    Iíve often said about modern society, when these abused and molested women and their families are crying because her attacker has gotten off Scott free due to some technicality, Iím wondering why it ever got to court? Where are her men folk?

    When there was such a case on TV, I instructed my wife and daughter that if any man ever laid hands on them, to tell me, and no one else. Whatever the cops have for him is not sufficient. And if no one knows but me, then Iím not even a suspect. But if you call the cops, and he gets off, and then you do something, youíre obviously the first suspect. People depend on the government to handle all of their problems, and then are upset when they screw it up. Since when has the government ever done anything different?

    Easy for you to say, with your .38 special, but on this side of the pond we are more dependant upon our fighting skills, of which I have none But you are correct, justice is far too important to be left in the hands of the police and courts. Better to say nowt, and quietly do what needs done.

    Your comment about the government being no use reminds me of something a wise man once said: "What have the Romans ever done for us?" Now where did I hear that?

    Plus, of course, taking the 'DIY' approach to revenge attacks too far leads to honour killings and the like.

    I had an old friend who used to say, ďnothing a ski mask and a baseball bat canít fixĒ. Sometimes youíve just got to get their attention.
