This week's Idiot of the Week award goes to the dumb ass and as yet unnamed burglar that was killed with a Katana when he tried to accost his victim after being told to leave. The police have withheld the name of the burglar for some ridiculous reason, yet the district attorney is looking into the case to determine if charges will be pressed against the student that defended himself. Only in looney liberal and left wing Baltimore Maryland.

A Johns Hopkins University student killed an apparent burglar with a samurai sword after discovering the man in his garage, police said Tuesday.

Baltimore, Maryland, police received a phone call shortly before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday about a suspicious person, and an off-duty officer arrived at the scene with campus security, city police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

When authorities arrived, they heard calls for help and for police, he said. They discovered a suspected burglar with a severed left hand and severe lacerations to his upper body, Guglielmi said.

May be District Attorney Patricia Jessamy will grace next weeks IotW post. I hope not for the sake of justice.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Only a college student would leave someone alive while using a Katana. hoho

BTW: It's the student "who" or "to whom". It's incredibly impolite to refer to a person as a thing.

That = it

Personally, I also consider it evil to refer to men and women as the nouns "male" and "female". Such is the language used in reference to animals. (i.e., buck and bitch) I'm a moralist when it comes to human dignity, though.

You are right about 'that" but what the context of male and female are here I am not sure. As far as the student's efficacy with the sword, it probably was a cheap copy and/or he didn't know how to use it. The hand would not be my first choice. Shomenuchi or yokomenuchi would be.

I still have a Katana, Bokken, and Jo from my Iaido and Aikido days. Preferably though, a 45 would be more effective in case of intrusion from a thug. ;)

I have a Bukuto, or Bokken too in some sort of oak. The .45 is another story.
