England: Success! Kylo the Hero Dog Gets to Come Home

[care2.com – 5/30/19]

Last summer, a mob of 20 angry men showed up at the residence of a young couple in Bristol, U.K. The men believed that this was the home of a registered sex offender, and they refused to leave even when the couple explained that the person they were seeking no longer lived there.

The group didn’t believe the young couple and began attacking them. That’s when their five-year-old dog Kylo, a Staffy Cross Labrador, jumped into action and ran off 15 of the men.

But the remaining five men beat up the 25-year-old male resident, leaving him with severe bruising, a broken nose, two black eyes and a fractured rib. They also kicked and spat at the 24-year-old woman.

This attack was the worst incident in a series of assaults the couple had endured, from people banging on their door and running off to people throwing things at their windows.

Kylo saved the lives of his owners, but when the police arrived, the dog was so perturbed and riled up by all the confusion that he chased and bit two of the police officers in the continuing attempt to protect his owners.

    Clearly, they need to improve their Registries so people know who to attack. Perhaps they should require signs on the homes of the real targets so that innocent people are not attacked.

    Countries that have public Registries are backwards cesspools. They are not evolved, first world countries.

      Will Allen — Innocent people? Real targets? Most Registrants have paid their price to society and are therefore innocent. Unless you believe that unregistered people have never committed any crime that warrants being registered. I doubt there are any of those., or very very few.

      Registries are in place for those who wish to inflict harm on innocent people and somehow feel good about it, or for those who seek political gain from those who are naive or themselves evil.
      No one has ever been protected by a registry.

      • Will Allen

        You haven’t read many of my comments, have you? The first paragraph of the comment to which you replied was sarcastic.

        Personally, I think all people who are informed and still support Registries deserve a bullet between the eyes. That’s not sarcastic.

        • JM from wi

          Will, tell us how you really feel.

    The pertinent story that started all of this is HERE: https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/mans-ribs-broken-20-men-1639043

    If the UK had the Internet registry there would be a 40% mortality rate among registrants.

    Here is an excerpt that particularly riled me:

    “Having only lived in the property for four months, the pair have made a request to the council to move – something they claim has been supported by the police who believe it is ‘dangerous’ for them to remain there – and they have been added to the Landlord Agreed Transfer (LAT) list.”

    Chilling indeed.

    As heart wrenching as this story is….Hopefully, the backlash will not be, as it has been in places in the US, (without a Janice to fight for them), which is the landlords in England will not rent to those on their registry and therefore add to the homeless population and the hardship of registrant families.

  4. Dustin

    Sadly, only one comment in the original article on this situation recognized that the registry encourages vigilantes. I would have pointed out that this particular instance would not have occurred if there were no registry in the first place, but the article was a year old and likely wouldn’t have reached anyone. Didn’t see much point in commenting (even if comments could be posted) or in contacting the reporter – she’s a nature lover and only writes animal feel-good stories in a like-minded publication. Not a bad article to cite when discussing the registry’s adverse effects, though.

  5. Jon

    Wouldn’t it be grate if someone proficient with computers were to hack the registry. And swap out the real address for the addresses of all of these hateful politicians. So they can taste the wrath they are subjecting undeserving people to. That would be poetic justice.

    • Notorious D.I.K. / Kennerly

      Jon, I’m with you on this. If only we knew someone proficient with computers…

      Ahem.

  6. Billy Jack

    Please read into the sarcasm before replying. I got Will’s comment from the start, was easy for me to get it.

    Anyway, the little red dot for me is not on my registered address, it’s down the street 2 blocks and on the other side of the street. Surly these people that live there are unaware and at risk of taking any beating that would be intended for me.

    Registries need to be abolished! Period.

    • Will Allen

      Yikes! Those people under the red dot should move. Because the vast majority of “people” who support the Registries are too stupid and lazy to know or care that red dot is not on YOUR house. Maybe they’ll attack everyone around it? Vigilantes are usually not so bright.
