I plan on putting out bear traps for my protection while I sleep, could I get into any legal trouble if people that were causing me any problems Stepped on one?
put legos down inside so when they break in and take their shoes off they will step on them and be in extreme pain.
This is for when I sleep though... I want it outside so they don't fuck my tent up. I must go soon, but there is no way for me to keep these people from messing with me at night? I need my sleep. I worry about them being methed out and sneaking into my tent and bashing my head with a rock or hammer or something.
Seriously though if you do read this I would put out some type of motion sensing flood lights or something that lets you know that someone is outside. Get your shotty and fire a shot into the air when you know it is them.
If you live innawoods and it's tweekers who are fucking with you I don't think you have to worry about legal trouble. They certainly don't have the resources to sue you and they probably wouldn't follow through if they did. Do whatever you have to to keep yourself safe I wouldn't worry about the law too much
Motion sensor alarms or bright lights would be best deterrents. Even on private land you could get into legal trouble if someone got injured. (Ever heard those sickening stories of thieves successfully suing businesses and homeowners for getting injured while breaking in?)
You could also employ non-lethals like a paint mine trip wires (or motion sense if you want to get really fancy/expensive). They are pretty inexpensive to make (pvc and CO2 cartidges) and you could fill them with nontoxic paint or dye. There are dudes on paintball forums that make them for sale as well I believe
This. Shoot at them so they know you mean business. Let them reflect on the risk versus the possible reward. Dig the graves ahead of time so you have one less thing to do. Meth heads aren't people anymore, remember that.
You'd have a legit excuse if you have a trapper's license, I think. At least here in Canada, since we have a licensing scheme for it. Otherwise traps occupy a weird legal gray area, but probably illegal.
I seriously hope this is b8, because anybody who tries to start a turf war when outnumbered by tweekers is going get fucked up.
OP, do you know what a needle trap is? When someone gets on the bad side of a group of tweekers, they take dirty needles from people the know have Hep or HIV and set traps with them.
I used to work security in downtown Seattle and I have seen the nasty shit tweekers and junkies will do when someone starts shit with them.
thorn bushes shit like that, nature's barbed wire
and some poison ivy for good measure.
maybe a rattle can so you know if someone is messing with it.
but it might be better to just move before the winter comes. and secure the new camp in peace.
