Three masked men attacked the rural home of Ian Thomson with firebombs while Thomson was in it. Rather than let his house burn to the ground waiting for law enforcement, Thomson defended himself with his firearms. Now he is on trial. Cam Edwards speaks with Lorne Gunter of the National Post about the backwards system that hangs victims like Thomson. Originally aired 2/2/2012.
