Conservative talk show host Tammy Bruce was having a quiet evening writing at home. Then her dog Sydney started acting up. At first she joked that her apartment was haunted, but she soon realized something was seriously wrong.

Whew! We’re glad Tammy and her dog are OK.

Enjoy your steak lunch and new toy, Syd. You deserve it!

            Above your post a poster calling himself or herself Top Tip said, “Ability to call the police and have them help you remove an intruder.

            The poster “Top Tip” inserted race into the conversation.

          This is when race was brought in to the thread. And Tigersusa631 responded to it.

        • Denise Rae Groce

          The thing is, is that people need to leave race out of it in every post! I always see people throwing around racial slurs, demeaning a whole group based on the subject of the article etc etc. I don’t care if the person is black, white, yellow or red, being hateful doesn’t make anyone look good!

      • Robert Stevens

        How is it that the only time anyone cares about race is when its perceived that it is a caucasian speaking.If it was ANY other race,everyone is too scared to comment.Or if the comment is about caucasians-again,NO COMMENTS.Go AWAY.

  • Daniel Bonacum

    Glad she’s OK. She’s right, a good dog is a great warning, and potential protector. But a 9 mm would seal the deal. Regarding a ghost – I”‘f its a ghost, the gun won’t do you any good. If its not a ghost – the guns not going to do the intruder any good.”

    • phonograf

      Tammy Bruce is definitely always packing. A revolver at least. But what she was trying to say, packing is nice, but just like it won’t hurt anyone unless you pull the trigger, it also won’t warn you that someone is in the basement like a dog will.

      • Daniel Bonacum

        I fully understand phonograf, and totally agree. I own several Shiba Inu’s. Very intelligent, but weigh in at about 35 lbs a piece. Alone, they aren’t much of a threat – in packs they are dangerous as hell, the Japanese use them to hunt bears, and they where bread originally as protection for the emperors Still, its always a good idea to keep a firearm handy. (I own a 9 mm, because the ammo is common. My critical defense weapon is a Taurus Raging Judge – loaded with Casull .454 hollows. That too, can stop a bear.

        • TracyJean

          Cool. My oldest dog is a Shiba Inu. He’s 14 now and almost completely blind, but he would defend me to the death (along with the Sheltie and lab/chow mix)

    • http://twitter.com/dxrpi Daniel Reidy

      Why waste ammo…upgrade to .45 or .44 mag

      • sardiverdave

        Lots of people prefer a milder recoil, particularly with small hands. My go-to is an HK45, but my wife gravitates to the P30 9mm. With a good load (like the Federal HST in 147gr), the 9mm can be quite effective, more so than a large gun that’s difficult for some to control.

        • Thale Taxurfeet

          “Lots of people prefer a milder recoil, particularly with small hands.”

          That’s my wife. Iddy biddy, but a dead shot with a rifle, a 9mm or .38 cal sidearm.

          “the 9mm can be quite effective, more so than a large gun that’s difficult for some to control.”

          Center-punching anyone between two to a dozen times, regardless of caliber, even a bath-salts motivated lunatic, is bound to tip the scale of prevail towards the center-puncher vs. the center-punchee.

          • sardiverdave

            You’d think so, but I know a former Memphis Park Policeman who, with a .45ACP, center-punched a meth head multiple times. The perp fought on for 45 seconds or so. A lot can happen in 45 seconds before he dropped dead.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            I know. One of the retired LEO’s I know from sharing a deer lease had much the same happen to him. Luckily he’s a right sizable fellow. He took a couple of rounds from the bad guys 9mm, but like a Timex my bud kept on ticking until the bad guy was done in.

            There’s always that one in a thousand golem operating with a completely disengaged brain, i.e. running on a doped rage and muscle memory, at least until they bleed out.

          • tedlv

            I prefer face shots. Takes a little more practice, but it’s not that hard to hit. Keep up the target practice, if you can find rounds to do it. That has been my biggest problem lately.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            Regarding some items, I’ve been prepared –Boy Scout and old man instilled the trait– so finding rounds is not one of my main concerns.

