You think this might be the same burglar that turns your power off and waits to see if anyone comes out to check the breakers in order to determine if anyone is home or not? I wonder......would be nice to find out.
Anyway, they break into my place and gives me reason to, I'll fill them with lead. No problem. I would rather be tried by 12 than carried by six.
