    I do not believe that the facts are as stated. I think that they are being twisted to fit into a narrative that would cause outrage.

    You just don't have this "exaggeration of attempted manslaughter" in other civilized countries where... well, where people are sane.

    Do you mind if I ask you what gives you that impression? Just asking honestly.

    It does sound pretty hard to believe.

    Nothing new. Hasn't stuff like this happened in Britain and Australia? When the people get enough of it, they'll put a stop to it.

    I hope their politicians understand this. Perhaps they have a plan to flee to the U.S. when their citizens revolt. If so, I wish I could be one of the ones at our border to force them to go back. They made their bed, they can lie in it.

    Ummm, no. If a single news outlet posts a story and multiple outlets repeat that same information sourced to that one outlet does not mean it is corroborated.

    It must be independently confirmed, not simply regurgitated.

    It's not phaed I am doubting, but the reporting.

    There are many ways even here in the US that response to a home invasion could be excessive and land you in prison.

    The news story does not give enough facts to know what really happened. I think that is intentional to stir up emotion, and, more importantly, viewers.

    Good Lord you'd hope that story isn't even remotely correct. It does remind me about how Sanders and Obama said we need to be more like Scandinavian countries...

    Yes, one instance I can think of is executing a home invader when they are no longer a threat, that's illegal and murder

    Seems to me a home invader is no longer a threat only after they are executed.

    Yes. Especially when they keep coming back for more easy pickings.
