this is bullcrap. the 2 guys that were attacked got charged. bethlehm cops are terrible. they have nothing better to do than screw everyone over.
I would bet the Mcall does not have the whole story. When someone is attacked, they are typically not arrested because they are a victim who did not provoke any attack. I would imagine that this fight happened as a result of some continuing altercation between these people, and were most likely not very cooperative with the police when they arrived. If you check the address where it happened, 17 W 2nd St....Starters Riverport, a place that has had continuous problems with fighting and disorderly patrons. Think before you write.....I don't recall victims being arrested for defending themselves before. Think back to the convenience store clerks on Easton Ave who beat that dude with a bat when he tried to rob them with a knife....the cops were practically patting them on the back for defending themselves. Trust me,these jerks were most likely all wrong.

If we outlaw swords, only outlaws will have swords.
And battle re-enactors, collectors, museums, people who had them before the ban, swordmakers and probably swordswallowers.
STAY THE COURSE!

Ok, but how many of the sword owners out there actually know how to use them and arent just chopping wildly?
