But this one cries out for a biblical quote... you know... something about "reaping what you sow..."
A shopkeeper from Lancashire has been told he will not face a murder charge after a man who tried to rob him was stabbed to death with his own knife.Yup... it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy...
Liam Kilroe, 25, from Billinge, near St Helens, Merseyside, was wanted by police when he was killed in Skelmersdale on 17 February.
Kilroe, who had previous convictions for assault and robbery, died from a single stab wound to the chest after smashing the window of the car Mr Singh was sitting in and trying to mug him.So it looks like there's hope for the British judicial system after all.
"While this case does not concern a householder defending themselves against an intruder, it has very similar considerations.Only it doesn't go far enough.
"The CPS understands that anxiety may sometimes be felt by innocent members of the public if they are obliged to defend themselves from attack.
"The Director of Public Prosecutions is determined to ensure that those who use reasonable force in defending themselves will enjoy the full protection of the law - they will not be prosecuted."
Tony Singh deserves a medal.
