First of all, the spelling in that post was awful. Secondly, it depends where you live. In my home state, provided there is any kind of reasonable threat to your life, you have the right to kill anybody to defend yourself and your property. It isn't just some British thing, it is in America too. It is probably in your state as well (it is in most all states) you just are misinformed. The only real case where a criminal can sue for damages to you is if he drowns or nearly drowns in your swimming pool, because it is your liability and you had no proof he was a danger whenever he started drowning.
