    The OP's link didn't work, but ANGLICO's did...

    One out of three isn't bad...when the other two run.
    Hopefully the escaping dirtbags will be caught and charged with the murder of their dirtbag friend.

    Thanks ANGLICO, I couldn't get it to work either.

    As always, glad the occupants are safe. I hope they get the other two before they can consider coming back better equipped with revenge on the mind.

    OK, am I right in thinking we got something new going on with "home invasions"? I know we always have had burglaries, but I dont remember people breaking in, on purpose, knowing everyone is at home...to beat the heck out of them, rob, them, who knows what all to them.

    I dont think its just more coverage, I dont think we used to have these things. Am I right?

    In some jurisdictions, "home invasion", per se, is not counted as a crime - just the violent or forceful actions pursuant to the invasion. It's not a federal offense. For these reasons, neat statistics are not available.
    If home invasions are on the rise in recent years or whatever time frame you're referencing, it may be due to hardening of other targets by technology.
    But home invasions are an old form of crime. I don't think that there are that many more. It's a totally subjective opinion.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. Media coverage is more-rapid, these days. "Home invasion" hasn't always been the term ascribed to such situations. And with a much larger population than, say, 40-50yrs ago, a much larger population of felons is out there realizing that getting into the average home is only a kick away. Hard to tell if it's on the upswing, or if the tactics are really changing. "Juice" from a power trip has always been a possible motivator, for many felons.

    Fact is, though, a home that's harder to get into buys time for the occupants, whether during dinner or at 3am while sleeping. Can't easily defend against what you don't have time to defend against. It's always been incumbent on residents to (a) lock/bar their doors, (b) have hardened entry points, (c) have a "safe" (or, at least safer) area of the home easily gotten to and/or slept in, and to (d) be armed and capable of effectively withstanding violent entry. People either do or don't choose to do those things. IMO, felons are finding that many simply don't, despite the up-tick in armed citizens. And many felons are finding the odds are boosted when going in multiply, instead of solo.

    Either way, the only real import to us, as citizens? To take "hardening" precautions, of our homes and ourselves. There isn't much else one can do, really.
