On Monday, police officers with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in Florida found themselves in the middle of a heinous crime as a man stabbed his supposed friend over 40 times while they stood inside a convenience store. Grabbing knives, scissors, and anything he could find, the individual, identified as Edmund Clarke, hacked away at the victim, trying to behead him. All caught on surveillance video, the police finally arrived, taking the 36-year-old into custody, but not before the suspect spent several minutes attacking the victim.
As for the victim, apparently, he was the son of an elderly man whom the suspect cared for. The man and son knew each other for nearly a decade with no problems. Before the altercation inside the store, Clarke simply asked the victim to go get something to eat with him. According to a witness, Clarke started to act strange as they approached the store, stating that he was experiencing hallucinations and being targeted by some known source. That happened shortly before Clarke turned on the victim and started to assault him.

Locals reacted to the news about the stabbing, writing, “I still can’t wrap myself around this senseless, horrific crime. We are in that very store getting subs for our boat regularly. Prayers to the victim as well as the BSM staff who had to witness this and run for their lives.”
Online users noted, “This is a perfect example of why every state should have capital punishment on the books. Excellent work, guys. May God bless and protect you and all our men and women in blue.” Another one added, “Show the prosecutors and jury this video this completely uncalled for unexpected heinous act deserves a lifetime in prison…”

Sounds like a psychotic break. Probably induced by some Rx antidepressant. But we can’t blame Big Pharma or the prescribing doctors who get kickbacks from Big Pharma because they save more lives than they destroy…
another black on white crime?
Possessed… Get used to seeing attacks as individuals act strange as was described…
The left will have a million and one excuses for why this bag of shit should not be put down like the rabid dog he is!!!
Probably some shit they put in the vax , 5G frequency . I would say we all have to be on guard for violent attacks of this nature ..
No shotgun in back of store?? tsk tsk
Another extremely violent black privilege crime.

They started with their “Knockout Game”, and they have all intentions of escalating it to his “Murder Game”, and they have all intentions to escalate it to more horrendous crimes. Learned behavior. Hatred planted in their hearts and minds by fraudulent “Social Justice Warriors” and “Activists”, such as BLM, ACLU, ADL. They teach the problem, they teach the solution. Wind their demoralized masses up and send the off to do the dirty work they want them to do. All for their selfish nefarious gains. They don’t care about any side of the arguments. They buy themselves mansions in Malibu. They are lesbians who adopt little girls and homosexuals who adopt little boys, then psychologically manipulating those children to do things they don’t really want to do and will regret, hell they even do it to their natural children they give birth to. And people think such monsters have any altruism in them.
I think Florida should reactivate “Old Sparky”, the electric chair at Florida State prison. I firmly believe if there are death penalties for murder and other capital crimes, felons would be less inclined to do these horrible things.
