    WV Gun and Sword Fight

    W.Va. trooper shoots sword-wielding woman

    The Associated Press

    The Herald-Dispatch

    ELIZABETH, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia State Police trooper shot and wounded a woman after she threatened him with a sword.


    The trooper was responding to a 911 call Sunday night when he went to 39-year-old Glenna J. Westfall’s residence in Elizabeth.


    State Police said in a news release that Westfall grabbed a sword as the trooper arrived and advanced aggressively toward him.


    The trooper shot Westfall and then administered basic first aid until medical personnel arrived. Westfall was taken a local hospital. Her condition wasn’t immediately available Monday.


    A State Police spokesman didn’t immediately return a telephone message.

    This is about stupid with the sword waving. Wonder what part of the "trooper will shoot you" did she not understand?

    I wonder which caliber Ms. Westfall thought her sword was...

    She should have used a light sabre instead.

    You can deflect bullets with one of those.

    You can bet your last dollar that I will not get cut with a sword if I respond to your house.

    There is no future in it.

    .45 trumps sword.

    I thought only a Katana could deflect bullets? Have I been lied to by Japanese ninja movies all these years?!

    I wonder, in regards to grabbing the sword, was that the only thing available? Was she on something that made her think "Hey, I've seen this in the movies, it'll work out great!"? I guess its at least a positive thing that she was not a gun owner.

    I used to work in a sword shop that sold thousands of swords and knives online. Every time I read a story like this I wonder if it was a sword that we sold.

    This story should be a lesson to others. You may think Drugs give you super ninja powers but they really don't. Your not Popeye and need to lay off the spinach.

    I actually own reproduction Katana and Wakizashi swords, and they are sharp and with the right technique can injure or kill.

    However, never, ever bring them out when confronting a WV State Trooper. Definitely a "what was I thinking" moment.

    Maybe she thought she could deflect the bullets, or even cut um in half like the cat from Wolverine! From the looks of it, she's definitely not Wonder woman.

    Useless, the saber is, without the force.
