Bloody hell man, you'd be safer in Iraq.
@Levin Why Iraq? If anything, Japan is the safest, though their suicide rates are pretty high.
!!!Did they leave as soon as they realized someone was home?
Nope. Tried to come in more, but he never left. Dogs got to him.
I’m glad to hear that! Dogs are great for this. 😊
Agreed. The clean up was... messy. But its one less jerk in the world.
So you mean he didn’t survive the dog attack?
Yeap, I'll spare you the details
What race are your dogs?
My guess was them or pitbulls. Both great guard dogs.
Agreed. Rotties are smarter though
Prevention is definitely very important!
@Flower7 yes 100%, I wonder at times how these people get access to peoples homes at times.Fitting good quality anti snap locks.Fitting designed secure handles and door fittings.Fitting good quality secure doors.Fit London and Birmingham bars.doorguard.co.uk/.../d16_birmingham_bar_online.htmldoorguard.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d15_london_bar.htmlhttps://www.securedbydesign.com/https://www.rockdoor.com/security-ratingswww.locksmiths.co.uk/.../
Those look like good products, thanks!
@Flower7 no problem, the idea is to reduce the risks, to make a pain to try and get in.External lights, cameras and alarms reduce the risk by being a visual deterrent, doors and locks etc are a physical one.
Lighting is a good idea. And pretty too, as an added bonus. I love when people have a line of lights going down each side of their walkway.
@Flower7 as someone from Newcastle I am very aquatinted with house security… @DonkeyDan I think only Scousers are better
@ChrisMaster69If Scousers can't get into a house they just nick the whole house lolWhat am I taking about, there's no Scouser that hasn't been able to break into a house 🤣
@DonkeyDan I have a few of these on the drive way to the house.upload.wikimedia.org/.../...led_on_a_Pike_1924.jpg
I’m very glad that he was caught! He got roughed up quite a bit. People must not understand how dangerous it is to break into people’s houses. They never know what they’re going to walk into!
Nope, he did not get roughed up enough, if I'd have clicked hold of him before he got out the front door, he'd have had more than a chewed ankle and a split scalp to deal with, I'm old school and believe that if you break in to someone’s home you deserve everything you get. If this happened today with the same scenario, I would have been charged with 'Assault occasioning actual bodily harm' and the dog would have been euthanized. The PC culture has a lot to answer for as far as Law and Order is concerned.

Wiw, what a mess! I’m really glad that you were able to move away from there!
I’m glad he got caught. I’m also glad that you got at least a few of your things back.
I didn’t know there were cheaper options for alarm systems, that don’t involve alerting the company. That’s a good thing to think about.
Yes it's just the equipment, the installation and keeping them with batteries. Beyond that you need internet and an app on your phone. If the alarm is triggered you will be notified. You decide what you do from there. Ie you could connect to a camera in your home to check before alerting the police. Or call a neighbor and have them check.
Sorry your family went through that. Cheating is horrible!
It wasn't the first time.
Awesome, it’s a very good feeling to know that your home is a safe place!
For sure :)
Wow, could his list of crimes be any longer lol. He was doing about 5 of them, all at the same time! Trespassing counts too!
The worst part is I saw the accident, and they wanted me to testify... like uh no, I don't want to. They almost made me, but he took a plea deal before that came to be.I didn't want to miss any work and lose pay, I had no issue with a written statement. If they wanted to pay me my wages, I'd have happily testified.
Very good to know. Trash from expensive things is definitely something to be careful about.
Dogs help a lot!
Yes they do and so do the firearms
I’m very glad you were able to get away from living that way!
Fear is the ultimate motivator
Did he get hurt very badly?
Sorry, I mean, I'm English. I just told him to go away politely.
And that worked?
Thank goodness for the dogs!!! 🐕 🐕
Absolutely. Smart dogs too. My boy was only 11 months old at the time. They know when people are up to no good.
So I’m guessing you have an alarm on your house?
One time is way too many!!!
Did this happen when the house was empty?
Yes! No one was home and no one was harmed. It happened in broad daylight.
Interesting. That’s good to know! Maybe they’re too lazy to keep climbing to the top of the hill lol.
