Man held in cells and fined for hitting vandal with bread tray. click here
One time I caught a burglar in my property who promptly whipped out a nice, I politely asked him to put it down,(as polite as the circumstances merited anyway),when he refused I broke his hand with a cricket bat.Whilst the police quietly said well done, the social workers and other do gooders want me to be charged with using excessive force. I pointed out I had been remarkedly restrained as he was still able to walk.
Eventually the matter was dropped but was warned that I might think about getting rid of the bat.
The burglar was deemed to have suffered enough and was admonished.
The cricket bat is still to hand beside my bed and I would not hesitate to use it again if I found an uninvited person inside my property.
