MSM in spin overdrive as the self-defence debate continues. First this in Melbourne:
“I was kicked and punched, even tasered,” he said. “I feel a bit like a tin man now as my muscles slowly get feeling back.”
The 22-year-old and his 19-year-old partner woke to shouting and threats as several men kicked down their front door. Seven or eight men are believed to have broken into the house at about 1.45am this morning, police said. Armed with a range of weapons, the gang of thugs attacked James and his 56-year-old father.
“They were asking where my car keys were and where I kept my money,” James said. “Then they turned around and started beating me up.”
The shaken victim said the armed robbers made off with $200 but could have taken more if not for his quick thinking. “When they took my car keys, I let the air out of the tyres so they wouldn’t take the car,” James said.
“They managed to find money but thankfully left my car behind,” he said.
Have to laugh at the Herald Sun pro-victimhood angle. Apparently letting the tyres down on your car is the preferred method of fighting back against people who have already beaten and tased you.
Stunning and brave.
This is the 2nd taser attack in a week in Melbourne, although Victoria Police later claimed that the first car jacking by six men in Bundoora did not use a taser. It’s a moot point though, members of the public both unable to defend themselves against roaming another win.
Great to see they were both able to get their phones out, dial Police and get them to attend in time while they were being attacked.
And another example that disproves the argument that “if we legalise tasers then criminals will also get them.” They already have access to this and worse. All that argument does is re-enforce the notion that being a disarmed victim is a morally superior position, to people who do not care for your unarmed predicament.
Delaying the arrival of a taser, pepper spray or firearm by an hour or more (if you’re in the country) from a third party is apparently seen as the moral path in a self-defence situation in Australia.
Meanwhile, the providers of said third party force were in action in Canberra:
Firstly, it was very fortunate that no-one was hurt in this incident. However, many questions arise here. How was he able to disarm the officer? Why did Police try to taser a man with a gun? etc.
This just shows you that Police are human, fallible creatures unlike the propaganda that claims they’re invincible, their training standards aren’t as good as some claim and that they are just as prone to assault or attack as any member of the public.
Not a good look for the Police, when they also continue to claim the public has no business protecting themselves or owning the means to self-protection, yet here they are putting the public at risk.
