Either life is imitating art, or the dreaded Zombie Apocalypse is upon us.
In what could be the synopsis for an issue of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead with Tony Moore from Image Comics, a Miami police officer shot and killed a deranged man on Saturday afternoon - May 26th - who was eating another man's face and refused to obey police orders to stop. Police responding to a 911 call about two naked men fighting on a bike path along the busy MacArthur Causeway came upon the grisly scene of one man gnawing on the face of the other. After the attacker was killed, the victim was rushed to the hospital, reportedly with virtually no face left. The head of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Armando Aguilar, told the local CBS-TV station that drugs are behind the attack, saying, "We have seen, already, three or four cases that are exactly like this where some people have admitted taking LSD and it's no different than cocaine psychosis." In those cases, he said the people have all taken their clothing off and been extremely violent with what seemed to be super-human strength, even using their jaws as weapons. Emergency room Doctor Paul Adams agreed, telling the station similar cases have showed up in the ER from people using the drug known as "bath salts."
Remember Rule #1: DOUBLE TAP.
And of course the Tim Allen principal applies, too ~
Authorities are continuing to look for witnesses to the incident. See more of the story by clicking here.
Of course, now that CBS' CSI: Miami has been cancelled, and there haven't been any recent CSI:Miami comics from IDW, we can only assume that in some instances Miami may close after all...
