The three teenagers in hooded black outfits were scampering over rooftops, climbing trees "just like a squirrel," and breaking into houses and cars, police said.

But they weren't quite as slick as their Japanese ninja heroes.

Earlier this summer, an officer chased one of the wannabes across a school rooftop, but the youth leaped into a nearby tree, said police Chief Ken Lewis.

Breaking branches on the way down, "he gave a yelp of pain," and then he scrambled away, Lewis said.

Last week, after months of investigation, police arrested three teens, two 15 and one 16, and seized stolen jewelry, burglary tools, a map of the city and several black ninja suits with hoods and climbing spikes.

The parents of one told police their son complained of an injury about the time of the rooftop chase, Lewis said.

"I believe that's our roof-gliding ninja," said Lewis.

Haha, nice. If that were England, they would have banned ninja suits because they're evil and carry connotations of burglary or some equally as stupid reasoning.

It happens all the time here, unfortunately. Knife amnesties - I ask you. How many people who intend to use them for crime are going to hand them in? They're trying to ban Katanas now, not swords in general, only Katanas, because they're eeeevvviiiiilllll.
Pathetic.

Wow, thats pretty bad. I thought we were losing our liberties here in the US.

As the saying goes, "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns". :dead:

What about a no-Dachi. it is not a katana. Two handed even, it is the equivalent of a Claymore, are they banning Claymores too?:cry:
