    To be honest. If i heard someone breaking in my house, I would wait quietly until they entered, and shoot them dead in there tracks, [as soon as both feet were in the entrance of which they chose of course]. I dont believe this world needs anymore unthoughtful, piles of sh!!!!t.. Get a job like the rest of us

    …because CHPD is manned by officers that couldn’t make it with other agencies…..

      I don’t know about the CHPD employees or their employment qualifications, but Red light, and stop sign runners are their forte. There seems to be a conflict in priorities, traffic or felony crimes. CHPD and Rsvl PD are hard on easy money issues. Got to build revenue’s the easy way, traffic infractions are easy money, not like actual cop work which requires physical activity. KUDOS to the lady who put the burglars to flight, to bad they weren’t inside so she could have shot them and been legal.

    Good for her, too bad she didn’t hit any of them from the sounds of it. As someone said earlier, if they were brave enough to try to get by my dogs, I would be quietly waiting for them to come into my house…
    I’m sure the police would show up a lot faster too. No offense I know they are hopping but still.
