It takes a Taser to stop naked knife-wielding woman's rampage
Jacksonville.com ^ | September 7, 2012 | Dan Scanlan

Posted on 09/08/2012 10:17:24 AM PDT by null and void

With a yell of “God is here, I’m going to repent,” a woman swung a butcher knife Wednesday afternoon at someone inside Teen Challenge.

She next stabbed a table before stripping down and attacking two cars. She had chased children with the blade before a Taser stopped her rampage.

Cheri Dana, a 42-year-old transient, has been jailed on charges of aggravated assault and criminal mischief. $90,000 bail.

The woman walked into Teen Challenge, an addiction treatment center, just before 1 p.m. and grabbed the knife off a counter. Yelling as she swung, she stabbed a table before running to the Jaguar Car Wash at 3366 Philips Highway, stripping as she went. Two men were inside a car there when she stabbed it.

The woman ran to Philips Auto at 3386 Philips Highway and stabbed a second car, then chased teens getting off a school bus with the knife. Police found the woman stabbing stairs with the knife and ordered her to drop it. When she refused and started toward two officers, one fired a Taser.

The woman was taken to Shands Jacksonville, then arrested, police said.

It is a little disappointing that she didn’t try to eat anyone’s face off...

The trick is, don't leave knives laying around inside a rehab.

Teen Challenge is a Christian based drug and alcohol rehab center with an amazing success rate. Our church supports Teen Challenge financially. The story isn’t clear but I would suspect she got the knife from the kitchen.
BTW, Teen Challenge serves adults too but they have stuck with the original name.

I think its a treatment center for teens that have addictions, not a place for people addicted to teens. :)

It is perfectly acceptable......as long as the writer can scribe “unexpectedly” or “turning the corner”, etc. when refering to our burgeoning economic recovery from the worst depression since the GREAT Depression.

Inspector Harry Callahan knows how to deal with these types.

[Harry Callahan has to explain why he shot a man]

Harry Callahan: Well, when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard. That's my policy.

The Mayor: Intent? How did you establish that?

Harry Callahan: When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher's knife and a hard-on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross! [walks out of the room]

The Mayor: He's got a point.

It’s one of the great mysteries of the universe why we never get to see some smoking hot supermodel covergirl running around naked, stabbing cars, and screaming some vague lunacy.

I’d daresay such an event would brighten my day considerably.

“The woman ran to Philips Auto at 3386 Philips Highway and stabbed a second car, then chased teens getting off a school bus with the knife, police said.”

Kids were getting off of the bus with a knife? This is a sign of how far we have fallen through government education.

Like a passerby trying, but failing, to avoid looking at an accident scene, I came to this thread hoping I would not see a picture of this woman. Let me continue scanning the comments...so far so good.

The word had apparently spread. It appears that radiation from a comet has allowed the souls of the denizens of hell to take over lawnmowers, buses, trucks, and cars. These kids were prepared.

You might not believe this, but the statement is completely accurate. She stabbed the car. She stabbed many cars.

Very few people are “native” Floridians.ie I'm not,even after 25 years, but my daughter is, as she was born here.

We've always had a lot of tourists, some who decided to stay. Snowbirds, retirees, spring-breakers, Canadians, Cubans, Russians, New Yorkers etc.

Generally 3/4 of those who make the news of the weird here, originated elsewhere.
They heard the cost of living here is lower, but soon find out the price of drugs and alcohol remains the same.

It's truly a melting pot!
