Re: 83 year old aikido black belt repels home invader.
In Greece, the article's respective grandfather, would have found himself in handcuffs for defending himself, his loved ones and his property. He then would have to go on and defend himself against all sorts of ridiculous accusations of "wanting to harm the innocent intruder" and the sort. And still, even if thousands would gather outside the court shouting on his support, he would get a prison sentence that he would have to buy out in order to avoid the slammer.
Crappy laws and similar sh*t...
Thumbs up for his courage and persistence!
