So if a young child ran down someone's drive after a ball, and got

Read my post again. I
suggested the OP may live in a country where defending your property is both
legal and necessary. Of

I also suggested we live in a state that is becoming more and more hamstrung by
laws telling us what
we can't do, especially with our own property. Ask Tony Martin if he thinks the
law allows you to
defend your own property. I hope you are never in the position of having to
decide whether a scumbag
can just take your property and get off scott-free, or whether he should be
prevented and suffer some

seriously injured an innocent person through the use of a potentially
lethal 'security' device, in which case, the use of the term idiot
should be the least of your worries.
