    So what do you do when your home is burgled?

    For those of you who don't know what the snivel is, here are the instructions: The SNiVeL

    Better Idea.

    Sneak up behind the vermin, tell them you called 1911, turn a light on, When the vermin turns around say "Say Hello to my Little Friend" & aim directly at them, tell them not to even think about moving, & call the cops on your cell's handsfree. :D

    if they move, aim anywhere that will stop them & squeze the trigger.

    Can also be done with any other pistol or a AR or .12 gage...

    Be sure to say that in several different languages, so you demonstrate that you are respectful of his cultural diversity. :p

    bad article, largely because of the media's inability to admit fault over the Martin case:

    This kills me:
    When somebody breaks into another's home, they have also broken the coven under which civilized people live together. Their lives are forfit.
    Over-retaliation would be what???

    I love how they portray rolling over and playing dead as taking charge of the situation. People should be advised though that they can take further control of the situation by bundling up their money and valuables and dropping them off at the nice burglars doorstep.

    So I'm supposed to feel sorry for a person who breaks into my home, armed, with intent to rob me or worse, because he's scared? News flash, you'd have no cause to be scared if you weren't in my house.

    Huh? Does anyone know what that means?

    So the perp comes into my home, takes what he wants, and leaves unmolested, but I've "taken charge of the situation"? How is that?

    I've got a better idea, point home-defense weapon at perp and tell him that if he refrains from moving a muscle he's got a good chance of surviving until the police arrive.

    And this is the same country that gave the world Winston Churchill, that fought the Battle of Britain, that endured the Blitz. The older I get the more convinced I am that the world has gone mad.

    I'm suprised the article didn't instruct women to voluntarily disrobe so not to risk damage to their clothing if the perpetrator was also a rapist.

    I wonder if you should say "Thank you" as the choad-monkey that just robbed you exits unmolested from your house.

    And this from a group of people that'll start a riot over a soccer match.

    Should have read a little closer, the author is not a Journalist, rather he is a Phd Holding Criminal Psychologist.

    ...so the most important thing is to make sure that their first criminal enterprise is as stress-free and successful as possible. This will encourage them to further their criminal careers and move on to more violent and destructive behavior.

    Best advice I've heard is: "Shoot till he's down for good, watch the last part of "Old Yeller" to get up a good cry - then call for ambulance FIRST and request the police as an afterthought". The point is to seem genuinely concerned about the scumbag (hence the ambulance first) and that you are truly upset about harming the poor indivudual. Of course, thinking about cleaning the carpet may be used in place of the movie...

    Post-traumatic stress can be effectively managed by.......

    ...the hours of labor and hard work scrubbing the miscreant's blood out of your carpet and off the walls. Remember to wear the proper protective equipment to prevent picking up the various diseases that may be present.

    What a crock of bovine excrement, typical of the psychology profession.

    OOPs, failed to read all of Tuna's post. Sorry.

    I sure wish Agricola would explain how it is that we are all missing the hidden meaning of the original article. Isn't an offensive stare as effective a defensive tool as a Gerber multitool? Just drive them out with your stiff upper lip, old boy!

    F4GIB,

    The "hidden meaning" is basically, since the media got the Martin case so wrong (they only used the defence case, when Martin was convicted they either could own up, or continue along the "miscarriage of justice" line, they chose the latter), they have peddled the myth that if you defend yourself, you go to jail for more than the burglar / attacker does.

    What the media should say (backed by the law and by events), is that you have the right to defend yourself and your family in your home. That they do not says an awful lot about them.

    Despite trapperjohns comments, this article will have gone through the editorial process and so represents the Scotsman

    I prefer a state of passive aggressiveness. Say, "No, please don't hurt me" as i unload into the perp

    Guys easy......

    EASY!

    Please remember that our x-bretheren since 1776 still had not learned about how real life works as late as 1938.... Seems they still have not learned how to stand up to violent individuals or groups.

    Remember a chap named Neville Chamberlaine? "Peace in our time...."
    As the Brits attempted to appease a criminal on a national level....
    I reference this

    Does the original article posted in this thread sound at ALL like the following from NC himself?
    "
    " The real triumph is that it has shown that representatives of four great Powers can find it possible to agree on a way of carrying out a difficult and delicate operation by discussion instead of by force of arms, and thereby they have averted a catastrophe which would have ended civilisation as we have known it. The relief that our escape from this great peril of war has, I think, everywhere been mingled in this country with a profound feeling of sympathy.

    "

    The sad part is, most Brits know they're being fed a load of bravo sierra by the socialist elite that runs the nation. But after half a century of getting benefits doled out by a manipulative, maternalistic tyranny, they no longer have the will to fight back. On top of this, they are fed a daily dose of propaganda that the US is a battleground full of gun-toting loons and that all will be well if they simply follow the accepted dogma. Citizens are reduced to civilians and told not to fight back. Accept the guiding hand of the mother state to protect you and punish you. You alone are nothing. The community is everything. Don't be like those nasty Americans and try to stand up for yourself or fight back.
