Jesse, This is a horrendous story! Think I might take up sharp shooting and  
go for both kneecaps. Kathy (who likes to think of herself as  non-violent!)

I live  in the country and have "no trespassing" signs all over the  fence
line.  My husband put up security cameras, security lights (this  guys knows
the cameras are there and he wears a hoodie jacket and covers  his face..we
have that on film, but no face so it doesn't do us any good)  and we also
hired a retired swat/policeman to sit out here one night.   The peeping tom
usually shows up on a full moon because it's so  bright.  But he also watches
from a distance - and I think he knew the  cop was out there waiting on him
because he didn't show up that  night.  That police officer said he would be
happy to loan us 2-3  police dogs but we declined because I didn't want an
altercation with MY  dogs.  We flat out told the Sheriff's office that if we
see him again,  we're gonna shoot 'em in the *ss and feel sorry about it
later.  My  husband went to high school with the sheriff and the district
attorney -  both of them said "Robert - if it were ME, I would feel the same
way - and  we may have to go through the "formalities" of arresting you if
you did  it..but I doubt anything would happen.  Or, we might just have to
look  the other way or say it was self-defense, so don't shoot him in the
*ss,  shoot him in the knee cap!"As far as getting sued for the dog biting  or
attacking - I doubt that would happen.  We have multiple complaints  filed
with the sheriff's office and a description of the perp - and they  KNOW who
he is but have to catch him in the act.  He has a record for  indecent
exposure and disorderly conduct.  AND I have worked in the  legal field for
years and have some really good attorneys that would  represent us if that
were to happen.  I think everybody around here  would like to beat the guy to
a pulp.  He targets houses with young  girls (I have four girls) and BLONDES
of all things (I'm blonde, two of my  daughters are blonde). This guy always
leaves a "sign" that he was here -  just so you know.  He leaves a cigarette
butt on our porch, unscrews  the outdoor light bulbs, opens a pasture gate -
and he is very savvy.   He is an ex-military guy and knows how to get around
this area.  He  travels down the creek so he isn't caught.  I have, on  frosty
mornings, seen his footprints outside my bedroom window and my  girls
