Nothing like a suicidal, sword wielding man to get the heart rate pumping. It all started when police were called to a Boston apartment and tried to enter. While the cops were pounding the door, the man inside jumped through a closed third-floor window, bounced off an awning, slammed into the ground and ran off. Ta-da. Back up was called and some 20 cops chased after him . At some stage he spun around and drew a sword then charged the police shouting “Shoot me! Kill me!”. Hats off to the police, who restrained from pulling triggers while Sgt. Thomas Teahan snuck up from behind and tackled him.

OK, on a scale of 1 to 10, how pissed off would you be if after 30 years in jail (including time on death row) the judge overturned your conviction, saying the Boston police hid evidence which could have proved your innocence? Well, I wouldn’t ask Laurence Adams, he has just settled a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city of Boston for that very thing. Geez, people get locked in Austrian dungeons for less.
