A man who stabbed to death an armed intruder at his home was jailed for eight years.

Carl Lindsay, 25, answered a knock at his door in Salford, Greater Manchester, to find four men armed with a gun.

When the gang tried to rob him he grabbed a samurai sword and stabbed one of them, 37-year-old Stephen Swindells, four times.

Mr Swindells, of Salford, was later found collapsed in an alley and died in hospital.

Can you believe this? What is the world coming to? If someone breaks into your home attempting to rob and possibly kill you, and you defend yourself, you get charged!?!?!? That's insane... I am pissed about this one. The EU government needs to pull their head out of their arse.

Mr. M

The UK law is utter bollocks. A similar thing happened a few years ago when Tony Martin, shot a burgler and killed him. Martin's farmhouse had been robbed about 13 times and the cops did fook all about it. So he sat waiting for them the next time with a loaded shotgun.

As I have said before, the law isn't about justice.
