Suicidal man calls cops, threatens them with a sword, gets shot

Jonathan Martis was depressed. His girlfriend had recently miscarried. In a deranged move, he called the Omaha police to his house.

Officers commanded Martis to drop the sword, but he refused and advanced on them, said Officer Michael Pecha, a police spokesman.

An officer fired a Taser that appeared to have no effect on Martis. The costumed man continued to advance and was shot by an officer, Pecha said. He was struck in the torso.

He was also dressed like a pirate, which is something he liked to do, and apparently how he wanted to go out. Luckily, the shot did not kill him.

The suspected pirates ships stopped and then turned away. The pirates could only lament their littleness before the vast number of dolphins. The spectacular scene continued for a while.

Hmmm… This is the official Chinese Government’s report, so one should be skeptical. Oh but they have a photo:
