    home invasion in Wauwatosa

    http://www.wauwatosanow.com/news/112933514.html

    But it's a safe community, a Nice Place, where things like this Don't Happen, so nobody would need a gun to defend herself, right? And even if something happened, the police are right there to stop it & protect people, right?

    A resident of the 4100 block of North 93rd St. heard knocking at her door at 11:28 am Dec. 28. She was expecting visitors, so she ignored it until the knocking became incessant.

    The man at the door said he was there from a tree service, but she had not made an appointment. He asked to use her bathroom before leaving, but she said no and started shutting the door. He pushed it back open forcing her to fall back into a closet. He grabbed her by the shoulders and demanded money.

    She was pushed down the stairs and he forced her to take him through the house looking for jewelry and other valuables. When she screamed, he threatened to hurt her.

    Eventually, she hid in a closet while he continued to search the house. When she believed he was gone, she exited and called police.
    In a case police think is related, he tried to pull the same thing on another woman but her storm door was locked, so when he tried to force his way in she closed the inner door & called police.

    If he showed up here... well, I think he'd take no for an answer real fast, and never even think about asking to use the bathroom (common to 2 of these attacks/invasions). Besides, I keep the storm doors locked. I know I've prevented one person from breaking in that way (tried to open the door while I was standing there talking with him), and there are several ticked off door-to-door solicitors because I won't open the screen door for them.

    Man, 24, charged with stalking ex for months

    http://www.sheboyganpress.com/apps/p...0101/110107101

    Over the ensuing weeks, the woman’s car was keyed four times, causing more than $4,000 in damage. Once she found the phrase “Want to play” was carved into the vehicle after she received text messages from an unknown number with the same phrase. One messages said there would be consequences for not playing, and another referenced a recent visit the woman made to a wine bar.

    Here too.

    The Everest Metro Police Department needs your help finding three men who invaded a home in Weston and took electronics and money.

    The home invasion happened January 7 at approximately 12:30 a.m, at 1400 block of Daley Avenue, in the Village of Weston.

    Three males entered this residence and one of them displayed a hand gun. There were five adult victims in the residence and two of them sustained injuries.

    The intruders did take some electronics and money from the victims before fleeing the residence. We believe the males maybe white or Hispanic based on preliminary descriptions given by the victims. Their identity was concealed by clothing wrapped around their faces.

    The suspects were wearing baggy, dark colored clothing. The first suspect was about 5’9”, slim build and about 20 years old. He did have some black facial hair. The second suspect had a larger build, was about 6’00” and 200lbs. The third suspect was about 5’11”, with a slim build and about 20 years old.

    Police do not believe this was a random act.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Everest Metro Police Department at (715) 359-4202

    With all the delays now, driving is almost as quick, and I get to keep my gun.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    I figure a drive that takes 6 hours is about the same time as flying. Longer than that, flying is faster. Personally, I'd rather drive anyway.

    Where the heck are you guys flying that it takes so long? For in-country flights you only need to be there a little ahead of time and if you're experienced with it, security only takes a few annoyingly intrusive minutes.

    If it's not less than one state away I'm flying. I can be in Texas in 3.5-4 hours if I fly out of Madison and with way less stress. 5 hours to L.A and about 4 to NYC; once again, including airport time. Try that driving. That's not even considering the price of fuel. If you book months ahead of time you can get nice airline tickets pretty darn cheap.

    Do I hate the fact that I can't bring a firearm? Yes. Do I hate the security? Yes. Unfortunately for work and play, it's just too convenient.

    I live in the country but generally carry my .45 while at home. A .45 is a great cure for the times when the door may just "blow open"! Scumbags know that just plowing through a door with 2 or 3 "friends" will catch anyone inside off guard.

    I like protias as much as Spartacus annoys me, which is a lot. Protias posts remind us of just how many of these incidents really do happen that we don't even here about. On the contrary if folks like Spartacus were too prevalent on this forum, I would be gone in a heartbeat.

    Paul, great post on Joe Zamudio. I had never heard his story or seen any of those interviews. A true sheepdog.