            And with that thought of using enough of both the size/caliber and number on any threat… Please indulge me as I post a serious but somewhat humorous list of the rules for gunfighting from the USMC, Army, Navy and Air Force.

            Even though I was a sailor, the country boy in me has always personally clung to the USMC’s rules.

            USMC Rules For Gun Fighting

            Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns. Bring their friends who have guns.

            If you can, make friends with those on the crew served weapons. Bring them as well. Borrow money from them, it gives them an added incentive to protect you.

            Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.

            Only hits count. Close doesn’t count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.

            If your shooting stance is good, you’re probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.

            Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)

            If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.

            In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived and who didn’t.

            If you are not shooting, you should be communicating (calling for arty or air support), reloading, and running.

            Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting is more dependent on “pucker factor” than the inherent accuracy of the gun.

            Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. “All skill is in vain when an Angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket.”

            Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

            In combat, there are no rules, always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

            Have a plan.

            Have a back-up plan, because the first one won’t work.

            Have a back-up, back-up plan in case CentCom or SecDef finds the first two plans “unacceptable”.

            Use cover or concealment as much as possible. The only visible target should be in your gun sights.

            Flank your adversary when possible. Protect your flank.

            Don’t drop your guard.

            Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.

            Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them).

            Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.

            The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

            Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

            Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.

            Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.

            Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a “4.”

            Army Rules for Gun Fighting

            See USMC Rules to gun Fighting.

            Add 60 to 90 days.

            Hope the Marines already destroyed all meaningful resistance.

            Navy Rules for Gun Fighting

            Adopt an aggressive offshore posture.

            Send in the Marines.

            Drink Coffee and eat donuts.

            Air Force Rules for Gun Fighting

            Kiss the wife goodbye.

            Drive to the base in your sports car.

            Fly to target area, drop bombs, (try not to hit the Canuks) fly back to your home base.

            BBQ some burgers and drink beer in your back yard, and talk shit about the Navy, Army and Marines.

          • sardiverdave

            If you decide to shoot in those areas, you shouldn’t be firing the weapon at someone. If in a life threatening situation, and that’s the only one that should drive you to fire at someone, you need to shoot to stop the threat, and that means gunning for center mass/head. A flesh wound in the leg may not stop them, and a severed femoral artery would kill after a minute or two.

            “It should be a law that a homeowner gets to decide that an intruder is there to commit mayhem or murder and kill them on the spot.”

            In the state surrounding South Flownoverville there is such a law. It’s called the Castle Doctrine with a side order of no duty to retreat. The law essentially leaves the burden of judgment on the part of the homeowner.

            Absent evidence contradicting the homeowner’s perception/recounting of the invasion/deadly threat, the perp is DRT. Case closed. Next!

            Funny thing… My impression is that most of the home invasions resulting in the burglar being shot/wounded/killed of which I have read about and/or heard of, had the homeowner warning the intruder to leave before opening fire.

            Disclaimer: I’ll stand corrected if anyone is able to produce stats to refute my anecdotal impression.

          I remember hearing about this case Phil. It’s eerily similar to the Petit case. The only difference here, I believe, is that Virignia will execute the vermin before CT ever executes the two subhuman filth that we’re paying to house here. CT abolished the death penalty after the Petit case with the provision that it only apply to future cases. There is no doubt that they will commute the sentences of those who are now on death row.

        Which, if it ever went to court, would get the intruder a jury verdict of at most $1.

        But (A) the insurance company would settle it first and (B) tell her that “Suppose it hadn’t been an intruder? You’d have been in a lot of hot water, Ms Bruce! We’re telling you right now, fix it, or we will NOT defend you next time, if this ever happens again!”

