Australian Dad Charged With Murder for Self-Defense: “Rapist Found Near Daughter’s Room”

It’s every family’s worst nightmare, and it’s the reason to have self defense tools and preparations in your home.

But many governments around the world don’t hold the same basic protections for home defense that the United States does in most states (and clearly, there are forces at work to undermine that as well).

This father was charged with murder in Australia for fighting and killing a rapist who was entering their home in attempted robbery… and found close to his daughter’s room. Ask yourself, would you do any differently?

via the International Business Times:

A young dad in Australia has been charged with murder after he confronted a burglar inside his home. Father Benjamin Batterham, 33, discovered convicted rapist Ricky Slater, 34, near his daughter’s room inside their family home in Newcastle, New South Wales, at 3.30am.

With a 32-year-old friend, Batterham confronted Slater and the resulting skirmish sent Slater to hospital where he later died of his injuries, believed to include brain damage.

Batterham also suffered facial injuries and bite marks to his body and some reports say he had to be tested for HIV. Reports that Slater suffered a broken neck have been ruled out. After Slater was taken off life support Batterham handed himself in at a police station and was charged with murder.

The details of the incident are no doubt importance, but in essence, Batterham has lost his liberty on charges of murder for defending his family inside his home.

Australian law is crazy – apparently there is no right to self-defense?

Well, typically of laws, it is a bit vague, but killing an assailant in self-defense is only a partial justification in the eyes of the law, where excessive force considerations will still hold the man accountable to murder. In the case of Benjamin Batterham, it seems ridiculous.

That’s why more than 100,000 people have petitioned for his release:

Now an appeal on the apprentice chef’s behalf has attracted over 110,000 signatures (as of 6 April). However, a planned protest march on behalf of Batterhamwas called off when a teenager organising the protest said he was threatened by members of the Slater family.

But the family of rapist Ricky Slater have torn down signs and intimidated supporters out of holding a rally:

“So we ripped them off the poles and then my son-in-law saw this young bloke putting up more banners and just said ‘that’s not right’ and ‘can you give me the rest of them, sorry'” said Dickson. “He never assaulted him or anything. We’re just upset that they were going up. People have been saying so much about Ricky, it’s very painful for our family.”

Newcastle police are investigating the incident. The case has divided opinion across Australia, with most appearing to support the actions of Batterham.

So not only has the concept of self-defense been turned on its head, but the powers that be are again sowing division between racial groups in a case that is reminiscent of Trayvon Martin, and likely to split communities and debates along ideological lines.

But if you can’t defend yourself, you also can’t be free.

    A prime example of Progressive-ism.These Progs never stop progreSSing. So now you can’t even defend yourself and your home in the middle of the night from an intruder because you used “excessive” force.
    Australia is the future these Progs have planned for the USA.
    Hilarity likes their gun laws in Australia too, so don’t ASSume “it can never happen here.”

      Shoot, shovel and shut up .
      They should have never called the cops .

    • FreeSlave says:

      Liberalism is said to be a mental disorder. Here’s another example:

      Male Norwegian politician raped by asylum seeker says he feels GUILTY that his attacker will now be deported because the man might suffer back in Somalia

      “A Norwegian politician has spoken of how how he felt guilty that the Somali asylum seeker who raped him was deported.

      Karsten Nordal Hauken, from Ås, Akershus, was raped in his home and the perpetrator was subsequently caught and jailed for 4.5 years.

      However, when Nordal Hauken found out that the man was to be deported back to Somalia after serving his time, he reveals he felt guilt that the man would possibly face hardship in his old country.

      Nordal Hauken, who describes himself as a ‘young Socialist Left Party member, feminist and anti-racist’, was attacked in his own home.

      The politician reveals that he struggled to come to terms with being a heterosexual male rape victim, and subsequently self-medicated with alcohol and cannabis.

      ‘I am a heterosexual man who was raped by a Somalian asylum seeker,’ Nordal Hauken writes for NRK.

      ‘My life fell into ruin, but now I feel guilty about him being sent out of the country.’

      He reveals how he was called up by the prison shortly before the perpetrator was to be deported to Somalia, having served 4.5 years in prison for the rape.

      ‘I felt relief and happiness that he would be gone forever. I felt like the Norwegian State had taken responsibility to carry out the ultimate revenge, like an angry father confronting it’s child’s attacker.

      ‘But I also had a strong feeling of guilt and responsibility. I was the reason that he would not be in Norway anymore, but rather sent to a dark uncertain future in Somalia

      He adds: I see him mostly like a product of an unfair world, a product of an upbringing marked by war and despair.”

      From the UK Daily Mail.

      GenEarly, let these ‘progressives’ [HOW I HATE THAT WORD] come f#$% with me over an act of self-defense and they will definitely make ‘progress’ in going into the dirt nap.

