Just when you think Britain couldn't get more crazy...
A 64 year old, 5'1" grandmother is confronted by a gang of teenage thugs, blocking her way and shouting abuse and taunts. One dares her to hit him, and she gives him some light prods in the belly. He knocks her down and breaks her arm.
The thug's mother calls the police on her, and she is arrested for assault.
Tom Holzel comments (which for some reason my spam filter stopped):
The situation in the UK is now completely out of control. Tony Martin, a farmer, had been repeatedly robbed, with the local constabulary at least 30 minutes away--when they chose to come at all. The third time he was robbed, he shot and killed one perp and wounded another after they had broken into his home. Both had long rap sheets. Of course Martin was tried and convicted of using excessive force. The wounded burglar was consulted by the judge to determine the length of the sentence (!!) The trial cost for the wounded burglar were paid for by the state. Tony Martin's were not.
Recently a man in London called the police on his cell phone to say he was witnessing the theft of his car, and if the police hurried, they could catch the miscreants. They replied that they had better things to do, and he could come down to the station and report the theft for insurance purposes.>>
I left a comment at the British paper about this. Since they banned guns and knives the gangs have all the advantages. Several thugs can overcome one older person with ease (or even one strong one.)
Here in Texas such would not happen. Way to many people pack heat for a bunch of two-bit thugs to try this.

Considering the lady is white, the punky little boys were probably black or arab. Consider that no names, pictures or description of the little darlings appear in the article. Further consider the liberals have been fighting for years to implement policies that have this outcome.
If they hate us so much, why don't they leave?
