The Times of London has a story about a man who was convicted of manslaughter for stabbing a burglar. Here's the essence of it:
A FATHER-OF-TWO who stabbed a “career criminal” to death with a bread knife after finding him burgling his family’s home was found guilty of manslaughter yesterday.So... was justice done in this case? What rights ought a man to have in defending his home? What rights ought an intruder in that home have?
Barry-Lee Hastings, 25, shook his head and fought back tears as an Old Bailey jury cleared him of murder but found him guilty of killing Roger Williams.
Hastings, who was remanded in custody to be sentenced next month, faces a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
