similar thing happened in Greece with the recent influx of Albanian thugs. Its just easier to dump the body of homoe invaders along the road.

nancy-boy Canadians.

Out of the whole article, that's the part that made me laugh the most. Of course, there's a whole bunch of Canadians in the NHL that would probably disagree with that. I wonder how they vote?

"...I would use every effort and means I possess to kill the intruder."

I agree, but be warned like I was by a policeman friend; say you were stopping the threat, not killing him/her. It will make a big difference in the police report and your future.

I figure my practiced Mozanbique drills will stop the threat. If the creep survives, we should be amazed.

Just like an Englishman to bring his fists to a gunfight.

True story from many years ago in a neighboring jurisdiction...

call into Sheriff's Dept. advising to send deputies to caller's house as he had just shot and killed a burglar. Call-taker, who happened to be a deputy known to the caller, asked X, is this guy in your house?

To which X replied, "how long before the deputies get here?"

True story from archy, from several years back:

Upon calling the local 911 number to report an armed robbery no longer in progress at the business I managed, the sleepy-voiced dispatcher enquired if I wished my call directed to the local police, county sheriff or fire department. I told him I'd talk with the local cops, but he might want to give the county coroner a call and send him round, too.

That woke the lad right up.

LOL - that will sure get your attention

re: "sleepy dispatcher"

We had one that liked to sleep on the midnight shift...every once in a while one of us would find a nice deserted spot, turn on our siren and scream into the radio:

"[car #] 10-80 !!!!," create fake statict noise and then cut transmission...

...while the rest of the shift watched this dude scramble from a dead sleep and try to contact the car involved in the "chase"
