But a select few will take you back to the Middle Ages.
Three men who broke into a home Thursday morning on the city's East side were confronted by a homeowner with a sword, San Antonio police said.(from KSAT-12)
The homeowner, Robert Suniga, told police the men said they were looking for his son.
"They were saying that they were SAPD. They were saying they had a search warrant. They were saying that he raped their little sister," Suniga said.
Suniga didn't buy the mens' story. Instead of handing over his son, Suniga armed himself for a fight. He went to his bedroom to get a sword that a friend gave him as a gift, telling him to use it to protect his family.
