On Wednesday KFYO News reported that authorities found no evidence of a home invasion at the home of 55-year-old Debbie Hill in the 5900 block of 72nd Street. If you remember, on Tuesday Hill called 911 to report that 2 Hispanic males had broken into her home. When police arrived Hill had a gunshot wound to her leg and she said that the home invaders had shot her.

Alright, so it looks like this woman made the whole thing up. It also looks like Hill has a lot more problems than just a gunshot wound to the leg.

BUT...

While the story that Hill told police was false, the treat of home invasions isn't. It doesn't matter where you live in Lubbock, the treat is still there. Unfortunately Hills lies will do harm to others in that part of town. Many people will forget about the threat and believe that no harm will ever come to their home. That my friends is the wrong attitude to have.

On Wednesday's show we talked about how important it is to be able to defend yourself and your home. That fact doesn't change just because of one person's lies. We see news stories every day of home invasions all throughout Texas and the United States. So why take the chance?

Don't be pulled into a false sense of security just because you live in the "good part of town." Do you really think most people think that they will be targets? You hardly ever hear of someone on the news say, "no, I'm really not surprised that we had a home invasion. I mean, look where I live."

Be prepared and keep your family and yourself safe.
