UK Newspaper Demonizes Burglary Victim As Vigilante

"'I don't regret killing that teenage burglar', says vigilante farmer Tony Martin."

Vigilante farmer Tony Martin has said he has no regrets about shooting and killing a teenager who broke into his farmhouse 10 years ago today.

The 64-year-old insisted he was right to kill petty crook Fred Barras, 16, and seriously injure his accomplice Brendan Fearon, 31, after they broke into his home.

'Regrets? I've got no more regrets than people who break into people's houses,' the eccentric vigilante said last night.

The UK is mired in the sort of liberal attitudes that the US saw during the 60's and 70's, when criminals were coddled and victims maligned. The abused working classes see Martin as a hero, while the elites see him as a vigilante and a menace. How would it sound if the genders and the crime were changed a bit?

Dirty whore Tina Martin has no regrets about shooting a teenaged rapist who broke into her farmhouse 10 years ago today.

Sounds pretty bad, doesn't it? I dont' like it the original way, myself.
