    Cutting robbery down to size. Sorry had to throw in my pun. That's what happens when you try to rob a ninja. Absolute win for the student.

    Good for the kid! When I was his age...2 years ago, my friends and I had our house burglarized, I think none of us had ever been that ****ed off. For most people, you really can't know exactly how you're going to react in that situation, and he stepped up and did what he had to do.

    Besides, I'm sure the burglar didn't want to go back to prison anyway

    Police say N.J. man who killed intruder with samurai sword didn't have 'intent to kill'
    by The Associated Press
    Thursday September 17, 2009, 12:39 PM
    BALTIMORE -- Baltimore homicide detectives don't believe a Johns Hopkins University student had "the intent to kill" when he used a samurai sword to confront an intruder behind his home, a police spokesman said today.

    Twenty-year-old John Pontolillo, a junior chemistry major from Wall Township, killed the man with a single blow early Tuesday after police said the suspected burglar lunged at him.


    Lloyd Fox/The Baltimore Sun/
    The yard where a Johns Hopkins University student from Wall armed with a samurai sword killed an intruder in his garage early this morning.
    Pontolillo has not been charged in the death of Donald D. Rice, 49, who had a long rap sheet of burglary arrests and was released from jail just two days before the altercation. Prosecutors will determine whether charges are appropriate after consulting with police, a process that could take weeks.

    "We do not believe he went down there with the intent to kill somebody," police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said of Pontolillo. "We're looking to see if he was the aggressor, and so far the evidence doesn't suggest that."

    When Pontolillo saw Rice, he raised the sword and yelled for his roommates to call police, Guglielmi said. Rice lunged at the student, who backed up against a wall. At that point, Pontolillo struck Rice once with the sword, nearly severing Rice's left hand and causing a severe wound to his upper body. Rice died at the scene.

    Guglielmi said today that when the student found Rice, he was was hiding in the small, fenced courtyard between the back porch and the detached garage behind Pontolillo's off-campus home. Police had initially said Rice was hiding inside the garage.

    Police also revealed that Pontolillo and his three roommates, all Hopkins students, had been warned by a city officer and a campus security officer late Monday about a suspicious person in the neighborhood just east of campus.

    At that point, the students told the officers that Pontolillo's XBox video game console and two laptop computers had been stolen from their home earlier that night. Police investigated and found no signs of forced entry, according to police reports about the thefts.

    After the officers left, Pontolillo retrieved the sword and decided to perform a more thorough search, including the garage and his car, Guglielmi said. The officers heard the screams during the encounter with Rice and rushed back to the scene, he said.

    Pontolillo has not returned calls seeking comment. A man who answered the phone at the home of John A. Pontolillo said he had no comment.

    Rice's sister, Peggy Rice, told WJZ-TV in Baltimore Wednesday that her brother did not deserve to die and that the student should be charged.

    Not sure if the video mentions it or not but I think this guy had 29 prior arrests. I'm sure that city is better off now.

    He should have known he wasn't cut out to be a burglar.

    Nah, you just have to buy the neutered versions of them.

    And I forgot expandable batons are illegal there, too.
