(Kitsap Sun)   If you're tired of your home being constantly vandalized and you suspect it's being done by someone next door, you could have mature, calm, frank conversation with the head of the household. Or you could show up at his door armed with a machete   (kitsapsun.com) divider line 36

If your home is constantly vandalized, just wait until the next time. "I'm sorry, officer, he was on my property, and held something in his hand in a threatening manner. I feared for my life! How was I to know he was spray-painting graffiti?" 

Or you could put up a surveillance camera, like a normal person.

The neighbors attempted to slam the door on the man, but he reportedly put his foot into the door holding it open, police said. The neighbors were ultimately able to close it, though the suspect denies he put his foot in the door.

Guy was dumb for going over there with a machete.
Should've waited until three in the morning and slashed their tires.
That vandalism shiat would stop real soon.
Trust me.

Let's see now: Kitsap County, machete, neighbor dispute. I'll take Meth for $500, Bob.

Stupid people. Don't ever open the door unless you know who is out there. Almost deserved what they almost got.

Wow the definition of assault sure has taken a shiat kicking by the pc crowd, eh? I was in court once testifying in support of aquaintance' character when the opposing lawyer tried to use hearsay against me that someone I had a verbal disagreement with said I "looked like I was going to hit him", so naturally I asked the lawyer how it appears when it looks like I am going to hit someone when I am standing still with my arms at my side running my mouth. She tried to pull out the definition of assault but the judge stopped her with a reprimand for wasting my and the courts' time. If I remember correctly I also had to ask what it looks like when I "almost hit him". Is that like "almost raping someone"? Can we now be jailed for "perceived intent"?
 
2012-12-13 11:27:50 AM  
Howdy neighbor. Let's have a frank discussion. Have you met my machete? I call him "Frank".
 
2012-12-13 11:30:02 AM  
Why couldn't you do both? Have a calm, mature discussion using the machete as a talking point.
 
2012-12-13 11:33:26 AM  
I'll go with the machete.

My last ex-gf said she and her husband were in therapy and the mediator made them use a "talking feather" and the one holding it had the floor. I think a "talking machete" would be soooo much more effective in ensuring you are not interrupted. HASSAN CHOP!

Actually if it weren't for the whole possibilty of getting arrested part.
A machete is quite the "I mean business" tool.

Showing up with a machete was dumb but I really thin that the last thing a person who is constantly vandalizing your home is going to respond ti is a mature, frank conversation.

Is Washington state civilized enough to allow potential victims to defend property as well as llfe if threatened? Or are they more concerned with the welfare of the criminal and providing them wita a safe work environment?

Yeah, this. How can you suspect someone of assault with a machete? When I assault you with a machete, you'll know it.

I can attest to that. Years ago I noticed chicken eggs splattered across the side of my house facing my neighbor's property. I knocked on their door and asked if they'd noticed anyone throwing eggs at my house. The woman living there immediately accused me of saying their teenaged boys had thrown the eggs. The mature conversation I was trying to have with her ended at that point, since that was all she had heard and she wasn't going to discuss the subject any further with me.

And yes, I suspected that the boys there or their friends had thrown the eggs, but I asked her what I typed up above. At least I didn't have any more eggs thrown at the house after that.

Yes. Yes we are.

RCW 9A.16.050
Homicide - By other person - When justifiable.

*** CHANGE IN 2011 *** (SEE 5045.SL) ***

Homicide is also justifiable when committed either:

(1) In the lawful defense of the slayer, or his or her husband, wife, parent, child, brother, or sister, or of any other person in his presence or company, when there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design on the part of the person slain to commit a felony or to do some great personal injury to the slayer or to any such person, and there is imminent danger of such design being accomplished; or

(2) In the actual resistance of an attempt to commit a felony upon the slayer, in his presence, or upon or in a dwelling, or other place of abode, in which he is.

Addenda:

RCW 9A.52.025
Residential burglary.

*** CHANGE IN 2011 *** (SEE 5891-S.SL) ***

(1) A person is guilty of residential burglary if, with intent to commit a crime against a person or property therein, the person enters or remains unlawfully in a dwelling other than a vehicle.

(2) Residential burglary is a class B felony. In establishing sentencing guidelines and disposition standards, the sentencing guidelines commission and the juvenile disposition standards commission shall consider residential burglary as a more serious offense than second degree burglary.
RCW 9A.52.040
Inference of intent.

I would not be stupid enough to bring a machete but I might wear a t shirt with a machete on it or just the word machete printed on it in a really scary font like chiller.ttf.
 
2012-12-13 01:39:48 PM  
Maybe if he'd spent more time playing catch with the neighbours, and less time training his body and mind to kill them in a machete fight...

Does subby actually think that calm, rational discussions between adults can even happen?

If you call out ANY adult for their behavior - no matter how legitimate - you'll get the "F*ck off" and possibly be challenged to a fight.

I used to act like people my age were polite, rational, etc. Now I realize no matter how old, how "mature", how rich/poor how old/young how smart the person is - will get angry when called out. Period.

Example: Have you ever been cut-off in traffic only to see the driver give you the finger? Like you're the problem? Sure you have.

Very few adults can look at themselves in a mirror and say, "I might have been wrong to do that." So don't f*cking assume you can have any "conversation" with them. You go in anticipating asshattery.
