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."

Some lawyer will snuff that out.
Probably will argue it's akin to a "spring trap"; the old arrangement
of setting up a shot/gun to ventilate anyone coming in through a window.

It will definitely get outlawed if someone amps up that electric barbed
wire enough that it would be a real crime-stopper.

Yeah,it is very revealing but with an obvious racial slant. Don’t you think the white Missouri serial killer should be on there too?

The site is used to raise awareness of "urban" crime regardless of the race of perpetrator.

The site administrator explains everything here.

You speak to SE Florida with that post. The rest of the state is pretty decent!

Unfortunately, it is true Central FL is going downhill. And there is alot of gang related crime coming in—most of the perpetrators and victims seem to have Hispanic surnames and questionable citizenship status!

Yeah, I'd never heard of the site prior to this thread. Just gotta keep reminding myself that there are white scumbags out there as well.

I have seen plenty of white AND black trash in my time.And lets not forget that a lot of Asians and Latinos aren’t exactly upstanding citizens either!

You can submit a link to a story to the website. So feel free to submit the serial killer. Fwiw, I’d never seen this site before today. I did submit a link to a story where a thug was shot and killed by a business owner.

Actually, I thought that most of the Hispanics coming into Central Florida were from Puerto Rico (ie US citizens). Nevertheless, there are much better places to live, places where the largest employer is not a six foot tall rat.

Nah. The “crime wave” came via New York/New Jersey (human trash gentrified out of New York were attracted by the mouse) and via the Carribbean (Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Haiti, etc.). This is why on top of being a mosquito filled swamp with ugly tract housing, Central Florida has a severe crime problem.

Can anyone give me some details on this area?

County Seat! site of welfare checks, welfare programs, welfare etc. Free government money! Apply within. Every county has one (a county seat that is). All are pretty much the same. Magnet for ‘free government money’. Which makes everything else ‘free’ as well! No earning incentive required....just show up....free government money! (ps the ‘stuff’ in your car is ‘free’ also...don’t bother locking it up)
