If they find the coach was too comfortable, is this entrapment? Why does this remind me of Goldie Locks?

Wouldn’t it just be trespassing or B&E if the items were not taken out of the house?

I guess they forget to read the manual on burglary, “best practices.”

"Wouldn’t it just be trespassing or B&E if the items were not taken out of the house?"

He could just claim to be an undocumented resident. The owners would then probably have to give him a bedroom and make him dinner.

Items were taken out of the house.

Just not by the man sleeping on the couch. Some partner; leaves his friend asleep on the couch to be caught.

I personally wouldn’t kill for pay, but I’d kill someone for kicking in my back door.

“You’d kill a sleeping person for $500?”

I would be afraid that if I woke him up he would bang his foot on my coffee table and sue me for everything I was worth.

Since homeowners have no more rights to defend themselves, it is becomming better to “shovel and shut up” because anyone wanting to take any action against a criminal these days is far worse in the eys of what we laughingly call “the law” these days than the criminal themselves.....
