I know how you feel Greg,

 

I live on a outside corner lot and my house has a 4' x 8' high window facing the street and it gets egged routinely (2-3 times /year).

 

So everytime I hear a strange noise, I'm 'UP' running to see if there is a bunch of teenagers peeling away from my house. Haven't ever caught any of the little b!stards yet,

 

God have mercy on them If I catch em, 'cause I wont. :curse::beating::flex::whip::box::boxers:

Scratch:

Did you spell that right?

Or did you mean they tried to molar-tov cocktail your house? :D

If you caught them, did you chew them out? :P

 

Seriously though, I trust you called the gendarmes.

If the little Rat Ba$$t@rds didn't succeed at your place,

odds are they will try somewhere else later. :o

What they need is to have their backsides warmed a time or two. :curse:

 

You can probably relax now, 'cause that was the third bad thing. :D

I managed to spook them off before they could get it lit - and I now have a video-camera in the window... ever vigilant.

 

I did indeed call the gendarmes - who arrived about 7 minutes after the call - which frankly I was impressed by. From the police - I learned that there have been a number of these incidents of late in this neighborhood - so the police were very pleased to get a report with a description...

 

Just nasty. This city is starting to get ugly... It's about time someone in city council and the province realize that our police force is woefully underfunded, and doesn't have the manpower or presence necessary to properly patrol and police.

 

 

GRRRR.

I sympathize with you buddy!!! Last year our door bell rang at 4:00 am . There was a body lying at the foot of our outside front door, covered with a blanket. The cabbie drove off after a minute.I didn't get a chance to ask him WHAT THE HELL HE WAS DOING DROPING THIS GUY OFF!!!!

I called the Law ,They arrived by 7:00am and arrested the Guy . He had some tools on him, a stolen phone, stoned and didn't know where he was?? I had called the law a couple of days later to find out what happened to the guy, All they would say, was that he was on parol and was arrested for breaking it !!! AND WE LIVE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN!!!!!!!!! <_ give me a gun no that won help bomb src="http://nlft.org/forum/uploads/emoticons/default_devil2.gif" alt=":devil:">:curse:

One word dude... slingshot.

 

Meh, my new native neighbour's kids (13 and 14).. first night after they moved in just two weeks ago held up the corner liquor store and smoke shop at 4 AM. The police dogs followed their scent the whole four blocks away too.. mighty impressed with them K-9 units.

 

Last week on Wednesday Visions, Metro Plumbing, and Cash Canada got broken into in the same strip mall. Saw some kids hanging out back vandalizing the school about midnight on a wednesday then too. Hmmmmmmmm.

 

Yeah... I think I got y'all beat for redneck neighbors and wandering thug gangs carrying 9 irons. Watch for the Hawks helicopter hovering above my place up in the Northeast eeeevery weekend.

 

I gotta move soon - already been looking. No offfence to Doc's wife whom works for the management company that owns this place-- but this neigborhood is going to poo indeed. Sad to see after 10 years living here too, and growing up in the the same hood as a kid. :(

 

Bodies floating past the Firehole on the North Saskatchewan... yeah... I just gotta move this year.

A suggestion: Move out of the City.

 

Not once in my life(all 17 years) can I remember there being a single problem in our area. Closet neighbor is almost 2 KM away. Sure you live far away from your needs, such as a grocery store, or a school, or Tim Hortons Coffee. But then again you don't have to worry about rowdy little craps across the street spraypainting your place. The only serious noise you hear, is gunshots(but don't fret because you would become part of that problem) and you might even become a crack marksman while you live in the country.

LOL! My buddy Norm sent me this timely story....

 

How To Call The Police

 

George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi was going to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the shed,which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

 

He phoned the police,who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he said no. Then they said that all patrols were busy,and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available. George said,"Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

 

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well,you don't have to worry about them now cause I've just shot them all." Then he hung up.

 

Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence. Of coarse, the police caught the burglars red-handed.

 

One of the policemen said to George: " I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

 

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

There will be a time when you will find that you cannot farm and fish. Sure you can as a youngster, but when farming is your living.....well I made the choice and it has been full of trade-offs. Got a regular job, moved into town, I can fish alot more than I could have otherwise but!......... I miss living in the country, where you can forget all of your problems.....because they are buried out in the back 40!

Slingshot?

Sounds like a non-lethal deterrent allright.

Only two problems with that.

1. Ya gotta be there when theys doing stuff in order to pot them

2. Some of them dudes carry a lethal response.

 

Alternatives:

A. Make your house look occupied.

1. Lights on motion sensors, front and back

Not lights that are on all the time as that doesn't work.

But a light that goes on and off based on movement will do two things

one is attract the neighbour's attention to goings on

the other is to startle or disconcert the potential perps.

2. Lights inside on timers with a random on-off pattern.

Should be able to buy one for about $30.

3. Ditto for a radio tuned to a talk station.

4. Big dog in the back yard.

B Secure your house

1. Monitored alarm system.

Mine costs $250 per year but it includes installation, and warning signs.

It's even set up so the cat doesn't set it off, but people will.

Internal motion sesnsors and door swithes with very loud siren.

I even get a beak on my homeowners insurance.

2. Good locks - Mine are Chubb 1 1/2" deadbolts with strike plate

screwed through the jamb right to the stud.

3. Bars on the small basement windows and maybe garage windows.

A set costs about $30 and can be self installed.

They can be quick release swing out from inside.

4. Get rid of aluminum slider windows if you have them

They are far too easy for thieves to lift out.

5. Secure ovehead garage door with electronic rolling code opener.

C. Cultivate your neighbours

Eyes and ears in the community are the best deterrent.

Make friends with your neighbours and

agree to keep an eye on each other's place.

Let them know when you go away for a weekend or longer,

and encourage them to do the same.

D Keep your place neat and tidy.

New York and other communities have found that run down neighbourhoods

have a much higher crime rate and that simple clean up reduces it.

E Support your local constabulary.

Encourage the City to move to more community policing.

Encourage your city and province to fund more officers.

Support AADAC and other community services for addicts and youth.

 

 

That might not stop the pyros and petty vandalism

but it will reduce the chance your place will be a target.

Guys,

 

You want to modify behavior - take a mesage from the whack and stack crowd. Bet you'd only have to whack about 1/2 of the little monsters before B/E's and other crimes would disappear.

And then you could spend your money on useful things. A B/E into my garage cost me only $400.00 to increase the security. For the cost of a bullet, problem is solved.

 

Wife generally gets pissed @ me for pointing out it costs $40,000/yr. to keep one pecker-wood in jail and $ 4,000 to keep a kid in school. Whack a percher-wood and 10 kids get free education. Sounds like a deal to me.

Don I like your reasoning. :clap: There is something to say about some of our Middle Eastern Brotheren. You steel something you lose a hand. :beating: If anything the next time he can only steal half as much. :clap: Crime rate in those countrys is very low. I notice that prison life in those countrys is no roaring hell :eek: either. No prisoners demanding colour TV. :(

I was told by a friend of mine that in his country you could leave a suite case with a million dollar in it on the front seat of your vehicle leave it and still be there when you got back. :clap::clap:

 

Bring on Justice. :devil::devil:
