Mysterious samurai saves Police in UK

 

A samurai sword wielding vigilante has come to the rescue of two Police officers when they were attacked by an armed gang in South Shields, England.

 

A group of men had forced their way into a house and were ransacking the place when passing plain-clothes officers were alerted by a woman inside screaming.

 

The criminals outnumbered them and were armed with a hammer, knives and chains and attacked the Police officers.

 

As one of them stabbed at a Policeman with his knife, a mysterious do-gooder appeared from nowhere and attacked him with a samurai sword.

 

One of the burglars began running away but was stopped by the stranger who struck him on the arm with the sword.

 

Two of the criminals were arrested, but in true hero style the samurai disappeared before police could speak to him.

 

A third man was arrested later and two more are still being hunted.

 

Police are especially keen to trace the man with the sword who came to the aid of their officers, and have asked for anyone with information to call them."

Hiro maybe?

 

Oh, and having done Ninjutsu, you wouldn't have used a sword, you would have just snapped their elbows or knees the wrong way. Using a bokkun (small rod of wood or metal) or just your thumb (shuto) in the armpit to fuck up their arm for a while so they couldn't use a weapon.

:lol:

 

Looks more like a ballet slipper!

 

Interesting ninja-factoid:

 

Each "clan" has it's own signature weapon or technique. Ours was the hand (palm of your hand) and feet claws which are used to "catch" swords and run up trees, giving the clan it's name "forest demons"

 

Also used for clawing at someone's face, just imagine "back in the day" coming across some dude dressed in black with no sword, you think you can have him, swing your sword, he catches it in his "bare hands" slices your face open like a tiger/bear, then runs up a tree. Would put the shits up anyone.

Fraid not, but they really did have those fans that had blades in them. Useful for when you (Samurai) are in the pub fanning yourself after a hard day's slaughtering and someone has a go before you can reach for your sword.

Assuming it was true, couldn't he be done for flashing as he was openly flaunting his nudeness in a window that had no curtains?

Depends if he was overlooking the back garden... which coincidentally is what the doctor had to do.

Dizzee Rascal for PM...

 

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/7713242.stm

 

Seriously, since Obama won, everyone's wondering if we're going to have a black PM. Why do we have a black PM? Surely we should have an Asian PM if we're going down the minority root as we have a larger Asian population than a black population.

 

Drives me mental this sort of shit.
