Have you had your “WTF” moment of the day? Well here it is. A comic published by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) in 2011 centers around a “zombie pandemic” that takes place specifically in the South-East of the United States. (Check out the comic on the CDC’s official website). The South-East is where we can find Miami, the city in which recent cases of “zombie-like attacks” took place in the past week. A third case just recently occurred in Miami.
Copycat ‘zombie attack’: Miami homeless man high on ‘Cloud 9′ drug growls, tries to bite police officer
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have said there’s no threat of a “zombie apocalypse,” but Miami police might disagree.
A homeless man who was busted hassling customers in a Boston Market in North Miami Beach on Saturday told police he wanted to “eat” them and tried to bite an officer, cops said.
After cops yanked him from the chicken joint and put him in a police cruiser, Brandon De Leon, 21, slammed his head against the plexiglass divider and shouted at officers, “I’m going to eat you,” NBC Miami reported.
He then growled, gnashed his teeth and tried to bite the hand of an officer attempting to treat his head wounds.
“Brandon growled and opened and closed his jaw, slamming his teeth like an animal would,” the report said.
Cops placed restraints on De Leon and fit him with a Hannibal Lecter-style bite mask, the report said.
But once in a jail cell, De Leon continued the flesh-eating act, snarling and growling, police said.
De Leon and Brian Yerdon, 33, who was also arrested, had been guzzling rum and Four Loko before the bust, according to local reports.
Hospital blood tests showed that De Leon was also high on marijuana, Xanax and a designer drug called “Cloud 9″ — known as synthetic pot or herbal incense — which can produce hallucinogenic effects similar to “bath salts,” the drug thought to be connected to last month’s face-eating attack on Miami’s MacArthur Causeway.
North Miami Beach linked the two cases in a department-wide email.
“This bears resemblance to the incident that occurred in the City of Miami last week when a male ate another man’s face,” the email to the officers said, according to WPTV television.
In bond court on Tuesday, De Leon told the judge he didn’t remember anything from that night.
His bond was set at $7,500 on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

While the CDC’s comic is meant to be an “entertaining way to learn about emergency preparedness”, it does feature a rather odd choice of disease. Also, the fact that the story mentions several that the pandemic takes place in the “South-East” is pretty…prophetic.
The rest of the comic is pretty much propaganda for creating and injecting vaccines into people A-S-A-Goddamn-P – exactly as described in my article on the movie Contagion (which was funded by the CDC).
As the news article stated above, the CDC actually went out of its way to state that there is no “zombie virus” spreading in the South-East. If that’s the case, what’s up with this comic? Coincidence? Synchronicity? Or do they know exactly what the hell is going on?
