    As some of you may recall, last July our garage was burglarized by three guys. One was detained and recently went through the legal process.

    So why do I say the legal system blows? Well, first there is the fact that the whole time the guy was claiming that his truck was stolen and so he was not guilty. The case drags on and on for 10 months and then on Tuesday he decides to roll over and admit he was guilty because the public defender realized that if my wife went onto the stand she would crusify his case.

    But that isn't why the system sucks. The system sucks because this guy admitted he was guilty, admitted that he filed a false report about his truck being stolen and all he gets is probation. What do I get? I get to be happy he got probation and $700 worth of my stuff that I DO NOT get restitution for. Now can someone explein to me how it is possible for a man to admit to burglarizing my house and yet not have to make ammends for what he took? I mean seriously!! Where in Hades is the justice in that. He breaks the law and gets off clean and I get screwed!!

    I am half of the mind to get a conceled weapons permit so if something like this ever happens again I can just shoot the SOB and see if he can say he was not there when the pull the dang bullet out of his leg.

    welp as far as prison time, the prisons are full of non-violet offenders due to maditory sentances for drug crimes. doesnt really matter that you had a couple of joints and you were in your house with no intent to sell. lots of states will give yah 3 years if you have a poor lawyer. thats also the reason alot of the child molesters are out, the prisons are full of ppl busted for having drugs on them. money should go twords treatment for NON-VIOLENT drug offences and they get community service and such, not prison time. America is loosing the drug war, we need to admit it. as far as the legal system, it got screwed up by a bunch of lawyers

    You live in Georgia, right?

    One of the gun-friendliest states in the Union. Get the gun. Take a safety class, practice regularly at a range, and get a gun safe.

    And don't aim for the leg.

    * it's easier to miss than center-of-mass.
    * a lightly wounded man is scared, and more likely to return fire, if armed.
    * dead men cannot sue, or contradict your story to the police.

    A grouping of three rounds, center-of-mass, will drop him, and ensure he will not be a future threat to you or to society.

    If you hit center mass, you have a higher probability of killing the individual. While it is a drag being burglarised, because I have been burglarised twice, to kill someone for taking material stuff that can be replaced is kind of a bit much.

    Home owners or renters insurance is a good thing to have. If the legal system disappoints you...at least your stuff gets replaced. My stereo, computer, camera and bass guitar all were replaced.

    I say get a gun, if not something powerful something like a .22 or a .38 , that way if you do end up hitting the guy you have a lesser chance of it being fatal.

    Its not murder if you kill someone while they're breaking into yoru house or attadking you.

    Well at least you're not in california. If that would have happened to be the robber would have gotten a new place to live and I would be paying fines for letting him break into my house. Oh yea and I'd be put in jail for defending myself... even though I used an edge weapon or a staff..... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
