If you witness someone robbing your neighbor's house and you own a weapon, should you put yourself at risk by intervening? Or should you immediately call the police? What are the lines of bystander intervention, when the property of someone else is getting pillaged?
AITA for letting my neighbors house get robbed?
A little backstory, I was in the military for 5 years, have been in the SWAT team for 3. I own A LOT of guns, I know how to use them very well.
OP already knew that the neighbors were out of town to see sick family.
I live at home with my GF and our newborn. My next door neighbors had gone out of town to visit the husbands' sick mother. My bedroom directly faces their backyard. I go to sleep pretty late most nights, and around 1AM I see 4 masked guys busting a*s through my backyard and hopping the fence in to my neighbors. They then proceed to break the latch on my neighbors back door, and head inside.
