Re: Tony Martin - murderer.
I don't see how anybody can feel sorry for the boy who was killed.... if he hadn't been breaking the law he would still be alive!
If Mr Martin had a heart attack, as a result of being scared when he heard them in his house, would these thieving criminals have been charged with manslaughter?
Surely it is time that people who break the law realize that and injuries they sustain, whilst breaking the law, should just be accepted as the down side to the job they do.
If they broke a shop window & bled to death because the window cut an essential artery, would the expect compensation?
If somebody broke into my home and scared me, I would have no problem in using whatever form of protection I could lay my hands on! It is ludicrous that people are not allowed to protect themselves when somebody breaks into their home!
Perhaps firing a gun was designed to stop them coming back, and if this lad was in the dark on somebody else's property, he had nobody to blame but himself!
