Not good. Makes my bleed'n blood boil.

Just watched Trevor Macdonald in US in women's high security jail. One woman was sentenced to 16 years for 'strong assault'. That's basically aggravated robbery, just not armed.

The sooner we have heavy sentences (not 3 strikes and you're out sh*te) then we may actually see a decline in crime!

...."bear trap"...

what's the harm in that if the bear trap is somewhere obscure (e.g) inside the console or somewhere that only a thief might go rummaging, cant be accessed accidentally by people or animals and it on private locked land?

Surely after breaking and entering onto private land then tampering with someone else's belongings they get what's coming?

Bear traps, electricity, you name it?

Ironic when protecting your property against scumbags can end up with you in more bother than the P.O.S that's stealing your pride & joy..

anyone with half a brain cell would agree with you, but of course the do-gooders of this country disagree. unfortunately.

But surely there is more of us then them, or have we been taken over by these lily livered lefties?

I hope I am alive for the revolution!!!

I had a spate of getting me garage broken into that I rented in a quiet private yard belonging to a small engineering company over my back garden wall . I resorted to a long length of 30 lb mono fishing line stretched across the yard set at waist level ( above animal height ) so foxes / cats wouldn't set it off fastened to a 3 foot length of 3 inch aluminium tube that I left up ontop of the wall , Only took about a week before around 4 am in the morning there was a clatter of a tubular bells ensemble running all down through the village and into a waiting transit pickup funny as most of the village woke up to see what all the noise was with this guy frustratingly trying to untangle it all from his leg .

I like the idea of fishing line, especially with a few big treble hooks........
