The cops could do nothing while the squatters were in possession of the house. and there was no law stopping the owner from boarding up the place.
But when the last one left the owner had control again and could make a citizen's arrest for theft.

I'm fairly confident the only states you can kill an intruder, are redneck states which disagree with human rights and Natural/Common Law.
Trespassing is trespassing, it's not directly a motive to MURDER someone. And a jury can still find you guilty despite the law.

It is nice you stand up for minorities. Yet i find it reprehensible you would label an entire "state" as a "redneck state" because they don't follow what you call "natural/common law".
Did you know that natural/common law allows for killing someone who is in your home threatening you? There is no human rights violation for shooting a home invader.
I live in a state well known for shooting home invaders. Come in my house unauthorized, you MIGHT get warned to leave before i end your life. Too many people get their doors kicked in because the residents of that house do not defend themselves appropriately.
Call me a redneck all you want. My reputation on this site is solid, and I am as far from redneck as you will find. The next time you take comfort in saying that you stand up for minorities, remind yourself that labeling an entire, multimillion person segment of humanity as a redneck is no less bigoted. It might even be viewed as hypocritical.

The article doesn't specify whether Angie is a council tenant, as in the pensioner case.
It seems plausible that a gang would find council properties more vulnerable, because taking action to get the house back would be delayed by regulations and bureaucratic processes.

I have to say that eastern europeans are a proven criminal element that we dont want here... Just a few weeks ago a group of romanians turned up at a site my cousin was working on in Sedgley and threatened the builders, then stole all the copper including the boilers for the heating systems..
