TPD really needs to crack down on these milk thieves running around town. It's getting to the point you can't even walk to the store and buy a gallon of milk anymore. Before you know it they will move on to bigger and bolder crimes and start stealing entire cows.

Don't worry, our soft on crime judges will let peeping tom back on the street after a few days.

The guy who robbed the cash exchange and tried to light it on fire by Domino's, has already been let out of jail. He did not even do a year.

Why does Tracy PD bother to even show up, if these criminals just get put out on the street. Can we just shoot them ourselves?

If they're in your house, by all means, shoot them. However, the tyrannical California government has taken your gun rights away to protect yourself on the street so good luck in that aspect.

It goes beyond your house, it can be my land as well. And believe you me, if I fear my life is in jeopardy...

It's such a shame, Tracy used to be a reasonably safe town.

I can factually tell ya that if ya discharge a weapon outside of your home and yer property is in th City yer gonna end up in jail.

Th only exception is if ya or someone else is in imminent danger of bodily harm whair th loss of life would be th end result an ya damn will better be carryin th weapon lawfully or even then yer gonna have some delicate explainin ta do in order ta avoid criminal prosecution fer violatin some gun laws.

Here imminent danger is interpreted by law as immediate and or present. After that immediate or present danger is no longer imminent ya can't shoot as yer now outside th law that allows ya ta protect yerself. An in no case does protect yerself or th life of someone else extend ta thangs such as property. Ya can only shoot in immediate defense of yer life or th life of someone else. Anythang else is gonna put ya in jail.

I sure would hate to shoot the neighbor's kid, down the street for wanting to steal my rims, but given the homicides lately in Tracy -think about it... Why wouldn't your life be in jeopardy?
