Don’t Bring a Machete to a Gunfight

Did he think he was in New Jersey? This is Florida, where the population is heavily armed. Man armed with machete shot, killed outside Florida bar.

He was asked to leave. He went to his car and got a machete.

“He brandished a machete and went after a group of people,” police spokesman Chris Swinson told the Herald.

Witnesses told WSVN the man got the machete from his car and that he had started to chase a person when another bar patron shot him.

He died at a local hospital.

He was asked to leave. He could have driven home. He could have gone to an all-night diner. He chose to go after someone with a machete. He lost that argument.

  1. I remember a news story while I was in Miami a while back. Apparently this guy walks into a bar and announces to everyone, “I’m the baddest MF’er in here”. 3 patrons swiveled on their bar stools and promptly shot him to death, got up and walked out.
