Shopkeeper arrested for Murder

#2
I am sure the laws states you can use a reasonable amount of force to defend yourself.

"I would like to reassure residents that we do not believe there is any danger to the community. We have duly arrested the shopkeeper to put the frighteners on anyone else thinking of defending their property, and would urge anyone who may have seen something to contact us. In due course, we will quietly release the shopkeeper without charge as we usually do."

Arrested, not charged. There is a difference. If all is as it seems from the scant information in the paper, he'll be released same as the fella from Salford who topped a robber the other week.

Did he stab him once, or twenty times? If it was just the once then he needs to practice more.
I beg to differ, if he slotted the perp with one stab - bloody good drills.

One for the Plods to confirm, but in these kind of situations it's probably SOP to arrest everyone who might have committed a crime and then investigate. Does'nt mean the shopkeeper will ever see the inside of a courtroom, never mind a jail cell.

And bloody right too!

Next time he'll know to follow the correct approved procedure when burgled… roll into a foetal position and scream 'Please don't beat me! Please don't beat me!'

Bloody public upstaging Plod! What is the world coming too!

The fella would need to be taken into custody for numerous reasons. If he is innocent, many of these reasons will be for his own good and assist him in proving his argument of reasonable force. In short, if I was in his shoes, I would want to be arrested right now.

And you can **** right off as well, you ******* police apologist. Coming round here wrecking the potential for the foamy mouths to have have a good old rant about 'uman rights, etc, etc, etc, with your technical explanations. Who the **** do you think you are, eh?

I think knowing you've just killed someone is probably slightly more traumatic
even if they deserved it.
Its sop I don't think the first plod on the scence wants to make the decision even clear cut cases need to be seen to be dealt with.
Plus fighting for your life one thing.
Killing scroates ala that advert not to be encouraged pity really.

Its only right that the person doing the stabbing is properly investigated. If it proves to be self defence then no charges, job jobbed.
If they aren't investigated then it becomes any easy way to get away with murder.....

Why on earth do people think we live in the world of Judge Dread?

As the previous one was GMP it strikes me this chap only has to worry if he committed a crime.

That's right. All you would have to do is sit on your arse in your shop or house, and wait for your chosen victim to pop by brandishing a pistol or machete, and then murder them. Criminal genius.

I bet Peter Sutcliffe is kicking himself that he didn't think of it first.

I know. The Judge System of Instant Justice won't come into being until after the Knights Templar(UK) detonate the Suitcase Nuke in London during the 2012 Olympics...

...Oh. Bugger. I've said too much...8-O
