Justice Breyer Home Invasion

No word from police whether Justice Breyer will be charged with a fashion crime

This story is over a week old but we figured it was worth mentioning. Recently, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was their victim of a home invasion at his vacation home by a machete wielding intruder. Justice Breyer was at the home, on the Caribbean island of Nevis, vacationing with friends. Nevis is part of the West Indies chain known as the Leeward Islands, located about 350 miles southeast of Puerto Rico.

Breyer, his wife and two other guests were home at the time apparently no one was hurt.

The male intruder made off with about $1,000 in cash and fled the scene. Police spokesman, Sgt. Alonzo Carty, said Monday that a “person of interest”, Vedel K. Browne, turned himself in late Saturday but had not yet been charged.

According to police it didn’t appear as if the Justice was specifically targeted. There were no details about how the intruder was able to gain entry.

The U.S. Marshals Service provides protection for members of the high court when they are traveling, and it’s unclear why there were no Marshals present at the time. Unlike the President and VP, Justices are under no legal obligation to accept protection, the can and often do refuse it from time to time.

Justice Breyer is hardly the first Supreme Court Justice to have a run in with a criminal. Then-Justice David Souter was assaulted by a group of young men in 2004 while jogging alone in the evening near his Washington home. He suffered some minor scratches and bruises and was later treated then released from a local hospital.

In 1996, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg had her purse stolen by a robber while walking near her home in Washington D.C.

Remember, be aware of your surroundings and avoid making yourself look like a victim. Never jog alone, especially at night. However, if you do make sure to carry some form of protection, like a stun gun, key-chain pepper spray or other self defense products.

At home, never open your door unless you know exactly who is there. fortify your front door with dead bolts, and a metal door frame reinforcement.

It just goes to show that even famous people and public figures are all at risk of becoming a victim of crime. Remember the three A’s; Awareness, Avoidance and Action! And check our home invasion prevention page for tips on how to prevent this from happening to you.

Burglar Cooks And Cleans

A Burglar's Tools of the trade

So who wouldn’t want someone to come to their house to do the laundry, cook and clean for free? Well a South Bend Indiana women apparently wasn’t too thrilled when Keith Davis, 46, swept her floor, folded her laundry and cooked dinner. That’s because Keith Davis was a burglar.

Ashley Murray arrived home with her son to find Davis in her home, making himself at home and doing some chores. She noticed the lights on inside and assumed her brother was in the house, only to discover the stranger in her home.

“I’m like, ‘The police are on their way!’ And he told me, ‘The police already been here,’ closed my window, locked it back up and closed my door and sat in a chair in front of the window until the police came,” Murray said.

Murray said she noticed Davis had cooked some chicken and onions in a pan, folded her clothes and swept the floor. Davis even put a sheet and pillow on her couch.

Come for the valuables, stay for the turkey on rye

“The police said it looked like he was a good chef. It looked like he had broth and everything in it,” she said.

Davis was arrested despite adamantly stating he was in his own home. He was charged with breaking and entering.

Apparently he told police he had woken up in the apartment and he really believed that he was at his house. When police asked for his address he gave them a non-existent address. His speech was slurred and police believe he had been under the influence of illegal drugs.

The following was the best quote from the story; “He drunk up my orange juice, but it’s cool because he swept up my floor and folded my clothes,” Murray said.

Not a bad time to review home invasion and burglary prevention tips to keep your home secure and you and your family safe.

Teenager uses improvised weapon to fight off a burglar

In the past we’ve written about how improvised self defense weapons can be just as effective as store bought self defense products. Well a Tulsa, Oklahoma teenager demonstrated that concept when he used a decorative sword to fight off a burglar in his home.

Jesse Livingston was in his room at approximately 10:30 pm when he heard what turned out to be a burglar breaking into his home. He grabbed the novelty sword and knocked the intruder over the head and chased him man out of his west Tulsa home.

It just goes to show that during desperate times, almost any object can be used to fight off an attack or robbery. If you’re in a pinch and can’t get to your gun, pepper spray or Taser, you can use just about any household item to fight off an attacker.

For jabbing, any item that is long and cylindrical is ideal like a broom, umbrella, baseball bat or even a novelty sword. Smaller items can be effective as well, such as; A flashlight, rolled up magazine or newspaper, kitchen utensils, fire extinguisher, etc.

Even smaller items that fit into your hand can be very effective; Sharpie pen, DVD case, soda can, coffee cup, bottle or my personal favorite the brim of a baseball cap rolled up. All of these items can be used for jabbing and you should target bony areas of the attacker’s body.

It’s good to remember that an ounce of prevention is a lot easier than fighting off the bad guy. Keep your house well lit and make it appear as if someone is home. Most robbers won’t break in if they think someone is home. Also, deadbolts, a reinforced door frame or a floor type door brace all work well to keep burglars out.
