I just found out the final disposition of the case in Norfolk, Great Britain where a farmer(read rural dweller miles from LEO's) had his home broken into late at night while he was home. He accosted the burglar and ended up shooting the miscreant to death. In April, 2000 he was sentenced to life in prison for defending himself. The burglar, it turned out, was a career criminal. The man ended the thief's "career", but now will spend his life in prison for defending himself. God save the Brit's--from themselves. Peasant idiots. Call 9-1-1, they'll take a report after the criminals do any damn thing they please with you.
