That was a "highlander" fallout, not a "last samurai" one.

I whould think that the cop was under alot of stress and reacted purely on instinct, that is didn't aim to well.

Yeah, the "I'm immortal" lie doesn't exactly scream "last samurai" so much as "Highlander".....

Whatever.

"My brother was a wonderful person; he just had some emotional problems that we're still trying to sort out," Nicole Forbes said.

Uh, yep.

"The stocky martial-arts black belt swung so hard, he bent one sword on her head"

What kind of crappy Katana bends on someones head?

Wow, that's major fucked.



According to an initial investigation, Kelly added, "It looks like the shooting was justified."
No ****?!?!?!



Good thing the freaking woman didn't have an AR or something like that.

But, now we have a new master of the understatements:

"My brother was a wonderful person; he just had some emotional problems that we're still trying to sort out," Nicole Forbes said.

:D

How do they get that this guy was a "martial arts expert"?

Didn't it say he was a black belt in something. He probably got it at age 11. News like this just makes MA"s look like loonies. Unfortunately, someone had to die for this guy's mental issues.

A good katana will likely chip/warp on skull. It's not indestructable. So if he was an "expert" and went for the forehead, he's obviously not a sword expert. If it warped on the neck, then it's just a shitty sword. It does say they are "ceremonial"...whatever that means.

If it wasn't drugs....I really want to know what made him do that. That's fucked up.

Most swords that you can actually buy are complete garbage.

You won't be all laughing about this when he rises from the dead and continues his quest to cut the heads off the other immortals.

Not to draw out the 'katana bending on human flesh' discussion any further than necessary, but I've seen Paul Chen quality swords bend as a result of someone screwing up tameshigiri, which kind of nulls all bets in regards to human flesh.
