Bath Salts? Or Start of the Zombie Apocalypse?

Lately, it seems there are a few scattered stories popping up that sound suspiciously like zombie attacks. After all, in the initial stages of such an outbreak, would YOU (if you were the authorities) actually say what it is? (or would you come up with a cover?).

Personally, I still think the idea of zombies will remain relegated to fiction, however, it’s at least interesting reading when you hear the details of these incidents.

Let’s start with the case in Miami, Florida that kind of kicked this off (at least in the national spotlight)…

miami.cbslocal.com...

Police shoot and kill a man they see under an overpass, eating another man’s face!
Disclaimer: the link has disturbing VIDEO of this.


sources close to the investigation told CBS4 News that officers found one man gnawing on the face of another, in what one police source called the most gruesome thing he’d ever seen.



Aguilar said the officer saw what the man was doing, and ordered him to stop. He said the man growled at the officer, and then returned to his meal.
Aguilar said the man ate his victim’s nose and eyeballs.



The officer then used his service weapon and shot the man, Aguilar (Head of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police) said, but the gunshot had no effect. Other sources confirmed that the man refused to obey, and continued his attack. Aguilar said the officer had no choice but to keep shooting until the attacker was dead.



Police have shared no information about his identity or condition.


This was later confirmed:


Ronald Poppo, 65, is in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, just blocks from where he was attacked by 31-year-old Rudy Eugene in broad daylight Saturday on the Downtown off-ramp of Miami’s busy MacArthur Causeway.


The police state the attacker was likely high on a form of '___' nicknamed “bath salts”, but at least in my own research, I’ve yet to see where any kind of drug test was performed or results released. In fact, his brother’s testimony seems to cast doubt on this theory:


Eugene's autopsy results are pending.
Meanwhile, court records show Eugene had several arrests on marijuana-related charges. Eugene's brother said Eugene sometimes smoked marijuana but didn't drink much or use hard drugs. Bryant said she never saw Eugene drink and only once saw him smoke marijuana at a party.


According to police, this isn’t the first they’ve seen of such cases…


“We have seen, already, three or four cases that are exactly like this where some people have admitted taking '___' and it’s no different than coc aine psychosis,” Aguilar said.
In the cases Aguilar mentioned, he said the people have all taken their clothing off, been extremely violent with what seemed to be super-human strength, even using their jaws as weapons.


Days later, a Hackensack, New Jersey man behaves in a similarly disturbing manner…

newyork.cbslocal.com...


A man (Wayne Carter) who stabbed himself and threw pieces of his skin and intestines at police officers trying to subdue him was hospitalized in critical condition on Monday, authorities said.



Two officers kicked in the door and saw Carter in a corner, holding a knife in his hand, police said. Carter, ignoring the officers’ orders to drop the knife, stood up and stabbed himself in the abdomen, legs and neck, they said.
Carter yelled at the officers and took an aggressive stance, and the officers used pepper spray in a bid to subdue him, but it had no effect


Bath salts or mental illness have been cited by the police as possible explanations, though again, as of yet, no official word on drug tests or results, or clinical evaluation of sanity. However, there was this, as stated by a police Lt.


Carter has had a history of violence, including resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, and has been previously transported to the hospital for psychiatric reasons,


Even a few days later, a Scott, Louisiana man is arrested after biting another man’s face.

radio.foxnews.com...



He bit a chunk of the victims’s face off.


Around the same time, there’s this story from Baltimore, Maryland.

www.huffingtonpost.com...


When 22-year-old Joshua Ceasar regained consciousness after the attack last month at a Morgan State University dormitory apartment, he saw Alex Kinyua standing over him with a knife, said attorney Steve Silverman. Days later, Kinyua told investigators that he had eaten the heart and brain of a family friend he is charged with killing at his family's home in Joppatowne, according to charging documents.


His motives or the causes of the attack, remain a mystery, though psychological reasons are suspected (you think?).

About the same time, (beginning of this month), we’ve also got this case from Montreal, Canada.

www.huffingtonpost.com...


Packages containing a human foot and hand were discovered at two schools in Vancouver on Tuesday, in what could be the latest gruesome twist in the case of a Canadian porn actor suspected of dismembering and eating his former lover.



Video footage of what authorities believe to be the killing seems to show the suspect eating the body, said police in Montreal, where the death occurred.


I’ve seen at least a few other cases in this general theme over the last two weeks, but can’t detail all of them.

So, combination of weird drugs and mental disorders? Or the earmarks of the beginning of the zombie apocalypse? They say truth is stranger than fiction. I’m hoping this all (zombies) stays in the fiction category…. Let’s hope we’re not being lied to.

I have to laugh.

Bath Salts + Zombies and each time someone makes a thread about it, it ends up disappearing.

Now that Bath Salts has been declared illegal are you not breaking the ATS TOS?

Perhaps skirting it, but I don't believe so. I'd have to think they'd have to be more clearly defined before declaring them to be illegal. Plus, I believe this is still mostly at a state vs. federal level.

