    Here's a prime example of what's wrong in Canada. Three armed men invade a man's home. They get disarmed and one of the criminals gets shot and one of the defenders is the one facing a plethora of charges. It's a sick society this poor man lives in. He's in more trouble than the criminals. As bad as we may have it here, in some places, it's still better than Canada.

    Somehow I get the impression this is not the whole story.

    Typically not good to fire on fleeing suspects, even in most US states this isn't okay. Can't tell the whole story from this though.

    Some of those possession charges should be bogus though.

    Isn't the issue that he shot at the suspects while they fled? In many cases if your life is supposedly no longer in danger, it's not self defense, and you become the aggressor.

    Canadian self-defense law ...
    Not all that different than U.S. law. You can kill someone if you reasonably fear for your life.

    Shooting people running from you tends to be a problem. Usually not a good idea.

    yeah, they are pending, some of them.. toss pasta on wall, see what sticks. that is what they do around here now when someone gets busted for a drugs charge while in a vehicle. they also throw in any driver's or vehicle status violations, unpaid parking tickets, having left a cereal bowl in sink when 12 years old... someone has to be getting some float on the money going in and out of the bail bondsman's coffers.

    they won't let the guy have a cellphone while he awaits further action on his case, wow. social media withdrawal. could make him dangerous w/o weapons.

    There's got to be way more to this story. How can someone be using a gun for the purpose of trafficking when they are just trying to defend themselves? They aren't saying "hey dude..nice gun...I'd like to sell it to someone". No..they are going to be worried about the home invasion and defending themselves.

    Something just doesn't add up here.

    The only time in America when one can shoot a fleeing individual, if you're a white cop shooting at an unarmed black man/woman . Just saying.
