Dog owners might have to tie up their pets to stop them attacking burglars, police have warned – amid growing controversy over a clampdown on dangerous animals.

The Association of Chief Police Officers say planned amendments to the Dangerous Dogs Act could leave householders 'liable to prosecution' if their dog bites a burglar while they are out.

Ministers want to close a loophole in the law that makes it difficult to prosecute dog attacks that take place on private property.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

They should really ban locked doors and windows.

It's very possible a thief could hurt himself by kicking in a door, or get cut on that glass.

In fact, if Britons would just leave all their valuables in the yard, I think we could all sleep better at night.

Wow, just wow.  Reminds me of Jim Carrey in Liar Liar, when his secretary says something about her friend being sued because a theif got hurt breaking in, and he says he would have gotten him $10k or whatever lol.  

Don't you think a thief gives up his right to be safe when he decides to start stealing?  Some lawmakers should really be kicked in the head, might actually knock some sense into them.

That is why I am so happy that my state passed a law that says if you get hurt while trespassing, tough luck you shouldn't of been trespassing.

This is the kind of garbage we're trying to avoid in the USA, people argue with us about giving up our guns, not realizing it's only a stepping stone to this kind of crap.

I've tried to tell so many people you give them an inch and they will take a yard.

Maybe we can all come in here and tell them that tying up all their pets is the best thing for them. I mean, you can't have a dog wandering around your own property! It's too dangerous! This dog culture and the dog-nuts over there are out of control.

Protect the burglars.... Sounds about right. Love the order our governments priorities are in....

Once someone breaks and enters a property their human rights should be gone. If you made that law, then it would stop people from breaking and entering. Instead we are treating Burglary as a ****ing occupation.


As Ealdwita said in another thread, it's unlikely a Burglar has told anyone where he is going, enter my property and you will most likely disappear. (I have a messy house, easy to get lost... cough)

Well, if somebody breaks in, we have the right to use "reasonable force". To put it simply: force that can be reasonably justified in court.
What that force is depends on the circumstances.
For example: Lets say somebody has entered your yard with the intent of robbing you. You decide to go outside and knock that person out. You are likely to get in trouble.
This is because the law wouldn't see their presence in your garden to be enough of a situation to justify that action.

The way I see it: Enter somebodies property with the intent to steal or harm, means that you should face the consequences! You made the decision!

Why not just go rob the houses of those morons voting for this crap?

Comparing a dog to a gun is just ridiculous.
