John Doe Blown Away! - Part 6 of my "Shoot First, Questions Never" series

Apologies for neglecting my series of stories involving "righteous kills" scored against people with no common sense.

One such muppet, an unnamed man in New Orleans was observed by National Guard members who saw him about 1 a.m. holding a hacksaw while riding a bicycle through the impoverished Lower Ninth Ward, which has been largely vacant since Hurricane Katrina. The Guard has been patrolling less populated areas of the city since June to allow the depleted police force to concentrate on areas where people have returned since the hurricane.

Right: National Guardsmen

"As the guardsmen approached the man, he produced a knife, threatening the military men and then threw a piece of broken glass at them, cutting a sergeant's arm," said Sgt. Joe Narcisse, a police spokesman in a news release. "The man ran into a rundown house, when police and guardsmen entered the house and approached the man, he pointed a BB gun that looked like a rifle at them. A Guardsman shot the man several times".

"Homicide detectives are investigating the shooting, but the guardsman, whose name was not released, appears to have acted appropriately, said Sgt. Narcisse "The dead man did not carry identification" he added.

Sounds more like a suicide investigation that a homicide...

Absolutley. Only someone with a death wish would go against the might of the National Guard.
