I believe it is part of my human rights to be able to protect myself and my own family. This is not anything new. It is absurd that one cannot feel safe in their own private home.
I think its outrageous that we cant even feel safe in our own home. A good number of instances have confirmed that this law is giving as much right to the burglars/murderers when they are in someone's property unwelcomed. It is unacceptable that burglars can even file lawsuits against their victims if they have been scratched! The country is different from what it was 20 years ago and this law needs to be amended. The streets arent as safe as they were. Families who have children especially, will need to be able to defend themselves and not worry about going to jail by just merely acting on self defense. Hopefully Mr Clegg and Mr Cameron listens to this as it will make a difference to hundreds of lives.
