Default Samurai-sword wielder gets off charge

And in the UK, no less Woohoo!



Excalib-ear



Mr Fullard said he had acted to protect his wife and children


Michael Severs' ear was re-attached by surgeons


By ROBIN PERRIE

A DAD who cut a thug's ear off with a Samurai sword has been cleared by a jury.

Builder David Fullard, 46, leapt into action as the brute and a pal forced their way into his home and threatened to rape his girlfriend and kill his sons.

He grabbed the antique sword and sliced off the left lug of the yob - named Michael SEVERS.


Prosecutors said Mr Fullard went too far for self-defence and charged him with unlawful wounding. He faced up to EIGHT YEARS in jail.

A jury took less than 50 minutes to acquit him at Hull Crown Court.


Afterwards he said: "I would do it again under the same circumstances.

"You cannot stand around and do nothing when someone comes to your house and threatens your family."

Their ordeal came last March when Severs and pal Michael Smith - both high on vodka and cannabis - stormed into the Fullards' home in Brough, East Yorks, demanding money.

They were armed with a spade and knuckle-duster. Smith picked up the sword as they threatened to rape Mr Fullard's partner Sue, 53.

They also said they would kill his sons Tom, 17, and Danny, 14, and torch the house.



Mr Fullard grabbed the sword and lunged once at Severs.

He told the jury: "I wanted the flat of the sword to hit him. I didn't want it to lead to injury.

"As soon as I hit him I went to ring the police. I was just panicking." Surgeons reattached the ear.

Neighbours described Mr Fullard as "an honest, caring, family man at the heart of the community".

He was cleared in November but it can only be reported now that cases against Severs, 22, and Smith, 19, have finished.

Yesterday the two jobless thugs got six-month suspended sentences and 100 hours of community service after admitting affray.


Last night Mr Fullard said: "It's a bad result. They got a slap on the wrists.

"Sue is still quite worried about answering the door. We have had a lot of sleepless nights."



The case mirrors that of businessman Munir Hussain, 53, who was jailed for attacking an armed burglar in High Wycombe, Bucks.

He was freed on appeal after an outcry.'

Result! As far as the innocent homeowner's freedom was concerned. Those would-be-rapist bastards should have got jail time; but ahh well, at least Mr Fullard is free & unconvicted. Pity they couldn't have left that f*cker to bleed to death, but still...a result

(Rather appropriate name for that crim too, SEVERS lol)


I'd like to think the same thing might happen here but I'm so not sure...

In both our countries, quite easily

We have this "commensurate force" thing. ie If someone breaks into your house, you can't use a weapon to disable them if the bad guy is unarmed...or if he has a stick, you can't use a knife etc etc etc. Insane, I know

Overzelous prosecutors frequently bring charges against "vitims". They are ideologues who want to discourage self responisbility. "Only the Police should have guns because they are properly trained." "Only the Police can use force against a suspect, because they are neutral".

When someone forces his way into my house and threatens to kill my family members, there is no neutrality needed. There is no level of force that is unnecessary. He will die, period.

It is refreshing to see our British brothers and sisters are starting to come around and tell the government "NO"!

I can't even begin to understand that kind of thinking.

Even here in California we have better laws then that.


And from the looks of that reattached ear we have better surgeons also.

He is lucky it was not someone from this board. because I hate to say it but he might not been alive to file charges because it is very hard to reattach a severed head.

I feel for the people the UK and Aussi. It is nuts that you are not allowed to defend your family or self.

Then again I might just have to go to prison for going all bear jew on some thugs that break into my house.
