    Don't bring pepper spray to a epee fight...wait... what? That's pretty awesome of the guy to do this. I would have loved to see those BGs faces seeing some guy screaming and waving a sword at them. Would have been epic to see in person.

    Dang Mike, I have to slow my speed reading a bit. I was reading the title as Epi not Epee and thought someone was going after a bad guy with an EpiPen. LOL

    I have my old fencing foil in the basement, maybe I could carry it in gun free zones.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I would have used the word "foil" instead, but that would have taken us all to a new level of multiple entendre.

    He done good. It is a Felony to use OC/Pepper Spray offensively as VS "proper use" ~ defensively.

    Schmucks must have gone into shock as the guy bust in, in full costume, hollering, and coming at them, looking like a Flaming Zoro'd up Super Hero !!
    If I had been a customer, I'd have wet myself laughing.
    The perps had better change their story for the other prisoners.. especially "Mr Butt"!! LOL

    Glad he took action, instead of sitting on the fence.

    Touché.

    Good for him. Few bad guys will hang around when a guy is waving a sword and screaming like a lunatic.

    But he SHOULD have said, "Hello. My name is Franco Scaramuzza. You killed my father. Prepare to die." A great opportunity wasted.

    I couldn't believe that the one idiot witness tweeted about it instead of calling police or doing something useful. Amazing.

    People are stupid, and they take videos of crimes instead of calling 911 or helping. We are becoming a voyeur society, where people think that their surroundings are just a reality TV show.
