Man dresses up as a zombie and harasses neighbors as a prank, is almost shot

It's officially time to stop messing around with this whole horrific new "zombie apocalypse" news trend.


Thanks to Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, the meme has officially been pushed too far. Zdorovetskiy dressed up as a zombie and went around scaring folks in a Miami parking lot. Remember, this is just days after the horrific news about the homeless man who attacked and ate the face off of another man. Obviously, the neighborhood responded accordingly, when they spotted a dangerous blood covered man lunging at their children with his teeth. And the "prankster" was almost shot by his own admission at 2:00 minutes in (he also claims this on his youtube page). Great timing, buddy!


Given the recent Bathsalt Zombie situation, what if upon seeing this man, my first instinct when he approached me was not to run, but rather to beat the crap out of him with whatever I had in my posession.

Would somebody with more police/legal knowledge than me tell me what I would be within my rights to do?