Some people even lump the potpourri or simulated pot into this category (yet it's still legal in many places).

The focus of my article though, is really more about the behavior these folks are exhibiting. I can't recall any other time where in a matter of weeks, we've seen so many stories about this kind of thing. It's a strange coincidence, given how long such substances have been around. Why now? Or is this a cover story?

now its 'bath salts'...

i recall years ago when Street-lore had it that 'Angel-Dust' made many of the users into Lunatics that had the strength of 10 men, could not be stopped with less than deadly force...

i hear that 'bath-salts' is a deadly combination of illegal drugs including synthetic narcotics
and euphemistically turns the victim into a zombie state of mind

street lore at its finest

I think it's a cover story. I highly doubt in every case it deals with Bath Salts, and after looking up the bath salts, I don't know why someone would even sniff that stuff. lol

But each case is different.

Bath Salts can't be involved in every single case. I just can't see that happening.

I think they released people from the mental ward and that's why we have some crazies out there.

I don't know if it's a zombie epidemic, but I do know one thing:
These cops better be shooting these so-called zombies in the head.
(and if this zombie thing is true then the guy whos face was eaten will turn soon...)

Cue eerie music and evil laugh...


Here's some rules to help us out:


Zombieland Rule #4: Doubletap(actual rule numbers vary by source)
"Carrying a gun is a great idea but it should never be your primary weapon. When you do end up using it for that last minute "OH SH$&" moment remember to doubletap. Its an emergency and that's why you are using it and not your cricket bat so why skimp? One bullet more in the head will go a long way ensuring your survival."

The 32 Rules of Zombieland

I really liked that movie.

Bananas aren't illegal, can I make a thread about bananas? OH! I know a dude that smoked banana peels once, and his words became mumbled, and his coordination was so messed up that he had to keep his hands out in front of his self, and he moved so slow.

It's like he turned into a mummy!

Oh, they're illegal here in Florida, that was one of Pam Bondi's first actions after her election, but they are still mostly legal around the States. The funny thing is we rarely had problems until they became illegal, and now they appear to be much more dangerous!

I don't believe the bath salts are making people bite each other. They might be aggravating other psychological issues, but they are not creating zombies. The Zombies were already created by the MSM, economy, TV, Video Games, Hollywood, Public School systems, GMO-food, High-Sugar diet, Poor parenting, Over-bearing government and police presence, and hot humid weather, among other things. The bath salts just made them a little stronger, tougher, and crazier.

you can't make 'bath salts' illegal. May as well say plants are illegal. and not single out a specific one.

THIS IS THE PROBLEM...



I'm going to cry now that it's still being used as an excuse and taken as literal by people.

because I cannot punch the monitor and not regret it.

I've had posts removed for discussing the legal variety of research chemicals sprayed onto plant matter.

You know why these research chems are so prevalent? Because the alternatives are illegal. 100% why. not because they're funner of groovier... they just bypass the legalities.

Crack was a quick alternative to coke. thanks to the war on drugs.

That I neglected to mention, is a great point.

I'd think it's nothing more than fear mongering. No longer can you scared parents with weed or what not... throw in a seemingly family orientated term, 'bath salts' and you get them rallying for whatever you suggest once more.

The new reefer madness.

But then even talking about the why's leads back to the T&C. We cant win here man..

The next thing that will be hitting the MSM everywhere....."Kid bites another kid at daycare. Another Zombie attack?".

I mean come on this is just getting ridiculous! The other night on my local news station, they had a story about a drug bust. The woman they arrested tried to bite the arresting officers. Which has probably happened a thousand times before, but it was spun to insinuate it was related to these attacks.

There are logical explanations in all these attacks, i.e. drug induced, psychosis, or the mentally disturbed. And in most cases it is explained as such, but it is largely ignored by the public, and blamed on something silly like a zombie.

Hey! That's not funny. My 4 year old is constantly talking about eating people. I live in Florida, and I think he might be the ground zero of the Florida zombie infection. He has been doing this for at least 2 years, and he seems to be immune to the rage of the virus, and has the hunger part.

He does get bit, or do the biting at school every so often.

It probably started with the voracious fireants we have down here, and then spread through the children, and now it is at the adults.

PLEEEASE tell me you are kidding around!! So your son has the zombie virus that was started by fireants, but doesn't have the rage but the hunger of the virus?

I've heard it all now!!

Do I really have to tell you I'm kidding?

These zombie threads are funny on so many levels. There are people taking them totally seriously, and then there are people adamantly pointing out the obvious ridiculousness, and then there are people searching for plausible explanations but being attacked from both sides, and then there are people like me.

Yes, it is ridiculous, but I'm prepared anyway. There isn't much difference between zombies and roving gangs or hungry victims of disasters, so being prepared for zombies means I'm prepared for everything else too. While I'm prepared, I'm also amused and not the least bit worried of an actual zombie outbreak.

For the record, I do NOT think my 4 year old is a zombie, but I'm not so sure about the fireants.
