Burglary Victim Warned Not to Endanger Thieves

A woman returned to her home in Rugby, England after attending her cancer-stricken brother to find that thieves had smashed through a security gate and broken windows to steal a fortune in antiques and other personal items. But when she brought up the idea of upgrading her security to prevent it from happening again, the police warned against it.

Were any thieves to nick themselves on barbed wire, she would face charges for endangering their well-being.

The woman is keeping her name to herself, probably to avoid attracting more thieves. She gasped:

I was speechless — you couldn't make it up. I think these laws show we have gone soft in the head.

Welcome to England under the regime of moonbattery. It's no fit place for law-abiding citizens.

On a tip from Deano.

This has been so for ages. At a ground floor flat I lived in, our back garden wall was unfortuantely an entry point for burglars from an open area behind- once in our garden they could hop from garden to garden down the terrace looking for someone to burgle. I was told then that I couldn't put up barbed wire in case a burglar hurt himself.

I put it up anyway, and hoped that if one of the bastards bled to death on it, I'd end up facing a jury of my peers with some sympathy for my predicament.

Anyway, none of the neighbours spotted any opportunist burglars in their gardens again. One of my neighbours had previously actually confronted someone in our garden while me and the girlfriend were out at work, to which he explained he was "lost". Really.

I prefer a "virtual wall" at my place. No electronics, just Mossberg, Ruger, Norinco, Charter, etc.

I'm glad you decided to protect yourself despite the law, Ian.

The people really need to demand better.
