I have heard that but from what I've heard it is a myth. The only time that it would happen is if you kept a larg one in a small tank and agravated it. Also I want a small one like the green mantis shrimp.

mantis shrimp can actually be very nice lil pets and yes can be quite agressive but if you give them plenty of places to hide and food they can be also docile. as far as breaking glass well a large one in a small tank could probuly do that yes as you said pretzelsz but a small one wont. a friend of mine had a mantis in a 10g nano reef tank and it did pick at the silicone till the tank leaked for some reason. also if you plan to rearange anything you put in the tank you always have to keep your eye on the lil guy cause they hurt like hell if they get ya. as far as feeding my friend put a ghost shrimp every 2 days or so and he seemed to kill and eat it no problem. imho i wouldnt get one though cause they normaly move around at night and if ya want something you can enjoy watching this wouldnt be it... try a coral banded shrimp very prity and peacfull if you add a fish later on eats alge so easy and cheap to feed.
