So we had our generator stolen this Saturday. About 3 miles up the road from us a corpse was found. Several of our neighbors have been broken into, had cars stolen and a meth house burned down about 4 miles down the road from us. This is a community whose worst crime was the neighbors dog crapping in someone else yard. Today we as a community got together and have initiated an aggressive patrol and watch. We will be using remote access game cameras, random citizen patrols. Basically the people around us asked the Sheriff for help. The Sheriff told those people "you are on your own." So we are. Our community will soon get this criminal activity under control. Why?Because we all recognize that the police are not there for us, we must do this ourselves. The point is simple, my community now fully understands that they are responsible for their safety and security. They have learned first hand from the Sheriff and Deputies that they are not responsible and there is nothing they can do for us except show up when we call... and as I noted the FAST response times are around 15 minutes and the average is 45 minutes. This weekend we are going to be conducting home security audits as well as home defense training. I will be heading up firearms training and familiarization along with a retired Marine. We the People are uniting to save our community. Maybe we can get the community of the United States.
