Drugs and mental illness, especially when combined, can create some very unnatural behavior in humans.

Having a history of working around criminals, many of whom were suffering from some sort of psychosis, has enlightened me to just what people are capable of doing to themselves and to others.

I could share stories that would make your blood curdle, some of them are just as bad or worse than the story in the news.

This isn't a new thing, like SR said, drugs have been a problem for millenia and bizarre behavior due to drugs and/or mental illness has been around for as long as humans have.

Yes, it is more prevalent now than it was 200 years ago, but it's not quite as common as the news would have us believe.

Unless your brothers are already involved in the lifestyle that would lead them to be in contact with people such as these, then they are at no greater risk than the other billions of normal people in the world.

Not just kids I have to say, it's equally applicable to adults. Personally I think druggies are more scary and dangerous than, say, alcoholics (although the latter is a very bad addiction too, of course).

How about what daily life would have you believe? Do you know that one in every five americans has, or has a close relative who has a drug problem? Blessed be all of you who haven't had this as part of your daily lives, but when your porch is sometimes the haunt of strung out vagrants, its a little to in your face not to worry. Maybe where some people can afford to live, the druggies hide behind their cocktail parties and warmbloods, but MOST of the country lives in areas where you can get any bath tub backwoods brew you could ask for.
I do wish to point out, over thirty reported cases of this symptom, with this drug in this area. Who knows how many more aren't reported, didn't have this symptom or had it witha different drug mixture? And only one of those reported cases made it to More than local news. It IS more prevalent than anybody would like to believe, and putting your blinders on isn't going to make it go away. Saying oh drugs have been around forever doesn't change the fact that they are KILLING innocent people NOW. In more ways and greater numbers than ever before.
My brothers are both good boys, with good grades and good common sense. That doesn't mean they can't go for a walk and become a victim. It doesn't mean YOU can't go for a walk and become a victim.

You should really stop and think before you start judging people that you don't know just because we don't see the world the same way.

With my background, family in law enforcement, and having spent 5+ years working security in a state correctional facility, I can confidently say that I probably know more about the types of people that are out there than you do.

However, I simply choose not to stew and fret and make myself sick worrying about things that I have zero control over. That doesn't mean that I am wearing rose colored glasses or that I live in a state of denial, I just don't see the sense in giving myself an ulcer worrying about what "might" happen. Sure, I think about it and I plan for it, but there is absolutely no point in having panic attacks about something that may never happen.

Ugh, I used to live in Broward Analisa. Hubby and I moved 2 years ago and couldnt have made a better decision. I heard about this the day it happened and I can not believe it! Florida is a %$@# hole to begin with, and I wanted no part of raising my child there.
This is absolutely terrifying. To add to the other person who psoted about the man throwing his intestines, check this out...

Neither do I, but I don't go around promoting hysteria or looking down my nose at people who don't hold the same opinions. You're really starting to show your true colors here.

You're coming across as sooo much better than the rest of us in all your threads, especially when people aren't slobbing praise all over you.

If you want to constantly look for the bad in life and believe yourself to be more sainted than everyone else, that's your business. Just don't expect the rest of the populace to help you polish your halo, or buy into your crappy outlook on life and people.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Farm, they're not saying, but my suspicions are that the two men were probably getting sexually intimate when the drugged out one went ballistic.

Speed, that is not the case at all. The attacker was already naked walking along the mcarthur causeway. He spotted this homeless man in the shade under the causeway and began attacking him. The video from the newspaper factory's cameras show the attacker dragging the man out from the shade and ripping his clothes off him. He then crouches down and begins eating the mans face.

The sad thing is, if someone had reported the naked man walking, this could have been avoided. But in Miami, seeing things like a naked man walking, or an attack on another person is the norm. You can even see a cyclist and car drive by as he is eating the other man and neither stopped. Not saying I would necessarily stop either, but the attack went on 18 minutes before cops arrived.
