I, like most people were enjoying the Memorial Day weekend when my wife comes up to me and says that she read something online about a man in Florida who the police had to shoot because he was eating another man’s face off! My first reaction? Holy crap! The zombie apocalypse has begun!
I decided to run to the computer and do a quick Google search for the post. Sure enough I found several that wrote about it on Saturday May 26th! Here is a piece from The Miami Herald:
According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away.Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.
The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.
The article goes on to say:
Police theorize the attacker might have been suffering from "cocaine psychosis," a drug-induced craze that bakes the body internally and often leads the affected to strip naked to try and cool off.
We all know the truth though don’t we? Once a victim is bitten, it is only a matter of time before they die and turn into a flesh eating zombie. The victim in this case was flown to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Why? I’m not sure because we all know there is no cure for a zombie bite, and it’s only a matter of time before he turns as well.
Speaking of zombies, be sure to check out episode 17 of Tech Chop where they test a $50 sword to see if it will be effective and durable enough in the zombie apocalypse which apparently has already begun!
