(Newser) – Yesterday's line of the day from the crime blotter involved a disassembled gun hidden inside a bunny, a bear, and Mickey Mouse. The Miami Herald may have topped it today with a lede spotted by BoingBoing.

  • "A Florida man stabbed his computer with a Samurai sword after being accused of downloading kiddie porn. He was in his underwear when he did it."
The 21-year-old's assault on the hard drive, however, failed to damage the potential evidence, and he faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted, notes the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Sad irony: The same suspect once earned police praise by defending his mother from a domestic assault, using a Samurai sword.
