Concealed carry in Haiti . . .

. . . but not of a gun.  I received this picture from an e-mail correspondent last night.  I don’t know its origin, but it shows all too clearly how even a very large weapon can be concealed if someone’s determined to do so.

A few days ago I pointed out that even large, long-barreled revolvers can be concealed if you put your mind to it.  I reckon that machete’s bigger (or, at least, longer) than almost any revolver, yet he was carrying it beneath a T-shirt.  Makes you think, doesn’t it?

(I hope he isn’t the sarcastic type.  It would be too easy to make cutting remarks – literally!)



  1. I would never "carry/conceal" a machete. Instant castration. Or at least tear all the tendons and muscles in your thighs.

  2. He's a sous-chef at an upscale restaurant in Port-au-Prince and that's his potato peeler. The two uniformed thugs are keeping him from earning a living, more evidence of the spillover effect from U.S. police brutality.

  3. The cop on the right–am I seeing correctly that he has his RIFLE holstered like a pistol? I've never seen that before.
