    Bad : Homeowner Victimized in Home Invasion

    This happend in Fayette Co WV.

    The method of choice to gain entry. Knock on door and when answered, push their way in. The guy had a gun but somehow they wrestled it away from him and unloaded it. Don't know how that happend.

    This man should never allow the door to be opened, especially if it is someone he does not know. Valuable lesson though.

    Lots of questions left unanswered in that story but I'm very glad the man survived as well as he did.
    Seems as if there's been an increase in home invasions over the past year; or at least I'm hearing more about them.

    That "I need to borrow a phone" should be code for "I want to rob you".

    Why should dirtbags willing to do this...be allowed to escape, of instead of being filled with lead at the scene?
    Society has no use for these kinds of individuals because they WILL escalate their crime sprees.

    The elderly gentleman should have used the thousand dollars in his wallet to buy a bigger gun and/or some training.
    I hope he has learned for this lesson.

    I am amazed at how many people just open their door when they hear a knock. I have been guilty of this in the past but it gets one thinking about identifying who is at your front door before allowing them access.

    I have always been a bit suspicious of people knocking on the door that I do not know. Call me paranoid, but I have read way too many of these stories of people who are too trusting and the predators know it.

    Sadly there was a time when you could trust but those days are disappearing.

    So true. I don't answer the door without a gun on anymore. It's not that I don't feel safe where I live, I just don't take any chances. You can't plan when an incident will occur.
