Hamden Cops: A Co-Worker Uses A Machete to End a Dispute

The victim avoided serious injuries.

A dispute between two Pep Boys employees allegedly led one of them to use a machete to end the disagreement, Hamden police told the New Haven Register. 

Marcus Rochester, 28, of Glenbrook Avenue, is accused of hitting a co-worker in the neck with a machete, the Register reports. 

The 42-year-old victim suffered injuries but they would have been more serious if the blade were sharper, police said.

Damn Right- "They have M16s and are locked and loaded. These troops know how to shoot and kill and I expect they will." That sounds more like something you would hear on the front-lines of Afghanistan or Iraq... not in your own backyard. Unfortunately though, that's exactly what happened... You see... those words weren't spoken by a general, captain, or any other solider... No, these were the words uttered by a politician, on American soil... against American citizens... Louisiana's then governor Kathleen Blanco spoke them in response to the sickening bloodshed that filled the streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Troops were ordered to fire on civilians to keep people "under control." This included anyone and everyone who refused to be shipped off to the FEMA camps... ALL THEY NEED IS A CRISIS. REMEMBER THAT.
