“A homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre, vicious attack faces a bigger threat from infection than from the injuries themselves, according to experts on facial reconstruction,” ajc.comreports. Yeah, “infection.” That says “communicable” to me. And we all know what THAT means: the zombie apocalypse is here. Need more evidence that the undead are alive and well and hungry for your flesh? “It’s not clear why Poppo was attacked Saturday afternoon by 31-year-old Rudy Eugene alongside a busy highway. Police have released few details about the attack, but surveillance video from a nearby building shows Eugene pulling Poppo from the shade, stripping and pummeling him before appearing to hunch over and then lie on top of him.” And then eating him. But wait! There’s more!
A witness described Eugene ripping at Poppo’s face with his mouth and growling at a Miami police officer who ordered him to get off the homeless man. The officer shot and killed Eugene.
Or did he? Head shots people. Head shots. And remember: it could be ANYONE.
Eugene’s younger brother said that he was a sweet person who didn’t drink much or use hard drugs.
“I wish they didn’t kill him so he could tell us exactly what happened. This is very uncharacteristic of him,” said the brother, who asked for anonymity to protect his family from harassment.
Police union officials representing the officer said the scene on the MacArthur Causeway was one of the goriest they had ever seen.
“He had his face eaten down to his goatee. The forehead was just bone. No nose, no mouth,” said Sgt. Armando Aguilar, president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police.
There is, in fact, a video of the attack. ALL of the attack. It WAS posted at miamiherald.com, with a headline announcing the fact. Not now. Now it’s off the site and the YouTube version is just the long shot. What does THAT tell you?
