We’re not sure what they’re teaching 9-1-1 emergency operators these days, but the bad advice given to one individual seeking emergency services might just get you killed.

An 80-year old woman in Florida who was recovering from hip surgery was relaxing in her home when two burglars smashed her back door window and made their way inside. When N.J. Logan realized it wasn’t her husband she grabbed her gun and immediately called 9-1-1.

According to Logan, who says she didn’t want to shoot anyone, the 9-1-1 dispatcher repeatedly urged her to put the gun down.

Logan’s response?

I’ll put the gun  down when I see the police.

The burglars exited the premises before the police got there and no injuries were reported.

In what world does it make sense for someone in their own home to surrender their firearm when being faced with such a threat?

    Home invaders?

    You fire first, neutralize the threat, THEN you call 9/11.


    • Navy Vet says:

      Bingo!!! When seconds count, the police are ONLY moments away!

      • RebelKing says:

        Minutes… Not moments. They are minutes away. In some cases, an hour.

        • Navy Vet says:

          Reb … Moments, minutes, what’s the difference, the semantic difference is nil, if in seconds you can be raped maimed or killed.

          The point of the statement, no matter the wording, is that the individual is responsible for his/her own protection.

          • DaisyK says:

            This article implies that this was a one-time occurrence. It happens all the time.

            If you have ever watched any of those reality crime shows where they play the 911 call. The operator ALWAYS tells the caller to put down the gun. That is so their responding officer won’t accidently be shot by the caller. They always put the safety of their officer ahead of the safety of the citizen.

          • Marcus says:

            Be precise, it makes a big difference. How long did it take police to get there… a subjectively brief but undefined period of time, or 60 seconds? I hate to be a grammar Nazi but precision is important in all things. Here’s a good example: In an average active killer situation, three are killed every minute. (1 every 20 seconds) How many more in a moment? I’m sure the difference is more than “nil” to the dead right?

            noun: moment; plural noun: moments

            1.a very brief period of time.

            “she was silent for a moment before replying”

      • buttcrackofdoom says:

        minutes…it’s MINUTES,navy….just sayin’.

      • The Stig's American Cousin says:

        Three things should happen:

        1. The 9-1-1 dispatcher should be immediately suspended.

        2. The 9-1-1 dispatcher should receive proper training on situational awareness.

        3. The local emergency contact/dispatch center should delve into their budget and have the wheel in the dispatcher’s head properly lubed and balanced. Also, maybe a new hamster to operate it.

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        Ventilate the intruders then call the coroner, and tell them to send the report takers, (I mean the cops.)

        I saw 2 Hoodies walking down the road today in the middle of the day. Up to no good.. Watched them till they were out of site. Never seen them before. They go out on recon ahead of time, looking for the weak points. Since I put up the surveillance cameras on every side of the house and by the front door, I have not had one solicitors in 5 months come by. There used to be about 1 a week.

        One time some bro’s came by, I answered the door with my 9MM Semi in my belt with no shirt on. I opened the door and said, “No Soliciting,” pointing at the sign. The Bro looked at me, then looked down at my pistol, then looked back at me again and said, sorry and good bye. He walked to the car then left probably thinking it was his luckiest day in his life. Have not seen that crew again. Anybody comes to your hood, challenge them, meaning ask what they are doing? are they lost? No trespassing, etc.

        • Balboa schwartz says:

          Similar experience here in the San Fernando Valley. Frequent visits by those who could be up to no good; casing, looking for opportunities to steal or rob. Had a 10:30 A.M. home invasion robbery on the next block one day, so, got some cameras, with microphones, put up a security panel outside by the front door, that has an emergency alarm feature that can be triggered from inside the house, and a locked gate across the front walkway up to the door. Interestingly, there haven’t been ANY of those ‘solicitors’ since we did this, but a few have come up, assessed the scene, and walked away without ringing the new doorbell. Hmmm.

