I could also have posted the article about how the Brit Govt wants to issue each citizen a Carbon Ration Card. But I decided to be merciful.

FWIW, this sort of thing is reported to happen in every country and every state of the US. Sometimes the reporting is dead wrong; other times the prosecution doesn't have the full facts. These things usually work out in time. Quit obsessing over it.

This guy did the right thing, and should be rewarded, not punished. I did enjoy how he's a "Businessman" and not the "ex-motorcyclist proprietor of a tattoo parlor." I'm sure the media would have chosen different phrasing in a different case.

Can't allow it. If people get the idea that they can defend themselves against criminals it would mean the extermination of the political and legal professions.
