For the first time ever the tweakers here are moving farther out of town. To us rural folks. There has been a profound increase of barn break in's while residents are home. Late at night with nothing but footprints in the snow. One set of footprints crossed 80 acres! There was a very large meeting held at the local bar. I attended and the place was standing room only. It was good to hear about all the incidences of crime. And so many neighbors reporting flashlights deep in the woods at night. One recent break in one perp was caught and held at gun point while his partner ran off into the tree's escaping capture. The perp tried to run and the father and son that stopped him had to dump 2 rifle rounds in the snow next to him. He was arrested and because of his previous record, apparently has to do several years now. Never heard any follow up there. He lived just up the road from his crime scene. His buddies are still out there. But everyone knows what they drive now thanks to a great meeting. Meth heads are not logical. They will do crazy things. Reading the police blotter they almost always have an illegal firearm with them when arrested. What year is this? 1892? Geez...

WHAT?!? No, that's impossible. There is no way a meth-head would have a firearm. We have laws against that.

Thats' creepy. You should move. Find a way. My wife and I left an absolute pile of a neighborhood in Oregon. In the Coast range mountains on the way out of PDX. Drugs all around us, theft, confrontational people, dogs attacking us on OUR porch. Life is to short to put up with pr*cks.

You should learn to shoot. Carry all the time and let em know. Wear it open carry on your property and let them see it. That is legal. Most of all learn to use it well. And get a safe for all guns.
You are only a victim if you allow yourself to be.

That dang cutoff bug. I usually copy what I write and replace it in editing. We have been working with other neighbors to rid the area of this scum. I was sure that when they chased my neighbor Thom onto the highway then hit him with a car at 2:30 AM that it would cause waves. We do want to sell our place and we are down to only two or three of the bad guys left. The number of property owners has dropped significantly as well however. All our retirement money is tied up in our place. I was handed a 1903 Springfield rifle with a scope from a local guy who said the tweakers had hired him to take me out “because…” and he listed reasons, that if true, I would hate myself for being that kind of . Fortunately he sobered up and decided to watch me (which was creepy) for several weeks and I wasn’t bothering anyone. Just cleaning my place up. The other guy however showed his colors and the hired hand saw firsthand how “Meth Camp” was run.
A few on here are local to us and some even saw the posts on my Facebook page as it played out. I was advised to play wild Wild West with them. My Soul isn’t about to be given over that easily, but now it’s pretty much every man for himself.

Wow, I feel for you. The sad part is trying to hire someone for a hit is pretty serious. You would think law enforcement would make waves and start taking people in for charges. But my experience has been they just say, " we are building a case" and years will pass and not a thing will get done. I saw this in several places I lived. Over and over. And having someone tell you just shoot the dog is by far more complicated and unrealistic than the situation permits.
So with that being said, just protect your and your family's well being. Stay safe and know that meth heads usually crash and burn eventually. So you will out last them. Also know that the newer mexican meth coming in our country in liquid form for conversion to a solid, is way more pure and powerful than anything ever brewed here in the states in the past. So that makes them more crazy and unpredictable. Just watch your back and hope the situation betters itself through time. But yes, have the capacity to protect yourself and family. All the best to you and family.

When the local government backs the tweakers and won’t even prosecute anything less than a $2000 theft, this is what happens.

If you keep the populace intoxicated and in a constant state of lack, they will never threaten your power. It's been going on for hundreds of years.

Tweakers

Please excuse my ignorance,....what the heck is a Tweaker?....slang for.?

This crap isn't just out there, here in the Midwest, crackheads are everywhere.
But having said that, so are "we the people" with valid CPL's.
People staying connected in the neighborhood is the very best defense!
Carry on .

Actually this is a very safe place. Our road has had only a scant few problems over the last 5 years.
Across the little 2 lane hiway is another story. Thats where all this went down.
The meeting we all had at the local bar was really something. It was packed and everybody has everybodies back. And knock on wood.... The virus garbage going on has made a lot of people desperate. Just last night a truck was stopped going up a driveway down the road from our home. They thought the resident was not home. When stopped they peeled backwards down the driveway and went in the snow filled ditch. The got out and away before the resident got a plate. Within 20 minutes the whole road knew. We now have a network because of recent events. This is really unheard of actually. The world is changing. And fast..
Having these clowns doing this at night is really bad. Every resident is armed and aware. I hope it gets back to normal. . No darn good....

Sounds like an opportunity for some fun......


"Night hunting for tweakers" could be a new sport.


Just catch them and tie them to a tree till they're clean.


Or tie them to a tree and stick a lb. of bacon in their pants and let the animals do the rest.


I won't lie and say I never went through a white powder phase in the 80's in Phoenix but I never stole from anyone, or committed any crime

(well other than the obvious use of illegal medications) or hurt anyone.
I worked and paid for my own stupidity.
Seems the stuff out there today is a lot worse than the stuff back then.


It's a shame but all you can do is common sense security steps and make it harder for them to screw you over. Of course after you shoot a couple word will get around to steer clear of your property......


.....Or it could just let them know you have guns to steal...

In WA state if you weren’t prepared before, trying to find reload stuff now sucks.

Yes it is all a mess. If you can find anything it is overpriced now. Greed sucks..
A friend over in Snohomish said AR ammo went from 230 for 1K to over 700 for the same amount. And I hear gun sales has skyrocketed.

I lost all my guns in a boating accident. Every single last one of em. I am a pretty good shot with a wrist rocket sling shot.

I need to find decent replacement hose for my wrist rocket. Old school bow can launch a smoldering road flare into the thick of Heisenbergville as the rocket’s red glare and cooking meth smell in the air and by it’s fading light we see the last tweaking.

It'sElliot, Tweakers are meth heads, dope fiends, addicts who steal to support their habit. Generally referred to in this way because of their demeanor. twitchy, nervous, short tempered, irrational. I'm being polite here. They'll steal anything not tied down, especially from the backs of trucks. They're looking for stuff that can be bartered for what they need or unloaded quickly for a fraction of what it's worth. These are the kind that will steal copper of a church roof. They're scary because they have nothing to lose. Zombies of sorts, have to be when they don't respond to bullets. Others in the post seem to have it much worse than most places it would seem. The best defense is neighbors who care and look out for one another. Always watching each others backs and speaking up. It's a war of attrition and they don't win, they tend to expire by their own hands sooner than later.

Sorry, don't mean to over simplify. Carry on.
