|Rudy Eugene, dubbed the Miami Zombie by the international media was shot and killed by Miami-Dade Police after a horrific incident.|
This is one of those stories that attract conservatives and white supremacists. Another wacky incident that involves Black men. An incident that begs for conservative agitation.
And of course the snide comment: "This is one of [Obama's] sons!"
Incidents like this makes our society the scapegoats of the nation.
What could be one of the most disturbing cases in the history of the Miami-Dade County Police is the 31 year old man who was shot and killed after he ripped off another man's face.
The police identify the suspect as Rudy Eugene of North Miami, Florida.
Apparently the person was on some powerful drugs when he attacked a homeless man. As he was beating him down, I assume he went for the face and then scratch or punch off the skin. Then he went forth to eating it.
The video here comes from The Tampa Bay Times/ABC News
Eugene and his victim were both naked when a person riding his bicycle spotted the horrible scene. The person called the police and they arrived at the point where the incident was concluding. The Miami-Dade police had order the man to stop but I guess it didn't comprehend with a man eating pieces of the victim's face.
The victim lost his most of his face. They have him in extreme critical condition.
Eugene has no criminal record, according to the Miami Herald.
The Miami Herald reports that the macabre scene unfolded about 2 p.m. Saturday on the MacArthur Causeway’s off-ramp to Biscayne Boulevard just south of the Miami Herald building. A Road Ranger spotted the men and shouted on his loudspeaker for the naked attacker to back away.
One witness said he was riding his bicycle on the MacArthur when he saw a man tearing off pieces of the victim’s flesh with his mouth. After an officer approached, Larry Vega told a Fox News Miami affiliate, “The guy just stood, his head up like that, with pieces of flesh in his mouth. And he growled.”
Eugene left behind few clues as to what could have prompted the attack. According to court records, he married Jenny Ductant on Dec. 15, 2005, in Hollywood. The marriage ended in divorce after a little more than two years.
“I wouldn’t say he had mental problem but he always felt like people was against him . .. No one was for him, everyone was against him,” his ex-wife told WPLG.
He had just one arrest to suggest serious violence. Miami Beach police arrested him on a battery charge when he was 16, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The charge was later dropped.
He was arrested seven other times over five years. Court records show that one was for misdemeanor battery, one was for vending near a school, one was for trespassing and four involved marijuana.
The last case came in September 2009. In January, the charge was dropped.
During Saturday’s attack, an officer approached and told Eugene to get off his victim, but Eugene ignored the order and kept chewing, even after the officer shot him once.
The police officer who shot and killed Eugene has not been identified. I don't blame him. That's a traumatic incident that merits a silence among those in law enforcement.
So the images that are posted below are disturbing. Why I put these at the bottom is because some haven't seen the gory pictures yet, and I want to make sure that you don't freak out about it!
This incident has went viral. International media is now covering it and I assure you that it's the talk of Miami.
But you got to understand the issue here. This person was either on LSD or bath salts. A substance that immediately gives the person an hallucinating high and it can create a dangerous situation for those who ingest these substances in them.
There's another controversial incident in which a Maryland man ingested bath salts and went forth to kill his roommate. The man admitted that he ate the roommate's brains and heart. And recently Interpol is looking for a Canadian man who ate his "trick" and then mailed body parts to lawmakers.
A warning, these are disturbing pictures:
