Mention the words 'Reasonable Force' and you come up with a recipe that evokes heated debate among many. The case of the Norfolk farmer, Tony Martin for example, was seen by many as a travesty of justice, but the upside of the case was the first time, virtually every person in the UK started asking: 'What does "Reasonable Force" actually mean?'
There is a lot of subjective advice given out by well meaning individuals as to what they think Reasonable Force means, and many law-abiding citizens accept this advice, sometimes without question. However, much of the advice given is negative in it's content. It tells us what we can't do - not necessarily what we can.
This book is different. It is about what we can do. It's about re-addressing the balance. It is about what our rights are, especially our right, and indeed at times our duty, to use Reasonable Force.
These are rights, granted to us by statute, enshrined by our common law and enforced by Human Rights legislation. This book explores those rights fully. It is a liberating book that informs us of what our rights are, and tells us what we can do as opposed to purely what we can't, which is consistent with the state of mind all human beings need to possess if they are to function responsively in a democratic society.
