Here’s The Latest British Police Advice On How To Stop Burglars

Monty Python would have been proud of the advice given to a Surrey resident about how to stop potential burglars. Englishman, David Bishop, is a former British Broadcasting Corporation engineer, and he has thousands invested in electronic equipment at his home. He went to a community meeting with police about a rash of home burglaries in his neighborhood recently. He told officers that he was concerned that his property could be stolen.

Police had usually told homeowners in the area  that has been hard hit by burglaries to not use homemade deterrents such as putting wire mesh around windows because burglars could hurt themselves and sue for         damages. They advised to use strong locks. 

But, Bishop was given the following advice about to keep it safe from burglars. He should create a sign telling burglars that they could be accidentally electrocuted if they stole the equipment or tried to use it in the storage area at the home. Some of the equipment carries up to 30,000 volts. He was specifically advised to put up a fluorescent sign that warned burglars that they could be “In danger.” According to the Telegraph, he was counseled by the Bobbies to use a yellow sign that said, “Warning, Electrical Tools,” and for those who couldn’t read, add a lightning bolt to the sign. The sign should be fluorescent because most burglaries are nighttime jobs.

Police refused comment about the sign when approached by local news media.

Why not just put up a sign saying valuable goods are stored inside, just be careful if you take them. This sign should be as effective as keeping criminals with guns out of "Gun Free Brady Zones" nanny progressive britain burglars sue homeowners suffer injury committing burglary

However, In Chicago:

A Chicago area woman didn’t depend on a sign to stop a burglar who entered her south side home. She heard breaking glass, grabbed her gun, and confronted two burglars inside the home. Her shots wounded one man and the other died. An autopsy is scheduled. She won’t be charged for the killing because the man who was wounded threatened the woman with a tire iron. But, it is not known if she possessed the proper permit to have a gun in her home.
