Things not to do: The video is up at News-Press. They shot him with a taser, and he knocked away the wires with the blade. Impressive work by the officers to subdue him without any shots being fired. A friend speculated that perhaps the man was trying to commit suicide by cop, his actions certainly don’t seem rational. Thank goodness nobody was hurt!
UPDATE: Machete man apparently told police he was there to kill someone or “be killed.” Sounds like he had suicide by cop in mind. Scary stuff.
