    The home owner made one major mistake in that he didn't kill the intruder, because dead men don't sue, and unfortunately the law is setup to protect criminals from people who defend themselves. But it starts off in school because a bully can pick on a kid for weeks or months and the school dose nothing, but when the kid gets tired of it and pops the bully he is the one who gets in trouble and then ends up having to apologize to the bully.
