..retired guy kills intruder - held for "murder"..
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:50:36 AM »
.
a retired fellow (London ?) was arrested for murder after he fought off 1 of 2 intruders that broke into his home - the resident evidently stabbed one of the evil-doers with a knife during a struggle - both bad guys took off, the stabbed one later died from his stab wounds - police are wanting the other intruder to come forward for an interview ( :th_thicon_lol:)

the resident was arrested but has met bail

.....(he should have been labeled "a Hero" vs being arrested).....as the world changes

Sounds like same results if he had been in Austin.

yes, this sort of mentality is creeping in on us, from every direction (and.....it's gonna get here, yep, even "here")

Hopefully, between Texas’ Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground laws, we can be spared this kind of imbecilic law enforcement.  (Might still get referred to a Grand Jury but as long as they “no bill” it, that kind of ridiculousness won’t take hold here).

Be sure the bodies remain inside.

Had he been ALLOWED to own a firearm the result likely would have been 2 dead perps.

UK should ban knoves soon as a result of all the recent stabbings.

You know if just one life can be saved.....

Shield45,

Had he had a SHOTGUN (scatterguns are legal in the UK.) he might have been able to stop both thugs.
(Even though I carry a 9mm S&W Shield every day, I prefer a 12 gauge pump loaded with #1 or #4 buckshot for home defense out to 50M.)

yours, satx

True that.
Scatter guns are great for HD.

They are sooooo messed up in London
From an article about the 50th murder in London since Xmas.

The muslim mayor said:
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement Thursday he is "angered and heartbroken by the recent violent deaths on our streets."

"Let me be clear -- there is no reason to carry a knife. To anyone who does, they will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law," Khan said.

I'm honestly not surprised.

This behavior comes from the government of a country that arrested, tried, convicted, and is about to sentence a comedian for making a joke about Nazis, and arrested (possibly tried, convicted, etc.) upon his return a guy who left the country to fight ISIS terrorists for crying out loud.

I was told some really ridiculous crap from an X London Leo 20 years ago.
Hard to imagine how bad it is now.
But they did it to themselves. So,,,,,,,,

And this future was/is the same plan obummer & hiLIARy had for us.
obummer invited in almost a MILLION african muslims in 8 years.

The big lie was they were "refugee's" from "other" countries.

And there will be a severe price paid for that.
They dont get along with anyone, destroy every area they infest, and WILL be a problem 100% guaranteed. And its already started.

Our news has just been covering it up. Just like the you tube attack. 

And whatever you do,, DONT do extreme vetting. OMG,, thats racist. :facepalm:
The liberals are flat out insane brain dead morons.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".
