UK: once more, once more into the morass, my friends...
From the UK: a mob tries to rob some golfers of their equipment, menacing them with wood planks. When they attack the golfers, the golfers fight back and they lay out some of the robbers.
Police arrest the golfers on charges of causing gross bodily injury. Apparently even nonlethal self defense is now seen as criminal activity.
On the side, a father of four is beaten to death after asking drunken teens to be quiet and another fellow is killed for refusing a give a cigarrette, and a 10 and 11 yr old are arrested for robbery and assault.
Hat tip to Joe Olson....
The UK is at, or even past the tipping point of anarchy. To criminalize a Natural Right of self-defense of one's life is insanity and criminal unto itself.

I didn't know that Clockwork Orange was a documentary.

NuLabor has foisted a perpetual crime crisis on Britain in order to have an excuse for almost anything they want to do to abrogate civil liberties. This is what happens when you basically outlaw (as postulated by the seventh circuit count) self-defense.
