Gijsbert Rider claimed that he and his wife felt “threatened” by two of the residents at a mobile home park near his home in the south of the Netherlands. He proceeded to build a fence around his property. A dispute arose with the local building council. Ultimately a judge ruled that the fence had to come down.
That’s when things began to…escalate. Mr. Rider evidently took to heart the expression, “a man’s home is his castle.” and prepared to repel boarders with a bow and arrows and several Molotov cocktails.
In spite of his attempts to set several policemen afire, the Dutch SWAT team managed to take him into custody without loss of life.

So much for “Good fences make good neighbors.”
Be seeing you.
