A Christmas Wish for Burglars

By LSWCHP 4 January 2013 33

Three years ago I bought my eldest son a guitar for Christmas. I didn’t have much money, and it wasn’t a great guitar, but I taught him to play on it and he’s a helluva lot better than me now. I hoped he’d play the blues, but he’s a metal head like most kids these days. It doesn’t matter what he plays, I’m proud of him and it brings tears to my eyes to watch his fingers flying across the fretboard faster than I’ll ever manage.

But yesterday some rat faced, yellow skinned, stinking, green toothed scurrying vermin stole his guitar, God Damn them.

They stole a bunch of other things too. My daughters watch. Jewelery. A TV. And unbelievably, they scattered thumbtacks across the floor of my daughters bedroom, presumably hoping that she’d hurt herself when she walked into her room.

Dogs. I’d fight them all at once, snap their scrawny necks like twigs, and whistle while I worked. But it doesn’t seem likely that I’ll have that pleasure…

So I have a News Years wish for the scum who did this. I reckon they’d be smokers, and my wish for them is that the smoking increases. I hope they end up sucking down two or three packs of full strength durries every day.  And then in a few years time I hope they taste the blood in their mouths during the morning coughing session and feel a pang of fear. And after that, I hope their eventual end is long and slow and terribly painful.

What’s Your opinion?

I am sorry to hear that that stuff happened, and like many, I wish our justice system was much,much tougher on them.

I can partially relate to how you are feeling – Mrs Ryoma got distracted by a phone call one night while locking her bike up in our front courtyard. Naturally that left it outside, unlocked, and hey presto – it disappeared.

The worst thing is not so much the bike itself (we got it secondhand), but the feeling of being invaded. Mrs Ryoma is from Japan, probably the safest country on Earth, and so I didn’t hear the end of it for weeks. Of course I feel for her, and we did everything we could with the police,etc, but she’s now fretful about everything.

She now wants us to get a bamboo fence or two for the front courtyard, to sharpen the tops of it, and to (potentially) weave an electric fence through the middle of it, to be turned on at night. I myself would rather wrap said electric wire around the soft parts of the burglar’s anatomies, but I digress.
I don’t think we’d afford the power bill, and I’m sure the body corporate and landlord might have something to say about electric fences, too 😀

The sad thing is, having grown up in a reasonably rough environment myself, that over here in much of Australia, that such behaviour is not unexpected :(.

My old man often says “send them all to Tassie”. I don’t think the Taswegians deserve that, they have enough challenges to deal with, but Macquarie Island would work. And for the mongrel who tipped thumbtacks onto your daughter’s bedroom floor, to be dropped out of a plane into Antarctica naked sounds just the ticket.

Hopefully they overdose from the heroin they buy with the proceeds of crime.

scorpio63, families like this need to be visited by a team of rugby forwards early in the morning, have their arms and legs broken and told to leave Canberra.

Happy New Year and thank you Rose

Thieves broke into both of my sister’s properties (both work regular 9-5 jobs) more than 8 years ago. One got a dog thereafter which always barks and creates a rucus anytime a person sets within a foot of the place. Both have since had alarms installed with the accompanying advertisements on their windows and not a problem since.

I caught a thief at midnight once, attempting to break into vehicles in three streets droning up and down. He’s a career thief in his forties and has a few younger ones that accompany him in other vehicles. I was doing some work in a street when he droned up, parked in a driveway (brazen bugger) and as he tried breaking into a neighbour’s vehicle on the road, I turned my headlights on and startled him (highbeam). He walked towards me and I informed him that he was never to return. I know where the guy lives and who he uses to do his break and enters.

Local police in each state, particularly country cities know repeat offenders and their families yet little can be done until these offenders are either working full-time, charged and locked up to learn a lesson or grow old; with their sons taking over their careers.

Many of these adults have been thieving for their parents back in their primary school years; by the time they are in their 20’s and 30’s know every dirty trick in the book stealing and getting away with people’s property. These are the facts and until people fully implement at least two of the necessary security measures ie security alarms, dogs, cameras (which they should never have to do), these families will continue to get away with thousands of dollars worth of other peoples hard earned goods.

Families are mostly included, particularly the sons recruited to do their father’s dirty work.

As was the case with a neighbour’s break and enter. The son in primary school used to case the property up to 6 weeks beforehand. Once people speak with all of their neighbours after a break in, there are usually strong clues that lead to the description or identity of thieves.

My sisters after reflection and talking to neighbours had correctly identified their thieves.

The two teenage boys that broke into my sister’s place moved shortly thereafter. The other Thief (male in his 30’s) that broke into my other sister’s property was more difficult to prove.

I wish there was a “Like” button for this comment

welcome to the karma cafe
you get served…what you deserve

I haven’t lead an entirely virtuous life, but my son is only 14 and he’s a great kid. He didn’t deserve to have this happen to him.

ummmm…in my defense …I meant the crims …not your boy…but after that i’m thinking….hmmmm…maybe you too? I dunno? how’s your karma bank looking? best wishes 🙂

Get an alarm, can’t vouch for them enough. If you cannot afford one now, buy one of those fake light and siren contraptions as an interim measure.

Lets hope they get caught and face the full force of the law in the ACT. We all know how severe that is!!!

Unfortunately, all too true- these filthbags deserve to have their fingers severed off with a blunt butter knife, but if caught will cop a good half dozen strokes of the Goose feather!

I hope your guns weren’t in the list of things they stole..

All secure. They’d need sledgehammers, bolt cutters, angle grinders and several uninterrupted hours to get at my firearms.

But I bet you`d only need a few seconds to unlock `em, load `em and shoot the scum that robbed you if you happened to see them. Or are we not supposed to say that out loud? For the record I do support the summary execution of thieves and burglars among others. It`s such a low act.

I always had an alarm when kids in primary and secondary school, particularly given the fact that thieves can still be robbing a property when the kids returned home from school as was the case with a girlfriend of mine when her older son returned home, disturbed them and they ran out the back way.
