businessman who attacked armed thug for taking his family hostage is jailed.

This will more then likely be my only post for today.  Wish it were otherwise.

This HAD to be posted today.  Sure, I understand that “excessive force” was used but the idea of jail for this guy makes me see red. Yeah. RCOB again.

I suppose the fact that the homeowner is very wealthy will now be hit with a law suit. If he is, he should plan very carefully, even if it takes a couple years.
Then take out the lawyer who represents his accuser, and take out the suing family too.  But first, he should send his own family away and then go where there isn’t any extradition with the UK.  If he can still hold on to his money, he should be ok almost anywhere.

This article had been edited for space and I have not included photos.  See the link below for both.


Millionaire businessman who attacked armed thug for taking his family hostage is jailed… but the intruder walks free

A millionaire businessman who fought off knife-wielding thugs who threatened to kill his family was jailed for 30 months today - while his attackers remain free to walk the streets.

Munir Hussain, his wife and their three children stumbled on three intruders, wearing balaclavas, in their home when they returned from their mosque during Ramadan.

The family were ordered to lie on the floor of the living room with their hands behind their backs.

As four of them were tied up, Mr Hussain’s teenage son escaped through a window.

Two of the raiders fled when they realised the youngster had gone.

Mr Hussain then threw a coffee table at the third man, 56-year-old Walid Salem, hitting him in the face.

He then enlisted his brother Tokeer in chasing the offenders down, bringing one of them to the ground in a nearby garden in the street in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

What followed was described in Reading Crown Court as self-defence that went too far, leaving intruder Salem with a permanent brain injury after he was struck with a cricket bat so hard that it broke into three pieces.

Judge Reddihough noted Mr Hussain’s ‘courage’ but said he had carried out a ‘dreadful, violent attack’ on the intruder as he lay defenceless.

Salem was the only intruder caught after the incident on September 3, 2008, but his injuries meant he was not fit to plead after being charged with false imprisonment.

Salem, who has a string of 50 past convictions, was given a two-year supervision order at a court hearing in September this year.


The brothers, described as family men at the heart of the local community, were found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm with intent after a trial earlier this year.

The prosecution alleged two other men took part in the so-called ‘revenge attack’ with them.

Munir Hussain was given a 30-month sentence, because Judge John Reddihough decided he had been subjected to more provocation than his brother, Tokeer, who was jailed for 39 months.

Judge Reddihough said Munir Hussain’s family had been subject to a ‘serious and wicked offence’ and praised the bravery of his teenage son who escaped to raise the alarm.

The judge told them: ‘It may be that some members of the public, or media commentators, will assert that the man Salem deserved what happened to him at the hands of you and the two others involved, and that you should not have been prosecuted and need not be punished.

‘However, if persons were permitted to take the law into their own hands and inflict their own instant and violent punishment on an apprehended offender rather than letting justice take its course, then the rule of law and our system of criminal justice hand holding , which are the hallmarks of a civilised society, would collapse.’

What the fuck is this ass wipe talking about?  It collapsed a very long time ago.  Where has he been all this time?  In some fuckin ivory tower or on another planet?  And what’s this total and absolute nonsense about justice taking its course? Huh?  As in, dragging out for years and then the gremlin gets another ASBO?  WTF ... What the hell does 50, five fuckin oh, FIFTY convictions say about justice taking its course?  Where’s the justice when some creep is still free after 25 convictions?  Well, if the gremlin is really brain dead then maybe there won’t be a 51st conviction. At least this one criminal career is at an end. And it wasn’t the “System” that brought it there.  NO.  It was one outraged home owner.  Kudos and Bravo and Well Done!

Sentencing the brothers, whose mother had died just before the incident, the judge added: ‘This case is a tragedy for you and your families.

‘Sadly, I have no doubt that my public duty requires me to impose immediate prison sentences of some length upon you.

‘This is in order to reflect the serious consequences of your violent acts and intent and to make it absolutely clear that, whatever the circumstances, persons cannot take the law into their own hands, or carry out revenge attacks upon a person who has offended them.’

The brothers, who live near each other in High Wycombe, did not react as they were sentenced, but members of their family watching from the public gallery tearfully shook their heads.

Michael Wolkind, defending, argued that his client was the ‘real victim’ in the case.

Mr Wolkind said the case had similarities to that of farmer Tony Martin, who shot a teenage intruder, noting there was public support in both cases.

He told the court: ‘The public surely do not want Munir Hussain to receive imprisonment. I don’t seek a medal, I seek justice for him.’

Munir Hussain, usually a controlled man, had simply acted in the heat of the moment in ‘extreme circumstances of stress’, he added.

The prosecution said the Hussains were not being convicted for apprehending Salem, but for the ‘excessive force’ they used on him.

Hilary Neville, prosecuting, said: ‘What started as reasonable self defence by Munir Hussain then turned into excessive force by virtue of a sustained attack by Munir, Tokeer and at least two others.’

The court heard sentencing would have an impact on the local economy, with 10 members of staff losing their jobs at Soundsorba, the company run by Munir Hussain, who employs his brother as a technical director.

The firm, which produces sound-absorbing material, has an annual turnover of £2.5m.

Munir Hussain feels he let down his wife Shaheen Begum and sons Awais, 21, Samad, 15, and 18-year-old daughter Arooj, by failing to defend them against Salem and his gang.

His wife had suffered a stroke prior to the incident, and had since had a mini stroke.
