Ice Bear

News, or a bad sense of humour?

I just saw this on the frontpage of The Independent:

Government lawyers will tell a High Court judge tomorrow that burglars are members of the public who must be protected from violent householders

Full article here.

Maybe this is just my opinion, but if someone breaks into someones house, surely they have forfeited any rights and should be treated like the vermin they are. Shoot them, kick them, do whatever pleases you. Yes, I might be a little to the right there, but isn't it householders who should be protected from burglars?
