    The government countered that the public should be discouraged "from going about with offensive weapons in their pockets; it is the duty of society to protect them."

    The trouble is that society cannot and does not protect them....
    For America and 2A and SCOTUS remedy for places like Kali: no place like it; and when its gone it's gone. [please see sig - Brits should read their own Blackstone].

    Because prisons are expensive and don't reform their residents, fewer offenders are
    incarcerated. Those who are get sharply reduced sentences, and serve just half of these.

    Still, with crime rates rising, prisons are overcrowded and additional jail space will not be available anytime soon.
    The early release part of the article struck close to home for many states, particularly California.
    Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
    when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.

    Police have been instructed to let off with a caution, burglars and those who admit responsibility for some 60 other crimes ranging from assault and arson, to sex with an underage girl.
    Ahh, the old Neville Chamberlain approach.

    And it worked out so well for them before.

    They made their bed, now they must lie in it (or burn it down, either way).

    Where is this info from, that GB is the most violent developed country? "Violence" based on what? "Developed" based on what?

    Sort of pre-supposes a lot.

    Ergh, Zombie Thread. Perhaps we should start a new one with some more up to date info, or maybe a mod with a good headshot is needed.....
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Still, a war from within is a war is a war to fear. Fortunately we have good King Barack to watch over us.

    Exactly.
    More press 'BS' indeed.

    Sure, things there are worse than they have been for a long time, but then again so are many other places.
    Stay out of certain places in the UK (inner city areas,) and one really won't have a problem.

    But for sure, politicians have screwed it up big time since WWII with socialist politics. - It tends to be a trend though, throughout the world unfortunately, and with Obama and his government, the USA is heading in the same direction.

    I believe that the "violence" mentioned in the UK, will included everything, from somebody being punched in a bar (drink & stupidity) then reporting it, purse snatching (with or without a physical assault,) etc?
    The overall murder rate is low compared to many other so called "developed" countries. Brits tend to beat the snot out of each other at times, but generally stop short of killing! :)