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            See what they do is come by like they are selling magazines or something in the middle of the day to see who is home and who is not, and mark you house on the street as a potential target. Then another crew drives by then comes back and within seconds one goes around to the back while they keep a watch lookout in front. I have seen a crew go to a vacant house acting like a roofing crew as about 5 guys walked around on the vacant house’t roof top, all while on thug jumped the fence and was robbing the house next door. These bastards pretend to be lawn crews, or or other service crews. I told one neighbor, I said, if you see any truck or van in my driveway when my vehicle is not there, just call the cops. I have 3 single snoopy old ladies that live across the street in 3 houses. So everybody is on the look out. Also at least 80% on my block are also packing guns, shotguns, etc. even women I know.

            Another good idea is if someone comes to your door. Have your camera handy and as soon as you open the door snap their face photo. They will never come back to your neighborhood again. Let er’ Rip!!

        • buttcrackofdoom says:

          anyone sees MY GUN, it will be the last thing they see.

          • skeptic says:

            Here I am again;
            No, I am not Eisencruz. It troubles me that so many intelligent people on this web site repeatedly confuse a and an to preface a word. If the word to follow begins with a vowel— an. If the word to follow begins with a consonant—-a. Please don’t be offended by this, and I am sure I will be crucified for my comment. Go ahead, bring on the insults, just please don’t let it be the guy or gal who typed “I had a egg for breakfast”. I often have had a few cocktails when I post here. I’m guessing a lot of the rest of you do the same. Oh shit, should I look at my old posts. Maybe I am guilty of same. Please disregard this post.

      • To everyone here who has been speaking of the police being minutes away:

        I am wondering, am I the only one who remembers idiot members of the dinosaur media bragging about the police response time in the “Joker” shooting at the movie theater in Chicago? Over and over, they kept marveling about how the police were there in less than two minutes. Yet, this nutcase managed to kill a dozen people, and no one could stop him because it was “gun free zone”.

        I kept marveling, because these dimwits were accidentally making the case we all make:

        “gun free zones” don’t stop crazed killers, and

        the police aren’t there to protect individual citizens, they are there to enforce the law. Hence the term “law enforcement” And ffs, they cannot be everywhere at once, so we can we please put to rest all the foolish “CSI” notions about how the police operate in the real world?

        In this situation,the standard plan is for me to defend our bedroom while my wife calls 911. We live in a suburb, so the neighbors would surely call 911 if I have to pull the trigger. We would “stay put” because the walls and doors in our bedroom are, shall we say, much more solid than other parts of the house.

        Hey, if the little SOBs steal the eggplant parm out of the fridge, so be it. They steal the Wii from the living room, whatever. They come within range of harming those I love and cherish, I’m firing shots non stop until I see their asses drop.

        As for burying them in the backyard, I don’t want them fouling up our gardens, and I’m unwilling to put in that much effort on their behalf in any event.

        Ideals Mastering Power Creating All Life GOD IS

      • The average time it takes the Police to respond to a 911 call = 11 minutes………
        The average time it takes an armed criminal to break into your home to commit a violent attack and crime = 3 minutes…….
        The average time it takes a citizen to load and draw a personal firearm dedicated to personal protection = 15 seconds……………………………..
        Any questions?

    • Winston Smith says:

      Sadly, it appears this was in New Jersey, so the twisted legal system would have blamed her for not laying it down like a good little victim. After all, in the northeast, other people have the right to rob you if if have more than them. If I were her, I would move to a state with more reasonable laws, like Texas or Florida, where she would be free to rid society of scum when they break in to her home.

    • FuckingPissed says:

      shoot, shovel, shut up

    • wrong says:

      Fire first, neutralize the threat and then call the meat wagon.

