Reasonable force/Defending the home

I find it utterly absurd that in a lot of cases that I have read or heard about, the victim gets the harsher punishment. People should be able to defend their homes and families without the worry of being prosecuted for doing so. Also, reasonable force needs to be redefined. It is impossible to tell what reasonable force means. There needs to be radical changes in self defence.

Why is this idea important?
