Posted in Videos by 200

Wouldn’t it be grand if people feared this would happen every time they tried to mug someone….

    Seriously though, would that action even be legal in the UK?

    mmm… I would say that he used appropriate force to stop and help apprehend a criminal escaping from the scene of a robbery.

    I suppose it would really be down to if the crim made a complaint…

    If he did we should not arrest the karate dude – but he should have a statement under caution taken and a file send to CPS for a decision…

    Chances are they would not prosecute.

    actually- I would be kind of inclined to take him up to the Police bar and buy him a pint…

    Don’t get me wrong – I applaud the swift application of justice in the film. The karate guy’s technical skill is worthy of mention too.

    My only concern in this case is that the kick might be perceived as somehow more violent / less justified than a punch, or tripping up the mugger as he runs. Of course, tripping someone running full pelt could do serious injury when they crash to the floor – but this issue of “reasonable force” seems to me to be wide open to (mis) interpretation.

    Not that it applies to me, my Kung Fu skills are pretty weak.

    Top kick that man. Minimum force used correctly. The scrote may have been armed. And I think he may just think again…..

    Bravo!

    That would stand up in court. 1 kick, job done. No follow up beating when he hit the floor. Full restraint on his part.

    A job well done.

    This was actually shot for a television show and the bloke who was flattened was an actor.
    The person dashing in is the producer, the martial arts man was just there at the wrong time as they knew nothing about the show.

    Outstanding that man!

    I recall many years back, “coat-hangering” some thug under similar circumstances. My big worry at the time was that I hadnt crushed something in his throat. [he was making funny noises] These days I wouldnt even consider it due to the likelyhood of facing charges myself!

    An elderly great aunt once took out a would-be robber with her handbag. It had about half a kilo of loose change in it and broke his jaw. And an aunt who did meals on wheels in the days when they carried the food in pans had a flasher expose himself to her. She threw a pan of hot custard all over his dangly bits…

    MTG,

    Why run around the outside, ghasping for breath, like you’ve been in the middle of something?

    Tou’re recognised by all the Police blogs.

    Surely, this is enough.

    Isn’t it?

    Shijuro is out of his skull as a result of his fetish with hygiene. Has his brain hot laundered and spun dry at least twice a week.

    Funny how Police blogs attract the nutty fringe- or is it all blogs?
