Experts say naked biter might suffer from "ED"

When I first saw this article, I thought they were going to blame it on erectile dysfunction.
Now I do not believe this is the beginning of a "zombie apocalypse" but clearly something crazy is going on. More than they are telling us, I think.

Since it's not bath salts, what's the verdict now?

In fact - Sampson said the suspect was also exhibiting the signs of a relatively new phenomenon that law enforcement and emergency workers now call “Excited Delirium” or, ED.

You see that? They've basically just made up something and slapped a name on it to explain these happenings away. Once the bath salts excuse no longer held up, well now it's "excited delirium," something that didn't exist a few months ago. If this is such a genuine explanation how come it just happened? Why hasn't this been happening for some time?

No, I think they are trying really hard to cover something up. It could possibly be something the government engineered that somehow "got out"? I don't know. But to just make up some psychological explanation, one that previously didn't exist, seems fishy to me.

With 7 billion people on this planet, I believe that there are a few nutcase psycopaths on it.

Why does it have to be something from the government?

Cannibalism and psycopaths go hand in hand my friend.

Just look at Hannibal Lecter

Wow, it was something called "excited delirium?"

ED is erectile dysfunction, so the ED is a bad choice.

I feel better now that it is classified and I can go to the doctor to see if I have it. Why are we so obsessed with "diagnosis?" Why do we just need to attach a name to every thing that happens? Classification and war are the human's best traits.

Yes, let's just ignore the fact that Hannibal Lecter was a fictitious character in a movie.

I'd suggest something even more scary..... The Government isn't behind it. No one did this, and they are as confused and growing as scared as some of us out here who are watching this all very closely. THAT is far more disturbing to me than thinking it's deliberate or a known quantity got out of control.

I don't question there is something seriously out of balance though. People are going totally crazy...what I've come to call Hollywood Crazy, because movies are the only place you see this kind of behavior from human beings. Maybe it's a combination of things environmental? A combination of all the background Rx that is in the water tables now, if we believe studies, all interacting just wrong for some people?

Perhaps for the Tin Foil Hat extremes, HAARP is running in some other nation's version and it's not just our weather, but these are the weaker among us? After all, some of that was first started for behavior modification (those frequencies) not weather.

I sure hope people far wiser than all of us here are hard at work trying to answer it. These cases are freaky beyond description as isolated one-off's. Until they know WHY though, there is no reason to think more aren't coming or that it can't become more than one at once.
crrrrazy times!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest demonic possessions are behind it. I mean, really, it takes some deep-seeded carnal desires to want to run naked and rampant and eat someone's face.

Very interesting, I've never heard of this condition or classification, although according to the Wikipedia link on ED in the article the causes are varied, and some have argued the condition was constructed to cover up violence by law enforcement.
It even includes alcohol withdrawal - so while no substance is in the blood, the physical craving is still present.
In the 1970s we saw pictures of violent naked people like that, and they blamed it on "Angel Dust".

It seems this guy was violent and it was not a case of covering up police brutality.

In the former USSR political prisoners were said to suffer from "delayed schizophrenia", and that justified their "psychiatric incarceration" on the grounds that they might suddenly develop schizophrenia.
So conditions do get constructed to serve certain agendas.

On the other hand one shouldn't overlook hysteria.
Some argue that hysteria changes with each generation, and in the Victorian age women showed signs of hysteria from sexual repression, such as limbs not being able to move, or hallucinations.
Some say all the depression, paranoia, demonic possession claims and even alien abduction memories are signs of modern hysteria, often modeled on religions, film and the media.
Considering the deluge of zombie movies nowadays, perhaps this is the new form of hysteria?

Whatever the case, if it spreads it's likely to encourage and justify more pre-emptive violence between law enforcement and the public.
Implanting such hysteria could thus serve an agenda in itself: to further make violence seem justified and acceptable.
I bet the cases will increase now that the diagnosis has been "established".

Zombies + Viagra = Rape Zombies. No thank you. That's when I call it a day.

I don't think they believe it is linked to one source and that's why they threw a name out there. I have yet to run into anyone like that and believe me I'll probably be one of the first people to. I just hope this doesn't turn around. By giving it a name they can say you are showing signs of ED, whatever those might be, and before you go around biting peoples faces off take this medicine or else.

For whatever reason some people just like to bite. Biting is not uncommon. The eating part..yeah. I don't think I could ever be angry enough to want to bite someone unless it was last resort type of deal.

This is the first page brought up when you Google this phenomenon. It is relatively new, but still a little fishy to me.
From there there is a link to a NPR article from 2007 that questions the likelyhood of this even being a "real" diagnosis.
Death by Excited Delirium: Diagnosis or Cover-up?

"It's definitely real," Mash says. "And while we don't know precisely what causes this, we do know it is the result of a neural chemical imbalance in the brain." But nearly all reported cases of excited delirium involve people who are fighting with police. And that's extremely problematic, says Eric Balaban of the American Civil Liberties Union. "I know of no reputable medical organization — certainly not the AMA [American Medical Association] or the APA [American Psychological Association] — that recognizes excited delirium as a medical or mental-health condition," Balaban says. He's right. Excited delirium is not recognized by professional medical associations, and you won't find it listed in the chief psychiatric reference book.

I have to agree with the OP to an extent here. I think this is just another cover-up as to what is really going on. Don't get me wrong, I'm not on the "Zombie train" but I don't think we are being told the entire story either....

Not a good choice. You will probably be slapped in the nuthouse faster than sheriff Joe rounds up illegal Mexicans. And you will probably get one of those cool Hannibal masks to stop you from chewing on anyone.

Why not enlightened delirium?

Why not MD - Munchies Delirium?

Not sure if it's true, but apparently survivors from shipwrecks could go into deliriums from hunger or drinking seawater, where their fellow life-boat survivors would look like big cakes or juicy steaks.

I hear the cure for ED or “Excited Delirium” is bath salts!
