Brit on Trial for Roughing Up Burglar

Before any Britons take the rash step of defending their home, property, and/or family from burglars, they should keep in mind that their government, being composed of looters, will naturally take the burglars’ side. You don’t even need to use a gun to get in big trouble:

Arthur Wilkinson and an accomplice beat Stephen Pugh when they discovered him and two other men trying to steal quad bikes from the defendant’s compound in Horden, near Peterlee, east Durham, in January.

Astonishingly, “the defendant” refers not to the criminal, but to the guy who roughed him up in defense of his property.

Fortunately the defendant had a defense.

Wilkinson’s barrister told the court that the defendant had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder at the time, and how one of the men had pushed him to the ground. …

He said: ‘This man was in a vulnerable position, physically and mentally, and that had a significant bearing on the way he then reacted. …

‘You entered a yard where you work to find three men in the process of burgling your premises, that was a very traumatic experience for you as evidenced by the psychiatric report.”

Defending your property from trespassing thieves who outnumber you is no defense in a world run by moonbats. But portraying yourself as a sniveling victim undergoing a “traumatic experience” is always a defense. The authorities reward those who lay their self-respect on the altar of political correctness.

The judge gave Wilkinson four years “after taking into consideration his guilty plea and the contents of his psychiatric report.” Imagine his punishment if instead of whimpering about trauma he had pleaded innocent and stood by his natural right to defend his property.

As for the actual criminal who received the well-earned beating,

Mr Pugh is not facing any charges in relation to the case.

No doubt Pugh will nurse his injuries for a leisurely lifetime on the dole. Maybe he can even sue Wilkinson to get those bikes he was trying to steal.

On a tip from AC.

    Like I always say, catch someone doing this shit, do what you have to do and drag what’s left up in the hills, or a convenient deep lake or quarry!

    Homocide isn’t a crime without the body! Can’t prove someone was killed if you don’t also have someone whose dead!

    Shame these “men” can’t find these same nuggets to protect their female children from muslim predators, huh?

  2. klae says:

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? In a world run by moonbats the trauma is an on-going, daily continuum. I agree with WhiteFalcon1; nothing like a little “Dextering” to relieve stress.

    In the western US it’s called the 3 S’s. Shoot, Shovel, Silent.

    Let the term “Great Britain” never be uttered again. Whatever they are, they are not Great.

    I’m open for suggestions.
    “Little Britain?”
    “Petty Britain?”
    “Britain, where the women are women and the men are too?”
    “Mad Cowistan?”

    “Britain, the land of the wee people”
    “Britain, the land that has forgotten how to fight?”

    Unfortunately, we are not too far from that here. I hear police here lecturing people constantly that a DVD player or some prescription medication is not worth a person’s life. Very true, but the lectures are directed at homeowners in a pathetic attempt to protect the malevolent youths that love to break into peoples homes while they are home.

    “Just give them whatever they want and they will go away. It is not worth it to try and stop them”.

    Of course, the stories of the people that are raped and beaten and killed AFTER the cooperated fully are downplayed or mis-reported.

  6. SmiteTheUS says:

    There’s just one little problem, under most European sets of laws, there is no right to defend your property as there is in the US.
    Killing somebody because they are stealing a thing from you, is seen as unjustifiable. If you get robbed, you let it happen, call the police and your insurance company afterwards. You’ll get a refund and they’ll try to get the guy. You might call this behaviour “unmanly” or “wimpy”, the fact of the matter is that we value a human life more than a material thing.

    Four years hard time?! moslem “immigrants” – I call them invaders which is what they are – who murder the European natives, both in Britain and on the Continent usually get a year or two on probation for actually killing their victims.

    Moonbat justice indeed..

    CARE TO EXPLAIN, libs?!

    Trolls.. anyone..?

    chirp.. chirp.. chirp..

    “Just give them whatever they want and they will go away. It is not worth it to try and stop them”.

    That used to be the approach that people took when a plane was hijacked, too. Personally I don’t think we will see a US plane successfully hijacked anytime soon. Many Americans have learned the lesson that they won’t, necessarily, “go away.”

    Same deal with personal property. If you want my stuff, come to my home when no one is home, and I’ll deal with the insurance company. Come to my home when someone is home, and I question whether you want just my stuff.

    Fortunately, Mrs. Adams and I don’t have to fight over the shotgun. I just have to make sure that she uses her’s. She may, in fact, prefer her Glock.

  9. Sam Adams says:

    Christmas is coming. Nothing says “I love you” to your sweetheart more than a gun that she would like to use. Or give her a ten trip pass to the gun range.

  10. Bo-Jangles says:

    Britain is the perfect example of what happens when a weak-minded nation is hopelessly addicted to extreme political correctness. And guess what? We’re not that far behind them.

