An undergraduate student at Johns Hopkins University went to investigate noises coming from the garage behind his residence. The guy who had broken into the garage lunged at the student and he defended himself...with his samurai sword. He skewered the scumbag then severed his hand. The scumbag, a 48 year old habitual felon, died on the scene. The state's attorney is considering whether charges will be filed against the student.
H/T to Xavier.
