The Brits Are Going Daft

From “Shooting The Messenger” blog:
Rules say homes must be safe for robbers

“A woman who suffered a break-in robbery in which she lost some valuable antiques worth “thousands” has been told she could face a significant liability if she beefs up her home’s security, and a returning robber would be injured.
The woman had antiques and personal items worth “thousands” stolen from her home during her absence to attend to the needs of her brother, suffering with cancer.

The invaders smashed through a security gate and broke windows in order to get inside, police reports said.

During their investigation, Rugby police provided her with a crime-fighting booklet that discusses home security.

But she told the Advertiser when she asked about putting in a new security fence and upgrading its capabilities, she was told the laws on liability meant she risked a police investigation herself if any trespassers hurt themselves climbing it.

She had wanted to add barbed wire to the fence in order to reduce the ease with which the robbers apparently gained access to her home.

But the Warwickshire Police “Operation Impact” booklet, which gives victims information on crime-fighting, suggested she could risk a prosecution herself if someone would be hurt.”

This is absolutely TOO funny. Even if its true. The Brits have allowed things to go this far south; harm a burglar, and go to jail.

(When are these people going to get a bit of good common sense? – JL)

    This I’m afraid is only the tip of the iceberg…the growing sense of helplessness here is driving many to leave the country they love whilst the socialist govt imports millions more to vote for them. Nulabour have an inbuilt voting majority as so many state workers and newcomers have a vested interest in their remaining in power..so its stay and suffer..or leave.