    • the renegade braveheart says:

      Socrates, I totally agree. Had another bad day at work, just got home, got online and read this, so I’m putting in my 2 cents and all the old timers here know what it is. I say the same as Socrates; get your gun and waste the SOB, THEN call 911 and tell them they can come clean up the mess. NO 911 OPERATOR OR ANYONE ELSE TELLS ME WHAT I CAN OR CANNOT DO CONCERNING SELF-DEFENSE! I’LL BE DAMNED IF I TAKE ANY ORDERS FROM SOME USELESS COP WHO DOESN’T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE PUBLIC AND IS JUST A GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE ANYWAY! Sorry about the rant but I had to let off steam. Everyone here knows my position on self-defense and it’s NON-NEGOTIABLE. NONE OF OUR RIGHTS ARE NEGOTIABLE FOR THAT MATTER! braveheart

  2. Anonymous says:

    They’ve lost it. Seriously, these people have completely lost their minds.

    What the hell kind of instructions are those??

    Oh, you might get beaten, raped, or murdered? Please put the gun down and just sit back and take it. The police will be there in a few minutes to help.


    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      New 9-11 Operators are not the brightest bulb on the tree. However, there are some good ones out there, after years of experience they get pretty good. I did some of that, in a fire house call in center, as every call is recorded, and people call up freaking out then hang up, and you need to keep replaying the call again, to get the address to dispatch. This one little shit kid would call every day and just say fire, fire..then hang up. This was before call tracing or tracking. 20+ yrs ago. Then you get some alarm call address at 3 in the morning out of a dead sleep, and they tell you the address. 5445 45th street 4th floor Apartment 5…. And at 3am in the morning.. Like wtf and ask “Can you say that again?” Write that address down. Keeps ya on your toes.

  3. Man on the inside says:

    The folks in the work force today have the same morals of the kids in school today (common core). There is no honor, integrity, common sense (in the case of this 911 operator), personal responsibility, or “can do” attitude. Know this every time you talk to your doctor, mechanic, roofer, barista, cab driver, fellow employee, boss, or church member. Unless they are over 40 or trained and raised by you or the kind of the folks that post here, they are useless idiots and will only get you injured or killed. Set your planning and prepping up for this unfortunate inevitable fact. It is like being in a sci-fi movie or something. Pick good team members. PRAY, PLAN, PREP, FORM TEAMS.

  4. Chainsaw says:

    Well thankfully granny did not listen to the liberal twot. If she did, the police would have been investigating a murder, not a break in.

    • the renegade braveheart says:

      Chainsaw, spot on. Granny did exactly right to ignore the affirmative action moron she was dealing with and she’s alive because she had some common sense.

  5. Jim in Va. says:

    You would end up being the mess the cops have to clean up. Better that the body bag be occupied by the burglers.

  6. Stan522 says:

    Don’t freaking put the gun down…… A serial burglar deserves to be shot…!

  7. At this rate of idiocy and growing self-defense liability, someday soon the best advice might become “shoot, shovel and shut up”.

    – Shane

  8. Confederate says:

    The dispatcher should be fired for endangering a citizen.

  9. buttcrackofdoom says:

    shoot FIRST, and ask questions NEVER!…..like the cops do

  10. buttcrackofdoom says:

    after reading this again, i’m SURE the dispatcher MEANT to say repeatedly, “put down the phone”, “yer gonna need TWO hands on that gun”….”steady now, take a deep breath, let it halfway out, and squeeeeeze the trigger.” send all warning shots downrange, center mass!

  11. ZenMonk says:

    i don’t call 911.

    i call .357magnum.


    • Genius says:

      My preference is 12ga. 3 inch magnum #4 buckshot 😉

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        Genius, what ya shooting Quail? Try tripple buck or 1 oz slugs every other round.

        • Genius says:

          ha ha WWTI, I hear ya but I shot a car door once with 00buck and it didnt penetrate. Slugs are good too but not as much coverage but a badass hole! The reason I like #4 buck is it is like 43 .22 cal balls at 1280 fps. hitting you at once. I do have 2 1oz. slugs in the mag too just fer fun 🙂

          • Smokey says:

            43 .22 caliber hits is going to put you down in a big hurry.

