The storeowner is being brought up on charges of excess aggression with a possible prison sentence. Both Denmark and Sweden have laws that say, yes, you have the right to defend your property and life against an intruder, but you must use just the right amount of aggression, not more than the situation calls for.
?‼?? #Sweden: robbery in a shop. The shopkeeper is threatened with a knife, he picks up a crowbar, and makes the robbers harmless. Now Lars Alring, 59, is suspected of gross assault and is in danger of imprisonment! The world of idiots! https://t.co/9D01pgsGhT pic.twitter.com/Mv4hDjjmd1
