“Now this is a sword.” Peace through superior firepower, they always say:
It happened this past Friday night [14 August] at the Perry Market in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Two unknown juveniles ran into the store, one of whom was brandishing a sword or very large knife.
The unknown man holding the sword ran behind the counter to demand cash, and that’s when the store clerk reached for a blade of his own: a full-length scimitar.
And just like that, battle was joined in the aisles of a Pittsburgh corner store — for a few seconds, anyways.
Security-camera video, intermixed with TV coverage, at the link. The perp, once he saw that blade coming for him, fled.
