Father-of-three Peter Drummond was so angry when he discovered someone had sold heroin to his family that he took matters into his own hands.Perhaps if he claimed he was following sharia law, they'd have let him off with a slap on the wrist out of cultural sensitivity.
He confronted John Nellies in his home and flushed five of the drug dealer's bags of heroin down the toilet.
But yesterday it was Drummond - not Nellies - who found himself being jailed in court.

EDITED TO ADD:
Les Jones makes a valid point in comments:
Tam, aren't you in favor of legalized drugs? If so, then why would you be in favor of beating up a guy who is just providing what the market wants?
Also, just to keep things in perspective the guy who is going to jail broke into the other guy's house and beat him up. Are we OK with going into people's houses and beating them up? I don't think expecting people to be secure in their homes and their physical safety from a drunken idiot is "PC".
Yeah, the guy's a drug dealer and I wouldn't want him around my family. But having had a sister who killed herself with drugs over the course of 15 years I can say that no one was "pushing" drugs to her. She was going out to find them all on her own. Beating up one of her rotating assortment of crack dealers wouldn't have solved her problems.
That's another problem with the Wo(S)D: Does being against Prohibition mean you have to cheer for Al Capone?
