I was going to respond to this topic but Rattler pretty much expressed how I feel.
One thing I'd like to add though.
Cops risk their life to do their jobs. Firemen do too. In fact most people risk injury or death every day they work, including me. I'm an electrician and I know that everyday I go to work may be my last. I even had a real close call last week. It's a risk that I accept. Like I said almost every job has risks. Everybody that does that job knows about and has to accept those risks. Being a thief is no different.You know that every house you rob may be your last. You know that there may be a gun on the other side of that door. You know that if you break into that house the person inside has every right to wound or kill you. It's just the occupational risk of being a thief.
I risk my life to earn the money I use to buy my stuff. If somebody wants to come and take my stuff from me, then they will have to risk their life too.
I'm sure that the home owner won't have to worry about his house being broke into tonight though. Problem solved.
I saw a sign one time that said "Nothing I own is worth your life."
