My assessment is he was probably on alcohol or drugs.  :)
I agree!

Well the worst one I heard lately was the naked guy in Florida that the police shot to death because he was literally eating the face off of another guy.  Did you hear about that one?  I couldn't even bring myself to read the details of that one.  Too disgusting.  What kind of animal must that person have been?

From the news articles I have read, the reason behind this incident may be a new type of amphetamine called "bath salts."  I'm not sure if anything has been published that gave the results of any autopsy that many have been done.  As far as I can see, all of these drugs are evil.

I had heard/read shortly after this happened that they suspected that K-2 (synthetic marijuana) played a major part in this awful incident.
However, I just read a couple of days ago that when this individual's toxicity screen came back, it showed the only drug in his system was REAL marijuana, no other drugs whatsoever.

Continuing with the weird "zombie apocalypse" stories (as they have been called):

Police: Man Eats Dog Alive While High on Synthetic Marijuana

WACO (KWTX-TV)—A Waco, Texas man faces a charge of cruelty to a non-livestock animal in a bizarre incident in which he attacked and ate his family dog.  Michael Terron Daniel, 22,  claims he was high on the drug K-2, also known as synthetic marijuana, when the attack occured.

Police say Daniel chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog and then attacked a family dog, which he beat, strangled and then started to eat. Daniel was arrested Monday at his workplace without incident, police said.

The arrest stems from an incident on June 14th.  A caller to 911 reported that a man was “going crazy.” The man, who evidently assaulted several people at the home and told them he “was on a bad trip from ingesting K-2, ”got down “on his hands and knees and chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog,” according to witnesses, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

The man then took a medium-sized black dog onto the front porch of the home where he beat and strangled the animal and then “began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away,” Swanton said. The dog died at the scene.

Officers found Daniel sitting on the porch with blood on his hands, clothing and face, Swanton said. He was “initially incoherent and unresponsive,” Swanton said, and was taken to Providence Health Center by ambulance. While waiting for paramedics to arrive, Swanton said, Daniel asked officers to fight him or use a stun gun “to help him get off his bad trip,” Swanton said. Officers did neither, Swanton said.

K-2 is a form of synthetic marijuana. None of the chemicals the herbal product contains is a copy of anything found in cannabis, although the effects can be similar. Studies suggest synthetic cannabis use is associated with psychosis and the exacerbation of existing psychotic disorders. Extreme paranoia, hallucinations and violent behavior have also been reported.


COMMENTARY(?) not:
Twisted "humor" found re: this incident:

   "Man ingests K2, then ingests K9?"

This news story is about someone from a town just a few miles from ours:
(This is sort of long, but I tried to "condense" it a little without altering it or leaving out any of the unbelievable (humorous) parts)

Lake Wilson man arrested twice in five days for DWI By: Justine Wettschreck, Worthington Daily Globe

A Lake Wilson man managed to rack up a slew of alcohol-related charges in less than a week, with two separate arrests within five days.

Roy Wilbert Meier was 56 years old when he was arrested June 24 after running into the side of a convenience store with his truck. Several days later, June 29, after his 57th birthday, he was arrested again after allegedly taking a vehicle that was not his when he left another store.

According to criminal complaints, on June 24, an employee at Easy Street convenience store called authorities to report a red pickup truck had struck the building, then left the scene. Murray Co. deputy arrived @ the location, found a large dent in the building & Meier sitting in a pickup nearby. When Meier saw the deputy, he allegedly tried to start the vehicle, but the deputy reached in and removed the key.

Meier was removed from the truck, refused a breath test, & was placed in the squad car. When the deputy spoke to the employee, she said she didn't see the crash, someone had informed her, & she went to inspect the damage. The truck had been backed off the sidewalk, & while she was looking at the building, Meier came out of the store, got in the truck & drove away. She obtained the license number. (An eye-witness was interviewed.)

