A FUGITIVE from police picked the wrong place to hide on the Gold Coast when he come off second best against a Varsity Lakes resident and his son.I tend to agree with the gentleman who stopped the wanted man.

He was bashed, slashed with a knife and held down until police arrived.
"This is my castle," a pumped Mr Edwards said. "When you've got some drug-crazed idiot standing in your bloody house, lots of things can go bad, so you're fighting for your life."
Mr Edwards dismissed suggestions he was a hero, saying the man "wasn't much of a fighter". He said he had simply dispensed "neighbourhood justice".read more here.

A lot of talk on the radio thismorning regarding self defence, defence of property and reasonable force.
