Defending Your Home & Your Family’s Lives Can Be A Criminal Offense In Britain
Know what happens when you fight off a metal bar wielding burglar who knocks your 14 month baby in the floor and then starts stroking your wife’s leg? In Britain, they consider charging YOU with a crime…..
“A man who admitted stabbing a suspected burglar with a bread knife to protect his wife and child is being investigated for assault.
…Mr Caeiro claimed he was woken by his 28-year-old wife’s screams at 2am on Saturday when the burglar came into their bedroom.
He said the 6ft tall intruder had pulled away their 14-month-old daughter’s cot from the side of their bed causing the child to fall on the floor and cry.
Mr Caeiro said: “This man was kneeling at the side of my bed and started touching the legs of my wife.
“My wife woke up screaming and then I woke up. The man then ran downstairs and went out through the kitchen door.”
Mr Caeiro, who is 5ft 6ins, rang 999 to report the break-in and was told by police that because the intruder was no-longer believed to be in the house they would be there in 15 to 30 minutes.
He said: “I looked out into my yard and saw a shadow. I was frightened and I grabbed the bread knife from a rack because my first thought was that I had to stop my family being harmed. I opened the back door … then this man attacked me with a metal bar.
“He hit me on the shoulder and I was knocked back into the kitchen. The door opened and the man tried to come inside.
“I stabbed him in the leg and then we ended up fighting and I stabbed him in the chest.
“We fought for about a minute outside … then he managed to break away and run down the alley at the back of my house.”
Mr Caeiro said he tried to call the police again, but got no reply. He then called a friend who alerted police officers who arrived three minutes later.
The intruder was arrested near by on suspicion of burglary. Police also arrested Mr Caeiro on suspicion of assault, and later released him on bail pending further inquiries.
The police will investigate the case and can decide not to charge Mr Caeiro. Alternatively they can send a file of the evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service which will decide whether there is a case to answer and whether it would be in the public interest to prosecute.
Mr Caeiro said he was making arrangements to move to a new home in Great Yarmouth because he fears reprisal attacks.”
I guess this guy is lucky that he didn’t put the bread knife in the burglar’s throat or he might have ended up getting charged with murder. This is really impressive too…
“Mr Caeiro said he tried to call the police again, but got no reply.”
See, this is what happens when European liberals get complete control of the criminal justice system . You’re not allowed to own a gun to protect your family. You call the police, they may answer, they may not. If you fight the burglar who’s in your home, they consider throwing you in jail.
Personally, I like how we in America handle this sort of situation better. The burglar breaks in, you shoot him dead, call the cops, then they show up and tell you that you did the right thing. You’re better off because the cops aren’t looking to throw you in the pokie, society’s better off because the burglar’s dead — it’s just a win/win situation.
