Shouldn't that principle apply to prisons, too?
OF COURSE it’s in the U.K. By now, that pretty much goes without saying.
I agree. It’s a shame he put up barbed wire when razor wire does a much better job.
Two hundred years of history, unhampered by progress.
Stupid judge. Just order him to erect an electric fence to keep them away from the barbed wire...
The concept, like allowing the illegal invasion, the election of Obama or any other Liberal thought is that even though it is wrong, it’s OK.
This is the demise of Western culture.
Wrong is wrong, and in California, if you do three (3) serious wrongs, you are out (or, in for life). Liberals oppose this, including Rev. Wright.
Razor wire is for pu####s. Put down claymores. To hell with the neighbors.
Bill Malcolm, 61, took the drastic step of installing the wire in a bid to prevent burglars raiding his tool shed and ransacking his vegetable plots.
Intruders have struck three times in four months, stealing more than £300 worth of hardware, including spades, forks and hoes as well as destroying his potato patch.
The fed-up gardener surrounded his 600 square yard site in Worcester with a single strand of barbed wire, which stood no more than waist high.
But his local council declared the security measure was a health and safety hazard and warned him they would forcibly remove it if he refused.
The council members should be made to remove all the locks from their homes.
One thing I thought about and it may exist in some form is a bouncing betty that doesn't have a charge but would pop up and intensely spray money trap dye or prussian blue at a short range. That would help in the burbs to know if a nosey neighbor has been too nosey.
Not just the UK. Right here in the southwest, too. Can’t use barbed wire for my fence if not zoned for agriculture.
Claymores. Bouncing Bettys. And a in-ground sprinkler-system with a choice of extreme Hot Pepper Sauce (500K Scovilles and up. . . ) or Kerosene and a sparker. . . .
Now THAT is Home Security (evil grin)
which is highly respective of private property.
Yes, this viewpoint of protecting thieves is anti-God.
We don’t have that restriction in Virginia...
...at least I HOPE we don’t!
I use skunk scent in the Bouncing Betties on MY property.
Northwest, too. OMG, it's a CONSPIRACY, wonder who I can blame???
I vote for land mines.
Last week we learned that gardeners on these “counsel” plots have already been required to remove the locks from their tool-sheds....
Well isn’t it OBVIOUS?
Blame George W. Bush, of course!
