I study the Renaissance martial arts with ARMA, which includes dagger and sword fighting. As you might expect from a large international organization, members catch news reports of swords being used.

With few exceptions, the sword incidents come from the UK where guns are banned. The lesson? When government turns free people into criminals for definding themselves, people will turn to the next best thing. (If somebody breaks into your house, and you resist the criminals at all, you go to jail. Talk about a promoting safe "work environments!")

It says that police are "keen" to talk to the "vigilante" who helped save their hides, though I doubt he'll be volunteering to show up at the station because he broke several of the insane anti-defense laws.

Mysterious samurai saves Police in UK Tue 10:50pm

A samurai sword wielding vigilante has come to the rescue of two Police officers when they were attacked by an armed gang in South Shields, England.

A group of men had forced their way into a house and were ransacking the place when passing plain-clothes officers were alerted by a woman inside screaming.

The criminals outnumbered them and were armed with a hammer, knives and chains and attacked the Police officers.

As one of them stabbed at a Policeman with his knife, a mysterious do-gooder appeared from nowhere and attacked him with a samurai sword.

One of the burglars began running away but was stopped by the stranger who struck him on the arm with the sword.

Two of the criminals were arrested, but in true hero style the samurai disappeared before police could speak to him.

A third man was arrested later and two more are still being hunted.

Police are especially keen to trace the man with the sword who came to the aid of their officers, and have asked for anyone with information to call them.

Good for him! & hopefully those officers were thankful enough to give the "it happened so fast we never got a good look at him" description to their superiors. :wink:

If that good samaritan were ever convicted of a crime, it would be a perfect example of a little scripture I know that talks about the days when men 'call good evil and evil good'.

I echo Jeff's sentiments. He needs to remain anonymous.
