That would work here in the states. I don't know if it would work over in the UK or not. He could always get a taser, that way instead of killing the person he would just immobilize them.

Sorry to hear about that Brook, and I hope you recover quickly

Its horrible when something like this happens, because even though the injuries don't last very long, the what happened part sticks in your memory.

Don't let it frighten you from going out though. Carry on as normal.

Not really because you have a reason to do it now. I like to take an 18" machete blade and cut their arms off. But I would be in prison for doing that.

I'd be better to shoot them straight off. You shoot to kill, not shoot to wound. Its easier to get a lethal shot (chest or head) than a non lethal shot(arms or legs) and if you pull a gun on them and don't shoot they might pull one on you and shoot.

Nah. I'm talking about arbitrarily hurting innocent people. I would do the same thing if someone stole a bike like that.
