Pretty sure our home invasion laws are shit. Hope the home owner doesn't get any time.

yeah they are,

I knew a kid that got home invaded.

He was stabbed twice and was able to defend himself by stabbing the offender once as well and got a 2 year good behaviour bond for it.

no logic in this....the guy will prolly get more time for defending his property which his worked hard to attain then the guy breaking in to steal it....

a real shame if the owner gets time...

Well the guy who broke in is dead, so he's already got more time than the burglar...

i can understand why the home owner gets charged
how easy would it be to invite someone over , kill them and then say " they were trying rob me , i needed to protect my property"

i thought there was always a case of "manslaughter/murder" if a criminal breaks in and dies. I recall a man barricading himself in his room with his disabled wife and the robbers kicked the door in so he shotgunned them. iirc he went to court for manslaughter.

Interesting case. From memory (going back to law school Criminal Law days..) provocation/self defence can be used only as a partial defence in NSW, so it's likely there's a manslaughter charge on the cards.

Well no charges have been layed at this stage.

Don 't believe all the media hype about it. I doubt the guy will get convicted of anything..
