At night we get a stream of transients moving through our backyards. Sometime they pass out drunk or steal lawn furniture and bikes and there have been some break-ins. We tried a security system (including cameras and alarms) but the cops won't respond unless there is a violent crime. Looking for ways to establish a secure perimeter.
>>
>>2253313
what's the rest of the story? from what i can see there are fences between yards, why are they hopping 15+ fences when they could just walk down the street?
If there is theft, just fucking shoot them, and have your wife and children say they feared for their lives from scary bad man in your yard. not even san francisco will be able to make a case against you.
>>
>>2253318
Some of the fences are in poor condition and the tenants don't give shit.
>just shoot them
Yes but better to keep them out because more will just keep coming on.

>Yes but better to keep them out because more will just keep coming on.

They won't if you shoot them.
>>
>>2253319
if alarms and cops don't work, you have to take the law into your own hands. 100% serious here. put a few bodies on the ground and they will stop coming. if you are uncomfortable with that, at least fuck a few of them up with a baseball bat, enough so that they never walk or talk again.
>>
>>2253320

put this along the top of the outermost fences along the block so getting in is a bitch and then randomly on a couple interior yards to stop progression

It's quite common for municipalities to regulate the use of razorwire, barbed wire, and chain link on the grounds of unsightliness. Go ahead, check your local codes, see what you find.
>>
>>2253313
Stop them at the source of the problem.

Speak to the owner of that corner property and try to resolve any gaps there. You might be able to drop a hint about wanting to avoid having to go to a civil suit for personal injury and property damages.

It may be a local ordinance that property owners are obligated to secure their lots in this scenario.

ive heard of violent hobos alot recently, i never made the connection between that and corona cop withdrawals until now.

do this.
go to the banks, get rolls of dimes, nickles and quarters, maybe 20$ in coins
go around the neighborhoods where i marked, throwing the coins in other peoples property and alongside their roads.
the hobos will notice this and be drawn away from you

also, take note of who doesnt seem to own a floodlight, buy a few cheap floodlights from target and gift them to your neighbors. maybe theyll install it.

Yeah, move to Austin with all the other left coast faggots and enjoy dealing with this same issue. We hype Austin up for a reason, it's faggot containment.

Depends on your city. I pay $650 a month for a 1 bedroom within walking distance of a supermarket, arthouse theater, major university, and large park, with free public transit.

I don't mind it though, real estate shoots through the roof. Every few years my house doubles in value, and I just move to a larger house with more toys 30-45 minutes away. Done it twice now. Live in Heights, half a mile from the lake. Place was worth like 200ish three years ago, now close to 500. Quiet, retirement neighborhood with a lot of vets, and it's off the beaten path. Everyone has multiple cars, a boat, and an RV.

Do you feel like 650$ a month is pretty average and representative of your city though?
I'm paying 500$ a month for my shithole, but the average is more like 1500$ in my city-- if I had to move I'd be fucked. My next affordable option would be renting a room for ~700$ which seems relatively ordinary in my location.

THere are no such prices anymore in any livable place. Even the midwest is much more expensive than that. THere must be a catch. Probably it is a real shithole with no jobs.

Straight up, a sprinkler on a motion sensor might be effective. Even if they're drunk/high/retarded they probably won't like getting sprayed with water and it doesn't necessarily induce a violent reaction the way that most active defenses would. Plus it's cheap, legal, and basically harmless.
Those things are still somewhat humanoid; they don't like getting sprayed with water.

Plant a perimeter of blackberry around your fence line. It's an incredibly fast grower, pernicious pokey and because of how it grows if you land on it from hopping the fence, you'll get seriously stuck and fucked up.

Because it is a voracious grower you must stay on top of pruning it. Thick welders gloves with the gaiters are ideal. It will grow up to 5 ft tall and as wide as you want. Plus it readily sets root.

We bought our house early in the gentrification growth of this are and melanin enriched individuals kept hopping our fence. They stopped in a hurry once those bushes started filling in.

Make sure you get the wild varieties. The ones at the stores have been bred for their fruits and lack of thorns. I grew ours from cuttings of a couple particularly thorny wild blackberry on a nature trail near us.

> while begging for our money and energy surpluses
Sure, sure. Keep telling yourself that. Get angry about California too - with their higher quality of living, larger economy, higher incomes, better education, higher property values, better water resources, better climate, and a smaller border with Mexico. I guess you have more whites there, more natty, and more dumb ass hicks. And your shitty texmex food. So stay proud Texan! And remember what FOX tells you - California is a failing state! And of course all your major cities lean liberal. And the bigger those cities get, the bigger that sprawl the more you'll creep blue.

