Even though crime rates are down, people have just been made paranoid by the 24/7 news cycle where you can hear about a stabbing on the other side of the country 15 minutes after it happened.
Do you have a source for that?

Sneaking into someone's home late at night, especially if they aren't expecting company? To you that may be paranoia, to be frightened by the experience. To me it would be a perfectly natural response, and no I didn't keep a loaded gun in my night stand.

You surprise someone by ringing the door bell. There are man ways to surprise someone without sneaking into their home late at night.

Various sources that are competitors to city-data that aren't allowed, but you can google.


FBI should be OK? Lists 19 violent crimes.

No, she shouldíve put a bullet right between her daughterís eyes. Collateral damage for a righteous cause: making sure that paranoid, trigger-happy people are safe from their own families.

When you are in your home, it's always customary to announce your presence by name and honorific, in cases where the home guards are not present for any reason, and then formally asking for permission before opening the door and then thereby entering. All this could have been prevented.
