There have been a couple of sword stories over the past few months (not including the kid who wanted to have one in his yearbook picture of course).

While I wouldn't point to any particular common thread, as we sarcastically do from time to time, I do have to wonder what is driving the new fascination.

"“We don’t have any background or any events leading up to the assault this morning that would give any indication of a motive,” he said."

"The officers then spotted her brother, 16-year-old Josh Gilchrist, swinging a long sword, Schmitt said.

Schmitt said the boy struck one of the officers several times before the others fired several shots, killing him."

"Police said the boy’s father, Jon Gilchrist, was not home during the attacks in the east-central South Dakota town.

Schmitt said he believes Josh Gilchrist collected swords."

I'm not ready to jump on the "excessive force" bandwagon at this time. Sounds like the officer's lives were in immediate danger. Too bad they didn't have rubber bullets though. Be that as it may, one officer was already injured. Physical contact may not have been possible.
