No no no, this is all wrong.
According to retired Justice Stevens, you should arm yourself with the Constitutionally protected Cell Phone!

During the investigation, the homeowner noticed two TV sets were missing. One was located in the backyard of the home and the other in the basement where Jones was held.

Nice to see a dad of a thug who has wisdom like this and the ability to express it. That young man is very fortunate to be alive and the dad is fortunate, too.
