Man Charged In WalMart Hatchet Attack

February 16, 2011 at 6:09 am by  

Quincy, MA — Kenneth Rosen has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after allegedly threatening two men with a hatchet at a Quincy WalMart.

Quincy police Capt. John Dougan said Rosen became enraged when two men seated near him in the Subway restaurant inside the store asked him to turn down his radio Friday afternoon.

“He stood up and threw a tonic at them, then pulled out a hatchet with a foot-and-a-half long handle, waving and swinging it in the direction of their heads,” Dougan said.

And then, in what must have been an awe-inspiring show of complete badassery, Rosen reportedly slammed the hatchet down on the table where the men had been sitting, cutting a sandwich in half. “You want some of that?” he asked. I’m guessing their answer was no…

As Rosen was being escorted out by store security, police say he pulled out a folding knife and pointed it at them.

When an officer rolled up a short time later, Rosen was found walking down a nearby street with the hatchet holstered to his right hip. The officer drew his gun and the 54-year-old man surrendered without incident. Rosen is due back in court on March 4 for arraignment.

    Would have been better if he’d given the those dudes some gaping vaginas with that axe.

    Tonic?? TONIC?!?!? Since when do people in Massachusetts say “tonic”?? When *I* lived there, it was soda! Tonic sounds stewpid!!

    … sorry, it just happened to catch my eye. 🙂

    Since when is being a badass a crime??

    I would have paid a lot to see those guy’s faces when he decapitated that sammich. This story makes me want to shop at Walmart more often…

  • Nope, it was either “tonic” or “pop”. I grew up there (Northern Mass.).

    Of course if this is Massachusetts, then it was likely pronounced “twawnick”. The damned Mass. cops have the worst accents.

  • seeeee? this is exactly why we need the see something. say something. program. wal-mart is just oh so dangerous!

    This guy has a crazy long face. The kinda face that leads me to believe that, if he wanted to, he could do this:

  • Coyote

    If I ever carried a hatchet to Wal-Mart, someone would be dead.

    I grew up there and thats what my grandma always calls it. Its soda now for us young folks.

    I don’t think the psychiatric evaluation is necessary. This guy swung the hatchet around, and pulled a knife on security, and yet no one got hurt. That would seem to be a man that is actually in control of himself much better than most of the fucktards that we read about on this site. I mean, sure he is probably a bit unstable, but he obviously isn’t legally insane.

    And this is why I shop at Target…

    I’d rather see the pervy dudes showing their junk than a hatchet swinging crazy

    My first thought was a slightly bewildered Christopher Lee. I bet his voice isn’t anywhere near as commanding though. Probably why he carries the hatchet.

  • dr.awkward

    That is an awesome movie.
