Chris Grayling is reported as saying that a Conservative government would change the law regarding householders using self defence in their own home and goes on to say: "I am not sure what the change would be. There are two or three options".
As I have said previously, in my book criminals have no rights because they have - through their actions - abrogated the rights to which they had.
Any person committing a criminal act, such as burglary, must suffer the consequences of their actions, to whatever level of consequence that results. It must surely cross their minds that if they were not in the position they had put themselves through their criminal intent, said consequences would not have resulted. Therefore if their activity results in a damn good beating, or even their death, then they only have themselves to blame.