            No. 1 buck is good too, you do from about 10 .33 caliber rounds to 19 .30 caliber rounds, same velocity and pattern.

            Better probability of a serious hit down a dark hallway, the more the better.

          • Plan Twice, Prep Once says:

            I agree, #4 buck is best for home defense. Absolutely effective at normal distances within a home, but doesn’t have the penetration to put people in other rooms or neighbors at as great a risk. People should not be confused, #4 buck vs #4 bird shot are completely different and should not be confused. Do your homework.

            The police and military like 00 buck because they often have to take the fight to the streets at greater distances, and they don’t seem to care about bystanders as much! As a homeowner I don’t see myself chasing anyone down the street.

            I do have a couple slugs on the ammo belt that hangs next to the shotgun. Slugs provide superior penetration if the need ever arises, they’ll even stop a bear, or kill a car engine, as well I can hold a five inch group with slugs at 75 yards if extra range were ever needed. A shotgun is truly an amazing tool.

            • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

              I think #4 shot will bounce and ricochet off the walls and floors like a shooting gallery. lol.. Although if you need to worry about wall penetration like living in an apartment or have wood walls with close neighbors; what every works for you. I want massive impact. Here in Florida we have cement block walls filled with concrete and rebar. Unless I am shooting a .50 cal or armor piecing black tips which can be iffy, but for home defense here, about any gun or bullet will work. Let er’ Rip!!

        • lastmanstanding says:

          No one walks away from a centered blast from #4 buck.

          No one.

      • ZenMonk says:

        a revolver works best for self defense during a home invasion.


      • the renegade braveheart says:

        Genius, that’s exactly who I call and her name is “Bertha” [Stevens Model 320 12gauge pump with the same load you mentioned.] WWTI, I’ll take your advice on the 000 and 1 oz. slugs. Bertha does like some variety in her diet.

  12. notlikemostpeeps says:

    I got a question. If the powers that be are so much against people defending themselves, why haven’t they made marital arts classes illegal?

  13. She should have told the bad guy: “I’m armed, but the 911 operator sure isn’t… and I’ll bet he’s got a lot of dough in his wallet.”

    Everyone loves an old lady with a gun. Except we don’t know the whole story. Maybe she was in hysterics. Shooting people is bad. I would most certainly advise a scared old lady running around with a bad hip and loaded gun to chill. You people are so anxious to shoot one another!

    It was a STORY, about an helpless lady defending herself with a .38 snub. The police were stoked! Oh, meanwhile, there’s a whole slew of shit hitting the fan as I rant.

    So whatcha know about that?

  17. Genius says:

    One day there was a man in NYC, he was tired of all the traffic and crime etc. so he moved to Montana and bought a big ranch in the middle of nowhere. One day he was out on the porch and spotted a little speck of dust out on the horizon. He thought nothing of it and went back in the house. A while later he went back out on the porch and saw it was a man on a horse riding up towards him. A while later the man on the horse showed up and knocked on the door. The man in the house answered “Hi can I help you” the man on the horse said “I just came to invite you to a little neighborhood party were havin” NYC man said” thats cool I’m all alone out here, a party sounds fun” The cowboy said ” ya gonna be some drinkin” the NYC guy said ” thats good, cant party without some drinking” the cowboy said “ya gonna be sum good eatin too” the NYC man said “great I havent had a good meal in a while” then the cowboy said” ya gonna be some sex too” the NYC man then said ” cool get drunk and laid sounds great” Then the cowboy said ” ya probably gonna be some fightin too” The NYC man replied “thats cool Im from the bronx I like a good fight, but Ive been out doin chores all day do you think I should get cleaned up first?” The cowboy replied “Ehhh it don’t much matter, just goin to be you and me” 🙂

    • Warchild Dammit! says:

      Genius,good going again with info dump yesterday,was wondering why you like the aquaponics better,the reason I like the pvc standing hydro unit is can be on wheels,fits in small spaces balconies ect.,what makes the aqua easier enuff for you to mention it?

