it's true, one can tranquilize them and paint pictures on their face until the overworked, busy and cautious policemen arrive. There are some problems with that however. You might get into trouble forcibly drugging someone with an opiate, or maybe even possession of controlled substances without a license.

In some places however, marauding firebombers are dealt with... without ever calling the police.

If this society continues to deteriorate, I would suspect that good wholesome people who have always traditionally trusted on the system to provide justice will see the adverse affects of calling Johnny Law. I imagine that there will be many little spider webs catching all manner of bloodsuckers... when the system does not fulfill the need, the law of the least resistance begins to take hold....

what a world this is coming to, eh?

I would think there is more to this than they are telling at this point, it appears to be a planned assault on his home, perhaps drugs or something illegal. The "crown" is making sure this guys mess doesn't spill out into the streets where innocent people get hurt. I bet he's got the secret recipe for KFC in his safe.

This kind of thing happens ALL THE TIME and isn't reported. A relative of mine was recently in a jury trial where she was one of only two people who refused to punish someone for grabbing a weapon after their life was put into jeopardy, resulting in a hung jury. So, even juries sometimes wish to do this to people! Its disgusting and I don't know what they are thinking. If it were not the Free State Project I don't know what I'd do... I mean you could move out of the country but where would you go? Costa Rica would be my only idea, but I imagine they have their own problems there.

The idea that people are prosecuted for self-defense is one of the most ridiculous assaults on civilization itself I know about. I feel motivated to call that police department and tell them what I think about their police work... making sure the police chief & mayor know about it too.

It has once been said that all politics is local and it seems this police department has got the agenda from the elite's. They want to punish gun owner's and take away our right's. We need another great revival like the 1830's to take our country back. Time seems short as it was back then.
I'm using a phrase i have seen on other thread's but is too true. I rather die on my feet than live on my knees!

Exactly. Any other answer is wrong, and is not subject to partial credit!

killing another human over destruction of property, makes the homeowner WORSE than the criminal.

destruction of property = DEATH OF A HUMAN?

sorry on my scale they dont equal out. The odd thing is i'm PRO gun rights, i think guns are a equalizer and threat deturant, however running around killing criminals is insanity from a ethics and societal value perspective.

Why do i keep hearing Aussie's on here saying "we are not allowed guns here" that is plain BS,i own guns and I'm not a farmer,a shooting club member or a pro roo shooter,I'm a forklift driver who lives in Melbourne ,Self defence is not a "genuine reason" to own a gun thou,i don't understand why people think guns are banned here,,not having a go at you matey just trying to deny ignorance ,

As for this poor Canadian fellow,what a joke,these thugs intended to do him harm,why the hell people think he is in the wrong in beyond me,a lot of people are assuming his warning shot were fired into the air,warning shots can be fired into the ground cant they?
Two lowlifes broke into an elderly couples house in Perth a few years ago,he locked himself and his wife in their bedroom and called the police,he warned the scum he was armed and they still kicked in the door,he shot one and the other beat him up ,outcome the 2 scum bags went to jail and old mate wasn't charged, but i bet the anti gun lobby has a problem with an old man defending himself and his wife,

Wow I don't even need to explain this again. I said, I'm not bashing Canada, but rather his remarks about blood thirsty gun owners(All this man did was defend himself by firing a few warning shots, BIG WHOOP.). I say a lot of Americans own gun for protection from their tyrannical government. While Canada on the other hand, does not need to be afraid of their government bashing down their doors and taking their family. JEEZ

A fine/charge would've been alright, just in case others won't start shooting upwards with shotguns evevrytime a suspicious looking guy walks past their yard and someday accidentally shoot at an innocent victim. A prison sentence would've been in place had he opened a machine gun fire and annihilated the muglers to pieces.

Dude you commented and said, "here in canada we dont need guns we bash them with our fists." something along those lines, I'm not going to look as its a waste of time. We are obviously misunderstanding each other. So I'm going to end this before you confuse the hell out of me. Enjoy Canada.

I just want to clarify real quick.

My point: Men in masks are attacking my home, family, and animals with fire bombs. I don't care if I'm in Canada, US, or Timbuktu. I will shoot to kill, not wound or warn. I'm not going to wait for my house to burn down while the cops come. I will not wait for them to physically attack me, if you are trespassing with intent to steal, harm, or stalk... You will be dealt with if deemed fit. These did not look like friendly neighborhood kids having fun. Get my point? What would you do? Stand there? hide? ask to leave?

