From the Miami Herald:
And everyone over the age of 10 knows that the shooting and the incident that led up to it took place in Miami...not Miami Beach.
Naked man killed by Police near MacArthur Causeway was ‘eating’ face off victim
It was a scene as creepy as a Hannibal Lecter movie.
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 Saturday, police said.
The horror 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.
According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away. Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.
The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.
But that's not stopping one so-called "journalist" from fudging the facts - and the geography - surrounding a story that took place on the mainland side of the causeway in Miami.
After all, when you're right-wing blogger Matt Drudge, why let a few pesky facts get in the way of a sexy South Beach headline?
Here's how Drudge - himself a former Miami Beach resident - is playing the story today:
