Time to Beef it up @#$%^&*O


So with the summer, comes lots of kids with too much time on their hands... and we are seeing the effects of it here in East Nash...
Today there was another incident and our neighbors were robbed mid day. Yes, they have all figured out that Metro shows up to an alarm call in their own good time. (today 20 mins , last week 45 mins AFTER the alarm company calls them).. so they aint skeerred.
Thieving is one of my most HATED crimes. It has happened to me before.. in Montgomery and it just completely wrecked me. Question is.. how do you really control or prevent it?
Our street is organizing a little crime watch, we all have the apparently useless alarm systems... and thanks to my dad.. a few firearms to back that up with. " I pity the fool" that tries to come, uninvited to grizaworld.
Nevertheless.... I always get great info from blog readers so let me hear all your suggestions and internet articles on crime prevention!
It begins tomorrow over here with outdoor lighting, and hopefully some fencing... and if I had my way a 3rd (much larger) dog child, however Ralphie's ferociousness shall be hard to match..
anyway.. let the suggestions begin!

Its funny you mention this Laura! Last week, at 5:30 in the AFTERNOON- I walk up to my car (parked directly in front of my door) to find my entire middle console to be gutted out, stereo and all. Second time it has happened in 5 months, and I saw the guy who did it. Yet the cops don't seem to do much about it..It makes you VERY bitter towards the community!

I think a third dog child of a larger size sounds like a fantastic idea!

I would buy a beware of dog sign and get a recording of a dog with a deep, mean bark. Anytime the doorbell rings or if you see anyone walking in front of the house, blast that thing for all to hear. Would be much cheaper than buying a big dog. They eat a lot.

So, a may be a great coinky dink, but Brianna's dad is having to give away his Bulldog. She is sweet, but protective. Could work..come on Erik.

I think you should just sit on your front porch with a rifle and when they come by.. point it at them.

I have been watching the show "It Takes a Thief" on The Discovery Channel and they have great tips on security. A lot of it is around alarm systems, but they also give you tips on how to secure your treasures also! Tivo that bad boy and spend a day watching for tips!