    Aset Magomadova leaves Calgary court Thursday July 15, 2010, after a judge sentenced the city woman to a three-year term of probation for strangling her promiscuous, 14-year-old daughter. Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Sal LoVecchio said a non-custodial punishment would be sufficient for Magomadova’s killing of daughter Aminat. Magomadova was convicted of manslaughter last October in the teen’s Feb. 26, 2007, death. (Photo by JIM WELLS/Calgary Sun)

    Islamic Child Abuse gets you Probation in Arizona

    Last week, during a sentencing hearing Aiya’s father admitted to attempting to kill his daughter by cutting her neck. Mohammed Altameemi, 46, received two years’ probation for disorderly conduct. Altameeni’s wife, Yursah Farhan, 51, was sentenced to two years’ probation for unlawful imprisonment of her daughter and the victim’s sister Tabarack Altameemi , 18, pled guilty to assault and received two years’ probation (she broke a glass over her sister head during the attack).

    @ Ummah Gummah: Why did you go and confuse SmiteTheUS with the facts? You just ruined his Leftist delusion of reality. 😉

  14. Ummah Gummah says:


    @ snuss: LOL

    I posted proof of what I say – and what everyone already knows – not for the benefit of the lib/moslem interloper, but rather for those who might be confused if I had let the lib/moslem’s comment stand unanswered.

    We are better than the MSM. We are always able to provide proof of what we say.

    Winning back America’s minds, one at a time..

    You said, “fact of the matter is that we value a human life more than a material thing.”

    Pray sir, was this statement meant to be satire?

    If not which European countries do you allege is so above materialism?

    Entertain us, please cite such advanced societies?

    In 2002, the finance minister of the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany stated, “ONLY idiots have to rob a bank to make money these days,” (See the Economist 4-4-2002.

    Avarice thy name is Tony and Cherie Blair, Jacques Chirac, Berlusconi, Akis Tsochatzopoulos,IKEA Russia Corruption Scandal, Parmalat group, Alstom, SAAB Avionics and British Aerospace, Siemens bribery scandal in Greece, UK Parliament Expense Scandal, the EU Parliament, and the infamous Bank of Credit and Commerce International, etc., etc….

    How far back to you want to go? That was only the last twenty years, I can keep going.

    Your patronizing anti-American condescension only works on those uninitiated with Europe.

  16. JDavid says:

    What’s to defend? As far as the gov’t is concerned (ours too, now)EVERYTHING belongs to the gov’t and they just being beneficent to give any back after tax extortion.

  17. StanInTexas says:

    “CensoredForAmerica says: I was very clearly talking about a very specific scenario, the scenario being a simple robbery without life endagerment”

    And please tell us all how you know in advance that the person that is robbing you will not wait until you have complied to assault or kill you.

  18. Dave Blount says:

    Smite and CensoredForAmerica are Gunther come to nip at our ankles once again. His inane comments will be deleted.

  19. Put your hands up says:

    Um, kinda like George Zimmman?

  20. Hill says:


    Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

    I called you out for the BS hyperbole regarding Europe and the fantastical statement that Europeans are so advanced and beyond materialism and the best rebuttal you can muster up is name calling and personal attacks.

    Sigh. What a disappointment. Typical of the left.

    Clearly, I am not engaging with someone from the Oxford Union.

    ” But our laws very clearly state a robbery is no reason to kill someone.” The attitudes and laws very country to country. Stop speaking in the collective we. I assure you home invasions/robbery in Italy and Greece are dealt with very differently, then in emasculated PC England. Just ask poor Tony Martin. Not to mention several other recent cases in the UK, where the British court finally saw the idiocy of sentencing people for defending their families and home.

    A reminder, here is what you said, ” the fact of the matter is that we value a human life more than a material thing.” Again, I know Europe very very well. And there are plenty of examples of how Europeans devalue human life-everyday. Just Google poor Tamar Bailey and her state approved murder via her local council (UK).

    Ahem, the same governments who you claim creates an ‘advance’ law. A law that always defends the criminal. Why is that????? Do you even know the foundation for post modern European law? You have been so indoctrinated by Communist-Socialist ideology, you are not even aware of it.

    First rule of law in Western Communist countries.

    -Always Victimize the poor criminals. Whilst vilifying the victim and make them pay for the criminals lifestyle choice.

    Ultimately, the left has yet to figure out, that human nature is just that. Nature. One can not say, what or how they will react in a moment of crime against a criminal. As it is rarely calm and benign, when adrenaline kicks in and survival mode kicks off, one does not think, they react.

    Clearly, you have never been a victim of crime to moralize what one should and should not do.

    Just because you are a coward. Do not expect the rest of us to lay there and take it.

    Finally, considering that most government officials (irregardless of country) have access to private/state security or police protection. Who the F**k are they to talk down to us and tell us, and tell us via the law, that we do not have the same rights to safety and security that they do.

    @StanInTexas December 6, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    Exactly. Spot on.

    @Dave Blount

    Personally, I am enjoying his comments. They are amusing.

    If he had balls he would stick to one name. But he has already identified himself as a coward and thus needs multiple identities to have a backbone. Apparently, the anonymity of the internet is not enough.

    Clearly, He was banking on the vast majority of the people here being from North America and not being overly familiar with Europe and thus be obnoxious and condescending; knowing that there would probably be very few people here to challenge his idiocy and lies.
