Retired Cop Hung This Sign Outside His Home. Then Someone Decided To Put It To The Test!

When it comes to criminals, some people have no patience and for good reason, as the majority of them are a detriment to society. Communities that have a lot of criminals are less likely to thrive, which really ruins it for those who dedicate their lives to being good members of society. Retired Massachusetts police officer, Chuck Jackson has no sympathy for criminals, which is why he put a sign on his house that said: “Never mind the dog, beware of owner.”

Jackson noticed a man dressed in black checking car doors on his street early Sunday morning and when he asked him what he was doing, the suspect didn’t respond.

“I heard Chuck saying, ‘What are you doing here?’ and on the third time that’s when I went to the window to see what was going on,” neighbor Jonathan Rodrigues shared.

After Jackson confronted the suspect, Zackery Bailey, the two got into a fight and Jackson continued to ask Bailey why he was on his property. In the midst of the altercation, Jackson fired a handgun, proving that he was very serious about the sign that hung on his house.

Rodrigues described the situation…

“In a split second, one shot goes off and then Chuck falls back and the kid falls back and kind of runs. That’s when Chuck fires again,” he recalled. “Chuck had his badge out saying, ‘I’m an officer.’ “To just keep going further with it is just foolish.”

Later, police found Bailey with two gunshot wounds and arrested him on a separate warrant for breaking and entering.

“I’m glad he was able to protect himself,” Chris Deperrio told MassLive.com. “I’d like to hope it was a random thing and that he wasn’t targeted.”

Several commenters cheered the officer on…

“Way to go, Officer!! I reside in Nashville & there is a HUGE problem with “Young Thugs”! They steal cars, rob people blind & also commit Murder!! It’s totally out of control here, but my city is run by a bunch of LibTards, so Nothing will be done to fix this. That’s why I have Guns! Thank Goodness we have the right to defend ourselves!!”

“Retired or not, good shot officer.”

“I would have heeded a sign saying “Watchdog on duty” showing a Chihuahua. A sign with a person holding a gun would have made me leave the neighborhood.”

“I have that exact same sign posted next to the house door inside of my garage. Hope I never have to act on it like this guy did. Living in California I might face prison time for even thinking about it.”

“It is the only way we are going to slow down all these thieves. To protect ourselves and our property. We cannot let the thugs do what they want and get away with it. It’s just not right to let the criminals win.”

Hopefully, this incident helps stop other thieves before they attempt to commit a crime against someone or something. A less was certainly taught in this situation.

A Huge Caravan Of Central Americans Is Headed For The US, And No One In Mexico Is Stopping Them!

sub-buzz-8514-1522376172-5

Taking a drag from her cigarette, a Mexican immigration agent looked out toward a caravan of migrants that grew larger with each step they took on the two-lane highway.

When the agent, who’d covered her uniform with an orange and white shawl, learned that the Central American migrants heading her way numbered more than 1,000, she took off for the restaurant across the street.

“I’m going to have a relaxing Coke,” she told BuzzFeed News.

For five days now hundreds of Central Americans — children, women and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration check points, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them.

Organized by a group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the caravan is intended to help migrants safely reach the United States, not only bypassing authorities who would seek to deport them, but gangs and cartels who are known to assault vulnerable migrants.

Organizers like Rodrigo Abeja hope that the sheer size of the crowd will give immigration authorities and criminals pause before trying to stop them.

“If we all protect each other we’ll get through this together,” Abeja yelled through a loudspeaker on the morning they left Tapachula, on Mexico’s border with Guatemala, for the nearly monthlong trek.

When they get to the US, they hope American authorities will grant them asylum or, for some, be absent when they attempt to cross the border illegally. More likely is that it will set up an enormous challenge to the Trump administration’s immigration policies and its ability to deal with an organized group of migrants numbering in the hundreds.

The number of people who showed up to travel with the caravan caught organizers by surprise, and overwhelmed the various towns they’ve stopped in to spend the night. Pueblos Sin Fronteras counted about 1,200 people on the first day.

About 80% of them are from Honduras. Many said they are fleeing poverty, but also political unrest and violence that followed the swearing in of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez after a highly contested election last year. The group often breaks into chants of “Out with JOH.” They also chant “we aren’t immigrants, we’re international workers” and “the people united will never be defeated.”