      • Genius says:

        Hi WD, You are correct about the portability of the hydro system where aqua is not so portable. When I was looking into both systems I noticed the hydro system needed to have various things added like nutrients and various other things that werent too cheap. The advantage of aqua over hydro is you dont need to add anything but feed the fish (which is an additional food source) and pretty simple to set up. As long as you keep the ph level in the zone (7 or so) it will perform outstandingly. What I built was a 8×10 greenhouse with a U-shaped trench about 3 feet deep and 2 feet wide. When you opened the door you walked onto a dirt platform with the trench surrounding it. I lined the trench with pond liner and had a 4 outlet air pump with airating stones equally spaced. I had a small submersible pump to circulate the water from the trough to the trays above. I made the trays directly above the trough supported by 4×4’s framed with 2×4’s and plywood lined with pond liner. The troughs were framed with 2×6’s around the top and had plywood lids on hinges with screened air vents. I made the plant trays out of 2 inch styrofoam and to prevent the crumbs from making a mess I used waterproof tape around the edges and used aquarium silicone to coat the pot holes. The ratio of fish to gallons of water is about 2 gallons per fish. Put some plastic plants that are fairly dense in it on one end so the fry have a place to hide and not get eaten. Endless fish and veggies and no other things to buy. You can make the same thing in your house with 55 gallon drums or large aquariums or water tanks. Fish poop is the best plant food bar none! Back when I was a kid I knew a guy that grew pot plants that were 7-8 feet high in a short growing season in a semi arid place. He would never tell anyone how he did it. Years later I found out he used to bury carp he caught in the river in his soil lol. If you have the space I feel aqua is the way to go but if you need portability hydro may be better. Hope this helps.

        • Genius says:

          That is 2 gallons per 6-8oz. of fish. That is about as dense as you want it, no more. If your going to have a fast growing fish use 3 gallons per 1/2 pound of fish..

          • Warchild Dammit! says:

            Thanks for update Genius,while may not be for me know some folks might like that kind of system,always good to have info. to pass around.

          • tinker says:

            genius and warchild- I too have converted my dirt based greenhouse to hydroponics. We just can’t get anything to grow in dirt outside or inside. Can’t pour enough water on the plants. Soooo, we are using Kratsky methods to grow. No pumps.. air or water. So far, it’s working good. Next, we are going to buy a UBC container and do aquaponics. Tomorrow, we have two solatube skylights being installed in the built-on greenhouse to get more full spectrum light. By golly, that ought to do it! We see a storm comin” and it’s a SHIT storm! Be prepared, fat and sassy through all this! Even have my kids interested and building hydroponics. Next spring, gonna build a hoop-house outside and stick more hydroponics or aquaponics in there. Good luck to all on this site…

    just shut the dispatcher up …. tell ’em you’re a Republican – then worry about the cops shooting you

  19. jbird says:

    My Dad is 85 years old and lives alone. He bought this motion detector/alarm at Home Depot. You just put it in front of your door and once the “beam” or whatever it is detects an intrusion it goes off. The freakin thing is loud. Scare the crap out of me. So I went and bought myself one. $20 bucks. It’s made by Doberman Security. Nifty little thing. Worth the $20 bucks.

    • Merree says:

      My dad has a motion detector. It has four legs and snarls too.

      • TPSnodgrass says:

        Cannot beat a four legged “motion detector”, we have two, very large,with rather poor attitudes, in addition to the alarm system and residents who aren’t receptive at all to intruders. Hell, all of us in the family have poor attitudes towards intruders, thugs/thugettes, and the other detritus of society.

        • Unlike a lot of fellows here, I don’t have big mean dogs, just big dogs that can hear an ant fart at 200 yards. No BS, my boys –and girl– hear the wrong car door slam shut a quarter mile up the road, and they’re wide awake. This wakes my wife, who is a light sleeper, who wakes me, who wakes up very fast.

