What sort of society praises vigilantes with cricket bats? - Catherine Bennett

What sort of columnist calls a man who, having been attacked in his own home by three masked, armed, dangerous men and seen them tie up his family, rob them and quite possibly prepare to kill them all, (she even admits herself that the 'burglars' didn't appear to be motivated by robbery) and then, in the heat of the moment, attacks one of the criminals - a VIGILANTE?

Answer: A dopey Guardian twat like Catherine Bennett.

And as one of the commenters pointed out: "The fact that the rest of the gang haven't even been nicked speaks volumes about policing in this country."  Yep, leave it to the police, old chap.
