At least the guy didn't use a letter opener.

If only there was some sort of Hidden Fortress one could hide in/at....

Six years for taking a life is disgusting. 20 years would be more like it, that or a rope....

It's weird how the killer kept fighting the guy, who seemed to gravitate to the killer's family. Probably just wanted him to leave them alone.
In the end he got the point.

/6 years is a joke. Even worse when you add time off for good behavior and/or probation
 
2017-06-16 09:13:29 PM  
Also, article says he killed his friend with a sword.
The guy in the mugshot looks like he's unclear on the concept of friends.

He got convicted of voluntary manslaughter instead of 2nd degree murder, and it appears that the killer was stoned out of his mind on meth when the killing happened (meth is a hell of a drug).

If that's how he treats his friends, I'd hate to see how he treats his enemies.

Silly subby. You can never watch too many Toshiro Mifune movies.

Even Katsu realized that there was one opponent Zatoichi couldn't kill, but only defeat with his indomitable spirit.

Did you RTFA?  He was responding to his friend trying to beat him with his fists.  He probably deserved that but self-defense is marginally applicable.  What he really needs is a couple years or more of detox for his meth habit but I doubt that will happen in prison.

That's what I thought, too, when I saw hist post.

"Lonebear pleads guilty to using sword to kill Lame Deer man."

Well, duh, bears are usually solitary creatures, and the easiest prey are lame animals. The sword bit confuses me though. Unless the bear was Japanese.

I would actually be interested in a where are they now on those guys.  I'm hoping they are enjoying a fast paced career in food service.
 
2017-06-16 11:16:55 PM  
which samurai sword?  A katana or a wakazashi?  Inquiring minds need to know
 
2017-06-16 11:35:40 PM  
Calling the killing tragic, Watters said the fighting between Lonebear and Little was fueled by substance abuse by both men.

Maybe I'm alone in this but to me Lonebear and Little sounds like the name of a comedy duo.

In all fairness, Mifune was awesome!...
...AND he really could use a sword.

Killing an unarmed opponent is dishonorable..
