I heard about this awhile ago. It probably is a coincidence. The perps behind the crimes weren't truly zombies or anything, so yeah. Just messed up people.
Seriously, coincidences happen all the time.
Just recently in Kansas a man was arrested for attacking and biting a Walmart employee.
I didn't hear about that one in KC. While pretty crazy, I think the worse thing to have come out of the area is the boy who was set on fire. Maybe all these people are just getting large press coverage because of a slow news cycle.
Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.
^ Unless the lack of "interesting" news is what turned them into zombies, and after reading this news article, can't one guy just worry about one problem instead of two because of the proposed zombie apocalypse?
Here's a really funny article on cracked on that phenomenon.
So no, just as the crime rates in the US and Canada aren't increasing but only seem to have gotten so much larger in the past few years, this is simply the media covering what gets them an audience. It doesn't necessarily mean its representative of what's actually going on in the world. I guess we're too bored of plain old violence, so now we need Zombie violence? What's next? Articles about Zombie on Zombie violence?
Obviously zombies are what's on people's mind otherwise the thread title should be drawing parallels to the Luka Magnotta incident (also mentioned in the article) since it seems more similar to that than a freak attack by a crazed person.

A Zombie Outbreak would suck, because a lot of innocent people would get shot by overzealous, paranoid gun owners looking for any little sign of "zombification" and going to town.
It's literally the Zimmerman issue, only with the walking dead as opposed to minorities.
