Both of my (adult) brothers play with lightsabers. We all grew up addicted to Star Wars, but all of us—I’m pretty sure—understand that lightsaber technology is not yet actually available, and that if it were, using it on innocent toy store shoppers and the police force would definitely not make you a Jedi.
Such is not the case for David Allen Campbell, however, who has been ordered spend forty-five days in jail—and to get a mental health evaluation, which seems to me the more important issue—because:
Portland police say Canterbury had a Star Wars light saber in each hand as he swung at three customers last Dec. 14 at a Toys R Us store. He carried the light sabers outside the store and swung at police.
Apparently, he forgot that the Force shouldn’t be used against the force.
