Canada, where you aren't allowed to defend yourself
A man is charged with attempted murder and a raft of firearms offences after
helping fend off home invaders, one of whom he's now charged with shooting.
Kyle Earl Munroe was arrested on July 12 after RCMP and Halifax Regional
Police responded to a report of a home invasion involving firearms at a home
in Porters Lake.
Police said that three men entered the residence with guns and a struggle
took place with two men inside.
The two in the home seized a firearm from one of the suspects and several
shots were fired as the suspects fled. Police later located one of the
suspects, who had non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Munroe faces charges of attempted murder, intent to discharge a firearm,
intent to discharge a firearm when being reckless, careless use of a
firearm, improper storage of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a
weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a firearm,
possession of a firearm knowing that possession is unauthorized, and
possession for the purpose of trafficking.
"Right now they're just pending charges," said spokeswoman Chris Hansen at
the Public Prosecution Service.
Munroe is banned from any contact with two named individuals, must attend
court as ordered, keep the peace and be of good behaviour, not leave his
residence except for essential activities such as work or medical
appointments, remain in Nova Scotia, not consume drugs or alcohol, not
possess a cellphone or pager, have no weapons, and answer the door to police
when they check at his home.
Munroe is due back in Dartmouth Provincial Court on Aug. 22 for election and
