Anyone heard about the invasion of the zombie craze?

    Seems we might really have a Zombie situation going on that is real, or so called real.

    There is the drug crazed zombie man who chased down the poor homeless man and ate off half his face in front of a bunch of tourists before the police could stop him. He was supposedly on a combo of bath salts and LSD. It took the police about 20 to 30 minutes to bring him down with stun guns and tranquilizers.

    Then there is some guy out in LA who did something with killing a guy and eating his brain and head with a knife and fork.

    Then there is the biggest one....the guy from Canada. The so called gay porn star and male homosexual model who killed his gay lover and cut him into pieces, ate part of him, allowed his dog to munch along, had sex with the corpse, then mailed body parts to different places in Canada. Then he fled Canada to places in Europe and was finally found in Belgium I believe and waived extradition back to Canada. He was caught by going into an Internet Cafe to look up the press on

    I have read about, and seen on the news all of these cases. Synthetic drugs like bath salts are horrifying. My sister in law is a nurse in the ICU of our local hospital. A few months ago, a naked, middle aged man was running through the very lovely neighborhood where her hospital happens to be. The naked man, who was not a big weightlifter kind of guy, just normal size, broke one policeman's wrist, and shattered the shinbone of another policeman when they tried to capture him. They brought him to the hospital, and he later wound up in sister in law's unit, with a mesh, chainmail type vest and arm & leg restraints. He somehow tore out of the restraints, and told sister in law he was going to kill her! She got security, and the dr. injected him with-something to practically kill a horse, but it turns out he was on bath salts....totally legal product as of a few months ago, that one could pick up in a tobacco shop (I think it's illegal right now, though, they just passed a law if I'm not mistaken). sister in law said he was completely inhuman as far as his expression when he was high, and superhuman in strength. She said he was like a man-sized crazed animal, and she was amazed the cops didn't shoot him.
    I shudder to think what would've happened to passersby or to sister in law or other hospital employees/patients if they couldn't adequately sedate him.

    The porno guy is just sickening. I believe he also previously posted videos on Youtube of him suffocating kittens, and he also filmed himself killing his human victim and put it on youtube as well. Very, very scary. You can't make this stuff up.

    Actually, it's pretty serious stuff. And if you start doing internet searches on cannibalistic crimes in recent news's scary as hades.

    The culprit seems to be a new fad, bath salts, that people are now using like cocaine/meth ect. It does something to the chemical make up of the brain and causes severe psychosis and extreme violent behavior.

    There was a woman who dismembered and ate her newborn son. A guy who walked up to a homeless man and just started chomping on his face..............revolting, alarming, and scary!

    And yeah, it totally reminded me of all the zombie apocalyptic warning stuff from the CDC (theirs was to increase public awareness to prep for disasters) and those movies they put out on zombies running around eating everyone at the end of the world. Not that they're related.........but still.

    I think some states either have or are trying to get bath salts banned to try to curb the new trend. Of course it's not going to work any more than it has with any other drug.

    I'm still trying to figure out who and why on earth would you ever even think to use bath salts for such a thing??? I mean gosh, the high risk of totally frying your brain completely and eating someone's face off is just sooooooooooooooooo appealing. NOT! ew

    Yeah the guy was killing kittens and putting them on youtube for years and no one would pay attention even though some of the animal rights groups were trying to get the authorities involved but you can bet your hind end that now laws will be passed that if any child so much as strangles a gerbil they will be put into Department of Juvenile Justice. Just watch.
  5. Yes, very scary and sickening.

    The porn star guy grew up very close to where I am. Apparently he dated Karla Homolka - part of a duo that raped and murdered several young girls in the late 80's - early 90's. She turned evidence and got out of prison way too early - and then dated this guy? Sick sick sick.

    When I was in junior high, a kid from my church decided it would be fun to try and smoke pizza crusts. Why? Well, we were at a pizzeria playing Gauntlet... Where do they come up with these ideas? Heaven only knows. Then again, who thought to themselves, "Look at the baby cow sucking on its mother, maybe I should try some of that?" Or, "Maybe if I dry out this corn and grind it up with a rock, then add water and bake it in the sun, it will be tasty?"

    So I guess, really, bath salts aren't that far a leap. Toddlers put everything into their mouths... So... Hmm.

    Onyxx has informed me that the Miami incident was a governmental cover-up where they were testing drugs on the perpetrator and he got loose so they called it bath salts. Then again, this is the same kid who tried to argue that the pot she was smoking was "natural".

    Scary stuff.

    Step, the government cover-up is a tad far-fetched but she's right, pot is natural!

    LDM... The pot around here is about as natural as any human-compounded pharmaceutical... There are LOTS of additives... We've had all kinds of warnings over the last 10 years or so. (Since about the last time I tried it and found it did nothing for me... LOL)

    Whatever Onyxx was smoking, it wasn't "natural". (Heck, it didn't even smell like the pot I tried way back when...)

    The scariest thing about the "bath salts" is that, for a while at least, it was readily available in lots of convenience stores! The same convenience stores that lots of elementary school kids stopped in to buy snacks after school! The problem with getting rid of it here was that they had a hard time classifying it, pinning down exactly what it was, and proving that people were using it as a drug. The laws vary by area but they finally got it out of the stores here by labeling it as a synthetic drug which makes the sale of it to anyone a crime. The thought that even kids could have bought it and tried it as terrifying!

    Ummm.....bath salts are NOT what you put in your bath to make it smell pretty. They just gave it that name to make it sound innocuous. The bath salts that are really synthetic drugs are bad. They make people hallucinate.

    Janet - you are correct, however some of the chemicals they put in, say, lavender-scented Dead Sea salt scrub, intended for topical use, could probably make you hallucinate, too...

    Spice is a nice pretty name too. I love spice! Garlic, onion, rosemary, thyme, saffron... OH. You mean synthetic pot?! UGH!

    Pot is only natural if you grow it yourself. I don't want to even imagine what all they lump in with it these days. But it's not the mellow drug of days gone by for certain.

    It's like those that are determined to self destruct (in my opinion drug abuse is a deliberate self destructive behavior) have to keep upping the ante. Sort of reminds me of lemmings in an odd way.

    Lemmings... Yes. I do believe you are on to something...
