It is frightening that trespass is regarded by some here as a crime which can be punished by summary execution without trial.

In some other jurisdictions, trespass is a civil matter, with civil penalties concordant with the "damage" caused. (Used to be six pence or one shilling, if I remember correctly). If theft occurred, it was not trespass, but theft. There are in most jurisdictions sanctions in place in criminal law for that transgression.

Anybody "unsure of present position" should crap themselves if that happens when they are in the USA. They might be trespassing. Best to have made a will and provided for their dependants.
