How Defense Stories Should be Reported

You know it saddens me that we have to go to India to find a proper response to self defense situations. Snowflakes in Hell has a good story posted about a girl in India who defender her family:

Militants often demand food and lodging in nearby villages.

When they forced their way into Miss Kausar’s home, her father Noor Mohammad refused their demands and was attacked.

His daughter was hiding under a bed when she heard him crying as the gunmen thrashed him with sticks. According to police, she ran towards her father’s attacker and struck him with an axe. As he collapsed, she snatched his AK47 and shot him dead.

Good work by his daughter. Also note that this is a story involving an AK-47 that was actually an AK-47. Any how as stated on Snowflakes in Hell if this story happened here the police would have to give a speech about how what the man’s daughter did was the incorrect action to take in such a situation. You know the usual speech police give when a person takes their own defense as a personal responsibility. Here is how Indian police respond:

Police have hailed the woman’s bravery.

They said she would be nominated for the president’s gallantry award.

She may also receive a £4,000 reward if, as police believe, the dead terrorist is confirmed as Uzafa Shah, a wanted Pakistani LeT commander who had been active in the area for the past four years.

That’s right reward the person who saved their family, don’t berate their actions. I wish the police in our country responded in same.
