February 4th, Anesson Joseph, 28-years-old, was shot dead after a violent, naked rampage in a Florida neighborhood. He terrorized the area attacking residents in a seeming "state of psychosis."
There is cell phone footage which shows the man coming against the officers who initially tried to bring him into subjection with a taser gun. The Daily Mail reported that the officers made multiple attempts, and ultimately ended up shooting him.

Joseph allegedly chased a 66-year-old retired cop, Douglas Kozlik, which cause him some minor injuries.
Joseph was also said attack a 10-year-old boy which drew the 18-year-old Tony Grein who lived in the same Delray Beach neighborhood. The clash began when Joseph attacked Grein's 16-year-old sister outside their home. The Palm Beach Post reported that the teen tackled Joseph to the ground, allowing his sister to escape while he still fought the man.
Grein said the crazed man was biting and choking him. And he's got the bite marks, stitches, and bruises to prove it. Grein describes the man as "ridiculously strong" and way too strong to fight, but he was, thankfully, able to escape.
Reports also say that Joseph was also acting like an animal and even growling.
"I can say from personal experience if this guy can take a couple of stab wounds and gun shots and still move and hurt people I think they did what they had to do to protect everyone," Grein told WPTV-TV.
The police were forced to corner Joseph, noticing there seemed to be some sort of drug influence at play. Unfortunately, this was when the final violent clash took place and the officers had not other choice but to take his life.
"The guy had superhuman strength. He was a big guy to start with," the Palm Beach County Sheriff, Ric Bradshaw, told WPTV-TV. "He was at least 6 feet 3 inches and 250 pounds. He was not fat. He was like an NFL linebacker. Basically he was terrorizing people up and down the street."
The authorities were reported to be seen helping Joseph after he was shot, but the man resisted and died soon after at a local hospital.
The teen's father, Mario Grein, was also said to jump in and punch the man, but it did nothing. He said the Joseph would have attacked more people if the people hadn't intervened.
"He had plenty of strength to take out more people," Mario told The Palm Beach Post.
