Re: Munir Hussein
Having read the article, i can appreciate his mindset following this attack on both himself and his family. But was this self defence gone too far? Was the intention to stop and detain the robber(s)? Was reasonable force used?
As harrowing an ordeal it may have been, once free to help his family he enlisted the help of others to chase down and beat the intruder severely with various weapons, even once incapacitated.
This is way beyond reasonable force.
This level of response was not a man attempting to protect his family, but seeking out retribution,
and even if he had attacked the intruders inside the home, would the law have justified the level of his actions? Of course, the answer is NO.
Please do not mistake me, I am a firm believer in NECESSARY force, whatever it takes to protect yourself and your loved ones.
A moment of madness maybe, but definitely not Self Defence.
