These stories just keep coming. There's this one too...
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have said there's no threat of a "zombie apocalypse," but Miami police might disagree.
A homeless man who was busted hassling customers in a Boston Market in North Miami Beach on Saturday told police he wanted to "eat" them and tried to
bite an officer, cops said.
After cops yanked him from the chicken joint and put him in a police cruiser, Brandon De Leon, 21, slammed his head against the plexiglass divider and
shouted at officers, "I'm going to eat you," NBC Miami reported.
Or this one:
Finally, we go to the Sassy Beauty Supply Shop in New Haven, Connecticut, which was the scene of an attempted theft. A 38 year old woman
attempted to steal a wig from the store. When confronted, she bit the store owners bicep, ripped out a chunk of flesh and spit it back in his
So far, the standard seems to be to blame these on drug induced behavior (though some cases point more towards existing mental health issues...). So,
are these acts occurring more frequently, or just getting more press? Or, is Miami the start of a Zombie Apocalypse?
Funny thing though, in
movies, it always starts out this way too (the first reports being attributed to drugs, etc.), before the hordes start.
While I have no fears of a virus reanimating the dead...a virus that makes people behave in such a way isn't too far-fetched. Indeed, rabies is
already a really close candidate, so isn't too hard to conceive of something similar being out there.
Personally, I think it's more of a press bandwagon thing...but time will tell.
