They use that in Savanna, GA quite a lot.

So they do use this in the States! I just replied to someone else saying that I’ve seen it in multiple places in Europe but never here.

Have seen in Louisiana, but I believe it's illegal in most of the Great Lakes states.

I have seen such things more than once. It is used as a deterrent for thieves to avoid them climbing over the boundary wall or fence. Broken glass bottles and shards of glass mixed into the concrete that finish off the top of the wall.


Xaionara t1_j2fhflm wrote

What if you throw your jacket over the shards and just climb on that?


Yilidus t1_j2fihvc wrote

Well that could be fine, as you might find the owner with a nice shotgun pointed at you...or a nice big dog ready to play with you ;)

If you bring food to an Italian, be prepared to be exorcised :)

I’ve had to be exercised after leaving an Italian. So much pasta and pizza

I recall seeing it around other places in Europe too. Never in the states. Incidentally this was taken the day of Kayne and Kims wedding there. RIP.

Where I was in Afghanistan, the Head Mistress(?) of the girls school did this to the walls around their school because Taliban would jump up on the walls and throw acid on the girls. I don’t recall seeing these walls in any of the boys’ schools.

That is fucking awful. Acid wounds are horrific.

I first saw that in Mexico about 30 years ago.

Zoning in the US pushes towards the more elegant decorative spikes.

My understanding is most places in the US won’t allow this, and barbed wire is only allowed in places not zoned for residential. Pretty silly but them are the rules

Very common sight in most third world country….

It is pretty common in Mexico.

Surprisingly, in Texas that’s a felony.

Houston, TX. Allot of places in bad neighborhoods will bury heavy glass bottles in cement sticking out of the top of cinder block walls, then break them off to keep thieves out of car repair storage yards, etc.

I went to Venezuela when I was 12, and all the yards and stuff in the little town I was in, had fences like this. With sharp metal and broken glass.

Seems necessary when windows are just holes.

The walls at the royal castle at Windsor have the same.

Throw a thick rug over top like you see in the entrances of restaurants or stores and that glass is no problemo

100% illegal in the UK. That's pre meditated assault

Ow ,holy shit, imagine accidentally parachuting on to that.


Beneficial_Step9088 t1_j2fggp6 wrote

I could have sworn I saw this on top of the wall around the Dupont estate as a child, but I could be misremembering.

Broken glass is a common deterrent in third world countries. I've seen it in India, Chile, the middle east, and Africa.

Florence, Florence, who the glass is Florence?!

Often seen on tops of residential garden walls in the uk
