What is a minimal use of force?


The Law says a citezen can use a minimal amount of force to deter an intruder. But isn't minimal defined as making the other give up? And what do you do when some-one wont give up or disist? Does the Law actually define what minimal force is, or does it keep us all guessing? If the law can't or hasn't defined it how can it claim to know what it is or isn't. And for that matter how can it distribute actual justice if no-one is clear what the rules are?
