No, I’m not talking about Ferguson. I’m talking about Liberia
Liberian officials fear Ebola could soon spread through the capital’s largest slum after residents raided a quarantine center for suspected patients and took items including bloody sheets and mattresses.
Um, guys? I get that you’re angry that potentially infected people were brought into your community, but I’m thinking you didn’t really consider the ramifications of you actions. I mean, your stated goal of “No Ebola in West Point” was a rational one. Looting infectious materials and spreading them around the community seems rather contrary.
But then again, I never really understood how looting and rioting ever solved anything or got anyone closer to their goals. Regardless of whether or not the cause is just. I suppose if your goal was “Ebola for Everyone!” this would be an excellent way to achieve it. Personally, I think I’m staying the hell away from Liberia for the foreseeable future. Not that I was planning a trip anyway, but you never know. I could wake up tomorrow and decide that bleeding out my eyes would be an excellent experience to have.
*checks bucket list*
Nope, it’s not on there anywhere. In fact, it’s listed over there in the ‘Nope’ column. Right after ‘drowning’ and before ‘fire, death by’.
Is it just me, or is someone running through the streets trailing bedding infected with Ebola darn near close to a zombie problem?