Property taxes in California are limited by Proposition 13, a law approved by California voters in 1978. The law has two important features. First, it limits general property taxes (not including those collected for special purposes) to 1% of a property’s market value. And secondly, it restricts increases in assessed value to 2% per year.
OP pays $9k/yr, increasing 2%/yr.

caltrops. stop using your back yard its winter. spread caltrops. do not allow your friends / family to use the backyard and make them aware why.

if you look them up and cant fathom how to make one without a welding device then put nails in a board and cover with leaves. spread the nails so that you wouldnt step on more than 1 most likely. if lawenforcement asks say it must be waste from a small project at some earlier point or even say you dont know a neighbor might have thrown it in the yard

We live in a country where police are literally doing less and less for the average joe, they are more or less government sponsored corporate property and rich folk protection force.

OP, if you are serious, consider having everyone in your area hire a private security firm. It's what they do in some areas and a lot of 3rd world countires in nicer areas. Nothing will make you smile more than the private security tase some bum that thought it'd be OK to pitch a tent.

You love the system, you just wish you were higher up on the totem pole.

Sadly though, you are correct. As our rich/poor gap increases, you can look to latin america for how this will work. ultra rich use government for personal use. Rich use private security. This is why you see all those calls for socialism over the last 50 years in latin america, and why the US worked so hard to support the various banana republics and dictatorships down there.

The reality is you need to either placate or exterminate the lower classes. Society is in an ongoing balancing act there. Maybe one of these days the alt-right will wake up and realize that you can't be "populist" and "anti-elite" and still be "pro-corporate" "pro-military" "pro-police".

Build better fences and organize with your bloc to start keeping watch at night. That looks like 20+ houses, I'm sure you can find enough people to make a rotating guard patrol work.

>>
>>2261007
>The reality is you need to either placate or exterminate the lower classes
This.

In the US, you can’t just exterminate an entire class of people. So instead, the rich people conspire (perhaps only subconsciously) to contain the poor in specific neighborhoods. Then at least the rich neighborhoods can continue business as usual while still allowing the poor to work. The trick is to not get the poor too upset so they don’t rebel and keep working their menial jobs that enrich to wealthy.

I live in a relatively wealthy neighborhood but I do wish there was a better middle ground where there wasn’t such a gap between rich and poor.

Poverty in the US (unless you're physically or mentally defective) reflects low intelligence and refusal to copy success.

If any of your hobbies and interests don't dovetail to empower your life (DIY is magnificent for that so do it relentlessly) they're shit to be discarded. All entertainment should be educational and mind expanding. Wasted thoughts are wasted life. Focus, attack and if your inner child/inner retard gets in the way understand that is a DEFECT to be purged or killed.

I'm old and have many genuinely disabledbros (we ALL get disabled and youth is fleeting so prepare with exemplary thoroughness or be fucked) who still do well because they're hardcore DIYers who help each other out. I'm also disabled (back, neck, shoulder, chronic pain so sleep-deprived for decades).

Honestly, I fucking hate the system as it currently sits. You probably think I'm some bootlicker for wanting the police to actually do their fucking job and enforce basic laws so we can live in safe, functional communities where people work for a living and have something to look forward to, am I right? Everybody but the ultra-wealthy are getting fucked in the ass on a regular basis in the US, and average joes who work for what they have and spend money and earn their things should at least be able to enjoy them but frankly they can't as we see in this thread. I should be able to own a car without worrying it will get broken into or stolen for some methhead junkie's personal enjoyment, and I should be able to walk in the downtown areas where the cool bars and shops are at without having to worry about some raggedy ass drugged out homeless nutjob stabbing me or trying to fight me because he's decided he's the Sword of Micheal. I should be able to own a house without worrying about some transients shitting in the backyard, or passing out on the property, but these things happen here and the police don't do shit. It's the least we can do in this fucking clown ass country where random NPCs are now stealing from department stores en masse, car thieves, rapists, and other criminals are being let out of jail multiple times because we don't want them to get COVID, and where food, rent and medical costs are sky high.

So yes, I do think OP should hire some security becuase if the government isn't going to maintain the peace at an acceptable level, then citizens need to do it themselves.
