Additionally, it helps not only for new people to these forums, but it also helps to spread the word about possible new tactics and targets bad guys choose. That is where I see threads like this being beneficial. Even the OP didn't consider construction sites to be a potential target.

Ok, so now you can tell her to quit hanging around constructions sites since you read it here. (That was a joke) :cheers2:

    :iagree:
    My wife does not read this forum either. She use to roll her eyes when she saw me taking a pistol when ever and where ever we went. However. since having me relay some of the accounts of evil discribed here, watching a smattering of shows like Live PD and Monsters and having her own experience of someone trying to gain access to the house, she now asks me if I have remembered my " fiends when we go out. Knowledge and information is a good thing. She now knows everyone does not think like she does or has her values.

    Why would a construction site not be considered a potential target? Thousands of dollars of valuable equipment sitting there. What are not potential targets? What are the areas you feel safe not carrying even if you are allowed to? My point is that crime is everywhere, and unless it has a valid teaching point for the LTC-er, it's pretty useless being posted as there are thousands of violent crimes being committed daily. While I don't disagree completely, if you need this forum to relay that the world is full of evil people, and that nowhere can be considered "safe," I don't think you would have gotten an LTC in the first place.

    I would liked to see the % of LTCers that carry on a daily bacis.....I would bet it low. If that is the case even many LTCers don't perceive this world to be full of evil. If even one person is convinced to begin carrying religiously then the telling of the crimes is well worth it.

    :iagree:

    And as others have done, I've used stories posted here to inform and motivate others to get their LTCs.

    Since it seems about 90% of these posts start with "TX: Houston" I'm convinced there's nothing I need to see in Houston. Dallas might be just as bad but no one is posting about every shooting that happens in Dallas/Ft. Worth.

I will not enter a business or building that is 30.06/30.07 posted. I don't care what it is. the only exception would be if someone i knew was in the hospital and the hospital was posted. Other than that nope. restaurants, retail businesses, gas stations. Doesn't matter.
    Agree 100%.
    I was a voracious reader when I was a teenager and somebody said read Truman Capote. So, I read In Cold Blood...If you think you are safe out in the country then I strongly encourage you to read that book.
    I now live in the country too and carry 24/7.

    OK, I won't beat a dead horse or post further on this topic. I think my point is missed. I was not saying do not post crime descriptions on the forum. I postulated posts of crimes, where "mistakes" were made that may have saved the victim and/or altered the outcome, and that would be educational for the LTC-er, were useful and informative. I don't think posting of a crime that occurs dozens of times per day, where no witnesses were present, and the only account we have is that it happened, is useful or informative to forum members. Now if this forum is your sole reminder and description of over 3400 violent crimes in the U.S. per DAY to pass on to others, and that you have a LTC for a good reason, well then I guess you'll just have to disagree with me. Once again, MHO :cheers2:

    Maybe the folks in Houston are making theses posts because they don't have their head in the sand. Maybe I should correct that say, " not as many".
