I wonder what would have happened in this supposedly "civilized" country. I think I can guess the answer. :eyes

I hope the little girl was aware of the fact that daddy destroyed the monster. It may help her with her nightmares to come.

I think it did get covered, but there's no harm in repeating a story with a happy ending. :happy

If I was the father encountering that situation, I would get charged as I would ensure that the bastard lived but would walk the earth for the rest of his days regretting what he did and what I did to him as a result.

There are some good stories - but I still resent what happened to Tony Martin.

Like everyone else I was so pleased with the ending. After what happened it was the best outcome.

he should have shot them in his house. By the time he did shoot them they were not a threat any more (or at least for the time being).
Even American law don't take kindly to burglars being shot on the way out

Be interesting to see how the George Zimmerman case resolves it self in the US. That'll set a whole new precedent.