You obviously have never fired a weapon, therefor unable to speak about the subject. Some guy walks past his yard and gets shot accidentally, how does that happen? He had what looks to be a few acres, in this case it's impossible to shoot an innocent bystander. You are absolutely ludicrous. These were not just suspicious guys walking past his yard you nitwit. They're attempting to burn his house down. Did you here the masked individuals saying he is gunna F%&#ing die? Please, get real.... Maybe those criminals shouldn't have been there???

This was an ongoing dispute with his neighbor and regardless of the situation...pulling a gun was a bad call on his part.
There is warranted force and unwarranted force....pulling a gun was not the right decision in my opinion.
We aren't Americans...our laws are different for a reason...if the first thing this guy thought of was to pull a gun then I am glad they have been taken away.

No offence to our gun toting American friends.

Someone is trying to burn your house down (and burn your dog) and this isnt something that warrants deadly force? These SOB's would be morgue bound had this been tried anywhere near me!

If it had been one person, you MIGHT have chance to kick the hell out of them (provided they didnt nail you with a coctail).

Molotovs are a deadly weapon.

With all due respect, I somehow dont think most Cannuks would agree with your stance.

You know, I don't have a wife and children yet as I'm young, but you don't need a wife and children to know what the man has done. Let's say someone comes to your house and starts throwing cocktail molotov's at your house, endangering your family's life and your own. Would you SERIOUSLY dial 9-1-1 and be on the phone with them while they SEND help?

Me I wouldn't. And don't reply with some non-sense about he's not supposed to fire bullets at people bla bla bla, screw it! if someone has the balls to hurt my family and ESPECIALLY my dog (I'm a dog lover) I would without hesitation shoot at them with the intentions of killing them. Yes I would, just because their intentions were to hurt me, I would do the job they couldn't have finished.

NOW, we don't know both of the sides of course. Maybe the ''innocent'' man did something to them. (like my dad said, he probably owed money to someone and resulted in this) The guy has security cameras around his house, which means he has something to protect or something precious but we aren't placed to judge anyone.

I'm just so frustrated at the global system. (And don't think that i'll become the next Jared Lee Loughner -_-, I'm fully aware of what i say lol so no worries) Anyways i don't know what else to say about this. It's frustrating reading this.

He should have known better.

If he wanted to live in a place where he actually had the right to defend his property, he should have moved to Texas.

Clearly he deserves to be arrested, fined, and imprisoned for at least 20 years at tax payer expense.

Errr... did you actually made researches on WHY such a "quiet, lonely" guy was attacked by a bunch of people WITH MOLOTOVS? They were not thieves with knives or guns... they made a firebomb attack. The article from the National Post refuses to talk about that.

“I don’t have enemies,” said the soft-spoken man, who now studies environmental geosciences full-time at Brock University after being injured in a workplace accident. “I don’t know that many people. I’m a quiet man. I just want to go back to my life and be able to live out my days in relative peace.”

Mr. Thomson’s is the latest in a series of high-profile cases in which people have been charged after defending their homes and businesses against criminals. Central Alberta farmer Brian Knight became a local hero after shooting a thief who was trying to steal his ATV. He pleaded guilty to criminal negligence earlier this month. In October, Toronto shopkeeper David Chen was acquitted of forcible confinement charges after he tied up a repeat shoplifter and demanded he stop raiding his grocery store.

Really, this article is a load of fudge. A hero for shooting a guy just because.... he's been trying to steal an All-Terrain Vehicle? Sequestrating a shoplifter??? That's not heroism or even legitimate self-defense.... this is overkill "justice" gone really wrong!

Nobody is allowed to shoot and KILL people out of simple matters of shoplifting, destruction of property or stealing stupid ATVs... This is murder. This is using petty crimes (and shoplifting's not even a crime!) to defend even more terrible crimes.

see this is why some people think canadians r dum as dog sh#t because if some guy was at home and got attacked by some nuckle heads with molotovs it would be natural to try to match their strength in hope of scaring them off...thats what i would do...dirty dog cops should have their balls cut off those little B#tchs..
