Dap lois for ladrones
If I ever decide to become the long-term owner-occupier of a country property here, my plan is this:
I will only buy a property that I can afford to encircle with two perimeters of chain link fences. The corridor between the two fences will be mined with toe-poppers. The outer perimeter will be electrified by heavy-duty rechargeable batteries and posted with warning signs in Spanish, as well as graphics for the illiterate. The inner perimeter will be high but not electrified.
I have learned enough about the Nicaraguan legal code to know that this would be in full compliance with the law. Nonetheless, I would give the local police chief and fiscal a tour to let them know what I am doing in advance.
Word would spread fast in the local community of vagos about the defense system but a few of them will be bold enough to press their luck. A few unfortunate encounters would ensue, followed by a long, long, long period of peace and quiet.