At the LE Center, Meier refused field sobriety tests, stating he had arthritis & couldn't do them. He took a gaze test & failed, & was unable to recite the alphabet.
When he was read the implied consent advisory, Meier swore repeatedly & stated he hadn't been driving the truck.
He said he wanted to consult an attorney, but refused to call anyone. He again refused a breath test, stating he did not drive.
He was taken to the Lyon County Jail, bail was set the next day. He was granted a public defender, & released. Conditions of release included no alcohol or drug use.

About 9:30 p.m. June 29, a woman in Currie called reporting a drunk driver had almost hit two little girls. She said it was a maroon car with a black hood, & relayed the license plate number. Several minutes later, dispatch received a 911 call from a woman who said Meier had left in her car, maroon with a black hood, instead of his own while at the gas station in Currie. A Minnesota State Patrol trooper said the car had been spotted south of Currie, heading back toward town.
When Murray County deputy arrived, he found Meier sitting in the car reported as stolen. Nearby was a small maroon car registered to Meier’s ex-wife. Meier allegedly smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech & was unsteady on his feet.

A deputy spoke to the ex-wife, & she said he had come to her residence the night before driving a van. He left in her car without her permission.

At the LE Center, Meier allegedly refused to cooperate, turning his back when asked about consent and attorneys. He refused a breath test & urinated on himself when the deputy left the room. He was taken to use the toilet, but then became upset & started demanding food, threatening to urinate on the floor if he was not fed immediately.

Meier was charged June 25 for the June 24 incident with test refusal, driving after cancellation, endangering public safety & driving while impaired. On July 2, he was charged with theft of a motor vehicle, test refusal, driving after cancellation & tampering with a motor vehicle. 

Meier is currently on probation, having pleaded guilty June 4 to trespass and disorderly conduct in Murray County District Court. He was ordered at that time to stay away from alcohol.

He has previous convictions in several counties for domestic assault, contempt of court, terroristic threats, theft, disorderly conduct, test refusal and aggravated driving while impaired.

"A pair of chinos has sparked a Twitter debate over what's funny and what's downright sexist. Emma Barnett, the digital media editor for the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph tweeted a pic of the washing label on a new pair of pants her boyfriend purchased. The label gives wearers basic cotton instructions, as well as the tip, "or give it to your woman, it's her job." The company that sold the pants, Madhouse Fashion, responded by tweeting that it had failed to proof the care instructions, which it says were "clearly meant to be a joke," and "will be more careful in the future."     http://now.msn.com/pants-washing-instructions-read-give-it-to-your-woman

COMMENTARY:  Apparently, there was a big hullabaloo on Twitter about a prank that was done at the chino manufacturer by people applying the care instruction label.  Some were up-in-arms, saying this was sexist.  It seems to me that some people need to get a life.  Why raise your blood pressure worrying about a care instruction label on a pair of pants?

No, in this age of being "PC", this is JUST the sort of thing A LOT of people are going to get upset about.

Are they wrong? I don't know......

Personally, I think things like that are funny, in their own twisted way. It doesn't offend me.

Also, the person who made the label didn't necessarily BELIEVE this was what you should do, or what should be done.....
They may have just been going for that "twisted" humor effect...

That is really disgusting - that's definitely some bizarre and weird news to read about.  I guess synthetic marijuana is pretty wicked from what I'm hearing?  I have to admit, though, your dog pic is very fitting to the occasion.

Heavy metal music saves Norwegian boy from wolves

A 13-year-old Norwegian boy avoided being attacked by wolves by playing a heavy metal song on his mobile phone, RIAN reports.

The incident took place in the central Norwegian municipality of Rakkestad. Four wolves, who appeared before the boy when he was returning home from school, were scared away by the noise coming from the boy's mobile phone, the Russian website said.

The song that saved the boy's life was by Megadeth.

The boy said he had been told that in order to avoid being attacked by wolves one should not run away from them but attack them.

