Whining burglar locked up after HE dialled 999 to complain he had been shot with air rifle after breaking into family home
A judge has backed a teenager for dispensing ‘summary justice’ by shooting a burglar with an air rifle.
Gary Holmes, 19, said he fired twice in self-defence when intruder Lewis Patterson, 20, went for him with an iron bar.
Lawyers agreed that Mr Holmes, who feared for the safety of his girlfriend and her two-month-old baby, had acted within the law to protect himself.
Stunned: Gary Holmes, 19, shot metal bar-wielding burglar Lewis Patterson with his air rifle ... only for the criminal to call the police
Astonishingly, Patterson himself called the police to claim he was the victim.
But he pleaded guilty at Hull Crown Court to burglary and was sent to a young offenders’ institution for 18 months.

Pity Mr. Holmes only had an air rifle.

If they were smart we might never catch them."There is no 'nice' way to arrest a potentially dangerous, combative suspect. The police are our bodyguards, our hired fists, batons and guns. We pay them to do the dirty work of protecting us, the work we're too afraid, too unskilled or too civilized to do ourselves. We expect them to keep the bad guys out of our businesses, cars and houses, out of our face. We want them to 'take care of the problem.' We just don't want to see how its done."
