What I don't get is... why in god's name did this person think he needed to take this level of precaution... in Maine??

This isn't fucking Detroit, or some war-zone in Ethiopia. The worst threat you'll face in Maine is a rabid raccoon, or an aggressively inert snowman.
Read the article, the guy lives on the border next to Canada, god knows what sick filth and Yanivery might be lurking nearby.

I have nothing against people who rig deathtraps to keep repeat thieves out of their stores and homes (especially if the cops refuse to do anything about it.) But the State happens to be really jealous of that whole "arbiter of death" thing. They don't want some Gizmoduck Boomer to muscle in on their criminal killing territory, so the only way they'll allow Joe Homeowner to defend himself is in person, and under imminent threat.

That being said, if Joe wants to put a crocodile pit and trap door below the window of his treasure room, then I'm certainly not one to try and stop him. 99 percent of people will never have a legitimate reason to enter a house by its window anyway, so good riddance to them...

Whats the legality of a non lethal trap like this. Like say a bucket of pure capsacian dropped on the intruders head. Or pepperball shots. Or skunk spray

I'm no expert, but I am willing to bet a decent amount of money that it's illegal. Also, pure capsacian can absolutely kill someone.
