Great Britain has enjoyed high rates of burglary and other crime in the past few decades thanks to their government’s criminal-coddling attitudes and the lack of any modern-day right to self-defense from criminal attack in the nation that pioneered the Common Law right to self-defense.
With decisions come consequences, and the British people electing politicians who are soft on crime and criminals and tough on the law-abidiing are directly responsible for the vicious crime rates that make even Chicago’s look tame (sans the murders, of course).
So, yesterday, when a quartet of thugs broke into a rural home in the middle of the night intent on robbing the place while knowing it was occupied, the homeowner grabbed his legally owned shotgun, loaded it up and defended his “castle”.
At least two of the thugs were shot, and guess who the police arrest?
Not only the four thugs, but the two homeowners as well.
For using deadly force in the face of four home invaders.
Nice job, Bobbies.
You silly twits.
The man is believed to have grabbed a legally owned gun after they were disturbed by the break-in early yesterday.
He is understood to have fired at the intruders who then fled the isolated house at Melton Mowbray, Leics, before calling the police.
Minutes later, an ambulance was called to treat a man with gunshot injuries nearby. It is understood that call was made by one of the suspected burglars.
The arrested man’s mother said: “This is not the first time they have been broken into.
“They have been robbed three or four times. One of them was quite nasty.
…A second man was later treated for gunshot injuries after arriving at Leicester Royal Infirmary, 10 miles from the scene of the shooting. Neither of the men is said to be seriously injured.
Yesterday the businessman and his wife were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. Four men, understood to be the suspected burglars, were also arrested.
…A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: “A 35-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman were arrested in Melton on suspicion of GBH and four men, aged 27, 23, 31 and 33, were arrested at Leicester Royal Infirmary on suspicion of aggravated burglary.” All remain in custody.
