The British public just takes it, and won't fight back even when their lives are at stake.

Oh yeah, it's "breaking the law" to defend your neighborhood from toughs? It just figures that the cops would rather arrest people defending themselves, than to stand up to illegal gangs roaming the streets.

In the US, it's call "self defense". NOBODY said anything about lynching them, but a good beating is the best way to turn bullies into potential friends.

Just goes to prove you guys are a bunch of wusses, and that you won't even stand up to these people even to save your own lives.

did you know that in the UK it was a criminal offence to shoot or beat someone breaking into our house.. no joke.. we are told to use reasonble force only...now it seems we can bash a burglar.. oh goody goody.. Now we CAN bash a burglar... but not in our gardens: Law to allow homeowners to defend their property comes into force | Daily Mail Online
Seems crazy but happened. Anthony Edward "Tony" Martin (born c. 1944) is a farmer from Norfolk, England, who shot a burglar dead in his home in August 1999. Martin was convicted of murder, later reduced to manslaughter on grounds of diminished responsibility, and served three years in prison, having been denied parole.

That's just insane. Next you are going to tell me that even your police don't have guns...

I was wondering the exact same thing -- it certainly fits their modus operandi.

It would not be PC to describe the gangs.

Don't get me started on that PC mentality.....sickening the hell out of me!

I should be able to use any word/term that the subject in question would to describe/identify themselves.
Any information that is relevant and apparent to identify anyone should be used. Period.

I agree that PC is way over used and restrictive. It is used to put out false descriptions or more precisely no descriptions of groups heavily involved in crime. If a group is prone to criminal activity today's PC will label you a racist if you notice that fact.
