Porn and Swords Don't Mix

Not THOSE swords, you sickie.  The real kind.

For all you j-school grads, this recent AP story is a fantastic example of NOT burying the lede ...

PORN DVD SCREAMS PROMPT SWORD 'RESCUE'

OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — A man says he broke into an apartment with a cavalry sword because he thought he heard a woman being raped, but the sound actually was from a pornographic movie his upstairs neighbor was watching.

"Now I feel stupid," said James Van Iveren, who has been charged in the case.
Actually, I think it's sort of sweet.  If more neighbors brandished cavalry swords, we might decrease domestic violence (or vibrator usage) significantly.

Although I think my favorite part is further into the article, when it's revealed that "The neighbor later played for police the part of the DVD he believed Van Iveren heard downstairs."

I love that the police were like, "Um, yeah ... we're gonna need to, you know, watch that porn.  Just to see, of course.  Just doing our job.  Just investigating."

Right.
