    He'll probably be charged with voluntary manslaughter. Hopefully not though.

    If he gets charged for this, it'll be outrageous. I'm happy for the student.

    Well it depends if he really did "lung" at the students. Personally? I don't think he did. Especially when there is four of them and one is carrying a samurai sword. He may of been stupid enough to try and rob the place but he isn't that stupid.

    I don't know. Just which version of the Sony PlayStation did the 'suspected' burglar steal? If it was a PS3, he deserved to die. No question about it.

    lmao...so he severed his hand then took another lash at him.

    As if the severed hand isn't gonna be enough to stop him in his tracks.

    And did the guy drop the stuff that was in his hand and break it? Then it was all for nothing.

    But I like this guy who went for the lash after taking out the guys hand...pretty pro

    Self Defense. He was protecting himself. And yes a career criminal just out of jail will do something like that, he was facing four young people, he probably assumed they would scatter and run or cower. If he had gotten the sword no telling what might have happened. As for the damage, what is to say the hand was the last thing hit and that the career criminal did not try to keep coming?

    Nice to see you liberals think self defense is not ok.

    Really? Did I say that somewhere? If anything, I was saying they had the right to do this. Once again, you're talking out of your ass.
