On the news this morning,in England, a burglar was apprehended by the 69yr old grandmother whose
house he had in mind to rob..far from giving in to him, she locked him in the garden shed and called the police. As he was high on drugs, and hungry, he raided the bird food and consumed a far amount of seed including insects and worms.
Got to hand it to this lady....don't mess with old ladies!
Good early Afternoon El, and ALL..

LOL...

Fair play to her El,
And bless her quick thinking..

Interesting.. Along similar lines,

a radio disc jockey asked his listeners
last Monday what they would do in the following circumstances..

He had been in a store on Sunday, he told, getting drinks for
his kids, when he witnessed a guy buying a Sunday newspaper,
when the sales assistant wasn't looking,
the same guy pocketed 2 ice creams.. paid for his paper
but not the ice creams.

The radio guy wanted to know whether he should have
alerted the store owner, there & then...
But on thinking it through, he said,
the thief might take it out on him then ...

or later, break into his house and cause harm to
his family, so he reasoned, it wouldn't be worth
Getting involved
for the sake of two ice-creams being stolen by a stranger,
Yet he admitted to having felt guilty that he did zero about it.

He asked on radio what others would do...
In the circumstances.

Lots of calls came in with varying opinions;

mine would have been,
to phone the store owner afterwards and tell him
what I witnessed, explaining that I had no wish to get involved more
deeply..
But to be on the alert as to what's going on.

What would you folks do?

It's an isolated case though otherwise it wouldn't have
been on the news. People who are robbed and attacked
are in the majority in all fairness.

'Afternoon Grace...

interesting one...

It sounds like there were just the two customers in the shop, along with kiddies with their father...so, if the shop-keeper
is unable to keep an eye on what is going on around him, as
petty pilfering is to be expected, sadly, then it is his loss.
Not worth interfering about.
The shop-keeper, if tipped off, would be put in a difficult position if broaching it with the shop-lifter, or, he could call the cops who would come along and arrest him.....for two ice-creams?
It could be he had just been made redundant, and his kids were crying out for an ice-cream for which he hadn't got the money...

I have dealt with armed people and feel I was always safer not brandishing a weapon even when they wouldn't hesitate to fire

proficiency and the ability to disarm someone rarely come from one who does brandish for threat or intimidation, if I am drawing I am shooting

How I read this is the radio guy had kids with him, or out in the car. The pilferer did not have kids with him, but it's possible he had kids in car too.

Whichever ... kids (the radio guy's for sure) are involved. So his response MUST take his own kids presence into account.

I can understand that.

I was threatened at gun point (a 12 bore rifle) some time ago,
I mentioned it before on this thread I believe.

I couldn't resist it Denny....

in a silly mood today...:)

Did I tell you one time I was in bed, heard a noise but wasn't
sure, came downstairs and found a bloke of around 19, in the
lounge. He had found the door keys in the door, and instead of just pushing them through the door, came through two doors into
the lounge. It was about 2.30 a.m. I knew him as he was the
son of a neighbour,but I also knew he was heavily into drugs, so
as he explained he had found them in the door, I just said 'that
was neighbourly of you, thanks'..rather than letting him see I didn't believe his motives, anything to get him out of the house.
