Johns Hopkins Student Defends Self with Samurai Sword

Let me see if I got this right; the 4 students were in Baltimore? I suspect Baltimore is one of those "Gun Free" Zones? The Burgler (with a "lengthy arrest record" of 29 incidents) was hiding "crouched" under a table and "lunged" at the student who went to investigate? The student swung the sword and laserated the burgler in the upper chest and cut off his hand?

Sounds like self-defense to me; hope he doesn't get his life ruined for defending himself...

And it's interesting that the perp' was newly released from incarceration.
Justice has finally been served. Good riddance.
Hope the student is completely exonerated.

the thing that kills me in all of this is the perp's sister is saying the kid should be charged, and that the perp didn't deserve to die.

sure, it sucks the guy was too dumb to learn from his mistakes, but stupidity should hurt...and this will be less of a burden on us taxpayers.

someone recently compared the nastier parts of East Baltimore to a third world country, and i'm starting to agree. this place is turning into NYC in the 70s.

"Blood curdling screams".

Heh.

Catastrophic failure of the victim selection process.

The States Attorney is deciding whether to file charges against the STUDENT? Excuse me, but WTF? I reserve my right to slice and dice a 29-time repeat offender, or a first offender for that matter, in defense of my person and or domicile. If you don't want a close encounter with Sammy the Sword (or, in my case, Sammy the Sig Sauer) stay where you belong and where you have a right to be!

Interesting bit of hypocrisy - JH Police responded (out of their Jurisdiction), yet the talking mouths say it's not their matter.

Prayers go out tot he student for exoneration and a return to a normal life.

I'm reminded of the fact that if this student were in the UK, he couldn't even legally own his Katana now.

Hell, I've got a real Scottish broadsword from ColdSteel.com, but if I hear someone breaking in downstairs, I'm reaching for my Mossy 500 in its bedside rack.

In the name of Dungeon Masters around the world, we hereby award this student one hundred experience points and two rolls on Treasure Chart 'O'.
