Surprised we haven't had anything posted about this yet.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/05/26/2818832/naked-man-shot-killed-on-macarthur.html

Quote
One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp, police said.

The bloodshed began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building. Witnesses said a woman saw the two men fighting and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.

The officer, who has not been identified, approached and saw that the naked man was actually chewing the other man’s head, according to witnesses. The officer ordered the naked man to back away, and when he continued the assault, the officer shot him. The attacker continued to eat the man, despite being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.

Miami police were on the scene, which was just south of The Miami Herald building on Biscayne Boulevard. The naked man who was killed lay face down on the pedestrian walkway just below the newspaper’s two-story parking garage. Police requested The Herald’s video surveillance tapes.

The other man was transported to the hospital with critical injuries, according to police. Their identities were not released.

The incident, which came as crowds descended upon South Beach for the annual Urban Beach Week hip-hop festival, snarled traffic on the causeway for several hours.

This is no zombie attack, just more evidence of the decline of our nation's fabric brought on by hip-hop culture.[/Naso]

Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

I have not been in Miami for four years, and I have long ago decided that I would never, ever go back.

Naw, just FLA. Seriously. Here's some news headlines from the local paper: "Man with gun assaults women to cut ahead in fast-food line, police say"; "Airplane door detached, fell on Broward County golf course"; Man accused of trying to steal clock off police station wall"; Child brings 3 ounces of pot to school for show-and-tell, police say"; "Man sticks up Bradenton bank armed with medical syringe". These are all from the last two days.

I love how everyone assumed it was PCP, given that it's usually not even that dangerous to people around you (Most people don't lash out unless they were violent anyway). Most likely just some psycho.

Indeed you are correct...there is a reason Fark has a "Florida" tag and no other state....there is a reason Adam Carolla's podcast has a bit about "Florida or Germany" (where they give the basic facts of a story and you're supposed to guess whether it happened in Florida or Germany).  I spend two years in Florida (the red neck riviera part) so I understand.

You don't have to; it's the largest newspaper in the Southeast (Tampa Bay Times) and thus has its own website here. The current headline is, of course, "Miami Police Shoot Naked Man Found Eating Face of Another Man".

They're now blaming LSD. Apparently, no-one in the police force has any clue what LSD actually does.

I'd heard they were blaming cocaine that causes one to remove one's clothes.

Cocaine is more likely than LSD - I've never heard of anyone having a violent freakout on LSD.

I do not believe that this happened. I think this story is a bald faced lie.
