....too bad the home owner didn’t have a 100 lb German Shepard to “watch him”. That intense stare with the shutting of the mouth type stare that tells you don’t move. *smiles*

Was he left there for a week?

Did the homeowner set the home on fire while he was there?

Did the homeowner try to park his car in the garage while he was tied up there?

No? He kinda got off easy then.

Unbelievable...Complains he was assaulted but has no clue at all the homeowner could have more easily just have shot him.

In this upside down PC world, the burgler-guy can probably sue the homeowner and win custody of the garage and the house attached to it.

that would have been the best plan.

then put him in a lawn sized plastic bag and put him in a dumpster.

The owner just forgot one thing, to turn the car on and leave the motor running.

***** “How awful. /sniff/” ****

I wouldn’t have tied him up... just marched him out back with a shovel and had him dig and dig and dig.... if the cops don’t show up... he would own that hole.

Then the work starts, firing up the tractor and back fill... 15 minutes out of my life that I would never get back.

I highly recommend shopping at your local hardware store to get some high test nylon tie straps. Don’t be satisfied with the smaller test types, go for at least 100 lb. test.

Put one on each wrist or ankle, and use a third to tie the two together, and whoever is going to be incapacitated.

There are times and places where you just don’t want to double tap, so you need a strong backup.

Poor baby. We caught a burgler in our Fraternity house back in the 60’s. We kept him for 3 days, doing chores, and then took him around campus on a dog leash, kicking him all the way. Then turned him over to the police.

In the state of Washington it is very clear that a burglar in your home can be shot with no questions asked. Heck, a few months ago some shop-keeper kept getting robbed so he started sleeping in his shop. Some kids broke in and in the midst of grabbing stuff the guy jumped out with his shotgun. The kids took off - he shot and killed one 50 feet from the shop - a few leather belts (or similar)that he had just stolen found by his body. Found not guilty. Although the last I heard the parents are looking into a civil penalty against the guy.

I sure hope this burglar can’t use some defense like “unlawful imprisonment” or something. I wonder if you said “I am making a citizen’s arrest” might help!? I would imagine catching a guy and detaining him while you call and wait for the cops is one thing. Tossing him into the cellar for a few days is another.

There are all sorts of possibilities, like you shot and incapacitated (maybe), but you have to walk away to get to a phone, or to tend to someone who is injured.

They are real handy especially if they practically need bolt cutters to remove.

Sounds like the burglar’s day job is with a union.

And a LOT quicker to use than rope or a lamp cord.

I strongly recommend against trying to tie someone up with rope, wire, or tape, because it is extremely hard to do it right in such a way as to minimize the chance of escape.

My preferred tool is 175 lb. test dual lock nylon zip ties. Even if they are a muscle man on PCP, they would tear their arms out of their sockets before they would bust out of those.

Importantly, even if they have a confederate who will help them out of those, they are very hard to cut.
