Good to hear a story of a legal firearm owner using his gun for the purpose of protection! This smuck might think twice the next time he decides to break into a home… Report Reply 0 replies · active 400 weeks ago -10 Vote up Vote down Reality Check · 400 weeks ago Oh boy.

The scanner never lies..all you hear is deputies pulling a car over on US 81 or US 160 or US 166..they should be on the back roads helping to secure the community’s safety.

Is this a trend caused by the casino?

Report Reply 0 replies · active 400 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down concerned citizen · 400 weeks ago I don’t think it is caused by the casino. More by people knowing and from seeing others get away with stealing. That is how some make a living. Nothing happens. You can not by law shoot to protect property, so they grab and run. Look at the situation at Towne East. They have had to hire extra security because of all the groups of grab and go. Plus if you mention the race – well, then you are accused of being racist, unless they are white. If more burglars knew that coming into someone else’s home that they would meet deadley force it would not look so enticing.

When they robbed neighbors they didn’t search the guys house because they “didn’t want to bother the judge by waking him up for a search warrant” Report Reply 2 replies · active 400 weeks ago -1 Vote up Vote down duane · 400 weeks ago PS good shot. remember to double tap With budget cuts I will no longer fire warning shots.
