What Would You Do? It's not something anyone wants to think about even though we all should. What would you do if someone broke into your home in the middle of the night? How would you protect your family and property? When a burglar, armed and high on drugs, crept into his baby's bedroom, Ben Batterham saw red and gave chase. He pursued the intruder out of his house and down the street. There was a violent struggle as Ben attempted a citizen's arrest. Moments later the burglar suffered a heart attack and died. Ben Batterham found himself arrested and charged with murder - so who's the victim and who's the criminal now? Dirty Dealing The figures are staggering. According to the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, last year Australians spent eight and a half billion dollars buying more than 11 tonnes of methamphetamine. Ice, as it's more commonly known, is a dangerous and deadly blight on our country, but it's a hell of a high for the manufacturers and traffickers who profit from it.

On assignment for 60 Minutes, Chris Uhlmann has spent months tracking the ice supply chain and the crooks who've become billionaires plying this evil trade.

Even the World Health Organization forecasts a world of pain. It says the virus poses a greater global threat than terrorism. That's bad enough, but medical experts tell 60 Minutes it's actually even more terrifying.
