Can't shoot burglars?

On the way back home this afternoon I heard a bit of interesting news on the radio: a guy is charged with shooting a burglar who broke into his house. Ok, I guess this human right thing is getting a bit out of hand. Does this mean that while some one can risk arrest in order to hurt me, I could also be arrested for punching him in the act of self defense? Kinda absurd to me... Let the damage take place first, then sue!

I know I had only heard the headline and not the details of the case, but I found it amazing nonetheless.
