I'm not much on religion...

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.

Liam Kilroe, 25, from Billinge, near St Helens, Merseyside, was wanted by police when he was killed in Skelmersdale on 17 February.
Yup... it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy...
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.

"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."
Only it doesn't go far enough.

Tony Singh deserves a medal.

who the hell are you to say such vulgar things about someone and something you know absolutely nothing about. i am the mother to liams son and let me tell you liam is not the person the press have portrayed him to be. liam made a stupid mistake as a teenager and he is still getting judged for it he has not comitted a crime or been convicted sice 2002. liam was not short of money so we as a family know he was not comitting a robery. people like you make me sick have you no respect for the dead or liams family let us morn in peace.

"sarah jones says... liam was not short of money so we as a family know he was not comitting(sic) a robery(sic)."

so, just to clear things up, which part of the allegation are you saying isn't factual?

"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."

are you saying he was framed? or simply that he was murdered by this shopkeeper for no reason?
