Don't mess with me

This unusual bug has "don't mess with me" written all over it.  I'm not sure what it is, but it was somewhat aggressive towards me as it was resting on a brugmansia leaf.

It had a nice sized beak, obviously for sucking the juice out of something, either a plant or another insect.  I'm hoping it is the latter.
