VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME


VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME





Why does a certain public figure constantly say he/she was a victim of VIOLENT crime? He/She was not present when the person he/she knew was murdered? I may be wrong, but I don’t believe so.

I was always under the belief that the person whose body had been attacked violently WAS the victim of VIOLENT crime!

These are the after effects of a true victim of VIOLENT crime. Am I overtly cautious? Hell no!

I have made my home a fortress against crime.
1. I paid extra to buy my modest house in the nicer part of the city.

2. My house has 16 windows and I’ve had solid rod iron bars installed in each and every one of them.

3. I have 2 separate basements, and I've added the iron bars there, also.

4. I have 3 exit doors and replaced the screen doors with solid rod iron. All wooden doors have bolts.

5. I had a 10 ft. solid rod iron fence installed throughout my front yard, with the top tips curved inward, which makes is impossible for anyone to climb over.

6. I had a 7 ft. solid rock fence built for my entire backyard, plus I have 8 VICIOUS dogs.

7. I have two guns. ONE of them is a 9mm pistol which is always loaded. Should a would be killer somehow enter my home; you better believe he’ll be DEATHLY sorry!

8. I also belong to The Neighborhood Crime Watch, and I have a sophisticated alarm system in my house.

I am overtly cautious, not because I'm a coward, or because I'm afraid to die, but because when you’ve experienced violent crime, you want to make damn sure it NEVER happens again, and if it does, you want to make damn sure you take the bastard with you! BULLSEYE!

MY QUESTION TO YOU:
Have YOU or a loved one been a victim of VIOLENT crime? How did it change your life?

If you've never been a victim of VIOLENT crime, would you go to the extent I have, in protecting myself from future crime?

Outside of my home, I always carry my pistol. This is how I live inside my house.



I have 16 windows, and they're all covered with solid iron bars just like these.


The 3 exit screen doors were replaced with thick, solid iron, too.


Here you can see the warning Neighborhood Crime Watch,
and Burgar Alarm stickers.

If I had the money to be able to invest in all those types of protection I definatly would. I suffer from psychaitrist diagnosed paranoia but i also suffer from reasonable worry as a parent, wife, woman, daughter, and human being. I truly wish i were able to protect my children as well as you have attempted to protect yourself. Now where you and I differ is that I believe there are all kinds of victims of violent crime. I don't think when a mother is raped and slaughterd that her children who were at day care but now have no mother are any less of victims than the mother. I know you have personal hatred for Nancy Grace and while I think she indeed drove that poor woman to kill herself I don't think she is any less of a victim than the man she loved. It is sometimes worse to be the living and suffer the loss than be gone.

Actually, the 2nd one is a 40. Cal. auto Smith and Wesson subcompact Model 410, which is way too powerful. Its recoil kicks my hand upward, and that's a no, no, 'cause when I shoot, I aim to hit bullseye! ;o)

When I lived in New York City, a moron junkie tried to mug me. I didn't go well for him. I remember saying to him at one point, "Get the fuck back up! I'm not done knocking your punk, junkie ass down yet!"

I'm glad I don't feel the need to worry about that sort of thing where I live now. I do have a Glock 23C and a CZ-75 9 milli; never hurts to be prepared...

well prepared
The criminal is always well prepared to attack us, so why shouldn't we be just as prepared to deal with him!?

No, it never hurts to be prepared, my friend!

My home is an apartment, not all that fortified.
Yet I am never more then 5 seconds away from a loaded, effective firearm. I conceal and carry wherever I'm able to.

Those who would harm me and mine should find better occupations.

I've been jumped in my own back yard as a teen, I've been jumped with two friends as a young adult. I have not been harmed or directly threatened since I became more proactive.

I literally salivate
I slobber at all the Death Wish Series with Charles Bronson! I literally salivate when the bad guys get blown away to hell!

Just as you, I'm also a few seconds away from my pistol. The only time I leave my baby at home is when I go to Juarez, Mexico, because guns are prohibited there.

I'm sorry you've experienced what you have in the past. Sometimes it's good for us to go through those things, (and it sure does help to survive :o) ) because we STOP living in childhood fantasy, and wake up to the REAL world.

1) WOW...you're safer than I am. And I'm surrounded by thousands of soldiers with automatic weapons!

2)How do you get out of a window if there's a fire?

3)Next time get a .357 or .45 ...more deadlier force

I agree...she's packin a 12 guage or an M-16-like weapon....but I'm NOT gonna drop by unnanounced and try to find out!!!

Superman SOLID iron
I know you are, my dearest man, and I worry so much about you!! Believe me, you are always included in my prayers!!

I live a skip and a holler from Mexico's most powerful and dangerous cartels which is based in Juarez. Oh yeah, I am as safe as can be! :o)

There are wrought iron bars which are hollow inside and made all cutsey. I paid a little extra to have them made out of Superman SOLID iron. And since I didn't want my little 4 legged babies, Grandpa and myself to end up like burnt bagels by a fire, I had them add to SOME, an automatic device to make a quick emergency exit possible.

Nah, my little 9mm honey, if need be, will save the day! ;o)

All the precautions sound like preventative measures. Too many people wait until something happens before they secure their house.

With the gun thing - are you allowed to carry or do you have to get a permit? Just curious. I have my .357 locked up in my bedroom with a speed loader nearby.

Texas Concealed Handgun Licensing Buerau
People must realize that they are not immune from violent crime, and as you stated, they start taking precautions until after the fact.

When I became a victim of violent crime, I had no earthly idea it existed, because I was a child.

It will not happen again.

I am very sorry you had to experience the thing(s) you did...I am very sorry.

No, I have been very lucky, specially considering the amount of business travel I have done in past years. HE looked out for me...

I understand your views....

Love you!!

Maybe sometimes things happen for the best. At least that's the way I must look at it, because I much more mature and strong than girls my age and older.

And may He always look out for you and yours, my dearest friend!
Love you!

I have not been a victim but Tracy has, Her x attempted murder by trying to burn her to death. He is in prison and she lives with me. While I am here, she feels safe and secure but she hates being here when I am not. She still has fears.
I find it quite interesting what or who can make people feel safe. We live on a peaceful dead end road, where all the neighbors watch out for each other and the neighborhood dogs let you know if someone is around that should not be. I have my gun by the bed and it is always loaded.

As I said when I am here, She feels safe and protected even though the doors may not be locked, the windows are open to get the fresh breezes and able to hear the birds in the morning. When I am not here she cannot sleep. and will sometimes stay with her parents or sister, or have them stay here.

If I had been the one who was the victim, I cannot say what I would do. Possibly more guns.
