Scared straight.

I went to the store after I got off work tonight. I usually go on my day’s off with my husband, thought I would get a jump on things. Not a lot of people in their this time of night, so I was surprised when this man stopped to talk to me. He said “hi“, and I turned to look at him and replied back. At the same time I said hello I looked down and saw a basket full of chicken , I mean all most up to the top of the cart. I did not think BF, I thought Barbecue , so I said “looks like some one might be enjoying the nice weather with a barbecue. “no” he said “bird flu“. “I’m stocking up“. I said cool and started walking away. He started following me and said “ ya do you know about the BF“, I said “ ya I have heard. Stocking up may help prevent some death if we get quarantined“. He said no I am not saving the chicken I am eating it now, “OK?“ I said ( a weird guy) kept walking(wishing I had my husband their with me) The guy started saying he wanted to catch the BF. That he had a stock pile of Ramify and he wanted to be the first person to get it so he could make sure it got passed around to prove to the world our government can’t handle sh*t. Then he pulled this vile out as he was explaining that it contained the regular flu virus. I left as fast as I could, just started for the door.

Wow, I'd probably have to hit that guy. Was he big? Was there a shovel nearby? We don't need people like that in the world.

I asked Mary to post this in both the News room and the General Discussion room. 
 
This is truly disturbing!!!  Not that I think for a second that it would work, but that there is a nut out there thinking about it and formulating a plan, and acting on said plan.   I'm just grateful he's stupid.  But what if there is someone out there, or several others, or many others with the same thought.
 
Of course, we can also hope that he was just a nut trying to scare someone.

You know.... I was gonna make a joke about "Anybody seen Corn lately" but decided that humor wasn't appropriate to the thread.  But since David did it...
 
Anybody seen Corn lately?
 
Seriously, I have PM'ed Maryk and asked her to take this to the authorities.  This nut needs to be checked out at a minimum and maybe figuratively slapped up side the head.

I think that can be done. I will go to the Police tomorrow. I have written down what i can remember. I am sure someone had to notice a basket full of chicken. Maybe someone knows him.

MaryK...Most groceries have video surveillance camera's (they do it for theft prevention) if you can give as many details as you can, they can pick up the rest.  Key is not to wait 'cause they often reuse tape.

We always looking out for that one crazy guy to do something really nuts.  "The one crazy guy" with a plan is a reality and I am sure there are many in his category.  The police and the FBI deal with them all the time.

Not sure if you called the store as soon as you got yourself to safety, but that is a great thing to do.  If you can't reach the store, that type of situation is ok for 911 --you have no idea what he had in that vial.  He may have been a run of the mill crazy with some colored water or somebody serious with a pathogen.  The cops can sort it out.  Key thing is get safe first, then call.

What an experience!!!!

The man is insane.
 
First, no sane person would volunteer to die such a horrible death as drowning in your own fluids just from h5n1 alone. And volunteering to be Patient Zero for the Pandemic strain? That is just nuts.
 
Second, he wants to prove that the goverment cant handle it? The government already is openly admitting that they cant, they are telling people to prepare and being vocal about telling us we are own our own if Pandemic strkes. His logic is flawed.
 
Sadly here is a man who does not love one single person on earth. If he did, he would do everything in his power to be prepared.
 
And the fact that he would walk up to a total stranger and disclose his diabolical plan just shows that he is a man in crisis, on edge, reaching out, just hoping someone would stop him. Think about it... if you really wanted to do this, would you go around telling strangers about it? You wouldn't, you would just do it. This man on some subconscious level wants to be stopped.
 
Here is a man with no hope, with no love, and is desperate. It is possible that the vial contained nothing dangerous and he is just desperately reaching out (hopefully!). Either way, he has displayed that he is suicidial, potentially homocidal, and needs help. Report him to the authorities, and hopefully they can find him get him the psychological help he needs.

You should have told him not only will he prove our government is inept he will do his small part, as he assumes room temperature, to halt global warming, cut our dependence on fossil fuels and reduce the overpopulation "crisis".

Sounds like that guy was probably mentally ill.  At least he was buying chickens and not going around shooting people.

He probably doesn't even realize that cooking the chickens kills the virus, and not cooking them will give him a really bad case of salmonella poisoning, not the bird flu.

'Oh No!', said Chicken Licken, 'the sky is falling down and I'm on my way to tell the king!'. So Chicken Licken went on his way to tell the King.

On his way, Chicken Licken met Henny Penny.

'Oh! Henny Penny', said Chicken Licken, 'the sky is falling down and I'm on my way to tell the King'.

'Oh No!', said Henny Penny, 'then I'd better come with you".

So Henny Penny and Chicken Licken went on their way to tell the King............

18 men were found willing to burn to death crashing into the World Trade Center on 911. The US military discusses Pandemic Flu as a weapon  at length in their deployment website-"Pandemic Flu as a suicide attack" in response to questions from serviemembers.

Went to the police station this morning. I gave them my statement. Apparently they went to the store last night and questioned the employs who were their ( they were upset that i left a large cart of food for them to put away) Yes they knew the man, a regular in the store. owns a lawn maintenance company. Police went to talk to him. They said he thought i was cute and was just trying to make small talk, said he knew nothing of the BF. Chicken is for a crew party this weekend. he is single and often has the crew and their family over.

I felt like they thought i was the nut case, suggested i see my doctor. I may be stressing my self out with all this talk of BF

As i sit here and think about what happened last night i start to wonder how many people out their who could be thinking along the same lines as this guy. Maybe he was just getting his kicks, like scaring people gets him off, or maybe he really wants to see the Bf erupt into a major killing machine. Can any person who may come in contact with the BF make this mutation happen to where it can easily transmit H2H?
