We need more police protection, preferably police who are headquartered nearby,not Shaftsbury. Why can't we hire more locally.

Pawn shops need to be required to ask for identification when "customers" come in asking to sell their ill begotten wares.

Know your neighbors and watch each other. Tell them when you will be away, if you are expecting any work on your home, etc. Be vigilent.

Make sure motion lights are installed around your home. Put a camera in your home and outside (even in a tree.) Let's catch these monsters.

We are under seige. Beware and take care.

You don't want to pay the taxes for a local PD.

Pawn shops require a photo ID from sellers.

Why waste tax dollars on police protection and alarm systems....
You only have to kill one in your living room to keep the others away....

New law in Pennsylvania, shoot the useless bastards on your front lawn.... No need to wait for them to come into your house anymore....
For entertainment purposes, go for a leg or shoulder shot to watch them squirm in pain for awhile and then go for the head shot at close range.....

Or would you rather they go to that religious wacko clinic
to find Jesus after they shot your ass?????

You are joking, right??????

Gee, anybody ever hear of this new fangled device called
Home Security System... Rumor has it that it will even call your
cell phone and give you live video feed of the no-gooder going
through your wife's panty drawer.....

Seriously, if you can afford a home in Dorset and don't have
home security, you're dumber than a tree stump and deserve to
get your shit stolen....

You weren't talking about a home security system, you were talking about shooting a burglar in your house. You have to be in the house at the same time as the burglar to shoot them.

Is this how you carry on a discussion? Meet a point you can't refute and switch to another one hoping no one will notice?

Refuting and switching???
Are you that fcking ignorant????

Your response: "Most of the time burglars break in when no one is home."

My response: "Seriously, if you can afford a home in Dorset and don't have home security, you're dumber than a tree stump and deserve to get your shit stolen"....

Still talking about the no-gooders Opie... No refute and no switch!!! MAIN TOPIC, DEALING WITH HOME BURGLARIES....

Or would you have rather I responded to your "no one home" comment by saying "No Shit Duhhhh"?????

There are two ways to deter home burglaries, with a gun or by security system.... If you have neither, tough shit... It's not the job of the police to check each and every home to make sure
Johnny Badass hasn't stolen your Play Station console or Sam's Club jewelery....

Oh shit, should I have said the Play Station also came from Sam's Club because you might take that as a refute or switch....

I see you both lack the required reading and writing skills to carry on a discussion over the Internet. By all means, respond to this post with childish insults and counters to points that were never made.

Tell me, why do "two" grown men spend so much time following the news in Bennington, a town "they" profess to hate and have since moved away from?

Gun works for any kind of dirtbag.

Including the pond scum from east Bennville.
