There is a problem with that strategy, however. Homeowner shot and injured during burglary in Greenville County.
So someone forced their way into a home at 2:30 in the morning.
After a brief struggle with the intruder or intruders, the homeowner tried to flee on foot and was shot at least once.
So one, you have to wake up when they get there. (Alarms are cheap if you don’t care about them being monitored.) After that, my choice is to retrieve the loaded .357 Magnum sitting in my nightstand. But I’m old, fat, and have bad knees from when I was young, skinny and doing too much insane stuff – like skiing down mountains I should never have been on. So while walking away is an option, running – not so much.
Cops are providing no more info. In another story – with a completely annoying video – they say there is nothing to fear. (Of course they do.)
