John McAfee arrested…wait…what?

This just seems like one of the more bizarre stories to hit the tech world in a long time

Apparently John McAfee, the creator of the ubiquitous anti-virus software, has been wanted in Belize for some time now over the shooting death of his neighbor.

He decided to flee, and seek asylum in Guatemala. Then the Central American country’s immigration police for entering the country illegally.

McAfee choose Guatamala because he wanted “…a place where there is some sanity,”

McAfee said that in Guatemala, the locals aren’t surprised when he says the Belizean government is out to kill him.

“Instead of going, ‘You’re crazy,’ they go, ‘Yeah, of course they are,'” he said. “It’s like, finally, I understand people who understand the system here.”

McAfee says once his troubles are behind him, he has not ruled out moving back to the United States

Is it unprofessional for me to end this post with the word “Facepalm”? I gotta go read some Violent Blue. The talking squirrel makes more sense than this.
