To Hell In A Handbasket [NSFW]

6

There’s more than enough ‘net discussion about zombies at the moment, so I’m not going to take a chance on beating a dead horse. (See what I did there?)

I will, however, give you guys a glimpse into what insanity looks like:

You’re welcome.

We’ve all heard the grotesque tale of Rudy Eugene (dude with braids & a bullet hole) attacking & “eating” Ronald Poppo’s face. In fact, as reports of Ronald’s recovery turn optimistic, reports are also surfacing that he only has 20% of his “face” still intact. With Eugene dead, dozens – if not hundreds – of questions still remain unanswered. All the police work in the world can only piece together the chain of events, & even with an established timeline, many aspects of this bizarre crime may never be truly understood.

As the media dehumanizes Rudy Eugene, facts about the victim, Poppo, are coming to light, giving him more importance than just being the man “The Miami Zombie” tried to ingest. Ronald Poppo was a human being with no idea what fate had in store for him that afternoon.

Put yourself in his shoes for a moment. How many times have you been in a secluded area with a stranger? Did you ever once think he would come after you? Regardless, I’ll bet that you never worried about being eaten. Neither did Ronald, & I’m sure of it.

What happens when Ronald is released from the hospital? Can he sue the police department for what many are saying was a poor response to an emergency call? & assuming he recovers enough to live a “normal” life, how can he do that ever again without the missing 80% of his face? Not only will the mental anguish haunt him until his final breath, but any medical procedures will surely be expensive. & with the Trayvon Martin case still lingering in the tropical air, Florida may want to fund a face transplant for Ronald Poppo as a sign of good gesture.

Perhaps some daunting philanthropist will donate a portion of their blood monies to help this unfortunate man in this most dire of situations.

This story is much more disturbing than the newspapers & digital magazines are willing to admit. & far be it from me to attempt to foretell the future, but this is a sign of societal decay.

Or even worse…

This may be the first sign of the beginning of the end of the system of things as we know it. My advice to you is find something to believe in as soon as humanly possible.

    Yesterday I saw a picture of Ronald’s face… or at least the little bit of it that is left. It is a damn creepy story.

    I’ve read 3 different stories today about people eating people.

    Now either this shut is normal & the Internet is just now exposing it or something is terribly, terribly wrong in the universe.

    society decay is exactly what it is. if this had been some business man so many more would donate and the media would milk the story but people seem to forget this man could have a bigger heart than any of us combined which isn’t hard to believe considering how society has pushed this RIDICULOUS and hard to believe story under the rug. I asked many to donate and only got “no… he was homeless” *as they buy a 7$ latte*…. i have lost all faith in humanity.