    • lmorris says:

      after you kill the prick dont call the cops put him in your thuck or car go to woods or what ever burn it

    • buggymak110 says:

      Same shit here in canada !!!!! You can’t even beat the hell of a burglar in your house even with a broom. …… attempting murder will be filed against you !!!!! This is how stupid governments are…… GUNS SAVES LIVES……

      Someday one government officials will have a home invasion and I hope this event will be an eye opening experience…… better have a gun in my hand than a police at the phone…. my house is my castle so come unwelcome you might have some lead in your diet !!!!!!

    • Storm says:

      I would LOVE to go there an organize that protest. An hope the slater family.. If you can call them that tries to intimidate us. Just saying.

  2. Rorinon says:

    Batterham was charged because he followed the fleeing Slater out into the street, where he and another man proceeded to beat slater into the unconsciousness. If Batterham has stopped when Slater fled his home instead of chasing him into the street, he supposedly wouldn’t have been charged.

    I don’t agree with Batterham being charged at all, but that beating after Slater fled the home was no longer considered self defense or defense of Batterham’s family in the eyes of the law.

    • DevilMayCry says:

      The police, beign largely incompetent, may well not have caught the perp if the father had chose to call them instead of persue the intruder.

      And the man had already invaded the fathers home once, there was no guarantee he would not return.

      The only acceptable course of action was murder.
      Despite being a poet, I don’t candy coat problems. That POS had to die. By the fathers hands, by the police, or by another inmate.

      Justice from the barrel of a gun. Or from a headlock, or a long ass knife.

      I’ve come to one conclusion. Morality is not relative, and the world is full of hypocrites and monsters. You either become a monster, or you get eaten by one (the state).

    • Rorinon says:

      I said I did not agree with it. Just explaining how “the law” down there is charging him with a crime. Unfortunately the same thing would happen to any of us in the US if we followed the rapist outside to continue his well-deserved beating.

  3. Jacknife says:

    It would be a real shame if the criminal to broke into that man’s house conveniently disappeared.

  4. Sgt. Dale says:

    Very well put.
    Can’t add anything to it. Again Well Done!!!

  5. PretzelLogix says:

    Who called the cops?
    Damned fool. Problem was already solved!

  6. Shouldn’t have called “authorities”. Rapist near your child’s room, should be killed and body fed to pigs, or what have you. Just get rid of the body. No body, no problem. All is fair in love and war. And this, my friends, is war. First a psychological war that makes people feel bad for killing an intruder rapist lurching near your precious child, then a war against your liberty that would put a decent father behind bars for defending his child. It is not insanity. It is planned. It is war.

  7. Infidel-2 says:

    World going to hell in a hand basket.

    Kiss My Country ASS!!!

  8. Really??? says:

    WTF?? I mean really, WTF?

  9. logicrazy says:

    Just choot em….

  10. This world is finished..

    On a more serious note, I believe that arresting men who defend women from rape is conditioning to accept mass rapes once the war starts in America..it depends on the state.. here is Houston, if a man defends his wife or daughter, your not lickely to go to jail. I have experienced the worst since that happened to my ex girlfriend… not a laughing matter at all.. you would not want to be in my shoes and experienced what I have experience after I saw what happened to my ex..
    I hope something like that never happens again because if soldiers are in my area looking for girls and women, they will pay a heavy price.. I have heard some really bad bad horrific stories that I have mentioned in this site, that I don’t want to get into..I feel bad for the women knowing what’s coming up in the near future for America..

    Go ahead. Make my day. Break into my house and you will come face-to-face with Mr. Moss, my pump shotgun. Click, click.

    • Braveheart1776 says:

      Philo, BRAVO! I’m the same way. We all have a God-given natural right to self-defense. I don’t even follow any restrictions on self-defense. Anyone who interferes with my efforts at self-defense will face consequences. Bank on it.

      • Philosopher says:

        BH: I hear ya! It isn’t my only weapon but even in the dark that pump action sound is enough to make any moron run. If they are too stupid too run? oh well the next sound they hear will be the sound of themselves screaming.

        • anon says:

          One in the chamber with the safety on.

          Not giving my position away to nobody by racking a round. Intruder in the house? No warnings for I believe you are there to kill me.

        • Braveheart1776 says:

          Philo. I do have other ‘liberty tools’ at my disposal. Racking the slide on a pump usually stops trouble before it can start. I mounted a tac light on my 590A1 which gives me the extra advantage of blinding an intruder.

  12. PA farmer says:

    Shoot, shovel, and shutup..

  13. rellik says:

    I have read a lot and somewhere I remember, I think it was the crusades, where the criminal was forced to eat his own penis whole. The criminal was then nailed to a pole beside the road and his belly cut open to show all he ate his own “junk”. He was left to die and rot.
    My modern twist would be to use a framing nailer to nail a sign
    “This was a rapist” to his chest( missing the heart of course).

    As for the Aussies and their fucked up laws, That is their choice.
    I would follow my #1 rule: never volunteer to talk to the police.
    Always ask “Am I being detained, am I free to go”?
    Never answer questions. Never lie. Be polite. Comply with
    their demands. Never trust them.

