Whatever happened to civility? If you get past my perimeter defenses, and you forcibly “breach” my castle, I know you mean to do me harm! Those defenses were meant for you to avoid, ( that locked door is there for your safety ) I have the ABSOLUTE right to deter you where you stand! This applies to my situation only, if you sleep with your doors open, same rules apply to you, play stupid games win stupid intruders!
I’ve fortified my home as much as the law will allow. They forbid claymores, barbed/razor wire and electrified fences. I could deter a lot if only!
If you think about it we could save billions if homeowners did exactly what he says! Billions, just the cost of the cleanup crew!
How’s this for avoidance and deterrence, bad guys need to fear good guys. They don’t, to them we are all just fish in a barrel with a few good by-passable locks!
These days there’s not a single relative or roommate that should enter the castle without fair warning, whether that’s a phone call or curfew!
If we think hard enough, didn’t that sheriff create a form of deterrence?
When you have an administration that condones bloodshed, violence and applauds law enforcement assassination, avoidance and deterrence are out the window!
Thou shall not break into my home and thou shall not kill! It’s fairly simple!
And yet EVERYONE has a problem with deterrence! See, if we meant it we could save billions!
Theses are just jokes meant to be hung above the bar or on the bedroom wall next to the stolen “stop” sign! Personally, if I saw those signs, you can be sure I’m going to be deterred!
So maybe we could rephrase the question!
We’ve been deterred from deterring, and I’m damn sure not running from my castle!
I have a solution, make crime tax deductible! Ok! So I’m a victim of a home invasion, I survive and unfortunately the bad guy survives, I don’t pay taxes ever again and government pays me everything I paid in during my lifetime till the day my home was broken into. If bad guy loses, I only get half of what I paid in. Sounds like deterrence to me. Maybe the government will assist in the avoidance part!
