    Talking Sword Fight Ensues After South Carolina Break-In

    Sword Fight Ensues After South Carolina Break-In

    HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C

    A man toting a 3-foot sword apparently met his match when he broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment: The woman's roommate grabbed a sword of his own and sliced the intruder, police said.

    The roommate, a sword collector, fended off the ex-boyfriend, who was cut on the arm, police said.

    Elvis Javier Polanco, 18, was treated at a hospital and charged with burglary and aggravated assault, Beaufort County sheriff's Capt. Toby McSwain said. He said Polanco broke a window and climbed on his friend's shoulders to get into the apartment.

    The roommate, Louis Delgado Hernandez, disarmed the intruder while the woman called police, McSwain said.

    Good job by the roommate, but too bad he didn't get that fool removed from the gene pool. I can see it now though....Bloomberg is now going to say it's VA's fault for allowing assault swords into SC. We should ban butter knives.

    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)

    If you break into my home and you have a handgun, you don't want to miss. I have swords in every room within reach. You miss you lose the hand and who knows what else. But then I may just pull my gun and shoot you, I always have lots of defence options.
