Canadian Homeowner Stops Armed Robbery and Is Charged with Murder  

Five people physically confronted Ali Mian, 22, from Milton, Ontario, Canada, in his home. One or more of the intruders / attackers was armed. These five attackers invading Mian’s home were trying to rob him, according to the Toronto Star. Mian lives with his mother, who was being attacked by one of the intruders, who was armed.

As reported, “at approximately 5 a.m., the suspects went to the house with the intent to commit robbery, according to police. The group was confronted by Mian.” Multiple gunshots were fired inside the home. Mian has been “charged with second-degree murder after shooting one intruder, who was pronounced dead after being shot. One attacker was arrested, and the remaining three are still at large.”

According to Mian’s lawyer, Jag Virk, “The intruder had a gun and was attacking his mother.” As reported, Virk also told the outlet that Mian’s gun is legally registered and that he only fired it once without the intention to kill. After shooting the armed man, Mian allegedly called the police. Both Mian and the arrested intruder are awaiting trial.

The law of self-defense in Canada uniquely and nihilistically favors the aggressor. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau famously said in 2022 that citizens can’t use guns for “self-protection” in the country. Trudeau is quoted as stating: “We have a culture where the difference is, guns can be used for hunting or for sport-shooting in Canada, and there are lots of gun owners, and they’re mostly law-respecting and law abiding, but you can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada. That’s not a right that you have in the Constitution or anywhere else.”

Georgia law § 16-3-21 defines when the use of force in defense of self or others is legally permitted. The statute states, in part: (a) A person is justified in threatening or using force against another when and to the extent that he or she reasonably believes that such threat or force is necessary to defend himself or herself or a third person against such other’s imminent use of unlawful force.
