Is Mise,

As police are continually advising, weapons can taken be by intruders and turned against us. Good locks and personal alarms are a better idea.

Dear Belly,

We need to try several methods to solve the
problem. Some will fail others may work.
But just sticking with punishment has proven
not to be the answer. In the US - where the
problems with blacks were huge - they have
found that community involvement and grassroot
action has succeeded in many areas - especially
in places like Harlem. Getting involved in sport,
and other community activities has helped.

The best method to solve this problem is to lock the sods up, & do it for a very long time. How about chain gangs in remote northern national parks, clearing rubber vine & prickly acacia. A couple of years should make them decide that crime doesn't pay.

This of course should be followed by at least another year on a metropolitan chain gang, cleaning up the roadsides. I doubt anything would give the young hood pause before their next "job".

Second offences should attract at least 5 years, followed by 10 years for a third offence. Not only would our national parks improve, but if locked up long enough the sods will be too old to commit offences if let out again.

Anything like psychologists & physiatrists involvement must be eliminated. These young hoods are far to smart for these pretend medicos.

It is totally obvious these hoods don't want help, just our valuables, & it is about time for some really tough love.

Hi there BELLY...

Crimes occasioned against the elderly, or the very young are quite common and have been around for years regrettably. Best way to explain them, they're crimes of 'opportunity' and that of 'ease.' Perpetrators generally have little difficulty overpowering older or very young citizens, by threatening to use violence. Neither demographic are capable of mounting any real defence to an assault. Therefore, they're overwhelmed with consummate ease. And the Psycho's among the perpetrators, delight in instilling even further terror among them, knowing there's little likelihood of any meaningful reprisal.

Police in most States provides advisory service, to aid older people to reside safely in their own homes. I should also point out - most of us have Content Insurance Policies.

* 'Life is precious' * Where everything else, is either covered by Insurance or it doesn't matter!

ttbn,

"As police are continually advising, weapons can taken be by intruders and turned against us. Good locks and personal alarms are a better idea."

Good locks are only as strong as the door that they are on; personal alarms mean nought as they can be taken from the victim and rendered inert.

A 12 gauge shotgun is much better especially if used as the intruders are bashing in the front/any door.

It's a gutless society that denies its citizens the means of self-defence.

Is Mise,

If you want a shoot out, go for for it. I'll rely on caution, alert awareness and common sense.
