Alright, we have just entered The Onion Zone.

What 44 year old…..no, what human, with apparently a wife and kid is stealing a CD, let alone barricading himself and pulling blades on cops?

Is this an upcoming J-Drama series?

In California you can legally shoplift up to $250 of goods. But if the they come to your house and you show a weapon you will be shot dead and probably your ten year old child in crossfire. The guy and his family is very lucky.

but a CD? Probably eight police there for 11 hours. Then the forensic team, and all neighbours prevented access to their home. Wonder what music it was?