Sweating after miles of walking in more than 90-degree heat with her two kids, Karen said conditions in Honduras were so bad she decided to take a chance with the caravan. She declined to give her full name.

“The crime rate is horrible you can’t live there,” Karen told BuzzFeed News on the side of a highway near Huixtla, a town in Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state. “After the president (was sworn in) it got worse. There were deaths, mobs, robbed homes, adults and kids were beaten up.”

Before setting foot on the journey, the migrants were organized into groups of 10 to 15 people, and a leader was designated for each group. Five groups were then banded together in what organizers call a sector. While there are organizers from Pueblos Sin Fronteras leading the way, much of the effort to get to the US border is in the hands of the migrants themselves.

They’ve been organized into security, food, and logistics committees. Organizers say it’s meant to help the migrants empower themselves.

Sandra Perez, 40, who’s also from Honduras, is one of two women who belong to the security committee. It’s not her first caravan, she has traveled with a procession of Central American mothers through Mexico in search of disappeared migrants.

“I like doing this, it makes me happy and I feel useful,” she told BuzzFeed News.

Twenty-nine-year old Mateo Juan said the caravan was his third attempt at getting to the United States. Seven months ago, Mexican immigration officers pulled him off the bus. The same happened about a month ago.

He heard about the caravan in March when he arrived in Tapachula, the caravan’s starting point.

“Going alone is risky, you’re risking an accident, getting jumped by robbers, and even your life,” he told BuzzFeed News. “All of that, and then you don’t get to the United States. The caravan is slower but you know you’re going to get there safely.”

Still, there are no guarantees on the route or assurances that once they reach the US border they’ll be able to cross undetected or be allowed to stay under some type of protection like asylum.

Alex Mensing, another organizer with Pueblos Sin Fronteras, made that point clear to the migrants before the group started out. He also stressed that everyone is responsible for their own food, water, and payment for vans or buses. Still, it’s far cheaper than being assaulted or falling into the hands of unscrupulous smugglers.

“I’m here to work together with the people who had to leave their countries for whatever reason,” Mensing said through a loudspeaker. “We’re fighting together. We’re not here to give anyone papers and we’re not here to give anyone food.”

Mensing said Pueblos Sin Fronteras isn’t calling on people to make the trek, but if they’re going to try to go through Mexico on the way to the United States, the group will help them.

The caravan propels itself forward using whatever way it can. Sometimes that means packing into the back of a truck, negotiating lower rates for vans, or hitching a ride on the back of empty big rigs from whatever town they’re in. The group sleeps in town plazas. Local townspeople and churches feed them.

In the evening, when the group settles in for the night, the kids play in playgrounds or dart among the crowd, chasing each other. Teenagers and adults play soccer using rocks as goal posts.

On Tuesday, the caravan had plans to board the freight train known as “The Beast” or sometimes “The Train of Death” in Arriaga to speed the journey north. It’s a dangerous part of the journey, with death and injury only too possible from a precarious perch atop a rail car, and the group practiced boarding, one woman in a purple shirt slowly making her way up a parked train’s ladder while the crowd below cheered her on. On another train car, men wearing backpacks steadily made their way up one by one.

“This is so the women and children can lose their fear, know what it’s like to board the train, and turn back if they want,” Irineo Mujica, director of Pueblos Sin Fronteras, told the crowd.

But the train Mujica hoped would move the entire group to Puebla, one of their stops, never came, and in the end, the group boarded trucks and school buses to cover the distance to San Pedro Tapanatepec, a town in the Mexican state of Oaxaca.

The move to the trucks was frantic, as people jostled for the limited space, and the security committees made a chain to hold people back. Mostly women and children wearing backpacks and carrying jugs of water got on the first truck.

Moving the entire group took hours, and some of the men, unable to gain a space in the vehicles, walked all night to join the rest of the group. On Friday, Good Friday, the organizers hope to board “The Beast” at another location.

Mujica said he was left with a sense of disbelief at seeing so many people go through such hardship in search of a better life.

“I can’t imagine my son walking on top of these trains, I can’t imagine hiding my children just to get to a city that’s four hours away,” Mujica said. “These are good people who are suffering as if they were slaves and putting their kids’ lives at risk. But it is what it is.”
