I like this sort of thing being discussed on here... no matter how much later in the day after the story broke.
To be honest, when the story first broke on Sky news and was a bit sketchy with details, I did have a peep on here to see if anyone had posted anything about it.

Anyway, on the subject of the story, I really feel for the family who were the victims here. As far as I'm concerned, 'your home is your castle' and if someone enters that place with criminal intent and is a threat to you, you should have the right to defend yourself. If someone was in my house, I'd grab a 'weapon' to protect myself - it would be instinct and fear that would drive me.
I just hope the charges are dropped against the guy. It has been good to see common sense has ruled in similar cases recently.

Fear would drive me too I think. Even more so with the children in the house. Maybe before children, I might have been a bit less ferocious - dunno - hard to say.

"Floral tributes to the dead man have been laid near the scene."

What do posters think of this ? It doesn't sit well with me that 'tributes' are appropriate for a man who died whilst performing a criminal act.

Years ago, it used to be a shameful thing for a family. Now its hero worship.

Just shows how moral standards have changed.

Perhaps we should all chip in on a congratulations card to balance it out?

It is rumoured that the burglar was fine until he arrived at Stepping Hill and was placed on a saline drip and offered a glass of milk.

Doesn't sit well with me either but I guess he was someone's son/father/brother/partner etc.

If my son went to a house, armed with a knife, with every intention of robbing it and prepared to knife the innocent victim, got killed himself in the process, I wouldn't be going to the scene to lay flowers. I'd be locked in the cupboard under the stairs, howling with grief and shame to be honest.
