It looks like any weekend you stay away from horrid news, Monday brings on a freak show. This time, Miami delivers the scary news, as police shot down a naked man that was eating another man’s face. From the looks of it, Miami seems to be the place where the zombie apocalypse starts.
With such frightening news at hand, the people scrutinous about zombies are going to think twice when they hear someone crying “Zombie!”. The case of the naked attacker being killed while eating another man’s face went all over the news and the media has found another issue to start some paranoia. If you saw “zombie apocalypse” in Google Trends, believe us when we tell you it’s not linking to some movie trailer.
The truth is that when it comes to Miami’s recent horrid event, it’s pretty hard not to be disgusted by it. In the end, in Western societies cannibalism is an act highly looked down upon. While this is still happening throughout some countries of Africa, when it comes to the United States, cannibalism is something we’ve heard about only in horror movies.
The Miami Herald described the event as best as they could. In the end, such events don’t occur too often throughout the time to have journalists taught in school how to deal with it. According to the media source, the first report of “a naked man chewing on another man’s face” came from a road ranger. The second witness, a woman, alerted a police officer.
The police officer called off the attacker but he got no reaction. “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”. Witness accounts say the officer fired about six shots.
Although the police says that the naked attacker was suffering from some sort of cocaine induced psychosis, one cannot help wonder if everything we’ve seen in Hollywood movies isn’t about to unfold on us. Plus, given one witness’s account, it’s hard to not think about zombie apocalypse unfolding just ahead of the annual Urban Beach Week hip-hop festival.
Larry Vega saw the gruesome event. He told WSVN-TV that the attacker “just stood…with pieces of flesh in his mouth and he growled”. He added it was “one of the most gruesome things I’ve ever seen in my life”.
