Homeowners: 'Someone Is Going To Get Hurt'
SANFORD, Fla. -- Families in a crime-ridden Central Florida neighborhood are arming themselves with shotguns and talking about adding electric barbed wire to stop thieves targeting their homes.
"Somebody is going to end up getting hurt," resident Andrea Fine said. "The homeowners are tense. We are all on edge. For the first time in my life I'm really scared to live in my home."

Smoking a few of the perps will be a good deterrent.
It sounds like the residents are at wits end, and are ready to do just that. More power to 'em.
welcome to the ‘hood. NORMAL people that live in this area need pit bulls and pistols.
I’m not familiar with that part of Florida - other than it’s near Orlando.
I’d have thought this area wouls be safe being that it’s far away from the crudy areas of Orlando.
Can anyone give me some details on this area?
it used to be ‘in the country’ and was mainly redneck, small time Florida. In other words, a great part of town. Now it’s got a burgeoning black community that doesn’t care about anything except drugs.
Baffled, is he? I'd suggest a greater presence in the area, but that's just me.
He could help the civilians by organizing neighborhood watch groups led by LEOs.
He could open his gun range and allow citizens full access for practice. That way there'll be no long, drawn-out court procedings.
Free ammo for the neighbors would help.
Hopefully, the right people get hurt.
These brazen criminals love passive crime measures. They insure that they can strike quickly and get away before the police get the 911 call.
Most criminals aren't afraid of being caught. The get out on bail, got to court and get a light or suspended sentence. My greatest fear is that trial lawyers are flocking like buzzards, waiting for the first body to drop.
My brother in law was a fire fighter at a Sanford station....... he said they were getting at least 30 calls a day!! It’s wild over there.
Paging Joe Horn and all like minded Americans!
We can spend money on all sorts of “worthwhile” governmental programs, as well as millions of people here illegally, but enough on public safety to protect our residents?
just callin’ a spade a spade ;)
sanford like all areas has its good and bad sections. not sure which part they are talking about but in general central florida has gone down the drain. i live 40 miles from sanford in daytona and we have a large transient population. every morning when you turn on the news you hear of another murder in an area you wouldn’t have imagined.
Central Florida is mostly an armpit. The only major metro not on the ocean or gulf (ie built in the middle of a swamp) that has been attracting human garbage for the past 25 years. There are still parts of Seminole and Lake counties that are OK, to say nothing of Winter Park in Orange.
Central Florida has become very popular with the underclass that has been gentrified out of New York City over the past 15 years as well.
Wow, that article on housing was great. Has it been posted as a stand-alone thread?
give us your tired your hungry your poor.....thats what it seems is on the sign at the state line. the state must be doing some heavy duty advertising around the country because they are coming in droves only to find it isn’t what it is all cracked up to be.
Good luck with the barbed wire. After my Washington, D.C. Capitol Hill house was burglarized for the third time, I tried to get barbed wire added to my backyard fence, only to be told that it is against the law in Washington, D.C. because “somebody might get hurt.” In other words, the criminals’ rights not to get hurt breaking into my property were more important than my right to be secure in my home. I moved to Virginia and have never looked back. Our Nation’s Capitol is designed for and run by criminals.
