How does your Security compare.

This should prove to be an interesting story to follow. There is and has been a lot of interesting discussion in these forums regarding guns, tazers, mace, pepper spray, bear spray and even insect repellent. The two guys in this story have evidently taken it to the extreme.

That must be a dummy grenade, like the ones mounted on a board with a sign saying "pull pin for service".

Follow ups on the article do say that they were dummy grenades. Evidently the RV had been broken into once already and these two rocket scientists thought that hanging a couple of grenades on the door with a warning sign would be a deterrent.

I'm suprised that someone did not steal the grenades.

As stated in the article, eve if they are dummies it is still a violation of the law.

I wonder how much it is going to cost them in "responder's" time and effort.