Duroz, The story of the Norwegian boy reminded me of another story I read online today, which showed a picture of an infant being lulled to sleep by heavy metal music.  I did not get the details of the story, but it certainly surprised me.  I remembered the nights long ago when sometimes the only way to get my daughter to sleep was to take her for a ride in the car.  I am not a fan of heavy metal music, but I guess it has its uses.  And I guess the moral of your story is - always carry heavy metal music with you when you go for a walk in the woods.

LOL! I myself AM a fan of heavy metal music, but can't imagine getting a baby to nod off to it......(of course, that might have something to do with how LOUD it is when I listen to it..... ::) )

I also can't imagine how that kid thought so quickly of trying this - I would have done the "AAAAHH!! Panic!! Freeze!!" thing....
and then been attacked by the wolves.

 Hey, did anybody seen on yahoo new about a baby sitter boyfriend put a I think 1 year old baby in a commercial washing machine. I was so upset when I saw the video of it. They said they were play pic a boo with the baby but they close the door and the door locked and the machine turned on you could see the baby tumbling in the machine. The good thing is that nothing really bad happened to the baby. I hope they go to jail, for child abuse.  ::)

Naked mom found eating ice cream, after leaving children in crashed car

HOUSTON, TX (KPRC) — A woman in Texas is faces child endangerment charges after police say she left her children following a wreck, only to allegedly walk to a nearby drug store where police said she was found naked and eating ice cream.

Stephanie Dillard, 34, is charged with child endangerment after police say her car collided with a Houston bus in June.  The Texas mom’s three children, ages 5, 12 and 16, were in the car when the collision occurred.  Officials say all three suffered minor injuries.  The 5-year-old had a large gash over one eye, officials said.

Police told KPRC-TV in Houston, instead of waiting around after the wreck, Dillard got out the car in the middle of the road and walked away, leaving the children alone at the scene.  She allegedly walked to a nearby CVS drug store and started taking off her clothes as she ate ice cream.

Following the incident, the children were released to the custody of a grandmother.  Investigators said Dillard put up a fight as they tried arresting her.

Police said they have not yet figured out what caused Dillard’s strange behavior.

The Texas mom is being held in the Harris County Jail with bond set at $2,000 for endangering a child, and $5,000 bond for accident involving injury or death.

"COMMENTARY": Maybe this woman should get together with the guy who crashed into the mall and started trying on clothes.
They could go clothes shopping, and then go out for ice cream afterwards.  ::)

(While the grandmother who they released the kids to takes steps to insure the kids stay in someone else's care PERMANENTLY)

Two girls attacked by rabid beaver

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – “I’ve never had a fear of lakes. I’ve never been afraid of anything in the lake,” said Wendy Radnovich.

That changed for Wendy when her two little girls, Alyssa and Bella were bitten by a rabid beaver.
“I was just picturing the worst. I was thinking large, they have big teeth. I know they can chew through wood,” she said.

Radnovich said the beaver attacked the girls Sunday when the children were vacationing with their father at Lake Anna in Louisa County. Both girls were in waist deep in the water when the rabid beaver appeared, she said.

“We were all playing in the water, and so it just sneaked up on me and bit me,” said 11-year-old Alyssa.

She said the animal latched on to her upper thigh, and left a three-inch bite wound.

Then the beaver bit 8-year-old Bella’s leg — three times.

Radnovich said her ex-brother in law shot beaver with a pellet gun, then killed it with a knife.

“This is definitely the worst thing they’ve ever been through,” she said.

Bella said she won’t ever swim in a lake again.

“Because I don’t’ know if there could be another beaver or another crazy animal in the water,” she said.

Since the attack girls have had one round of rabies shots. There are four more rounds of rabies shots to go.

“I used to think they [beavers] were cute little funny things, but now I don’t like them at all,” Bella said.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first instance of a rabid beaver ...

One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.
