I wouldn't buy the guy a drink, I wouldn't want to associate with such a person. To attack and pretty much cut someones head off with a sword is an extremely aggresive and brutal act, even considering the circumstances. And it doesn't sound like the students life was in any danger anyway, judging by the article it doesn't sound like he was held a gun point or anything.

On another note, he is gonna be one bad ass doctor.

Not many medics can say they killed a man with a samurai sword.

Self defence. He won't be prosecuted for defending himself. Good on him.

If he didn't he could have gone the same way as that leeds met student who was stabbed to death in his flat.

The moral of the story is that if you don't want to be stabbed with a katana then don't burgle houses.

Ifi he doesn't get prosecuted for self defence, how's he getting away with carrying a ******* samurai sword in public lol? (hope he doesn't get prosecuted though)

Edit: Sorry, i misread, it was in their garage. Fair dos, the guy deserved it even more then

I would be highly suspicious of anyone who felt the need to keep a deadly weapon in their home.
Why? It's the norm in America. The majority of households own a firearm of some description. Many people also keep samurai swords as display pieces, nothing wrong with keeping them.

Nothing to be suspicious about when it's a constitutional right and social norm.

If it's not his sword and another students then he probably will get off as he just picked the nearest object up and the owner of it will probbaly get a fine.

Wow.

My mate has a samurai sword that he keeps on top of a cupboard and claims he'd go for if someone broke into his house. Generally he just uses it for chopping apples.

Unless it's the death of some scum bag trying to nick your stuff to buy crack.
Here, here!!. We were burgled by drug addicts last year, the robbing so and sos. No one has the right to break in to my home and steal the things that I have worked so damn hard to get just so they can buy their dirty drugs!. Why should I support their addictions?????. Sorry but I get so mad when I hear about low life scum stealing off decent people.

I support the guy 100%....he wont get sent down for killing the burglar I dont think. Everyone has the right to defend their home, or should do anyway. We have no idea what went on in the house, perhaps the guy was threatened by the burglar?.

Actually the owner won't get a fine as in the US the swords are totally legal

I don't want to say its good, because a loss of life is never a positive thing. However, I support the right to defend your property by violent means.

You think a med student, defending his property from a criminal is going to be charged in America? There would be a public outcry and a queue of defence lawyers stretching the length of the mississippi willing to defend him.

He isn't going to get anything :p:
lol after reading the article did i realsie it was in the states and not uk

Not a very proportionate response...it didn't say the burglar was armed. There were 4 of them, they could have easily overpowered him.

Fair point, but pehaps an indication that its time to replace the 2nd amendment and start changing a few social norms.

I think the UK position on such things is somewhat healthier.

Self defence laws in the UK are a laughing stock to be honest.

I have a feeling this is a cover up story.

They were not medical students. But a lair of Ninjas.

Well the burglar seemed to think he could take them or he wouldn't have lunged.
That and as well as self defence US law allows the use of force to defend others in imminent danger.

And the burglar might have been in his 40s but for all you know he could have been massive and the students small and weedy.

Good luck with that, even most of the Democrats wouldn't dare to interfere with the right to bear arms. There's just simply no way that it'd pass in Congress, even Obama supports the right to bear arms and he's supposedly the socialist antichrist killing America according to some.

Well I hope no close member of your family commits a crime against someone who decides to appoint themselves judge, jury and executioner....
