Florida woman touches hidden burglar under bed while looking for her cats! — 8 Comments

  1. That must have been very scary for that lady. She’s very lucky that the burglar didn’t harm her and was quickly apprehended by the police.

    I watched a very creepy Spanish film “Sleep Tight” yesterday evening, where the main character developed an obsession with a young woman living in his apartment block. He used to hide under her bed and await her return home each evening…

    I’m glad I have a drawer divan bed. The only thing capable of hiding under their are the cats’ toys.

  2. Invading someone’s home here is a very serious crime and the police generally do act quickly.
    I don’t own a weapon, but I agree with Elisa. If a person invades a home and the homeowner feels that he is in danger, that homeowner most always has the right to shoot.
    Just looking at this scum’s picture, though, pretty assures me that I could probably take him down.

    • I guess, therefore, you think we are soft in the head in the UK!

      Perhaps the huge difference in how home owners are allowed to shoot burglars in the US is closely linked to gun ownership in the US.

      Almost no one owns guns in the UK. Burglars in the US probably carry a gun and therefore present a real risk to life and limb. Not so in the UK.

      • Soft in the head? Don’t understand.
        I don’t own a weapon and never will.
        What I’m saying is that the laws here protect homeowners who defend their families and property much of the time.
        And, police take home invasion very seriously because it’s likely that the culprit is armed.
        I hate guns and wish they didn’t exits, but I don’t see the laws really changing. Guns are very easy to buy illegally.

    • 🙂 . It sounds like you have reverted to the good old Wild West to us here in the UK. In the UK, if we shot a burglar willy-nilly we’d be done for murder unless the home owner was threatened with a gun or knife and genuinely acted in self defense. The burglar has to act first here.

      • A few years ago I read the story of a 12-year-old girl who shot a burglar. Turns out the burglar had killed 2 people earlier than night right down the street from her. We shoot first here and ask questions later. The police are tired of arresting people and the courts letting them back out to hurt others.
