Home Invasion

Brigid poses a very common-sense post regarding how to protect oneself and family from home invasion.  They are becoming more common Nationwide.  While most violent crime is dropping.

Between gangs thinking you have something of value, and law enforcement making address mistakes, it’s wise to be prepared.  Just as with a mugging, a cell phone just won’t cut it.

I used to work with a TV field cameraman for Channel * here locally, and he responded to a home invasion in the Valley wherein the criminals obviously were looking for drugs and money.  They had a wrong address.  The miscreants were fully outfitted as Mexican Army Nationals.  The police pulled his camera tape of the crime scene and the post-invasion interviews, because they didn’t want the public to think the United States was being invaded by a foreign power.

We were.

These events are not just a couple of teens kicking in a door, looking for thrills and spare change.  These are serious people.

Be Prepared.

  1. We don’t see a lot of Mexican Army up here (/sarc). Mexican cartels? Yes, but they keep a very low profile – WAY too many of us are armed 24/7. (insert evil grin) Heh.
