June 14. Friday. My girlfriend and I were having good sleep together upstair. Then I heard something broke downstair, I woke up immediately. First I looked at the clock and it was only 3:30 AM. I thought it was my cat Edel dropped a vase or something, but then I heard footsteps echoed. What scared me that it was multiple footsteps walking. So on one hand I quickly grabbed my girlfriend's iron hairsprayer while the other I grabbed my t-shirt and quietly headed downstair.
All thanked to the bright streetlights shined in our living room that I saw these 2 guys which were opening all shelves. One of them were holding something that looked like somekind of shiv. I gently moved down and slowly sneaked behind the shiv-holding guy. He turned around and swung the shiv at me. I got a cut on chest, but then I covered the guy's head with the t-shirt, then struck the pointy part of the hairsprayer to his temple, twice. He dropped the shiv and felt down like a heavy bag. The other guy saw me and tried to throw a punch. Thanked to my past time military training, I tripped him while striking the hairsprayer to his forehead. I moved behind him and struck several times on head's back, neck, temple and finally one hard strike to the throat. He dropped down with no movement.
I woke my girlfriend, tried to calm her panics, grabbed the cellphone to dial 911. Cops arrived in less than 10 minutes (a miracle!). So the 2 cops walked in with their weapons on, told me to turn on the room's light. Once light was on, I immediately got goosebumps on my whole body. The 2 robbers weren't just being unconscious, one of the guy's head was bleeding. Right away, a cop checked their pulses on necks while another asked me what weapon did I use. I was still holding that hairsprayer, it has some blood on it... The 2 cops whispered to each other something then asked us about our identifications. Cops took photos around, collected the shiv and the hairsprayer; took our fingerprints. Then an ambulance vehicle arrived, paramedics moved in with their equipments and quickly moved the 2 'sandbags' on the ambulance vehicle.
Cops asked me to go with them. I cooperated and sit in the back of their police car. They drove to police station. I immediately got moved to a room with some cop. Then I didn't know how long was it, because literally a lot of questions were asked. I told them everything, including how I fucked those robbers, exactly what I wrote on here. Then we moved to another room and asked me to sign some paper, I did what they asked. Next thing I knew was I sitting in the jail, next to all kind of throat-cutting jerks. I did get some cup of water, but no food. God knew how long I was in there. I sit, walked, slept, took dumps then repeat. Then some cop came, took me out to the same room I first arrived, and we talked. He told me I was . I was close to being arrested. No charge was laid on me. But the cop repeated several times that I was lucky. He also told me that the robbers were recovering in hospital, but none about their crime situation.
So... why I was only detained...
- What I did on self-defence was reasonable and within Bill C-26's Section 34, 35 & 36.
- Attackers carried weapon, and did attacked me first with it.
- Attacker harmed me. Although it was very minor.
- The weapon I use was unconventional. The police did examine the hairsprayer, and it has no sharp part. Lucky, indeed.
- I defend my property on reasonable ground.
However, later I learned that the shiv-holding guy was arrested, while the other robber walked free. What the fuck, I told myself so. The cut on my chest is still hurting, but it hurts me more when criminal walks free. I'm very glad only a small newspaper talked about this incident. It sunk into the silence on next day.
What if I struck these 2 assholes harder? What if the hairsprayer had sharp parts? What if they had no weapon? I would be arrested, or ever lay charge with 2nd degree murder and get locked up at least 10 years.
Or. What if they had something longer than a shiv? What if they had gun or projectile weapons? What if I had nothing to defend myself? I wouldn't sit here in the living room and typing out this post. I would be at least in comma, or even dead, right now.
