embarrasing, but i would have done similarly (maybe leaving the sword out..) :p

i mean, if i actually hear somebody calling for help, and it doesn't sound like a movie, you have to do something, right?

unless you think all homeless people want to be homeless. cause you probably think she was asking for it and should never have put herself in that situation, without a pitbull, sig sauer, and 10 years of martial arts training.

are you directing that at me or just in general?

anyway i think the case is pretty damn funny, wasnt a good idea on his part to kick down the door rambo style and demand the girl with a sword in hand. I find it hard to believe that he didn't have a phone.

haha, no not at all.

i was sort of referring to some not so good samaritans. (I was being a dick).

i actually ran into the park next to an apartment i lived at with a flashlight and a mop handle in the middle of the night because i thought i heard screams or something. it was probably a neighbor's tv too. :?

the shocking thing is also the fact that the neighbor was watching a rape film. that's as sick as snuff films, unless it was just Death Wish or something, before chuck gets around to blowing em away. lol

ftw, i have a sword, but these days i'd take a gun.

well not that i would know, but i don't think they're calling for help during most p0rn0s, unless somebody is limp. :p

it's still funnier than hell...


i bet the wally has an outfit to go with the sword....


OCONOMOWOC, Wis. Feb 21, 2007 (AP)— 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. "This really is nothing, nothing but a mistake."

According to a criminal complaint, the neighbor told police that Van Iveren pounded on the door and kicked it open without warning Feb. 12, damaging the frame and lock.

"Where is she?" Van Iveren demanded, thrusting the sword at the neighbor, the complaint said. "Where is she?"

The neighbor told police Van Iveren became increasingly aggressive as he repeated the question, insisting that he had heard a woman being raped. The complaint said that, with the sword pointed at him, the neighbor led Van Iveren throughout the apartment, opening closet doors to prove he was alone.

The neighbor later played for police the part of the DVD he believed Van Iveren heard downstairs.

Van Iveren, 39, of Oconomowoc, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal damage and disorderly conduct, all while using a dangerous weapon, and is due in court March 5. Together, the misdemeanor counts carry a maximum sentence of 33 months in jail.

Van Iveren said Tuesday that he heard a woman "screaming for help," grabbed the sword, bounded up the stairs, kicked in the apartment door and confronted the man who lived there.

"I intended to hold it behind my back and knock. But I froze and instead, what happened happened," he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Contesting his neighbor's account, Van Iveren said he didn't look anywhere in the apartment except the front room, and that he never threatened the neighbor with the sword.

"I had the sword extended. But that was all," he said.

Van Iveren, who lives with his mother in the downstairs apartment, said he did not call police when he heard the noises because he does not have a telephone. He said he barely knew the upstairs tenant....

really, though, the guy shouldn't get jailtime. If it HAD been a woman getting raped he definately wouldn't be on the bad side of the law right now. I think he should have to pay for the door, lock, etc. but not go to jail.

Hope the judge isn't an ass.

Plus, how badass is it to kick down someone's door and charge in with a sword raised? I bet that guy's been waiting to do that for years.

I'm glad he DID something instead of nothing like so many people choosing to do these days. He probably should have knocked or at least called the cops instead.

I say pay for the damages and maybe a bit of community service. I agree with everyone that he sorta did the right thing, but he should have called the police (I realize no phone, but he couldn't have pounded on a neighbor's door for them to call the cops? Or ran to a store down the street?) That or pounded on the door of the apartment and demanded for the person to open up and explain themselves.

PS yeah it does sound kind of like a sick movie to me. That and who the hell turns up the volume that loud...unless the guy had his ear plastered to the guys wall and heard it faintly...but that isn't want it sounds like.

^ The sad thing is, even if he called the cops, the rape would have long been over before they got there. Yeah, maybe they'd catch the guy, but the poor girl still woulda gotten raped.
