    one guy broke in to a house and stole a video-player, he got it home, plugged it in and got electrocuted. he sued and got conpensation from the people he stle it from!! lol-true story!
    Wouldn't that be similar to a person who got arrested for trying to file a complaint because his usual "dealer" was cutting his cocaine with too much other stuff?

    Also, wouldn't he be better off complaining to the makers of the player?

    In all honesty, in the US you would be better of killing the intruder if he/she was actually in your home. If you simply injured the person, or somehow the person injured theirself escaping, you`d be held responsible for not providing easy escape to the criminal. Whereas if they lay dead on your floor, dead men dont file law suits, and can be dismissed as self defense. Just make sure they are physically IN your house before you introduce them to your little friend.