        • tedlv

          Juries can award really big. A local retail store in a mini-mall is an example. There were signs all around the mall saying “No Skateboarding” I was in the store when an older man opened the door to leave. A skateboarder slammed into the door, knocking the man down, and the skateboarder’s nose was broken. The old man was shaken but OK. The skateboarder’s ma sued for $50K and won. There are many instances of juries awarding money from “deep pockets”.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            When it’s an out-and-out example of criminality, you would hope a jury would be more sensible than that, but the case you cite isn’t really of that nature. My point was that the insurance company could defend you vigorously, at some cost to themselves, or, as most HO policies tell you, they can settle out and ain’t a damned thing you can do about it. And they’d RATHER settle, and pay the intruder, to teach you a lesson about increasing their risk exposure for having to pay because YOU increased the hazard.

          • tedlv

            I actually think we’re making the same point. But if it did go to court, well, juries are really unpredictable.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            And you’d be lucky if the insurer kept you on, at a higher premium, because by rights, they could simply drop you. Then you’d have a problem with your mortgagee, who would tell you to get some HO policy, ANY HO policy, whatever the cost, or they might call your loan in. Standing on principle of “A person’s home is their castle” is one thing, but business is business, unfortunately. It’s all about the “scarool.”

          • tedlv

            People can be “sue” happy. I have been sued because I caused a drawbridge to open so my sailboat could go through. A drunk in an El Camino decided to “Dukes of Hazard” the bridge. It didn’t work out well. The bridge keeper pulled his wife out of the burning vehicle. The state and I won that one.
            I live on a hill. Across the road, there is a house that is in a geological “bowl”; no way for rainwater to run off. The occupant took me to court because the runoff from my front pasture flooded his yard. That one lost, too.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Trust me, somewhere along the line some insurance company paid out to somebody, and having done so, then succeeded to all rights to sue that the insured may have had, under what is called the “right of subrogation.” As you may know, insurers don’t like to have to pay out, and will look to recoup the money somehow. Now, with Obamacare and higher deductibles (not to sidetrack the discussion too much, but this is relevant) your health care insurer, based on what is called “co-ordination of benefits,” is going to want to know any other policy you have that could possibly pay medical costs, like a no-fault auto policy, or if you’re going to make a claim against someone’s HO policy, whether you were injured on their premises, in which case there is provision in most HO policies for a no-questions-asked emergency medical treatment for guests payment. Otherwise, they go after the liability insurance.

            In both instances where you were sued and you prevailed, it would probably be considered such a no-hoper by the plaintiff’s insurer that they wouldn’t sue and waste the money doing so, you would think, and so the plaintiffs probably got some jackleg shyster on contingency who thought (s)he could squeeze blood from a stone if they were just persistent enough against your insurer. Your insurer probably figured they could tell that pettifogger to pound sand, and eventually pay zilch, and that some cases where the facts are clear are worth defending, just so people won’t get the idea they can shake down insurance companies anytime they feel like it.

          • tedlv

            My insurance company was never notified.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Then, when they look at your court history later on (Lexis search, to see if there are any other pending cases or any prior unresolved ones), should you ever need to report an incident happening to you, they can bust your chops about not having informed them about something that was more than just a de minimis problem that would have been eaten up by the deductible on your policy. They can cancel your policy for non-disclosure of matters increasing the hazard of what their exposure might be. And they’ll go to court first, to get a declaratory judgment saying “no deal,” even before you try to sue them to make them cover your claim. Can’t win with these jokers, and you’re knocked around from pillar to post.

    • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

      First off, there is no way in heck I would live in a place with an outside-access basement unless there was absolutely no other choice. Then, I would have the doors chained, triple locked, caulked shut and a surveillance camera installed. Really don’t like those outside access basements.

      • Thale Taxurfeet

        “First off, there is no way in heck I would live in a place with an outside-access basement unless there was absolutely no other choice. “

        Unless I’m mistaken, most locales now specify in the building code at least one door must be included in all new construction home basements. I know it’s been that way since maybe the 70’s here in Flownoverville.

        The old hacienda here in Green Acres has a couple of solid wood core, steel-sheathed, with double cylinder deadbolts doors. The doors at the top and bottom of the basement stairs to the living areas are solid, vs. hollow wood with double-cylinder deadbolts.

