New Jersey Violent Home Invasion

I think it’s important to talk about these types of stories from time to time. Though home invasions are not tracked separately from other crime, and are usually reported as a robbery, burglary, assault, homicide, etc, anecdotal evidence suggests that home invasions are on the rise. In my opinion, they are only going to get worse.

Perhaps I’ll follow up in the future about why I believe home invasions will get worse, but back to our story at hand. A New Jersey woman was home with her 3 year old daughter, when in broad daylight a man kicked her front door in and beat her pretty severely. This all happened in front of her daughter while her 1 year old son was sleeping upstairs. The woman thankfully survived and the children were unhurt.

Honestly this is nothing out of the ordinary, and it could have been much worse. However, what’s interesting from an analysis standpoint in this case is that there is video of the invasion and beating, all captured by the nanny cam.

I couldn’t find an unedited raw dump of the entire video, but the clip above and the videos located at the “read more” link below show enough of the story for you to get the idea. The point is this: home invasions happen, and they happen all the time. They happen in nice neighborhoods, they happen in not so nice neighborhoods. They happen at night, they happen in broad daylight.

This is why I carry even when I’m at home, and I suggest that you do the same. Take steps to make your home less of a target (dogs, security cameras and signs, etc). Do what you can to secure your home so that you can at least slow down someone trying to get in. And by all means, get some training and be ready to meet someone invading your home with deadly force if necessary.

    I forgot where it was but do you remember a woman (somewhere in America) was invaded by her ex? It was not that long ago, she called the 911 while he was trying to break in and guess what, they couldn’t send anybody; the sheriffs dep. was not there NO ONE was! It was on FOX News as well. She ended up being raped, this is why it is important to be responsible and protect yourself

      it happened in Oregon, the dispatcher said something like “can you ask him to leave? i don’t have anyone to send”

    This why I carry my 1911, I leave my Glock 17 condition 1 almond with my AR condition 1 loaded with Hornady TAP rounds at home with my girl. She is a hell of a shot and she trains with me.

    I also carry when I’m at home. I have two dogs that aren’t necessarily attack dogs, but they will bark at the slightest noise at the front door. Also, I have two computers with webcams on constant record with an app on my smartphone that records to keep the recording safe if anything happens to the two computers.

    I think what you are reffering to was in Oregon, the sherrif could not send anyone due to budget cuts. a link to the video is here:

    After 62 years in New Germany, I have escaped to the USA of Kentucky, where we are expected to protect ourselves and do. 73% of citizens, here are armed and not afraid to take out the trash. Nearly every day, we hear of an armed citizen that stopped or prevented a crime. A lot of us, Open Carry and the local Sheriff, sees it as a helping hand and a major deterrent.

    When there are more stories of criminals getting shot in the face when they kick in someones front door this will happen much less.

    My door is locked for your protection, not mine. Kick it in and meet the reaper.

    There hasn’t been a class I’ve taught 10 years that I haven’t specifically told my students to “Carry their gun – even if they are not ready to in public, or legalities bother them – at least carry at home!”

    I had a female student ask me Sunday why she should do that. Why do we feel the need to do that? Well…this case is the visual answer to that question.
