Council leaves lights on to protect intruders

Should we as law abiding people have a duty of care to criminals that come into our homes? Midlothian council seems to think so. They have kept the lights on in an abandoned school to make it easier for criminals so they don’t get hurt. The electricity bill comes to £3000 per year.

I think this is stupid. No one should have a duty of care to criminals. If they hurt themselves they deserve it and it is their own responsibility.

Sadly if a burglar comes into your house and injures himself he can, and will, sue you and win.

Ah! Such is likein the Socialist UK.

I think they should leave all lights off and paint guns which automatically fire when they sense an intruder. Then let the ASBOs sue.
