If you wanted to open an educational thread about the effects of drugs on people and society as a whole, then perhaps you should have re-thought your first post so that it would sound less like a scared child and more like an adult that wanted to educate people about and/or discuss the dangers of drug use and how common it is becoming.

This VV, to me, sounds exactly like what you are claiming you are not, which is afraid and frantic.

I'm all for discussing the state of the world in an educated and rational way, but that was not the way that this thread was started.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah, I posted before reading your comment. Disgusting. Poor guy (the homeless one)!

as for why the attacker was naked, the theory thus far is that the drugs had caused his body to basically bake internally, and that many people who go into these drug induced crazes often rip their clothes off in an attempt to cool off.

i was reading other related articles about incidents such as these and it is not the first time this has happened in Miami. this is likely the worst though. One man (earlier this year i believe) had reported that he was attacked by a naked man who was trying to bite his neck and rip off his clothes. could definitely be caused by the same drug.

Curious what kind of high these people get that makes them want to take this stuff. I would assume a person would go into some kind of "other reality" where what "is" happening in the "real world" is so far away they can't even see it. Perhaps to escape the terrors of their sober life. Interesting.

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.

AP, its people like you who give Christians a bad rep...

You aren't the only one with brothers (or younger siblings) who can get into this crap. And I hate to break it to you, but drugs have been around for a LONG time.. and I personally think they were just as accessible (if not more so) when they were first created as they are now. You have every right to be worried that something bad could happen but that doesn't mean that no one else is concerned just because they aren't visibly freaking out and making comparisons to the Bible that aren't even there.

Speed, the reason the attacker was naked was thought to be because he was baking internally and his reaction to cool down was to strip off his clothes. At least thats what I read on one of the articles about it.

I know what 'baking internally' feels like; I have hot flashes! I've often felt like tearing off my clothes and lying on a block of ice nekkid in front of a fan!

Yes, this guy was obviously under the influence of something extremely potent, but it's also been stated that he didn't have the best mental state to start with. Mental disorder + drugs = crazy and dangerous.

However, that doesn't mean we need to barricade ourselves and loved ones in our homes, and act as if the Apocalypse is upon us. Being smart, taking precautions, and living our lives is the only way to go. If I had the mindset that every time I left the house something horrible was going to happen to me, I'd be an emotional wreck. Bad stuff happens all the time. Doesn't mean we have to live in fear and give in to hysteria and hyperbole.

Insanity is insanity, it's just made worse by the use of drugs.

This news story is shocking, but at the same time I think it's only getting as much press as it is because of the zombie apocalypse stuff that's been a popular joke lately. There are terrible things that happen in the world every single day.

Is it not terrifying that someone you love could become a victim of these drugs or a user of these drugs? Is it not terrifying to think that this could happen on YOUR back door or to YOUR family? I don't want to live in a world like that, and while no, I don't go around cowering or hiding, I believe a healthy awareness and yes fear, are two things that are going to stop things like this from happening again.
Also, as you've so eloquently informed me, I don't need to educate anyone one on any of this, if simply for the fact that I don't need to be judged for my feelings or opinions on the subject. This thread was for DISCUSSION, not education. If you have something to say about the incident, or a subject on this thread, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, show me the same respect I'm showing you, and keep your opinions of me and what I "sound like" to yourself.

I can't imagine what that guys life is going to be like from here on out, if he pulls through.

Your brother could also walk into the street and get hit by a bus tomorrow. Life has risks.. and being educated is a great step in helping them to realize that drugs are bad. Im going to assume its a safe bet that most people on drugs were not forced to take them. And the chances of being attacked by someone who is on them is pretty darn slim (unless you hang out with a bunch of druggies).

Based on one of your earlier threads, you're a supposed recovering junkie yourself. I'd think that would make you MORE able to handle what life throws at you, not be a cowering mess and seeing havoc on every corner.

Most of those who are recovering addicts don't go around looking for the sky to fall. They tend to generally be grateful for the life they've been given back, and vow to live it to the fullest. Very few of them scream doom and gloom at every news story.

I've been involved with addicts; some as family members, and others as friends and lovers. Those who have gone on to recovery are some of the happiest, most pleasant people I've ever known. Those who haven't are the ones who are miserable, hate life, and see nothing but the bad.

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