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.
