    All that needs to happen is legality of killing anyone who walks on your property without retribution. Basically if you walk into my yard you will be shot if considered a threat and this is how it should be everywhere.

    My fully trained German Shepherd takes up the slack if I leave the truck unlocked. He will not step aside to allow a stranger to steal from daddy`s vehicle. A thief would absolutely have to kill him to enter my truck.

    If They Started Chopping Fingers Off These Thieves, I Bet There Would Be A Whole Lot Less Stealing, That's What They Do In Some Countries.....

    Anyone caught stealing should be a target.

    If the cars had been locked they would have probably broken the windows to get what they wanted.
