I Guess She Needs to Run Farther

From John C. Dvorak’s blog we get a story that starts like this:

During the conversation the frail widow, who fled to Britain from Communist East Germany

Sadly it appears as though she hasn’t ran far enough to escape a police state:

A disabled pensioner was hauled before the courts and charged with assault after she prodded a teenage ‘hoodie’ in the chest with her finger.

Renate Bowling, 71, confronted the 17-year-old youth in the street after stones were thrown at her home.

Yes some punks threw stones at her house and she confronted them because she’s old and therefore is from a generation that has a spinal cord. During the confrontation she pokes one of the hooks in the chest with her finger and ,being this is Britain, is brought up on assault charges.

Is there anything that is legal in that police state across the pond?
