Because you are supposed to rely on the STATE for everything, even your own safety. Even when the state has proven it is completely inept. PLATELL’S PEOPLE: After coroner ruled burglar was lawfully killed by pensioner, why I keep a gun under my bed and why homes must remain our castles.
Two masked men, high on drugs, invaded his home. One was armed with a screwdriver. He grabbed a 12-inch kitchen knife to convince them to leave. One was injured, and died from his injuries.
He was arrested on suspicion of murder, while Vincent’s family and fellow members of the travelling community turned the road outside his house into a Princess Diana-like shrine to their lost ‘brother’.
Osborn-Brooks and his wife have had to leave their home and live in a secret location, with new identities away from friends because Vincent’s community has sworn to avenge his death.
He was acquitted by way of a coroner’s inquest that returned a finding of self-defense, but he and his wife can’t return to their home, because without a decent firearm, and a magazine with enough rounds to handle number of hoodlums that might come seeking revenge…. And the cops are apparently not much help.
