Don’t take a machete to a gunfight

Some people are destined to be come organ donors.

Eventually Darwin claims his marks, like this guy who took a machete to a gunfight with a cop.

Authorities say a California Highway Patrol officer shot and killed a 17-year-old who attacked him with a machete.

CHP Capt. Adam Jager said Friday that the officer stopped to help the boy, who had hit a telephone pole in Humboldt County, when the teen attacked him. The officer sustained major injuries and is being treated in a Northern California hospital.

Jager says that the officer put up his left arm to block the machete; his hand and face were injured.

Jager says the officer shot the teen, locked himself in his patrol car and called for backup.

Another officer arrived later, finding the teen lying naked next to his car and acting erratically.

The Eureka Times-Standard (http://bit.ly/1DVeozS ) reports that the teen died at the scene.    

The Mythbusters have tested this.

    “Jager says the officer shot the teen, locked himself in his patrol car and called for backup.

    My question is “How / when did this machete-wielding teenager become naked in this story?”

    …was the policeman named Harrison Ford by any chance?

    I wonder if the teenager is black?

    if so, prepare for the Al Sharpton victimhood roadshow to turn up in town!

      Just had an email with a black guy in Fergusson holding a plac ard “No mother should have to worry that her son would be shot when he goes out to rob a store”.

    I think I would act erratically too, if I had been shot. Would probably think twice about stripping though.

    If this was NZ we would be busy launching 3 enquiries as to whether that nasty cop was justified in shooting that nice young man that hit him with the machete
