Three men charged in connection with a violent home invasion last Saturday have been released from custody on sureties of $25,000 each and on the condition they rid their homes of all swords and daggers.
In addition to the standard ban on possessing weapons and explosives, justice of the peace Dan Stevely told the trio yesterday he would reconsider his order releasing them if they were not prepared to steer clear of even the ceremonial versions of the traditional Sikh kirpan, or sword....
"I'll make it really simple," Stevely replied tartly. "By the time they get home, they (kirpans) had better be missing. They are not to reside in any residence that contains swords or kirpans." [Link]
