Well being in Ontario at the moment, I admit its a bit alarming. But in all fairness, they did not draw a firearm against him, so it could be argued from this standpoint he was out of line. And to further that, I would expect that initially charges would be have to laid against both parties until such time they appear in court....and here I GET OPTIMISTIC....the court will find in the Gentlemans favor once he has a chance to explain himself....unless he is beligerent towards the judge....then the outcome could be less favourable.
Seriously though, you kinda have to issue the charge, and then he is innocent until proven guilty.....this situation is should be scrutinized after the hearings....we may even have a chance to praise the legal system once this pans out....I will not count those chickens before they are hatched

In Ontario human life has priority consideration over material "stuff"; even if that stuff is your house.
It is not worth taking a human life, even if its the life of a scumbag, to protect inanimate objects.
I agree with that way of looking at things.
