It seems like in the last couple of years there have been a lot of home invasion robberies in our region. Something you never heard of before. Most of them are clustered around the city (Nashville) a hundred miles away, but a few days ago a couple of young (white - just for the record) thugs beat the crap out of a couple of seniors in their rural Eagleville TN home
- for less than $50. They walked around a security gate and up a long driveway, knocked on the door and forced their way in. Pistol whipped the 86 Year old WW2 vet and smacked around his 93 Year old 70 pound wife.
My wife and I live at the end of a long rural driveway. What do you do?
Maybe I should get a pair of big mean dogs. Maybe I should start keeping my loaded revolver on top of the clock next to the door.
But dang, I really don't want to live like that - grabbing my gun every time a Jehovah's Witness comes up the drive, and worrying about some body getting bit by the guard dogs.
Criminals suck, because of the way they effect all of us. I never used to even lock my garage door. Now that harmless old man is apt to shoot the meter reader out of being terrorized like that. It's the way of the world I guess. Gotta adapt.