    • Philosopher says:

      R: jeez wasn’t that an episode of Game of Thrones? Let me guess it was a Muslim punishment for the kuffars.

      For folks that wonder about Bergdahl I reached the conclusion that he was used as a butt-buddy and probably also ended up a eunuch. What is a eunuch? A castrated Human male. Sort of like the difference between a stallion and a gelding. The stallion is intact and the gelding? not so much. Same diff between a bull and a steer. Bull is intact, the steer has had its parts fried up and cooked for dinner.

  14. Kevin2 says:

    Its a shame that Australia is like that and their gun laws too much to deal with because they do have some damn fine geography. They speak English too, its easier than the British to understand.

  15. Plan twice, prep once says:

    This guy did the right thing. Better to have his wife and daughter visit him in prison than to be free and have to visit your wife or daughters graves.

  16. Ketchupondemand says:

    Off topic, but will still piss you off:
    Newsmax HAD this as a headline story a couple hours ago, now it’s down the page..:

    “President Barack Obama says he has the power to allow illegal immigrants to be eligible for federal benefits through the guise of “prosecutorial discretion,” and that he will not enforce the law against them for being in the country, CNS News Editor-in-Chief Terence Jeffrey says in an editorial.”

    Apparently the traitor in chief will have his stooges argue the case before the Supreme Court.
    But he’ll just write an executive order if he doesn’t win..

    To count the ways we have lost our country…

    • Ketchup:
      The point is not proving that we have been betrayed into the hands of enemies who glory in our demise, that point has been proven. The point now is let’s find ways to fight and win against the foreign influence that controls Government, the media, publishing, the Internet, and the financial system that holds it all together. Defeat the financiers of misery, the rest will fall like dominoes.

    • Philosopher says:

      KOD: seeing that on FOX news just now. How the hell do you show up to the USSA and magically “qualify” for full benefits even if you have never worked here?

      This is the reason Europe is going up in flames. The pussy-in-chief hates this country. He doesn’t give a crap about the US. Zero. He thinks he is going to save the world by crashing and destroying the US.


  17. Hydrated lime is sold in 50 lb. sacks by most home improvement stores. It’s used – among other things – to keep mortar mix pliable.

    They also sell shovels, which can be used – among other things – to move mortar around the job site.

    They also sell plastic sheeting, which can be used – among other things – to cover concrete, to prevent it from drying out too fast.

    I wonder what sort of home improvement stores they have in Australia?

  18. wojo says:

    Think I will go out and buy another gun this weekend, and some fricken ammo.

  19. molonlabe says:

    It sounds like to me that the family of the rapist should be disappeared. I am sick of hearing about these family’s that defend their criminal relation. This guy was a convicted rapist that had broken into a home to (sarcasm on) borrow a cup of sugar (sarcasm off). I regard myself as a Christian person who believes in forgiveness, but there are times when we should expedite the deliverance of some people to be judged.

  20. Mo:
    No! Don’t waste energy focused on the wrong target.

  22. overthecliff says:

    Do not ever volunteer information to the police. They are not your friend. They get points for arrests and convictions.

  23. Dave says:

    This is why you bury the FOCK’rs in the back 40 along with all the dogs, cats, horses etc. Garden grows great and nobody seems to know why.

  24. Gary says:

    If you can beat the perpetrator into submission to stop him, then do just that. If you continue beyond necessary force, then yes you are a murderer.

    Once sujugated, I recommend using duct tie straps with a hand tighter hand tool for extra security.

    Yes there are te when we have to act fast, but if you remain alert 24 – 7 and are prepared, then there is no reason to kill.

    Let God handle the end of someone’s life you just keep them from harming others, you, and themselves.

  25. Prime Ministers, Members of Parliament, Presidents, Congressmen, Senators, and the local mayor all have armed protection details who will shoot to kill, if the politician is PERCIEVED to be in danger.
    The privileged political class has the luxury of living in gated communities, in secure homes, guarded by their protection details, but ordinary citizens are hypocritically DENIED the right to protect themselves and their families.
    Stand up Australia, protest, refuse to pay your taxes, and vote out/impeach any politician who dares to deny you the same rights and privileges that they enjoy.

  26. Shirley Rodriguez says:

    The father should receive a medal of valor and outstanding citizen award.

    However, what we get is some fuckhead communist parasite politicians who want to turn the criminals into victims and real victims into criminals.

    criminals and communists are cut from the same mold

  27. A fine lady I once knew relocated to Australia many many moons ago. She gave up her US citizenship and became an Australian. She was so hot I still remember her to this day.

    Anyway, Kathy M., all these years later, such a strong pacifist, how do you like living there now? Can’t defend your castle from a home invader INSIDE your own four walls???

    I know, I know; you said you’d let them pillage and ravage you instead of defending yourself.

    Such a brainwashed Shela.
