    I'm surprised that they didn't charge the grandfather for damaging the poor robber's self-esteem.

    Here in Texas the kid probably would have been shot dead for pointing a gun at the clerk.
    No need for a trial!

    One crying six carrying! As the song goes.

    That suspended sentence is sad.
    Sure we have our crime, but at least the BG's think long and hard about who they pick on.

    How can you feel safe in a Country where you can't even defend yourself?

    Why do the British put up with this kind of abuse...one would think that there would be riots in the streets over not being able to defend one's self.
    The lunacy with which they punish (if you want to call it that) criminals is what we are headed for in our 'possible' Marxist State...coming soon to a neighborhood near your USA address...except, perhaps, in Texas. If I could talk my wife into it (I can't), I'd move to TX.

    Stay armed...wake up America...stay safe!

    Well, after all, it was just a pellet gun and a bloke out having a bit 'o fun. No harm in that, eh?

    Seriously, if that happend in the United States (well for now anyway) a couple of scenarios.

    A: Bad guy gets shot and killed, end of story.
    B: Bad guy gets shot, wounded, picked up at the hospital and charged with armed robbery and put in prison after a short trial.

    Apparently, the UK is governed by Thugs, Armed Robbers and other Criminal types.
