America going downhill? What on Earth would make you say that? One naked man eating the face off another naked man then growling like a wild animal while being shot by police, you say? Ok fine – that’s a pretty compelling argument.
“I’m trying to have some hope here,” Glenn said to the radio audience this morning.
“Did you see the cannibal in Florida? I mean, okay, we’ve got cannibals! We have cannibals on the street,” he said. “Naked cannibals eating each other. I love this: And he growled like a dog. He’s a cannibal. When did we start having problems with cannibals?”
Pat added, “They shot him as he was eating someone’s face. And it wasn’t enough. They had to shoot him, what, five more times?”
“Said they could barely recognize him as a human. His face is so badly disfigured,” Glenn said.
The CBS station in Miami explains:
Miami police are still tight-lipped about the man they shot and killed on the MacArthur Causeway Saturday afternoon, but new details back claims they had no choice: the naked man they shot was trying to chew the face off another naked man, and refused to obey police orders to stop his grisly meal, which one source now claims included his victim’s nose and eyeballs.
Surveillance video taken from security cameras at the nearby Miami Herald building show a police officer arrive on the scene, appear to be startled by the spectacle of two naked men lying on the street, and draw his service weapon. It appears that the officer shot one of the men, but it was difficult to tell in the video.
The bizarre shooting happened shortly after 2 p.m., when police responded to a 911 call about two naked men fighting on a bike path along the Causeway, which was packed with traffic on a busy holiday weekend.
The supposed cause of the incident? Drugs. CBS reports, “The president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Armando Aguilar believes the entire incident is the fault of a new drug trend that has led to similar incidents. Emergency room doctors at Jackson Memorial Hospital said they too have seen a major increase in cases linked to the street drug called ‘bath salts’ or the new LSD.”
The cannibal has been identified by officials as Rudy Eugene, who they believe was homeless.
It’s possible the incident could have been something like the below:
