    If he stuck him in the chest, wouldn't that mean it would go through him (tip of a sword O_O?)

    He probaly used the flat side of the sword or it was in the scabbard still when he hit the burgular.

    It would seem anything shaped like a samurai sword is one these days.

    If it had happened round here you can probably expect the kid to get arrested.

    That kid's parents would have to be pretty stupid to let him have a sharp sword. It was probably either an unsharpenable stainless steel sword, or a wooden training sword.

    The way I see it, the kid was perfectly within his rights to slice and dice the bastard.

    I feel it should be perfectly legal to kill someone trying to steal your stuff. They used to hang horse thieves, why is a car thief any different....or some guy trying to steal property in your house?

    The laws in America are twisted and lacking in common sense. Thieves seem to have more rights than the person they were stealing from. Notice the thief in that article walked the very next day. [​IMG]

    I'm actually surprised the kid didn't get in any trouble himself. That's usually what happens.

    if a burglar came in my house, I've got a massive wooden sword I made back in highschool, it's pretty cool looking, and in the dark, the burglar would probably shit his pants.

    or I could just use a baseball bat [​IMG]

    There was some "yoofs" in my garden few months back so I got my fire cutting axe and my German Shepherd dog. Once they saw us they soon left.

    Perhaps I overreacted but I did have this "what if they get to my missus" thought in my head.
