    This is one of the most absurd stories about doing the right thing YET being punished for it.

    "A homeowner in Finland has been sentenced to four years in jail and a hefty fine after fighting off three intruders who attempted to rob his house. The thieves, meanwhile, got lesser prison terms and are to be paid damages by their victim.

    In April, a 35-year-old man from Hyvinkää, a town just 50km north of the Finnish capital, Helsinki,
    heard a knock on the front door of his suburban house and rushed to open it. As soon as he unlocked it, three strangers rushed in and launched at him, toting baseball bats and a gun. The man retreated to the kitchen, where he found a knife and with it was able to overpower the intruders, two men and one woman.One man armed only with a knife fought off three armed robbers with a gun."

    They'll all probably be in the same culinary class or all be on the same swim team in prison.

    He shouldn't be in jail, he should become the President of Finland.

    If I was a criminal, Finland sounds like a great place to do business.

    How did the people from that region go from Vikings to a bunch of "happy-go-lucky" passive cucks?

    Too bad. The Fins seriously kicked some Nazi ass in WWII.

    Uh, actually they were allied with Germany from 1941-1944.

    They kicked Communist ass in the winter war with the USSR from 1939-1940.

    Finland only fought Nazi Germany for a short period, up in Lapland, and the Germans laid waste to the entire area while retreating. Only about 2,000 casualties inflicted on the Germans.

    We hosted a Finnish exchange student when I was a kid. Nice guy, but he was not the kick-ass type for sure.

    Don't sweat it, I happen to be a WW2 history buff. I even watched a movie about their war with the Soviets IN FINNISH on YouTube.

    They don't go into the injuries of the robbers, so I can only assume that it's a similar situation to the old man who shot the teenager in his home, and once he was no longer a threat shot and killed him. Maybe he stabbed the people 1000x. Without that detail it's hard to understand

    If someone breaks into your house, you should be allowed torture them to death, and then harvest their organs to store in-case you need them for a future operation.

    Wasn't the hard core sniper guy Finnish. Tie white death or something. One guy with some old ass rifle killed some incredible amount of Russian soldiers. I think the only think that stopped him was he got part of his face shot off. Balls of steel.
