JJV sent me this account of a man, his sword, his self-appointed duty to uphold justice, and, not surprisingly in retrospect, his subsequent arrest.
Unfortunately for his cause, he admitted that he had "extended" the weapon at the non-rapist, which in fencing is generally considered an aggressive action. Although it was a saber, by which rules simply setting foot on the strip is an aggressive action and is to be countered by yelling, running and whacking, not necessarily in that order and not necessarily in the direction of one's opponent.
Herewith my entry for Extreme Screenplay Paraphrasing, from Mamet no less:
"Just like a man who lives with his mom, to bring a sword to a porno movie."
