NBC’s idea of home invasion defense: Bug spray, treat burglar ‘like royalty’

A veteran police officer appeared a few days ago on NBC’s “The Today Show” to give defense tips against home invasions. A few of the tips contradict one another, one was illegal, and none of them included the use of firearms. The NRA had a better idea.

NBC correspondent Jeff Rossen began the segment by noting some recent reports of home invasions that made the headlines, according to NBC News, including the following:

In June, an intruder broke into Sandra Bullock’s Los Angeles home and got within steps of the star’s bedroom. On Aug. 14, NBA star Ray Allen’s family was hit, waking up to find seven intruders in their Coral Gables, Florida, home. Not even the Kennedys are immune: On July 15, an intruder got into their sprawling compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.

Rossen also cited FBI statistics indicating that 2011 saw almost 50,000 home invasions, or about 135 per day.
