Would you fight back if someone broke into your home?I'm afraid I would. My husband says let them have whatever they want,they are only things,but I know I would be so incensed I would have a go regardless of the cost.
You know I don't blame this bloke for protecting his property, but maybe with a cricket bat or something similar. But to use a knife with the intent of murder is exactly that.. murder. If it had been me, I certainly would pick up something to bash the burglar with, but no way would I grab a knife intending to cause serious harm. This to me sets a precedent and I can see this case being used in future events.
But, but, but he didn't pick up a knife. The burglar was carrying the screwdriver, in the scuffle the screwdriver was used against him. If I have got this wrong then I apologise but it is how I understand things.
Maybe a knife was all he had to hand at the time.I can't blame him for having a go. As I said in my previous post,I know I would. It's in my nature,even though I hate violence and even strong words- I would not be able to resist.
