There are some stories that just beg to be told, this is one of them. Most of these kinds of stories come from local news sources, where a story might not be important or exciting enough to make it to national levels, but they’re off-beat enough to make them fun.
In Fresno, California, a man, claiming to be Jesus, pinned a man with his car, then tried to attack two women and was finally taken down by a homeless man with a hatchet. From the description, a homeless man named Kai had gotten a ride from a man he described as overweight, who admitted to him in the car that he had molested a 14-year old girl, and while driving, the man claimed he was Jesus and could therefore do anything he wanted. He crashed his car into a Pacific Gas and Electric worker, pinning him between the car and his work truck, just because the man was black. When two female by-standers came to help, the man leapt out of his car and attacked them. According to one of the women, Tanya Baker, “He just kept saying he’s Jesus Christ and he’s going to save all of us… but we have to get — he used the n-word, meaning the black people… and we need to get them off the earth.” Then, the man grabbed both women in a bear-hug and started squeezing. Seeing this, Kai jumped out of the car, grabbed a hatchet and whacked the assailant on the head three times. The driver was arrested and suffered non-life-threatening cuts to his scalp. The PG&E worker suffered two broken legs and is recovering in the hospital. Kai has been heralded as a hero, potentially saving the lives of the two women and perhaps even the worker.
When local station KMPH interviewed Kai at the scene, he gave a long, profanity-laden explanation of what happened, including my favorite line of all, “I’m like, ‘Bro, if you’re fuckin’ Jesus Christ, I’ll be the anti-Christ, man, like fuck that shit.”
