A Case for rights against burglars

Post by Guest on 09.10.12 10:24

Homeowners Get New Rights To Attack Burglars

Frightened householders who over-react when confronted by burglars will get more protection under Government plans, the new Justice Secretary will say today.

Chris Grayling plans to change the law to ensure even householders who use force in a way that may seem disproportionate in the cold light of day will be protected from prosecution.

It comes after Britain's most senior judge reinforced the notion that a person's home is their castle, saying furious householders have the right to get rid of burglars in their homes and are not expected to remain calm when confronted by intruders.

Case For Rights Against Burglars

Updated: 10:00am UK, Tuesday 09 October 2012

Victims rights campaigners have over the past decade called for householders to be given more protection against burglars.

A change in the Criminal Justice Act in 2008 stated that homeowners who used "reasonable force" to protect themselves against intruders should not be prosecuted, as long as they use no more force than is absolutely necessary.

The move by the Justice Secretary Chris Grayling to set the bar higher for householders who confront burglars comes amid high-profile cases of people taking the law into their own hands to protect their property.

In 1999, the Norfolk farmer Tony Martin shot dead 16-year-old burglar Fred Barras after he broke into Martin's home. Martin had used an illegal weapon. He was released on appeal in 2003 after being found guilty of manslaughter.

In 2008, businessman and community leader Munir Hussain attacked a burglar with a cricket bat at his Buckinghamshire

home. He was given 30 months in jail, while his brother Tokeer Hussain was given 39 months for also taking part in the attack. Munir successfully appealed and was released after a year behind bars.

In 2010, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dropped the charges against an apprentice builder from Nottingham for the alleged murder of a teenager. Omari Roberts caught a 17-year-old ransacking his mother's home along with a 14-year-old.

In the same year, celebrity Myleene Klaas was warned by Hertfordshire Police after she waved a knife from her kitchen at teenagers who had entered her garden and were peering through her window. She was told she should not have used the knife to warn them off - even in her own home.

In September 2012, Andy and Tracey Ferrie were arrested for causing grievous bodily harm when they shot two intruders at their house in Leicestershire with a legally-held weapon. The couple were released without charge, the CPS saying it would take no action.

During the height of the riots in England in August 2011, traders and residents came together to protect their property. In Southall, west London, hundreds of Sikh men stood guard outside their place of worship and patrolled the streets.

In Birmingham, Haroon Jahan and brothers Shazad Ali and Abdul Musavir died after being hit by a car while trying to protect shops and homes from looters.

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
