Doesn't alter the fact that if the intruder had stayed in his OWN home that night or gone for a game of tennis instead of invading someone ELSE's home and traumatising the victims --- then he'd have an intact skull today

Bit extreme, isn't it?

In my opinion, this man should never have been jailed in the first place. I mean, the intruders tied up his family. What is the UK coming to when you cannot defend your own home? The authorities say that if you have an intruder, you must remain calm and call the police.
Stuff that for a game of soliders. If my family is under threat, you had better believe that I am going to get violent. It is okay for members or parliament to advocate this, they do not need to worry. They have armed police protection, who would not think twice about opening fire on you should you be the intruder.
Opinions please. Do you think that a citizen has the right to use physical force in order to protect his home and family from attack?
Originally posted by unicorn1He didn't exactly follow through in a rush of adrenaline. He and his brother proceeded to carry out a sustained and violent attack. Let's not pretend this was self defence.
But the court has accepted he was emotionally destabilised by the incident and let him go. Not so with his bother.
I think this is the right decision.
Do we really want a society where people take the law into their own hands and extract their own vengeance?
What if you end up the innocent victim of a mistaken attack?
I'm sorry to say I think this is also a race issue.
