As Above So Below
Is there a longer video for more context? This seems like a pretty dubious use of force to me. However, if the masked men were threatening violence to the shopkeeper before the above clip starts, that would be a different story. What is shown in the video appears to be a shopkeeper repeatedly stabbing someone for attempted shoplifting.

Yes there appears to be a longer video showing the alleged thief walk in the shop...Its in this link below...

I do not know what the laws are like in the state of Nevada, but in England I would say that the shopkeeper would likely be arraigned on charges of attempted murder or at least grievous bodily harm if he had acted similarly in this country. He claims to have been in fear of his life, but he leapt to stab the boy when the boy moved to take items from the shelves, not to attack him, and the boy appears to have been unarmed. I believe that the Supreme Court in the US has ruled previously against the use of lethal force for the mere protection of property.
