This recent case (Times) in the UK has re-ignited the arguement of how much force is reasonable force when it comes to protecting yourself and your property.
I'm aware that in some parts of the world you are well within your rights to kill an intruder but here in the UK the definition of self defence is unclear and confusing to the point people are afraid that if they attack an attacker they will be arrested and possibly jailed for injuring them.
