In this case, the headlines say it all:
- Hopkins student kills intruder with samurai sword, police say
- Police: Student Armed With Sword Kills Intruder
- Hopkins student kills intruder with sword
I can’t tell you how many people forwarded me this… my being from Bodymore, Murdaland Baltimore, Maryland. The Associated Press reports:
A Johns Hopkins University student armed with a samurai sword killed an intruder in his garage, Baltimore police said Tuesday.
Two laptops and a Sony PlayStation had been stolen by burglars Monday from the home, on University Parkway just blocks from the school, said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. Early Tuesday, one of the four Hopkins students who live in the home noticed the garage door was open and took a sword with him to investigate, Guglielmi said.
In the garage, the student told police he discovered a man and when the student told the man to get out, the man accosted him, Guglielmi said. The student defended himself with the sword, cutting off the man’s hand and causing a severe laceration to his upper body, he said.
Kind of gives new meaning to “Will you protect this house? I will! I will,” doesn’t it? I’m not being crass, so I hope my tone doesn’t come off as such. It’s just that… a samurai sword? Really? Wow.
The moral of this story? Don’t eff with Baltimore.
P.S. Note to those that don’t know: It’s Johns Hopkins, not John Hopkins. That “s” is mucho importante.
