Enjoy reading the 27th Instalment in the series surrounding the Cases of the Murder Squad Detective Joseph Lind and his young partner Shelley Shields.
The right to guard, to protect the property and belongings that you have taken all your life to accrue, is a basic right of Law.
But in protecting that Property, or belongings, when does such action endanger your life? And is those Belongings and Property worth the fight to the death? Your death from the hands of some drug fuelled or addled mind hell bent on finding funds for the next fix.
When does “Reasonable Force” in the meaning of the Law become more than that?
Culpable Homicide or even worse?
Is those actions to protect hearth and home worth the risk of injury, imprisonment or death. Is that the real worth of worldly goods?
The Murder Squad Team have opposite opinions on culpability and the innocence or guilt of the person who may have been purely trying to protect their own property.
