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.
