Default 2nd Amendment-less: a disturbing story

I've lifted this remarkable story which happened last night, from a local forum (courtesy of afrattner). I could hardly believe the cops would ever advise someone in such a way. Holy effing hell:


Quote:
Ok where do i start,

I woke to this clinking banging sound at around 6:30 today and i thought it was this bloody possum that lives in my roof. So i haul myself outta bed and i go take a look.

Holy **** !!!

Theres this guy in my backyard with a small jemmy bar, he hasnt seen me and im thinking wtf should i do!

I rang the police and got to wait.

Then i thought should i grab a firearm, nar the last time i did that i nearly got my licence taken away....

So im watching this scumbag dig away at my sliding door for what felt like 30mins and then he stops!

He gives the glass door a good wack and im like oh **** he's gonna break the glass.

Im like ahh **** it, so i run at the door screaming and cursing!

This guy ****s himself and jumps the fence in a crackhead second!


The police arrive 17mins later and in short i should'nt of disturbed the crim and i should'nt of done what i did!


FFS what kinda world do we live in, where i get told off for not letting a crim break into my home!

Obviously according to them, he should have waited until the criminal did break in, and then take his chances on the guy being armed with something and have to defend himself then (naturally being careful to use only the absolutely commensurate force needed - or else)


I mean WTF man

That is seriously messed up. I just can't for the life of me wrap my head around how you folks down under ever got to this stage in the first place.

Stay safe Z

1. Open the door and beat the tar out of him. The use of a blunt object is perfectly acceptable.

2. Toss him in the street.

3. Call the Police and report the Hit & Run accident.

4. Go back to bed.

Something to do with a penal colony which must be controlled, dog



Honestly deep down I think that is really how our "leaders" view the population...can't be trusted you have to let the authorities take care of everything. Yeah, take care of roping off the crime scene and collecting evidence after the fact, IMO.


Here's a good reply from that post. Sums up what most of the aussie shooters there feel:

Poor burgler, he has a problem i can help him with. All he needs is a small lead ball behind the right ear.... From my f*cking rifle.

The message I came away with is "Don't call the cops." Deal with the problem yourself. Seriously, when you try to abide by the law but law enforcement takes 47 minutes to show up when they know time is short, there's your first clue you're wasting your time and theirs. The second clue is putting yourself at risk of legal prosecution for doing what's right: killing or otherwise incapacitating the bad guy.

I love the rule of law, but laws have to serve people. When they don't, and the laws in AU around home invasions sure don't as this case demonstrates, I'm not sure adhering to the law is very smart, cost-effective, or prone to extending your life expectancy.

A senior citizen called in a burglary report. 3 men were breaking into his tool shed. The police told him they more urgent business and would not be able to get there for an hour. He hung up and a few minutes later he called them back and told them to take their time as he shot all 3 of them. The police were there in a few minutes with several cars and caught the burglars red handed. The officer in charge asked the old man why he said he shot them. The old man asked why they said they could not get there for an hour.
Dont know if it is true or not but it sounds good.
I know this is true. The police watched as burglars broke into a house and left with their loot. They did not stop them but followed them trying to get information on a burglary ring. This cost the police big time when the facts came out. The owner had money, a lawyer and a very angry insurance company. The thieves got a million dollar coin collection and the police let them get a way with it. The city had to pay for damages and loss.

I guess the thing to do when you have the cops on the phone is to tell them you shot the guy.

They would be there in a New York minute and probably have to take the guy into custody!!

In Australia you could be charged with murder, manslaughter, or illegal discharge of a weapon with intent to cause grevious bodily harm at the very least, depending on how the district public prosecutor viewed the case. Even having a dog could be no protection - dog rips crim apart it would be euthanased, no doubt resulting in "possession of a dangerous dog" charge.

PLUS using a firearm for an illegal purpose...lose all your guns, your licence forever and get a probable jail term into the bargain. Naturally crims will illegal weapons to start with end up with more lenient treatment

The crim could possibly charge YOU as well, if he lived.


One of the suggestions from the forum:

Quote:
Call an ambulance next time, then call the cops again and tell them the ambulance staff are in danger, bet anything their response time improves. any time Ive seen ambulance staff threatened the police are there quick as a flash.
Hmm never thought of that one.
