So you may be asking who is Tony Martin?
Tony Martin woke one night to find two burglars ransacking his home, In an attempt to protect himself and his property he picked up a shotgun and fired two shots, he killed one burglar and wounded the other.
Martin is now in prison serving time for manslaughter.
Brendon Fearon (the burglar that he wounded) is also serving time and has over 30 convictions for burglary.
so what eh?
Well Brendon Fearon is now suing Tony Martin for damages and claims to have suffered post-traumatic stress, whats more he has been granted Legal Aid to do this.
In comparsion, about six months ago the old woman who lives across the road from us was burgled, not only was she cleaned out but the bastards also ransacked the house, she was'nt insured as she could'nt afford to pay for it and was left with nothing, before this happened I'd often see her pottering around, now shes scared to leave the house and sits in front of the window watching an old black n white TV which was donated to her by a neighbour. and the only support she was offered from the police was a routine house call and a leaflet pushed through the door about Victim Support.
WTF? IMO Tony Martin should never have been sent to prison in the first place, and the fact that Fearon has been granted legal Aid to sue is a joke and an insult to all the people that have been a victim of crime and never received a penny in compensation.
The UK is f@#ked up
