I think we'd all hope to treat home invaders like this: http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/gatecrashers-flee-whipwielding-dad/2008/08/16/1218307309535.html "The gang split into two groups and entered the house at the front and side, kicking a screen door off its hinges in the process. Mr Driman, the only adult at his son's party, confronted the ringleader as he came around the side of the house. "As I tackled him, six of them came over the top of me. I received a big hit to the side of my head," said Mr Driman. "It happened really quickly." His son Brennan said: "There were six or seven really big, buff guys on top of my dad, hitting him. I had to try and pull him out." As he got clear Mr Driman started using the sjambok - a 1.5metre plastic whip like the traditional rhino hide whips used by South African herdsmen" Moral of the story - Never pi55 off a Japie with a sjambok.
