^^A third. Huh?
This is a discussion on Bad: Guard fatally shoots man armed with swords at Scientology building within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; ^^A third. Huh?...
The "swordsman" was an Oregon man. Chalk up another wonderful export from Beaver State.
Ditto on the eval. Stopping an aggressive and apparently deranged attacker coming at innocents surely seems a good thing.
Ditto for me on the Guard having a good shoot under the circumstances...
For God, Family and Country!
This guy should have watched Indiana Jones before venturing out with his weapon of choice.
Two 5 foot swords couldn't possibly hurt you. They weren't covered in the assault weapons ban right? I assume this model has a pistol grip, but does it have a blade shroud? You know, the thing that goes up?
He fits the classic profile for a dangerous mental patient. I can't believe he was on the streets... oh wait... yes I can he's not a drug addict or a border patrol agent.

Sounds like a good shoot why is this labeled bad???????
Another lost opportunity to keep a criminal in jail.Majorski, who had numerous addresses in Los Angeles County and Oregon in the past two decades, was convicted of stalking Lane County Circuit Judge Debra Vogt in June 2007 and sentenced to 24 months' probation in September 2007
I think i might feel threatened or intimidated. especially if my young kids were around?
"He'd dance in his front yard wearing devil's horns and all kinds of strange things when the kids were getting on the bus for school. Last week, he came out with 30 or 40 plastic coat hangers all over his arms. I didn't feel threatened or intimidated, but apparently he has an evil streak."
thankfully this moron didn't have his hands on a gun. I would be curious to see if he tried...
Maybe he watched a little too much Kill Bill!?
Seems like a justifiable case to me.
USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
I am the God fearing, gun toting, flag waving conservative you were warned about!
It's a vicious cult that shreds people. They hire security because this sort of thing happens all the time. Almost always as a result of their abuse of their own members.
Scientology is a criminal organization. I would say this was "undertermined" because I'll bet you a thousand alien Xenu's that when the whole story comes out, this guy was a member who was broken, destroyed and pushed to the point of desperation.
(I just confirmed this. He was an ex-member who had taken courses that are priced in the $70-100,000 range EACH... Hence his two bankruptcy filings. He had taken an active role in harassing critics of scientology, which probably means that he was a member of Scientology's "OSA" or "Office of Special Affairs"... Some of the training he took was called "L11," which has been reported in several incidents to cause "mental breakdowns". Most notably, it happened with a gal named Lisa McPherson, who ended up dead as a result. A google search will tell you more than you want to know.)

It sounds like this fellow was perhaps a part of this (an article from American Lawyer magazine on Scientology's war against judges): http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50gran...wyer-1980.html

The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.
I'm a little curious why this is labled bad as well. Exactlymypoint, and chance on some commentary?
