IN U.K. YOU ARE PROTECTED BY LAW IF YOU STAB A BUGLER TO DEATH?


LONDON, U.K. - Justice Minister Kenneth Clarke said on Wednesday, a new legislation being prepared by the government would make it "absolutely clear" that individuals were allowed to use "reasonable force to defend ourselves to protect our homes, or both."
It means an individual who stabs a burglar while defending themselves, or their property will not face prosecution, promising any lingering doubts over the controversial issue will be clarified in a new law, said Clarke
  • "If an old lady finds she has got an 18-year-old burglar in her house and she picks up a kitchen knife and sticks it in him, she has not committed a criminal offence," he said in a BBC interview.
  • Clarke was reacting to the high-profile case of a suspected burglar who was stabbed to death during a break-in at a house in Salford last week. The victim was one of a gang of four men, some wearing balaclavas. The householder was arrested on suspicion of murder and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
  • However, cLARKE said the law needed urgent clarification to make sure no one who took those steps will be prosecuted or convicted in future.
