I am trying to work a job. I am a single mother of three children 18,16, and 8.  I work 2nd shift.  I was told at work I cannot get on 1st shift.  I live in Rockford Illinois.   I am working to get my son to graduate. he was behind.  the gangs are also in the public school.  But this gang of 5 has targeted my house.   They have tried breaking in 9 times.  each time I wake up or the kids do.  I have called the police many times.  but the gang continues to periodically try.  I am trying to put up motion lights.  I am struggling to put in a home security system.  I also have a german sheppard he's not quite full grown.

Get yourself a registered weapon sweetie and learn how to use it. Find out the laws for were you live for a break in and use it if you have to. You have every right to protect those kids and yourself. What's up with the system they should be watching your home! Hugs

The cops in Rockford are too busy with all the crime.. I called the cop said the crime in Rockford is too much for the cops to handle too many burgulars, stealing items.  Too many car theft.  The cops cannot handle all the crime.  On a Friday or Saturday night it takes them over a hour to respond,   my german shepard is growing larger every day.  I will get a gun card as soon as I can then I will save for a hand gun. But my hours at work are cut down so it will take some time. In the meantime I have been praying for God to protect us and to strike the gang down.

I trained my german sheppard to attack.  He chased 5 gang members last week.  they ran up a 20 foot fence to get away from my black german sheppard.  my daughter saw the 5 gang members coming to our house at night.  she opened the back door. told the sheppard to attack.  he went across the street biting and pulling on all 5 gang members clothes.  they ran afraid up a 20 foot fence across the street.  I took time to train my dog to attack on command.  so so far we are ok.
