Someone give that kid a medal! Gotta wonder though... what the hell was he doing with a real sword in his house? O.o

Dxoh, it's not uncommon to own a samurai sword; they have quite a following.

I myself am the proud owner of an Ishimatsu Daito and Wakisashi set, made of authentic folded steel.

The bitch can cut.

Brilliant.

And the cloud to this silver lining is

"Authorities are determining whether the student will face criminal charges, Guglielmi said"

And then the dead guy's hoe will sue the school and the kids' familes for millions...

Also, I have several Nihon-to (Japanese swords) in my house. including this one.

You know some lawyer will want to sue the students on the behalf of the deceased, probably saying the burglar was unarmed.

Yea, right. The student DISARMED him.

Give that kid the medal.

"Yea, right. The student DISARMED him."

Oh snap!

Yeah, chances are unless he was completely hated by his family someone will charge the students.

I'd say when the theif was found the he prolly got scared senseless and shot out at the nearest moving thing, and the student in the same mannor freaked out and went beserker on his ass and prolly did'nt stop till the adreniline rush wore off.

I'm so happy I could cry. God I love true justice.

Mil'bereth, you are aware Nihon-to only applies to authentic hand-forged swords made by Japanese swordsmiths right? Japanese law only allowed Japanese swordsmiths to make 24 swords a year. Genuine Nihon-to go for thousands of dollars.

first: "The suspect died at the scene"

He was released Saturday and then came back Tuesday which was when he was killed. Read it again, it clearly states he came back after he was released.

Also a proud owner of a samurai sword and an authentic 300-Spartan sword (replica of the movie, not the actual Spartans). You know...just in case zombies ever take over.

I wonder when they will relate this with VideoGame violence-.-

 
At 9:20 PM, Blogger Twin said...

I think it was totally justified. I mean, if no one was home and he robbed them that is no problem. Insurance can cover whatever was taken.

The moment he entered the house with people inside, I would have deemed him dangerous. Plus, he lunged at the students, it doesn't matter what he was trying to do violent or not. That kind of action would automatically translate into an attack by a burglar and I'd defend myself accordingly.

Way to go kid.

The moment someone threatens another human being's life, that person should lose all rights as a human being. And the very act of breaking and entering is an act of threatening any occupant's lives. The way I see it, the burglar was put down like a rabid dog.

Harsh, but if that thought process was put into use, crime would drop precipitously. So it is fair. /shrug

Also, what I meant, was this was on a college campus, right? Most colleges don't allow weapons. And I'm fairly certain a samarai sword counts.

That guy must have had some skill with that sword because it's very difficult to cut a mans arm off with that thing.

Jack Thompson would have had a field day with this...

Oh wait...

See what happens when you don't sub NIN?

That is the shortest and yet funniest thing I've seen posted in weeks.

1. It was off campus housing with 4 students.
2. You could say it was related to video games, because the residents had laptops and a PS3 stolen a very short time before.
3. Maryland does not have Castle Doctrine in its state laws, however it has common-law doctrine with a case by case basis.

That being said, the bastard was lucky he didn't waltz into my house. The gimp's been getting lonely.

Lol I could see how playing the wii make's you an excellent cutter, swinging around all day, to bad he was apparantly a proud owner of a ps3... gotta suck for the media...

But yeh way to go...

Dude, have you seen the numbers you can get with Tachi: Gekko?

@ Justin

Nihon = Japan
to = suffix for sword
katana is a word for a type of japanese sword. As is tsurugi, ken, wakizashi, kodachi, nodachi, daito, shoto, etc.

Do I have a hand forged genuine age old Soshu Masamune in my house...no

I don't have a $20,000.00+ sword, but I do dabble in the koryu.

My comment was a generalization.

My point was this kid probably had what was most likely a 20-50 dollar piece of shit found at a nazi biker retailer like this

http://budk.com/

and he still cut some dudes arm off and killed him. Merit Points to him. (Like 5 to GK skill)

Imagine what could have been done with a carbon steel blade designed to actually cut.

i.e. Hagun > Lotus Katana

i guess they didn't have a WHM in the pt.

I would say it's the thief's fault for not opening with sneak attack/trick attack. Any good thief would have been able to easily make him think one of the other students attacked him.

Here is what makes FFXI better than real life.

Some lawyer is probably going to anally rape the school and those students.

FFXI doesn't have a lawyer class!

After all...

LAW > SAM > THF??

My god, CNN needs a new editor. Not only does the article contradict itself, but the constant "...Guglielmi said" makes it a f*cking joke.

I can write better than that, and I'm swedish.

@Dice

In what part does the article contradicts itself? Also, u are right on the Guglielmi said part, I totally agree with u on that 1,Guglielmi said.
