    ...which is why you don't open your door to anyone you don't know especially at 1:30 AM. Have gun in your hand and assuming the door opens and people rush in start shooting.

    If your are dealing drugs and not doing the "right thing" this is the kind of trouble it brings .I aslso agree home invasions cant be random if they are there for certain things. you know.... you reap what you sew , karma what goes around comes around, do unto others as you have done to you ......ETC

    If you live in the El Vecino Apartments, a home security system is probably not a priority.

    I agree with Bob. The guy that talks about electronic home security is on drugs, by the time every one who needs to know... knows, the issue is history. A single shot 12 ga. usually does the trick, even if you miss it has the potential to change the color of your bvd's

    Bob, you are 100% correct! I work for an apartment complex here in town, and the officers I have spoken with always say the same thing, that home invasions almost never occur randomly, that people are targeted because of what is going on in their home. Also, in Colorado Springs, unless you are lucky enough to have a cop car literally ten feet away from your house, you are gonna be waiting for help for at least 15 minutes. This city is just getting more and more ridiculous.

    Good point Bob, the media makes it out that Home Invasions are random acts of violence...not hardly. Drugs are usually the main factor in these types of crimes...and in the chance that it is a "random" act chances are you know the person and you pissed them off to some degreee and they are going to come back at you with a vengence and rob you in order toget more drugs...bottom line, dont keep shady company, dont deal drugs, and be aware of who you piss off.

    I have to disagree. The best way to keep these guys out is to not be a drug dealer. Home invaders don't pick random houses. they go for places they know they will score drugs and cash. Plus they don't spend much time inside they are in and out in minutes. response time on a panic alarm is at least 8 minutes

    Let's see here in the past 48 hours in the news:Home invasion,Walgreens robbed,liquor store clerk stabbed, and a dry cleaner owner was shot to death. No, this isn't from Los Angeles in The LA Times, this is right here in our quaint little city. What is happening to us???
