Self DefenseA week ago last Sunday, Johnathan Tews had just arrived at his parents’ home in the working-class, west end Edmonton neighbourhood of Canora. He was talking to his father who was relaxing on a recliner in the living room when he heard a commotion on the street out front.

When Tews looked out, he saw his mother returning home from a grocery errand fighting off two men who were trying to force their way into her car.