          Heck, I’m guess the one with the surly attitude would be ME 🙂

    • jerrytbg says:

      One of many on the market…
      Harbor Freight has a nifty little “driveway alarm” , real cheap…
      multiple units can be useful… the receiver has a sticker on the back that indicates what channel it receives… multiple transmitters with one receiver… that’s pretty cool…or two receivers, North & South… the possibilities are only limited to your imagination.

      The transmitters are waterproof…I’ve hosed them down so I know… 🙂

      Good hunting…bad guys that is…

      • Genius says:

        If you need a long range alert may I suggest the dakota alert system. I use one on a gate 1/2 mile away and it works flawlessly. They make several models just be sure to get the sensor with the telescopic antenna. It has 4 different alerts (zone1 thru 4) so you can monitor up to 4 zones. Use theyre handheld walkie talkie or base unit or a scanner to monitor the sensors. They also make a magnetic sensor that only detects vehicles (kinda pricey) The prices vary a lot so look on ebay and compare. I am planning on writing a 2 piece article on solutions for prepping and security and force multipliers, I will let you all know when I have it done. 🙂

        • Justice says:

          Hey Genius, (that’s what my dad used to always call me when I was a teenager, but I digress)I look forward to reading your articles on solutions for prepping and security and force multipliers.

          I just spent a small fortune upgrading my doors to solid core and putting high security locks on all my doors including some interior doors. But I was looking for something to protect my solar setup. The dakota alert system seems like the perfect solution. Thanks for the heads up!

      • Stan522 says:

        What does it run on…..? Battery?

        • Genius says:

          Yes Stan it uses 6 AA batteries for the sensor and an ac adapter or the built in rechargeable battry for the walkie talkie reciever. The batteries will last about 9 months on the sensor depending on use so its pretty efficient.

        • jerrytbg says:

          Hey Stan,

          The transmitter’s run on 9v with an advertised range of 400ft., actual range is about 275′ to 300′.
          The receivers run on three C cells or 6v wall transformer. As for failure rate… I’ve been lucky, not one and I have multiple sets.

          To lower the vol on the low audio setting I put a 1k resistor in the lead to the peizo buzzer…just loud enough to wake me.

          Over all, I think they’re pretty good and for the price, $15 per set. It’s a no brainer.

        Jerry. You can bury the driveway pressure sensors in the tire tracks, and if somebody is driving up the road and drives over them, the alarm goes off. Anyway to give you a half minute notice is plenty of time to get your battle rifle.

      • ZenMonk says:

        great idea

        the product has a 25% fail rate though.

        you get what you pay for.

        this seems to be industry wide low standard though for anything under a $100. dollars. made in china.

        i’d suggest a second backup unit for the same security zone.

        install a second unit from a competing company.

        1Byone Safety Driveway Patrol Infrared Wireless Home Security Alert Alarm System Kit One Receiver and Two Sensors Type QH-0338

        And install the batteries for black outs.

        2 eyes are better than one.

        p.s. i put mine battery powered units in my open ground floor windows. works beautifully and i sleep like a baby. it catches the occasional wandering neighborhood dog, deer and raccoons moving around at night outside my bedroom window.

    If we didnt live in a time when everyone was “entitled” and out of work, or was taught that working is for evil capitalist pigs , we wouldnt have home invasions .
    Take away moral fortitude and dignity all you have left is a sorry ass excuse of a human being. This is what the current administration is pushing. jackass’s , en mass.
    If your nieghbor has more , then take it.
    The guy down the street seems well off , kill him .
    What the hell ?
    During the depression , theft and pety crime went down and as i understand WAY down. people still had a moral direction , this will get outta hand for long .
    Watch as we lose more freedoms as the government seeks to take control of everyday police work and policy.
    The more government programs to stop this shit , the worse it will get.
    Sorry ass bastards……

  21. When I first read this headline, I couldn’t help but think, “hey, is the dispatcher in on the robbery?” and then I read that it was in my home State of Florida. Ah yes, where we have the most genius dispatchers on the planet. Self important nobodies attempting to inject themselves into the situation as they really want to believe their worthless opinions and even more worthless points-of-view from the location of a fucking call center, actually means something to a person being victimized.

