If my boys had done something like that, I would have beat on them myself. A sick society that can't raise children to respect others property.

There was an armed robbery with a GUN and Sootoday instead reports on another break and enter. I'm done with SooToday, just changed my homepage to the Sault Star.

Give it a try people, it's actually better

For those concerned about defending your property give this a read for a better perspective.

I have defended my property before, never was charged with assaulting a thief, lowlife, loser, scumbag.

Pretty soon some of those wingers are gonna say "they are drug addicts and its okay they break into peoples homes and steal your stuff to get drugs". If someone ever breaks into my house they better hope this Dawg aint off his chain, cause it is going to be a bad day for him.

It's Dumb Dog the resident redneck.

Yes we know, you leave your door unlocked to let the drunk's in, so you can beat them before you call the police.

What great sport.

@Drunky The Clown
Do you realize what an oxymoron you wrote? He breaks into a house, he assaults someone, BUT, he's a GOOD kid from a good family. The family might be good, except him. That really was a Clown response.

I'm sure that at some point in time Charlie Manson or Hitler were "good kids from a good family").
