WASECA A woman suspected of burglarizing a Waseca home is in jail after fleeing on foot from the shotgun-wielding homeowner, then being chased and caught by a police officer neighbor.
The male homeowner, who police did not identify, confronted Kotek with a 12-gauge shotgun. Kotek, armed with a knife found in the home, refused to be detained and tried to escape.
The homeowner struck her with the shotgun, knocking her to the floor. She got up and ran outside.

First thing I would do is shut off the lights.
Next thing I would do, fire up some cheezy 70’s porn soundtrack.
If that doesn’t creep out the intruder..
Yes they do, but it seems kind of stupid to me, stealing a knife to a gun fight.
But you need to add a disco ball with psychodelic lighting to your list.
If that doesn’t work, nothing will.
It would have to be one of those automatic things they had back then, set to turn and glitter when the music started.
I don’t normally keep that kind of music on-hand, but this idea has merit.
We have to stop this conversation, I’m creeping myself out! LOL
I said there were practical applications to amatuer psychology.
The only problem is in implementing the plan.
A perp would probably be too wired for this plan to work as well. But it something to consider, I suppose.
Scaring them away beats having to clean up the mess of shooting them anyday.
Probably too true.
Only way it would work is if there were autobars that dropped down to segment the house into ocked down areas.
Lights go out, bars come down to lock the place down and a modulated voice goes, “Would you like to play a game?”
Its a pity that the riot control grenades used by prison guards are not civilian-legal. That would add a whole new dimension to the game.
Tear gas and pepper bombs, it’d be great.
Then add some music.
I think we’d have our perp screaming in minutes.
One last addition — The Pink Floyd Laser Light show.
The perp would be disassociative very quickly.
Flat panel LED displays on the walls, those conformal things.
Have monsters run along the walls while laser lights spell horrible thing on surfaces.
Fog machine pumping in that nasty smelling fog to disorient the intruder.
It’d be awesome.
There used to be an Internet radio station that played music that had been used in adult movies, and while most, of course, was pure dreck, some was actually quite good.
Piero Umiliani (best known for Sesame Street’s Mah Nà Mah Nà), Ennio Morricone (spaghetti westerns) and Riz Ortolani, were a big part of European 1960s and 1970s jazz influenced film soundtracks, and their music was very inexpensive by US standards.
The same with a lot of Space Age and Bachelor Pad Pop, like Henry Mancini, Burt Bacharach, Ferrante & Teicher, Mexico’s Juan García Esquivel (just known as Esquivel!), etc.
Given the current political climate, we’d get busted for violating the perp’s 8th Amendment rights, no doubt.
Other than that I like it!
And when the police arrive to pick up the body, there is far less confusion if they were an “armed robber” than if they were “just a burglar”.
By stealing that knife from your kitchen, they just made it an open and shut case.
Especially here in NY where I am at.
Can’t stop the perp from ‘plying his trade’ apparently.
