A man who consumed 42 stubbies and 35 bongs before shooting dead an intruder is jailed for eight years.
So for defending his home against invasion he gets 8 years jail. I do not condone the killing of people, but if you have someone trying to break down your door then your not going to wait politely for the police to get to your home, write a report tell you got robbed and can do nothing to help get your property back (nothing against the police, but that’s often the reality.) What really has my ire is that they purposely try to demonize him in the first sentence by stating “He consumed 42 stubbies and 35 bongs.” I’m not saying whether he did or did not consume such items, but I have my doubts considering they mention he’s an experienced shooter.
The matter remains that he gets 8 years jail and there is not mention of what will happen the other men he tried to break in; if they will be pursued at all, but maybe they’ll think twice now. Again I’m not saying killing one of the robbers was a good thing its bad thing one of the men ending up dieing, but I doubt they’ll forget what happened.
