    Russia farmer convicted of planting landmines in field


    A Russian farmer has been convicted of planting landmines around his field to ward off trespassers.
    Alexander Skopintsev, from the eastern region of Primorye near China's border, laid the three devices on his land after building them in his garage.
    The 73-year-old had apparently been concerned about the frequent theft of potatoes from his farm.
    He was arrested after an intruder set off one of the tripwire-style mines in August and was injured in the blast.
    Skopintsev was convicted for the unlawful construction and storage of weapons and received a two-and-a-half year suspended sentence.
    "Skopintsev testified that he had prepared the explosive devices to protect his garden against thieves," regional prosecutors said in a statement reported by RIA-Novosti news agency.

    Vodka would make this seem like a good idea.

    Just because a Russian farmer can now own his farm doesn't mean the produce isn't still the property of the proletariat collective. Is it any different in the good ole USA? I'd really like to keep the midnight thieves out of my orchard during fall harvest so I could make a profit. Now, where do you suppose I could buy some C4 and pressure detonators in bulk? Surely in a free country I could off the burglars, right?

    I do believe that in many parts of America today, if a would-be burglar broke into your home and you met him holding a 12-gauge and just pumped a shell into the chamber and scared him so he ran and tripped going out the door causing him to fall down and injure his back, you could be sued for damages.

    Maybe this could catch on with the American farmers/landowners living within 5 miles or so of the Rio Grande!!
