    And not just any big-assed dog...a freaking Rottweiler!

    People make a big deal out of pit bulls, but most of them are pretty friendly. If a burglar breaks in, they're just as likely to show the intruder where the good stuff is.

    Rotties, on the other hand, are known for being protective and territorial.

    However, the fact are the prisons are overcrowded because the state can't afford to build more because they have been running massive deficits. The state can't afford to house them, so to balance the budget and pretend they are fiscally responsible, ProgLibs in Sacramento shipped criminals out to the counties, who suffer from the same public employee union scams. The counties have no choice but to sick the criminals on the innocent public.

    That's a fact.

    Toke it up for all I care, but all you're doing is drowning your opinion in bong water.

    Typical of your ilk....when you don't have the facts to support your assertions you resort to ridiculous arguments and personal attacks. No one is making excuses for those busted for breaking the law...but politicians and the ignorant voter love laws that sound like "tough justice" rather than being smart about the issues and spending money wisely. You guys always talk about "building more prisons" is the answer. That is exactly the kind of dumb justice that costs the tax payers millions of millions of dollars and gets us nowhere.
    Does it make sense that someone who is in possession of a $5 rock of cocaine is taking up space in a prison causing the early release of other more serious criminals? The typical "conservative" answer is "well....build more prisons....employee more prison guards and staff and we'll get the money somewhere". Don't you understand how foolish that is?

    about two years ago this similar situation happened to my next door neighbor....except she was a single mom with a 15 year old daughter (not home at the time)....a guy tried to get in the front door about 2 a.m. and she got 911 on the phone....he jumped a fence and went to the back of the house where she had 4 dogs...two large ones (one pit one collie mix) and two ankle biters..., the large ones i had always thought to be right protective but all they did was bark very aggressivly..(i heard them on the 911 tape later)....he went in through the kitchen window and she ran to the bedroom..he followed and she warned him to stop and put one 9mm round in his thigh....he stopped briefly screamed and then charged her...she put two in his chest...game over......he lived close by and sexual assault was believed to be his motive...

    Ilk?

    Got to love how quaint ProgLibs are.

    Can't do the time, don't do the crime.

    Nothing you've written changes the facts. The state doesn't have the money because their spending is off the charts. The latest estimates I've seen indicate there is close to $500 billion in unfunded public employee pension liabilities on the books. Further, the taxpayer is required to make up for deficits in the payout of benefits to public employees. Have you seen how much taxpayers have had to fork over to cover CalPers and other public employee union investment losses?

    I couldn't care less about those who are too stupid to stay out of jail. The fact is the ProgLibs fix is early release of violent criminals in order to keep paying out public employee union pay and benefits.

    Did you see this from a week ago?

    State workers want their cut of tax hike Page 1 of 2 | UTSanDiego.com

    State labor groups are insisting that Gov. Jerry Brown return their robust support of his successful tax-hike initiative in November by rewarding them with pay increases.

    Proposition 30, which boosted sales and incomes taxes, was sold to voters as a remedy for ailing schools, but state employee unions made it clear at a rally Wednesday that they expect to share in the $6 billion bounty.


    So the beat goes on. Tax the rich, harm the poor, and drive the state into the ground. And you want to rule the country? How you going to hide what you've done to California?

    If we're going to report horror stories, we need to report when the good guys win. Thoughts?
    If this incident were have had happened across the "Orange Curtain" in Los Angeles County, grandma would have had the handcuffs slapped on her and would have at least spent the night in jail and the liberal D.A. would have at the minimum filed charges of discharging a firearm with in the city limits.

    That's why I live in the last bastion of conservatives in California, Orange County where your allowed to exercise your Constitutional rights and are allowed to protective yourself, family and property and aren't forced to depend on government and a cell phone.

    LOL....so your answer is the typical so called "Conservative" solution....propose spending millions more tax payer dollars building more prisons and employing more prison guards.

    Gotta love that Conservative logic.....

    Care to back up that bold faced lie with an example of someone in Los Angeles recently who defended his home against a burglar who was arrested and charged?

    So allowing people to die is the answer?

    Gee, you ProgLibs have interesting views on compassion.

    I don't remember the exact number, but I believe Texas spends about 1/4 the amount per prisoner as California does.

    Wonder why that is?

    No, that would be connecting the dots.

    I've been leaving the leaps to you.
