    Police: Woman Chases Kids With Samurai Sword
    Amanda Harris Faces Numerous Charges
    Wayne Harrison, Senior News Editor

    POSTED: 10:15 am MDT September 28, 2007

    EAGLE, Colo. -- An Eagle woman accused of chasing a group of Hispanic children with a sword faces a number of charges, including ethnic intimidation, after allegedly calling them "illegal spics," according to police.

    Amanda Jane Darling Harris, 21, allegedly chased the children, aged 9 to 15, with an 18-inch samurai sword because they were playing in a parking lot of the Villa apartments, according to a police report.

    Police investigated the incident on Sept. 20, and Harris was jailed until she posted a $3,500 bond this week.

    According to the police report, the teens said Harris yelled at the children, "If you're scared, then you're guilty." That is when they said she chased them with the sword.

    One boy said Harris grabbed him and held the sword to his throat, telling him he "needed to stop causing her problems."

    A girl told police that Harris chased and grabbed her and threatened to cut off her ponytail.

    Harris chased the other five children through the parking lot, brandishing the sword, according to her arrest affidavit.

    The children told police that Harris called them "little f****ing wetbacks" and told them to go back to their own country.

    Arresting officers said Harris stated that she should have hurt one of the "illegals" if she knew she was going to go to jail over it.

    Harris was arrested in her third-floor apartment on suspicion of menacing -- use of a deadly weapon, misdemeanor third-degree assault with a weapon, ethnic intimidation and harassment.

    Harris is employed by Pooh Corner Preschool in Minturn, Colo., according to the arrest report. A spokeswoman for the preschool said she couldn't comment on Harris' current employment status.

    I'd have been in fear for my life or the lives the children she was chasing.

    I'd laugh, then take her sword.

    Of course, I'm ethnic looking, so she might try to chase me.. in which case, we all know how that would turn out.

    I did not realize that "ethnic intimidation" was a specific crime. Here I'd think that the assault-related charges would cover it handily.

    wouldn't you get in trouble for brandishing since you pulled to intimidate and didn't shoot/wasn't life threatening...

    nope, since if you see someone chasing people with a sword, that probably is covered under being in fear for someone else's life.

    are you not allowed to draw and not fire if you think you or someone else might be in immediate danger?

    From what I understand or it's made out to be No you're not. You're not a cop so therefore you can only pull your weapon when you feel your life is threatened so just pulling it to scare the lady from continuing (which is how that was worded) would be brandishing.

    Example 2 nights ago my friend was downtown pittsburgh and 2 nig nogs stole a ladies purse. he took off up the alley and tripped the guy kneed him into the pavement and grabbed the purse back. he had his sig on him but didn't have it pulled and apparently he would of been in shit had he pulled it out/made the nig nog aware he had one or ran after him with it in hand...

    Thats not exactly a great comparison....no weapons involved. What if the naggers had stolen the purse at gunpoint?

    MTech, it is legal to draw if you also think that someone else's life is in danger, and I would say seeing someone being chased by a crazy bitch with a sword counts :dunno:
