    I would say it's hearing more than anything else, I have sixteen cats (Yep, sixteen) but these are "working" cats here on the farm and I have a good reason for having them. That part doesn't matter but I have two that are approaching 20 years old...

    Here we go again with another well worn tale! "The Sheriff told me to shoot" is one of the most common but that too is utter nonsense! In the first place no law officer nor the Sheriff can give you the right to shoot someone and a Sheriff who would...

    That covers it pretty well, as I have been saying all along just use common sense. A person is within their right in most locations to confront even a gas thief while armed (as long as the gun was legally owned) and also to use that gun as a means...

    No one anywhere suggested not standing up to them, if so please point out where? Just use common sense and don't do something dumb that instead let's the perp come out on top, plus possibly subjecting someone to civil liability and/or possible jail...

    It usually goes that way, people like feel good stories and tend to get a bit ruffled if someone points out possible flaws, however in real life that kind of thing usually doesn't go so smoothly. We have probably all heard of cases where a normally...

    I suppose the dye or Mercaptans would likely be considered more of a prank than a booby trap and while not likely to cause legal problems unless someone was injured, every situation is different with many unknowns until the event actually happens so...

    That would probably work as long as you didn't identify by name, address, etc and called them a suspect and not a thief.

    I bet they can if injured by a booby trap! BTW, you dye device is still a booby trap and it doesn't matter where the perp is hit! Like I said in another post it's easy to dispute me but in court it would be another matter.

    Unfortunately it is not on them, the no trespassing sign is a very good idea because it makes it illegal for them to be on the property and they can even be charged with that. The "not responsible for accidents" sign however is a real no-no, first...

    Unfortunately that too is a booby trap and unfair that it may seem (unfair it is actually) it would be illegal and a very dangerous thing to do. If the perp is injured in any way, hit in the eyes for instance, or even just wanted to try and collect...

    The problem with that kind of deterrent is the thief can then resort to cutting the hose to the tank, a lot easier to do than it might seem on some cars and on most trucks it's quite simple.

    The problem with booby traps is that they couldn't care less who they trap! An innocent person can get caught due to circumstances the owner of the trap could not foresee so there is much more to it than fairness. Obviously it would take a very...
