We are overloaded with bad news, but today`s article has a very happy outcome.

The student asked the intruder to leave, and then the bad guy accosted him. Nine time out of ten this scenario would have had a bad ending for the resident.

You have to give the young man a hand for his expert use of the samurai sword.

The bad guy died at the scene - he should be displayed in his coffin with his hand rammed into his mouth as a testimony that crime doesn`t pay.

Every homeowner should own a gun to defend his property and his family.