        By the time anyone picks those locks and or bangs the doors open, then climbs the noisy wooden stairs, I’ve had time to grab a firearm, a cellphone, and a sandwich.

        The security of your average sliding patio door is much easier to defeat, -those patio doors without perimeter locking bolts Correction: on all four sides on three of the four sides*- and harder for the homeowner to secure than solid wooden doors sheathed in steel regardless of their location in the structure. Much like windows are usually easy access points of entry for the determined criminal.

        Another good reason to add a canine security system to the house. 😉

    If you are a black person and you actually have fallen for the “white privilege” line, then explain to me please, how being a color other than white prevents you from calling the police. If you mean to suggest black people are less capable of owning a phone than a white person, I would suggest you are full of crap and also suggest you stop self-deprecating.

    The neighborhood I live in has more dark skinned people living in it than pale skinned people like myself, and guess what, every person I know in this neighborhood has land lines in their home or cellphones in their hands.

    But again, your comment isn’t about the ability of minorities to call the police, have basic access to services or even “white privilege”. Your comment is about perpetuating the myth that ALL, OR THE MAJORITY of republicans are racist. You want to draw out the racist person and get them to make a racist, mean and insulting comment so that you can reinforce your own delusion.

    BTW, please don’t make these silly comments, I hate feeling like I need to defend republicans. The only thing worse is defending liberals. Both leave a bitter taste in the mouth of this libertarian.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      In my experience people need guns because people with dogs are as reckless with them as liberals think all gun owners are with their guns. Strangely enough, this only applies to liberal dog owners IME, but in a land where there are a lot of liberals…

      • Thale Taxurfeet

        “Unless, of course, your cat’s named “Bob”:”

        We’ve semi-domesticated cats that are allegedly crossed with a bobcat –Or as Jerry Clower said, semi-souped up wildcats.

        One of those rascals does growl when strangers approach the front or rear doors. Sorta weird like growl as if it thinks it’s a lion. And for some reason, most visitors to the hacienda at Green Acres are a little stand-offish when the 20 pound cats that look like the above meander by.

        P.S. Having one of those wild wildcat/bobcat rascals mistake you for a deer when you’re returning from a deer stand, on foot, after dark, can be quite exhilarating. Don’t ask me how I know.

        • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

        • Maryland_Malcontent

          …that sounds like a dog with some discipline issues. I’ve had too much experience with those here in the land where dog training and restraint are considered “cruelty” or the dog owners are just too darned lazy to do it.

      • Maryland_Malcontent

        Wow, those are some aggressive prostitutes! 😉

        I’m hoping that you aren’t one of the too-many people who let their over-aggressive hellhounds wander about the neighborhood on their own recognizance and/or take it out walking without a leash and let it accost bystanders such as myself because of lacking initiative to train the dog to behave or because leashes are “cruelty”.

        Here in narcissist-land, dog owners are like that, by and large.

    German Shepherds are the greatest for detecting unusual sounds or voices. I swear my six year old female Shepherd has radar ears, she can hear if someone is walking their dog past the house. People just don’t think about trespassing when you have one, regardless of how friendly the seem.

    • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

      I love how frightened most people are of big, scary pitbulls. I have yet to meet one that wasn’t just a big kisser. I bought my last used car from a guy in an industrial area of body shops & who knows what else in the city. While I was looking over the car, a huge pitbull from the neighboring shop came flying right at me. Without even thinking, I just opened my arms and probably said something stupid like, “Puppy!”. The dog landed with its paws on my shoulders and greeted me like a long lost friend. It’s a good thing it wasn’t someone else that dog came at or they could have had a lawsuit on their hands.

      • tedlv

        We “adopted” a stray pit bull puppy. She terrorized our other dogs and destroyed a lit of stuff we liked. We placed an ad in the paper and let someone else adopt her. This one, I think, was already being trained to fight. If you don’t train a dog to be vicious, it generally won’t be.

        • Thale Taxurfeet

          “If you don’t train a dog to be vicious, it generally won’t be.”

