      That's terrible. I guess the economy is somewhat to blame, but why do they need to smash everything up? @sshats!

        Maybe spotting recording cameras at various rural intersections could identify and track vehicles caught on private security cameras. Not sure though where that would help though in nailing down exactly where they are going. I’d guess that they have stolen plates in their vehicles so even if a plate number is obtained it wouldn’t help.

            Ya Kc regarding that article... so it’s a handful of communities that make up the overwhelming majority of the rural claims, and the majority of the claims aren’t property related they are things like disturbing the peace or physical assault. It also hits on under reporting in cities. Just like I didn’t report my garage being entered when I left the door unlocked last month.

            The study notes the overall downward trend of crime. Nor does it seem to distinguish from towns like Stettler from its actual rural areas.

              Yeah rural is a term like downtown- everyone has a different definition.

              Statistics have always been know to be distorting reality. Crimes get recorded differently in cities, say Edmonton and Calgary, and so one looks worse than the other.

                I had trail cams stolen from my property that's on a dead end road in the middle of nowhere. The only ones who would be on this road would be locals. My property is 80% trees over a massive area... cameras were a fair ways out of site.

                While I feel for rural crime issues its little things like this that make you question your neighbors.

                    A nice farm security gate:

                    If it’s faked, then that’s really cool.



                    I bet some unemployed Alberta welder with access to a small crane could make a go of it by manufacturing these.

                      "That's when he started popping shots," Mills recalled. "We're on the phone with the RCMP from Lac La Biche. And I told them, they're heading their way. They should intercept him. And then I said the guy was shooting at us. The officer said 'If you shoot at him, I'm going to charge you with manslaughter.' I said I'm not shooting at him. He's shooting at us."
