Forget about the picturesque picket fence. The white curbside darling has had its day. So close to growing urban city networks, even residential compounds are turning to specially prepared security barbed wire for their security requirements. Many housing and residential complex developments have simply followed the lead of those walled in communities that have been typical of the far wealthier and affluent of society.
Those who acted as naysayers before will be lucky enough to tell the tale if they have not been compromised. But it has happened. And it continues to happen. Property owners, commercial, industrial and residential, continue to be victims of high crime rates across rural, semi-urban and urban city networks and industrial hubs. All across the land, law enforcement agencies continue to do sterling work.
But there are limits, even at the best of times. At the worst of times, law courts are in overdrive handling not just criminal cases but civil and property suit cases as well. Insurance companies will not part with a dollar more, given what they have had to pay out before. And they have no alternative but to burden their policy holders with additional staff costs in the form of claims assessors and loss adjusters.
Private investigations do not come cheaply. This is only touching the tip of the iceberg. More tales of woe and despair could be told to motivate those still new to the fortress mentality to harness themselves with security barbed wire. It is felt that enough has been said. And those who have experienced the brunt of criminal acts have taken drastic steps to improve their safety and security. Of course, still more can be done. The use of barbed wire, however, continues to send an imposing message to would be intruders.
