It looks like the people in (Formerly Great) Britain have finally made it clear to their overlords that killing in self defense is not a crime.
A third man has now admitted his part in the armed robbery of a florist who stabbed to death one of the intruders in self-defence.
Their accomplice, Gary Mullings, 30, from New Moston, suffered fatal stab wounds in a violent struggle with Mr Coley at the Shrewsbury Street shop he had run for 40 years.
The 72 year old man was originally arrested on suspicion of murder, but later released when the Crown made the determination that he used “reasonable force.” What made stabbing them “reasonable?”
“Armed with a gun and an imitation firearm they, and Gary Mullings, forced their way into the shop. They threatened and attacked Mr Coley and a friend who was in the shop with him, injuring both of them and robbing them of cash and valuables. Both men were so scared that they feared for their lives.
So how is it that in gun free (Formerly Great) Britain, every stupid criminal seems to have a gun? Why is a 72 year old man forced to grapple with four thugs, using only a knife? After he killed one he was still faced with three, whose combined total age was still less than his.
They say that old age and treachery beats youth and skill. I say, give that old man a gun. We need our old men to be dangerous.
