As they say, “The 21st Century isn’t working out how I had hoped”. I wonder if there is a
province state in Australia that roughly correlates with Florida, because this story has Florida Man™ written all over it. Except it isn’t.
From Sydney Morning Herald:
A woman accused of attacking multiple people with an axe in Sydney’s inner west last year heard a voice shortly beforehand that told her to “kill, maim and inflict pain on people and start the rise of hell on earth”, a court has heard.
Evie Amati, 26, allegedly attacked two people with the axe at a 7-Eleven in Enmore early on January 7, 2017. She then allegedly swung the axe twice at a man outside who managed to avoid the blows.
She is facing trial in the NSW District Court, where she has pleaded not guilty to six charges including two counts of wounding with intent to murder.
The court previously heard Ms Amati cannot remember the incident. She does not deny her body was there, but says her mind was not.
Giving evidence on Thursday, Ms Amati said she smoked two joints of cannabis on her balcony, about 450 metres away from where the attack unfolded, early on January 7.
Sorry, drug use is not an excuse for further poor behavior, and to try and blame cannabis for a unprovoked attack on two people is a complete cop-out. The elevator was stopping well short of the top floor for this “woman” long before she toked some herb.
