    Jacob . . . PRICELESS!!! Now all you need is Claymores around the perimeter, a nice accent to the landmines!

    I have installed a moat, security cameras, land mines, and guard dogs. I do all this because U.S. 62 is a paved highway that brings CRIME in from the BIG CITY. It’s true. Nancy Vail told me so.

    People in Knox County are awfully nervous about all the recent increase in robberies/burglaries in Mount Vernon, Fredericktown and the S.E. portion of the county (Bladensburg/Martinsburg).

    If people watch the indictments every month, they will see that arrests are being made for burglary/robbery each month; but if they don’t watch, they don’t know that progress is being made, and many of are the opinion that LE isn’t making any headway in arresting the people committing these crimes.

    It makes sense to me that if LE would simply announce when they arrest a robber or group of robbers, that people’s minds would be better set at ease – and more would realize how hard LE is working and the successes they’re experiencing……I think the meet with the FBI agent, Sheriff and others was a great start in helping make the community aware, but that they could take it another stap forward and communicate with the public when various arrests are made.

    Also, I believe the media is given copies of all arrests made for their info and publication; couldn’t they, too, help in this regard, and report when robbery/burglary suspects are arrested?

    Thoughts?

    A loaded gun, 3 dogs and lock everything we can, and had AEP put a security liht up (we have to pay for monthly). We have called the police many times and even told them where the people live that were snoping around our property at night and they are not able to do anything! We have had things stolen in the past along with our neighbors and nothing is done.

    with all the recent burglaries in knox,coshocton,and licking counties and the unsolved murder of gene davis,and the fact none of these crimes are getting solved, and there are no undercover vehichles patrolling the countryside at night, tells me one thing!. I am right in dueing everything i can to protect my life my property and my belongings!. WE HAVE LOADED GUNS AT ARMS REACH, TWO MAN EATING DOGS WITH A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 325 ILBS AND OVER 800LBS OF PRESSURE IN THIER JAWS!, WE BOTH ARE NORMALLY PACKING WHEN OUTSIDE DUE TO THE FACT WE WERE CONFRONTED LAST YR BY THREE BLACK MEN WHICH EVENTUALLY THREATED OUR LIFES, WE LET THE LAW DIRECTOR TAKE OVER AND THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING !, SO MYSELF AND SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS HAVE DONE THE SAME THING TO PROTECT OUR SELVES AND OUR PROPERTIES. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT AND DEFEND OUR SELVES AT ALL TIMES!.

    NONE OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AT THE MEETING THE OTHER NIGHT IN BLADENSBURG NEW ANYTHING ABOUT THE CASTLE DOCTRINE!, I ENCOURAGE ALL RESIDENTS IN THESE COUNTIES TO READ THE DOCTRINE ON THE INTERNET AND GET A GOOD UNDERSTANDING ON HOW IT WAS WRITTEN TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE. THE COP SAID IF YOU FEEL THREATENED YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT YOURSELF!.

    IF SOMEONE ENTERS MY HOUSE ILLEGALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT I WOULD FEEL THREATENED AND I WILL DEFEND MYSELF BY SHOOTING THEM MULTIBLE TIMES INSURING DEATH!, THIS FALLS UNDER THE CASTLE DOCTRINE, THE GRAND JURY WILL REVIEW IT AND SEE I FELT THREATENED AND RULE IT WAS JUSTIFIABLE, I WOULDNT HAVE TIME TO DECIDE IF THEY HAVE A GUN OR A KNIFE OR IF THEY ARE GOING TO GRAB MY TV AND RUN!, WHICH YOU CANT SHOOT THEM IN THE BACK IF THEY ARE RUNNING AS STATED BY SHERRIFF BARBERS GROUP!. SO WHY LOOSE YOUR TV OR YOUR LIFE OR ANYTHING PERIOD!, SHOOT TO KILL BECAUSE THEY HAVE ENTERED YOUR HOUSE ILLEGALLY AND YOU HAVE TO ASUME THE WORST!, AND THEREFORE YOU FEEL THREATENED AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR SELF!, BY SHOOTING THEM DEAD. DEAD MEN CANT TALK BUT THEN AGAIN THEY ENTERED ILLEAGLLY AND TOOK THE CHANCE OF GETTING CAUGHT OR NOT SO I FEEL THEY HAVE KNOW RIGHTS!, ACCORDING TO THE LAW!.

    WAKE UP PEOPLE THE SHERRIFFS DEPT HAS MORE CRUISER’S ON THE ROADS DURING THE DAY WHEN THEY SHOULD HAVE MORE ON PATROL AT NIGHT!, ITS THE SAME WAY IN COSHOCTON COUNTY AND IM NOT SURE ABOUT LICKING COUNTY. THEY CANT BE EVERYWHERE REGAURDLESS OF THE NUMBER OF CRUISER’S ON THE ROAD, SO WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE RIGHT TO PROTECT OR LOVE ONES AND OUR PROPERTY AND BELONGINGS, ITS JUST TIME TO EXECUTE OUR RIGHTS. THE GENE DAVIS MURDER HAS A LOT OF PEOPLE SCARED,ON EDGE, AND THREATENED!, MORE AND MORE PEOPLE DAILY ARE LOADING THIER GUNS. I’VE TALKED WITH TWO VICTIM’S AND THEY BOTH SAID THE DEPUTY’S FILLED OUT REPORTS AND WENT ON THIER WAY!, WELL THINK ABOUT IT!, WHAT ELES CAN THEY DO, THEY DONT TAKE FINGER PRINTS, THEY DONT LOOK FOR TRACKS IN THE GROUND, THEY DONT DRIVE THE AREA LOOKING FOR CLUES, THEY DONT SET UP WATCHES IN HIGH CRIME AREAS, BUT THEY WANT YOU TO WRITE ALL YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS DOWN, YOU MIGHT RECOVER YOUR THINGS BUT IT DOESENT REALLY HELP SOLVE CRIMES ALL THEY REALLY NEED IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEMS STOLEN!, AND YOU CAN IDENTIFY YOUR THINGS!. ITS A NO-BRAINER!, PROTECT YOUR SELVES IN ANY WAY YOU CAN!.

    I moved to the least inhabited place where I know who the nuts are and avoid them. I can see them coming from a distense, but anymore, even family members can become a threat, usually more a mental one, than a physical one.

    What a utopian society we live in? Quite sad.

    Nothing more then when I had someone try to break in my home several months ago at 5:00 A.M. A 45 ACP and one mean little Schnuazer.

    I am just always aware of my surroundings, making sure my car is locked and nothing valuable is inside, my door is locked. My neighbors live on both sides of me, I feel safe, I have a very heavy flash light with a long black handle, and if need be, can knock someone out!
