if the old lady had a handgun, this would have never happened. its that simple.
That must be a special type of handgun only sold in America that stops little old ladies falling down manholes in the dark.
Gotta get me one of those.
Btw, when the little old ladies have pistols, the louts in street gangs have Uzis.
Gun makers get rich and no-one's any safer.
Last night Mrs Ward’s devastated family called for police to wake up to the ‘disease’ of anti-social behaviour.

To be totally honest this is all going to far.
My thinking is (Male, 18 years old) if you take a life, You get your taken away from you. If your guillty without and question,
You should be taken out back and delt with.
I am sick to the back teeth with the these dickheads ruining our society.
I have known of people that have been charged for murder and given a life sentence, 7 years later they are out due to "good Behavior", back out with normal folk, ready to offend again.
Im sorry if it is a bit extreme, This is just my feeling.
Something needs to be done.

But it is not a cop out as you put it. When People do get invovled, they are the ones who is arrested and charged, There has been numeous articles, detailing People taking the law into their own hands and getting into trouble for it. But what does one do, the they the police are there to protect them, do nothing at all, but give those invovled a caution, and ASBO, most teenagers nowadays who get an ASBO go around wearing it like a Trophy.
II will say again target the parents, threaten to take away thier children. In ones opinion, the Social Services, Police, Courts, need to come down hard on this.

There seems to be so much hooliganism in the UK. Is there really that many roving gangs of teenagers causing problems or has the media overblown it? The stories make it seem like every street is dangerous to walk down.

In parts of the west mids where i live there are young kids with guns who regulary kill innocent people, gang fighting etc.. The police and justice system are just laughed at.
I would protect my wife and kids and my neighbours if anything happened, using the minimum force necessary.. That is my job as a man, and as a soldier it is what I have had to do my whole adult life...
I think what would help the situation is to bring back community spirit like the old days.. But people do not speak to their neighbours, and old folks or single people can go for days without speaking to anyone. Its like there are lots of lonely people out there all wanting the same thing yet just pass each other by like ships in the night.. Sad.. If we could just get back to the old ways huh?