          Yup. Most animals will adopt the attitude and mannerisms of the owner/handler or bend to their training, if that is their lot in life.

          We’ve had boxers, a German Shepherd, and a long time ago, a Malamute. All were loving, loyal, obedient and restrained, but in Condition One around strangers.

          These creatures have earned their title as [Wo]Mans best friend.

    • Kevis

      4 Shepherd mixes live here. Nothing gets by them. Friendly, playful dogs, but they raise Cain if anything comes up near the house.

    • waltzingmtilda

      Love Shepherds, one of my top three breeds. My bestie growing up always had one.
      As we speak, my Great Pyr mix is out back barking her head off. I never met a dog who could bark for as long as she can. It drives me crazy (our Berner never barked but she was very big, and the sweetest thing ever), BUT I know it’s intimidating to anyone who can hear her. She’s a big old baby but you’d never know it from her bark. She sounds like a killer.

  • Bob Williams

    I just love Tammy Bruce. And if she ever decides to go straight – even for 15 minutes – I hope that she gives me a call. It will be the best 15 minutes of her life! What do you folks want – I’m 74 years old, for God’s sake! ;))

  • Michelle ✓classified

    Well, OK. I’ll take this at face value and believe it…for what it’s worth. However, three minutes between “Cops are here” and she’s talked to them, not heading into the basement while she tends to her Twitter account is a wee bit unrealistic to me. I’m former LAPD and even on the two occasions I’ve had to call 911 for the LASD due to strange and alarming noises in or around my house, that exchange took more than 2-3 minutes, and even after the deputies went on the hunt, last thing I thought of was to update my Twitter account. If this situation is entirely true, then consider me very grateful she wound up safe and sound, but at the same time, finding it a minor bit hard to believe the timeline.

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      Seeing every other driver on the road twiddling with their schmart phone rather than concern themselves with such trivial details as guiding the effin’ 2+ ton missile, I have no reason to doubt Ms. Bruce, but I can agree with you on average LEO response times when a call is made to 911.

      When my better half was with child, our final contribution to the population about a 1/4 century ago, she had reason to call 911 one evening while I was away. It took well over a half hour — I think the wife recalls exactly how long, to the minute– before the Deputy arrived on site.

      And I’ve a gaggle of retired LEO’s for friends. To a one, they will be the first to admit that, depending on the roll of the dice, you may be waiting a while for the Law to show up after you make a call to 911. Plan accordingly, but I know you know that. 😉

    • http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1181/6595/original.jpg filter

      Could it be possible that a patrol car was in the area at the time of her call? Perhaps someone had called on him earlier from another nearby location and they were on the bolo?
      Typing a few lines; whether it be chat, IM or tweets; seems no different to me than someone talking on the phone.

      Seen one “cops” show where a women was on her cell phone seconds after being t-boned and her kids were still in the car! The cops, even her husband were there so she wasn’t calling for them.

      • Thale Taxurfeet

        “a women was on her cell phone seconds after being t-boned and her kids were still in the car!”

        Ha! That reminds me of a particular misty mornings commute shortly after moving to Green Acres. Some of the roads out in the sticks around here are hilly, twisty, are/were barely two lanes. At one real tight S turn I saw a lady flip her car via approaching the S too fast then using the good old over-steer/slide/over-correct maneuver. I was less that a quarter of a mile away from her when it happened. By the time I got to her car, she was still suspended in her seat-belt, upside down and yapping to her husband on the cellphone. I suggested and offered to help her get out of the vehicle, it was in the middle of the road… She waved me off. Alright, adiós!

        Cellphones. How did humanity ever get along before cellphones?

      “Apartments have basements?”

      Heh. That does sound pretty strange. On the other hand, townhouses often have basements.

      Ah, let me put it this way. When I lived in the metro area surrounding Washington, D.C. one of the first homes I owned was a townhouse, and it had a basement. If memory serves, most of the townhouses we shopped when looking to buy that first home in the D.C. area and close to my work had basements.
