FOUL LANGUAGE WARNING! ~ EXTREME MULTIPLE "F BOMB" LANGUAGE.
At a Fresno gas station, a 54-year-old man yelled that he was Jesus Christ before ramming his truck into a PG&E worker, pinning him against a utility truck. When a nearby woman came to the victim's aide, the driver smothered her in a bear hug while screaming about some racist, Jesusy agenda to rid the world of black people.
That's when a hitchhiker – identified simply as Kai – sprang in with a hatchet.
The raving racist assailant has been identified as Jett Simmons McBride of Tacoma, WA. The PG&E worker was hospitalized with two broken legs, but is in good spirits and hopes McBride "gets the help he needs."
This can put a lot of scenarios through your head, including, "What if you come across a guy who is whacking somebody's head in with a hatchet?"
"Americans have the will to resist because you have weapons. If you don't have a gun, freedom of speech has no power." - Yoshimi Ishikawa

You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
"What if you come across a guy who is whacking somebody's head in with a hatchet?"
Try not to look like a stack of firewood?

He has some brass ones me thinks. That's pretty hardcore to kill someone with a hatchet.
Up close, ugly, and as personal as it gets. It's not the weapon, it's the man.
That is "preparedness" in action.

And on a side note, a while back I posted a video with much milder language. That thread got shut down for not being family friendly. Do we have a new standard?

Apparently the assailant was not killed, but only knocked out. Here is a little more lucid version of the story: Tacoma man jailed in Fresno | Local News - The News Tribune
Can you imagine being the officer who responded to this incident and trying to make sense of this guys story? Fortunately there were witnesses.
4. As a family-friendly forum, we ask that you keep your language clean, exactly as we hope you would when addressing respected elders. Creative workarounds (the use of special characters to replace some letters) on language are not allowed. Violators of this rule will be warned once; those repeatedly breaking this rule will have their accounts permanently revoked. NOTE: Links to off site material will be held to our family-friendly standard, as well. However, out in the real world, it's not so sanitary, when posting a video where it is intended to be used as a teaching tool, you have zero control over what other people say on the video. Whether it's a firearms instructor who may say a few bad words during the course of instruction, or whether you're posting a video surveillance tape of a violent crime being committed and there happens to audio which has people using foul language. The staff feels we shouldn't lose that valuable information because of the bad language rule. A conspicuous warning posted along with the video should be sufficient to satisfy those who have delicate ears. NSFW should be in the thread title and a text warning regarding the language should be included above the link to the video in a post. THIS ALLOWANCE IS ONLY FOR INFORMATION THAT IS RELEVANT TO OUR FOCUS. It is not a pass to use profanity in posts or other usage of profanity on the forum.

Interesting interview for sure
