There is some weird and scary stuff going on out there, and if you’re an end of the world enthusiast, you may take these events as signs that the world is truly coming to an end. In movies and on TV, “zombies” are usually a part of the “doomsday” scenario and lately, there have been more than a few real-life stories of people going ape sh*t and eating another human being’s face.
These face-eating attacks have occurred all over the nation and in close succession. On May 26, police responded to an incident where a naked man was discovered literally devouring the face of a homeless man on a Miami highway. The crazed man was shot once by police, but continued to eat over 80 percent of the man’s face. The police eventually shot the assailant several times, killing him.
Most recently, on May 29 in Baltimore, police were called to a residence when a man found what he believed to be a human head and two hands inside metal tins in the basement of his house. It turns out that his son, a 21-year-old Morgan State University student (pictured on the right), confessed to police that he had murdered his roommate, and according to charging documents, admitted to eating the victim’s heart and portions of his brain.
On the same day in California, a man was arrested after he got into a physical altercation with his cousin and bit his nose off.
Prior to the Miami, Baltimore and California attacks, an Illinois man was arrested for domestic battery after he bit the cheek of an 18-year-old woman.
Those face-eating attacks were all this week! So has the “zombie apocalypse” begun? Are we nearing the end of days? I have no idea – but I know one thing for sure, there are some crazy a** people out there! In the words of Antoine Dotson, “Hide your kids, Hide Your wife”…there may be a zombie lurking in the shadows!
