Fleeing Aussie burglar shot in arse with bow and arrow

Meanwhile in the UK

The shooter would have been arrested for Assault/GBH. After all he was fleeing so he no longer posed a threat and therefore, according to our courts, you cannot claim proportionate self defence.

Personally I would have notched another arrow.
