This was done in Canada and we have different gun laws.
I have found someone in my home once and laid a whooping on him without charges.
I agree with the authorities on this one...take his guns away.
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.edit on 24-1-2011 by DrumsRfun because: (no reason given)

Dude, Cananda needs real cops and/or guns. As dangerous as America seems to be, it is infinitely preferable to that type of fiasco. See in America the crazy machette wielding bad guy gets arrested.
Despite what you see in movies most bank robberies in America involve a note and not a gun.
In fairness the guy was drunk, hopefully I won't get in trouble for this but I over heard him telling the wife that he needed to take out the money to pay for the kids sports camp and his wife was going to be mad if she found out he had spent it all on booze. He didn't even try to use the machete to get the door open (thankfully as he would likely have hurt himself) most of the stuff he yelled why banging was along the lines of "I got my knife, open up".
Definately not the brightest criminal out there. In the interest of being honest the reason the corporal felt the guy would be able to plea it down and not goto jail was because of his race. The cop said it was typical behaviour for that ethnic group and that generally the judges just gave them slaps on the wrist. I disagree because I have friends of that group and never once have I seen them get drunk and try to rob a bank. I figure it was just an excuse because he didn't want to do the paperwork. This is the same corporal who yelled at my wife for handing funny money over to the RCMP that someone tried to pass at the bank. He was mad and asked her if she realized how much paperwork she was causing the officers of the detachement to do with counterfit currency she was bringing them. It was like 6 or 7 bills in a one month period.

they charged two people with arson in this case and claimed they knew he was inside the house that's usually called attempted murder, they deliberately it seems refrained from using that term to pursue criminal charges against the homeowner.
