    This is one of those weird stories but you have to respect the man for his bravery. The dude did the rite thing only to get charged for it.....hopefully the charges will be dropped considering his intentions were good in nature.

    Brave on one hand and super stupid on another! He 's lucky he didn't get shot. Having a lunatic w/ a big sword kick down your door is where home defence comes to mind. I mean I would be pretty alarmed... Anyway at least nobady got hurt.

    Who doesn't have a phone? At least send a telegraph or morse code to the police....

    Honestly, I'd be pretty mad if some dude busted in on me if I was watching some illicit material... Except it would be the story of "man shot while barging into a neighbor's apartment with a sword."

    So what would you do if you thought someone was being raped or perhaps murdered in a neighboring apartment.? It would be too late by the time the police got there. We have a system like that in the UK and it does not work to defend anyone. In a couple of percent of cases the police catch the perp after the event but for the victim it is already too late.

    +1. He should have called the police and then knocked, IMHO. Sounds like a great way to let good intentions get you killed.
