What Liberal-ass State Was This In???

Oh, England.

The news site I go to links to all over the world but mainly the states. I started reading the article and the city names all sound common enough in the US.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...break-ins.html

Farm tenant arrested after burglars shot was 'plagued by break-ins'

A farm tenant and his wife who were arrested after two suspected burglars were shot at their isolated home had been the victims of a number of robberies.

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.

"They have not been injured but property has been stolen."

Local farmers said the area has been increasingly targeted by car thieves.

One said: "We had three Land Rovers stolen. We had fitted one with a tracker and it was recovered in Birmingham."

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.

The case will reignite the debate over a householder’s right to defend his property, which began in the late 1990s after the farmer Tony Martin shot two burglars at his remote Norfolk home. In 1999, Martin fired at Brendan Fearon, 29, and Fred Barras, 16, after they broke into the house in Emneth Hungate.

Three shots were fired, Barras was hit in the back and despite escaping through a window died moments later. Martin was convicted of murder and jailed for life, which was reduced on appeal to manslaughter and five years’ jail.

In 2009, the millionaire businessman Munir Hussain fought back with a metal pole and a cricket bat against a knife-wielding burglar who tied up his family at their home in Buckinghamshire. Hussain was jailed for two and a half years, despite his attacker being spared prison.

Appeal judges reduced the sentence to a year’s jail, suspended.

The case prompted David Cameron to announce that home owners and shopkeepers would have the right to protect themselves against burglars and robbers.

Last year, Peter Flanagan, 59, who fatally stabbed a burglar armed with a machete at his home in Salford, Great Manchester, escaped prosecution after the Crown Prosecution Service ruled that he was acting in self defence.

Yesterday the Melton Mowbray cottage was sealed off by police. Welby Grange Farm is owned by John Hobill, 84, and his wife Evelyn, 76, and is the registered address for JT and RT Hobill, which lists itself as a farming business.

A woman who answered the phone said they were “not allowed” to talk about the incident. She said the cottage was privately rented and the incident was nothing to do with the family that owned the farm. She said the person living there was not a farmer.

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.

Re: What Liberal-ass State Was This In???

I don't understand why people think it's wrong when a person shoots someone trying to enter their house to commit a crime. Just like how thieves will break into someone's house and get hurt then sue the person. Justice

My sister used to think guns were bad until a couple of months ago when their neighbor's house was broken into by two guys. The lady had a gun and stopped them. The cops came and said they've been looking for them for burglary, robbery and rape. Only thing that saved her was the gun she had..

If the farmer owned a crematory, then none of this would have came out

Re: What Liberal-ass State Was This In???

It really depends on where they shoot them, i mean i think they shouldnt be locked up for it. But it was about a case where a farmer chased a fleeing 16 year old and shot him in the back.

I think by 16 you should know right from wrong. If the guy was more than 5 feet from the house when he was shot then I think there's a problem..as long as the guy didn't hurt anyone or steal anything really valuable.
Call me heartless but I think there's too many dumb ass people on our over populated planet and the less scum we have, the better. If punishment for crimes was more severe maybe less would happen. If would-be criminals knew that most people had guns and would react the same way as this farmer, think there would be more or less break ins?

Apparently the police let them go without charge.

I bet the scum will bring a civil suit on them though.
