    Be careful what you wish for.

    Of course, posting your addresses could increase your chances.

    You people need to arm yourselves! When these punks come in your door you need to shoot them and eliminate the threat! Until we do that these punks will continue to commit these crimes - they are already on probation, they know we can do nothing to them in the criminal system - they just keep stealing, robbing, raping - they need to meet a homeowner with a shotgun! Exercise your 2nd Amendment rights and help fight crime in Durham! Hope they stop by my home, I am ready for them!
