I'll stay right here, thank you very much!
