I hate it when people misuse Paintball markers. It just makes the sport and players look like thugs. They should think about the trouble they are going to bring before they do it. People need to educate themselves: http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-safety.htm

When I was a member there it always astounded me that so many people left their lockers unlocked. Easy pickings for the likes of these two.

this has been happening at some of the gyms i go to as well. to avoid an cross fire if you will have instead opted to ride my se road bike http://2wheelbikes.com/lager-11-fixed-gear-single-speed-bike.html swim at my house, hike, etc to avoid any issues that may arise at the gym. its really disturbing.

In no way am I condoning the idiots who were stealing things out of people's lockers at the gym, but a lot of this could have been prevented if the club members just spent a few dollars on a lock, instead of risking the loss of belongings that are worth much more. I belong to LA Fitness and I wouldn't even think of leaving my stuff in a locker (in any gym!) without a lock. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there with a lack of morals, and it is our responsibility as citizens to do what we can to protect ourselves.

Folks, Ryan Davin has burglarized my home over 7 times in the last 2 years after delivering furniture to my address. Realizing I was ill and having major surgery, he broke in and stole needed pain med! When caught , the DA convinced me it was a first offense and let him go to rehab and no contact with me...of course , he broke in a second story window for more...kicked one of my dogs and ransacked the house stealing whatever he could pawn...the next time he broke my garage door and knocked the interior dead bolt locked door right off the frame. We were in court for sentencing on July 31st and my attorney said surely he would stop since he had charges of 4 felonies and 5 misdameanors now...however apparently he doesn't care. I have full video tape of him burglarizing my home and bought a weapon. No one should reduce sentencing...he is not someone who will rehab...been there , done that!! PLEASE KEEP HIM LOCKED UP!