    Anyway, the moral of this story is very simple:

    Don’t call the police until after the intruder in your home has been neutralized as being of any threat. That’s fancy speak for, “Shoot that fucker dead, make sure he’s dead and disarmed, have a smoke, calm down a minute and be sure to have your story straight, then dial 9-1-1.”, because remember, the police don’t “protect” anyone. The police are the clean-up crew after the crime has been committed, nothing more. As you already should know, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

    • Warchild Dammit! says:

      Do not speak with police at all without attorney present and have spoken with said attorney first,go to hospital as you are shell shocked and grieved you had to shoot someone to save yourself(no smirking or grinning!),when all is settled have a beer and celebrate as family members go thru song and dance about how their son/dad/brother whatever even though a hardened violent criminal was turning their life around!

      JoeRepublic, spot on. Response times for cops in my area have been up to 6-8 hours long on occasion.

    • MXLord327 says:

      Two old Mainers went hunting one day. One accidentally shoots the other in the leg, and the shooter calls 911 on his cell phone. “I just accidentally shot my friend, I think he might be dead.” 911 operator tells him “First, make sure he is actually dead.” Operator waits a few seconds, then hears three gunshots. Old Mainer comes back on the line and says, “Ok, he’s really dead now, what next?”

  27. yomama says:

    That ain’t nothing new! I remember calling 911 about a lady screaming rape outside on the street, (at the same time I was grabbing my gun and running out into the street) the dispatcher asked me If she was naked and asked if she was white or black? I said what the fuck? She then said call back after you find out what happened! And hung up on me! So I hung up and told a dude to get on the ground and eat dirt, or i’d shoot his balls off! Turned out it was a domestic dispute and I almost had to shoot them both. The cops showed up and almost arrested me, and I ended up on the ground with a knot on the back of my head where the cop punched me from behind. Still have it on the back of my head. They stole my gun and didn’t give it back. Now when I hear some body yelling for help, I wait until after they either become a corpse to call and report a dead body, but anonymously, and with a dope phone that I bought at the dollar store, not registered to anyone and I didn’t activate at my home or near my home and I keep the battery out of it, until I need it then take it back out after using it. Never trust the police! Fuck the Police!

    There are 3 million preppers. That makes us .9% of the population. 99.1% of the population are brainless fucking idiots. Think about that.

      Acid– so much for your rants about OLD PEOPLE!! NOW, you all of a sudden LIKE old people? Maybe you should think before a rant, huh? Us “old people” whom you think are useless aren’t useless… we UNINTENTIONALLY may save your bacon some day. Personally though, I won’t give you the very valuable information inside my skull that I’ve stored for over 58 years. As a machinist and inventor for a 38 year career, I’ve forgotten more than you will ever know. I have parts in space, in the human body ( heart valves and veinous grafts including the WORLDS smallest artificial vein ) and more. So PLEASE be quiet about us “useless old people”. When YOU can say YOU have done something great, please share that knowledge and SKILL with other small minded young people. Allow me to ask– “What the Hell have YOU contributed to society?”

  39. Infidels-r-us says:

    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, “Come on,man, how about giving a retired person a break”? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a Nazi. He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a “doughnut eating Gestapo”. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn’t care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, “I Love Obama”. I try to have a little fun each day now that I’m retired. It’s important to my health.

    Fortunately all sheriff depts do not feel this way..In our county crime has picked up and the community had a meeting two nights ago to discuss it. The church was full. The duly elected sheriff told the crowd ” my deputies will get to your home as quickly as possible but you have to be prepared to defend yourself and your home.” I carry a weapon everywhere I go and I advise citizens to do the same.” You will not find any of his 911 operators instructing people to ”put the gun down, LMAO.
