mess with me i breaka you legs … and he did but now is accused of assault by idiot prosecutor

Do you need to see more than this to grasp how dumb the decision made by the plod?

Which now of course leaves him wide open to litigation as the crud with broken limbs is sure to win.  And ... since the arrest was made with a charge of excessive force, how else would a court rule?  So the cards are stacked.  He should have killed both of them, and being in possession of the kind of equipment his business uses, he should have been able to bury them quite deeply on his property.  Who’d look for them?  I really just do not understand the need for the police or the courts in something like this.  No. An end to the unnecessary breathing of the miscreants would be the right and proper solution.

Crime does not pay.

Wanna Bet?  Sure it does.  Especially when a guy like Mr. Woodhouse says later that, he was “gutted and sickened” by what he had done to the perps.  Why? He should feel very good about it.

Andrew Woodhouse on trial facing assault charges on two raiders

The 44-year-old businessman denies GBH and GBH with intent

Kevin Green and Timothy Cross ended up with £75 fines for theft

By James Rush

A businessman who attacked two thieves caught red-handed in a night-time raid was arrested after defending his property, a court has heard.

Andrew Woodhouse, 44, was today on trial facing assault charges on the two raiders he found stealing diesel from his business.

A jury heard how Woodhouse grabbed a fence post one was carrying as a weapon - and used it to fight back against them.

The father-of-five - who says he has repeatedly been a victim of crime at his gardening company - kept hold of the two burglars until police arrived.

But the court was told it was Woodhouse who was then arrested and accused of using excessive force.

The thieves ended up with £75 fines - but businessman Woodhouse could face a prison sentence if he is found guilty of attacking them.

Defence lawyer Andrew Taylor said: ‘These thieves thought they would have nice easy pickings that night.

‘Many people would have given up and just claimed on their insurance but Mr Woodhouse is made of sterner stuff.

‘He showed stoicism, courage and fitness to chase them. One of the men was armed and went to attack him. He acted in lawful self-defence.

‘He agrees the red mist came down which you can understand when his business has almost been wiped out by crime.

‘If it hadn’t been for him these men would not have been caught. Where are we in society when a person cannot act in self-defence to protect his property. That is what Mr Woodhouse was doing.’

Kevin Green, 53, and Timothy Cross, 32, tried to escape into a neighbouring field with jerry cans full of stolen fuel, the court heard.

But Woodhouse chased Green - and caught him near their getaway car. The court heard he then attacked Green leaving him with two broken legs and a broken arm.

The court heard he then chased Cross before rugby-tackling him. He lay on top of the raider until police arrived.

Prosecutor James Wilson said: ‘When he saw his hard-earned money carted off by a couple of ne’er-do-wells, he gave chase in anger intending to injure them.’

Mr Wilson described it an ‘unreasonable and unlawful assault.’

He said: ‘It was not reasonable self-defence. Mr Woodhouse lost his temper and went over the top.

Cleared in 20 minutes: Businessman who defended his property from fuel burglars

A landscape gardener who attacked two thieves he caught trying to steal from his business was cleared of grievous bodily harm in just 20 minutes today.

Andrew Woodhouse, 44, was accused of using excessive force when he broke the arms and legs of one and rugby tackled the other, Cardiff Crown Court heard.

But today the jury decided he had every right to defend his property from criminals Kevin Green and Timothy Cross, who ended up with £75 fines.

The father-of-five had faced a possible life jail sentence - but was found not guilty of two grievous bodily harm charges for the citizen’s arrest of two raiders.

  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
