Real life: Hitchhiker with a hatchet saves woman from rampaging, murderous lunatic

Well. In lieu of Allahpundit’s usual palate-cleanser, here’s an — er — unique offering that I’d call equal parts palate cleanser, semi-non sequitur, and odd yet empowering example of citizen justice.

The story seems to be that a homeless hitchhiker, Kai, had nabbed a ride from a man who suddenly went berserk, started yelling racist epithets and claiming he was Jesus, and then deliberately rammed his car into a utility worker. The man jumped out and full-body grabbed a woman who had rushed over to help — at which point Kai, armed only with his trusty hatchet, quickly acted to neutralize the assailant. Or, in his own words, “Smash, smash, smash!”
