Another recent case of Dominicans resorting to violence with machetes. From what I understand, this man was being abused and one day decided to stand up for himself and told the bullies off. They retaliated by chopping him up with a machete.
You can tell those nasty deep cuts on his lower legs are defensive wounds. He crouched down on the floor and raised his knees as the only line of defence against the merciless machete blade. The left leg especially took a nasty blow right through the kneecap. He’ll never walk normally on that leg again. If he survives at all, that is.
