Are the undead sentient beings? Can I shoot them?

So now what do we do?

This is absolutely nonsensical disinformation. The article I read on another site claimed cocaine psychosis.

No drug makes you strip naked and eat people. Perhaps restraining the guy, and giving him a medical/psych evaluation would of been a better idea than shooting him. :juggling:

PCP? Probably a good candidate.

Well, after reading the stuff about LSD I had the same thought as ghost01. Here in Europe you'll find similar news stories showing up sporadically, reporting about all kinds of bizarre things that people on drugs allegedly have done, but if you dig a little deeper into these cases, it almost always turns out that these reports were either completely fake or at least highly exaggerated. But then, that's nothing new...

PCP does nothing of the sort. It was primarily used as a dissociative anesthetic. Maybe it was reefer?


Obviously the government is trying to cover up zombie experiments. The bombers full of napalm are already on their way.

Ya, right. A brush fire. Next Miami will have a "gas leak".

This is what happens if you listen to jazz.

Shoot first administer psychological evaluation later? Truth is I can't blame the cop for shooting, I mean, the "zombie" was actually chewing the face off the homeless dude.

Well drugs per se may not but specific drugs can have specific psychotic effects on particular minds. For example some drugs can indeed turn people into sex zombies (essentially) because those people are so inclined from the start. So perhaps the person was violently psychotic and indulged in a cannibalistic fantasy? We won't really know for sure bu the autopsy will reveal if and what sorts of drugs played a role.

Actual omnivores or carnivores kill their prey before eating it. Apparently drugged up humans pretending to be carnivores don't know this.

This guy was definitely still alive, so it was "killing." However real zombies are definitely and by definition completely dead, hence the epithet undead. You can shoot them, but you should probably practice a lot of meditation and Avalokiteshvara/Guan Yin or Amitayus prayer, to not mess up your own mind while destroying so many walking corpses. On the other hand, dispatching zombies does remind me of the Tibetan traditions of destroying the body or ripping it up and various other corpsy tantric rituals. In that sense it's kind of therapeutic.

35 year old Pamela McCarthy, off her face on "bath salts", stripped naked and beat and strangled her three year old son in an attempt to kill him. When the kids father rushed outside to save him the neighbours dogs attacked McCarthy and she strangled them. The cops pepper sprayed her to no effect, so they tazered her. She died of a heart attack.
