Yeah, Farkers just love us old folks - when we cut, shoot, or beat somebody.
The rest of the time they want to cut Social Security off and stick us on an ice flow.

As my old karate instructor used to say "If you kill them, there's only one police report."

"Our advice is that people should avoid confronting anybody it's not my advice that people should arm themselves and confront anyone in a house," Detective Inspector for Brisbane West Robert Hitch said.
"People have a right to take action to defend their own person, to defend their dwelling and to defend other people. The force that they use must be reasonable and must fit the circumstances, it must be considered in relation to the threat that they're facing," Det Insp Hitch said.


So basically, 80+ year old seniors with a little bit of skill and enough sense to defense themselves are being 2nd guessed about the amount of force they used by their a well armed force of men who couldn't even stop/prevent such an event from continuing on to begin with.

Fark Me To Tears: FTFA: "People have a right to take action to defend their own person, to defend their dwelling and to defend other people. The force that they use must be reasonable and must fit the circumstances, it must be considered in relation to the threat that they're facing," Det Insp Hitch said.

With all due respect, this is bullsh*t. The homeowners were 83 and 76. If you invade the home of an old couple like that, you deserve anything they can do to you. In this case, it was a knife wound. Too bad it wasn't a shotgun blast to the face.

I don't like it when law enforcement takes it upon themselves to publicly second-guess the actions of the victims of home invasions. When someone breaks into your house, they get what they get. All bets are off at that point. It's hypocritical for police to say anything considering the way they handle even the slightest hint of a threat to themselves.


Any state that asserts that deadly force is not "reasonable" force to use against a demonstrably criminal home invader is corrupt and should be overthrown.
