What will you put in your moat?

http://drugpolicycentral.com/bot/article/online.indianagazette7220.htm

Okay, so in Mexico, villages are having to dig moats to try to keep drug gangs out of their villages. Their law enforcement can't be there all the time to protect them. Now, when we have open boarders (as if they aren't practically wide open already), how will small towns and 'villages' protect themselves from violence? Will digging moats become a trend here, and if so, what will you stock your pond with? I live in TX, so I guess I could get some alligators. ;o)

  • Old school - sharpened sticks, fecal matter, and just enough water to make it look like they could swim it, but not enough that they actually could swim it without giving themselves a few dozen fatal, festering wounds. Same thing they should do at the border.

    Oh, and for those saying they'll put soldiers or NG - you'll have to hire your own mercenaries. It is illegal to assign US troops on US soil except in the event of war. That includes border patrol. Read up on Posse Comitatus if you don't understand it, but it is for our own protection.

  • Good luck anon, the government is stopping workplace raids (if they already haven't). The US is becoming a huge safe haven for thugs and criminals. The government is making ICE's job much more difficult.

  • And lets not forget that Obama wants to make it impossible to obtain a gun legally and has grand ideas to massively tax ammo. So if you aren't already stocked up, you are out of luck. Better go buy yourselves some shovels and start digging.

  • The enemy is armed, they will just take out your dogs or anything else they see as a threat. GMAB, they also know how to swim, so a moat will just slow them down a little.
