It's not a good idea to touch a gamer's gear, the consequences can be very grave as the following news article perfectly illustrates. Gizmodo reports a John Hopkins University student killed a thief who entered his off-campus residence overnight.
The house is home to four undergrads who had already had a PlayStation and two laptops stolen earlier on Monday. The student heard strange noises at night and went downstairs to investigate armed with the sword.
When caught the thief tried to attack the sword-wielding student, a capital mistake he had to pay with his life as the the student planted his sword in the thug's upper body. And it gets even gorier as the report mentions the suspect also suffered a nearly-severed hand. Must have been a pretty sharp sword.
And when one of the students heard noises at about 1am, he went to downstairs to investigate armed with the sword. He saw that the side door to their garage had been pried open, and inside, was lunged at by the suspect.
The poor guy didn't deserve to die, but Police have confirmed he has priors for breaking and entering.
