“29-year-old Renault service adviser Mark Sinclair had been out for a beer with a friend on Wednesday,” dailyrecord.co.uk reports. “After stopping for a spicy chicken pizza, he was 100 yards from his home in Stenhousemuir when he was attacked at 11.10pm. ‘He said, ‘Gimme a bit of your pizza’, then started laying into me . . .
He has been left with nerve damage in the back of an eye and can’t remove a contact lens. As well as several severe bruises, ligaments in his knee were also torn.”
Sinclair posted the above image to his Facebook account in hopes of inspiring someone to turn in his attacker or — like this is ever going to happen — get the attacker to turn himself in.
Of self-defense, this article makes no mention. Of armed self-defense? The UK media hasn’t suggested or reported that possibility since the Victorians covered up chair legs (for modesty’s sake). And then probably only for aristos. Seriously, this was one of the reasons we broke away from England’s tyrannical grasp. Never forget it.
