  1. Muggers picks on karate champ

    A mugger in Italy got more than he bargained for when he tried to rob a national karate champion.

    That's a bit more like it - seems the police have actually managed to arrest the assaulter rather than the assaultee.
     
  2. Wonder what would have happened over here
     
  3. Replace the "he" with "she" and that's exactly what would have happened over here.
     
  4. Yes I see your thoughts on the matter
     
  5. About 10 years ago, the former landlord of 5's in Aldershot was mugged by a couple of scrotes whilst withdrawing money from a cashpoint. End result was he battered them both senseless, was hailed a hero by all paratroopers in Aldershot and had no charges brought against him. He even had his 6 inches of glory in the local rag.
     
  6. Aye but thats 10 years ago mate, before 'uman(criminals, chavs, dole dossers) rights innit?
     
  7. True, but I can't recall any recent 'vigilante' style forms of Judge Dredd justice.
     
  8. 10 years ago - pre New Labour government
     
  9. What about that bloke who was arrested after the chavs vandalising his home phoned the police because he was filming them trespassing on his property?

    Will try to find a link, it was on BBC News a while back?
     
  10. Was he lauded by the public and let off? If not then it's not really a cpmparison.

    Not so much.. They came to power in '97..

    Good on the Italians for doing the right thing.

    And its a pity that common sense can't be used in judicial rulings in the UK.
     
  13. :wink:
     
  14. I know it was 34 years ago, but anyone on here remember the New York muggers - plural- who picked on a 'Brit' wandering back to HMS HERMES berthed in NY?

    One 'runner' - very fast; and one 'broken arm' -broken accidentally of course. The 'filth' had picked on the Commando PTI ! (41 Cdo Gp RM)

    He was a nice guy, softly spoken and always polite. Seriously f'ing dangerous in certain circumstances though !!!
