This very odd "Crazies/zombie-like" behavior seems to be spreading. The most recent incident happened in Hackensack, NJ, where 43-year-old Wayne Carter ended up stabbing himself all over his body and threw his own intestines at the police officers trying to subdue him. Here's how it all went down:
A call was made to local police officers around 10 p.m. this past Sunday, May 27th, by someone claiming that Wayne Carter was holding a knife and threatening to hurt himself. Police officers responded to the distress call and arrived at his Clay Street home and entered his home. They had to actually kick in the door to his bedroom because Wayne blocked it off with various furniture, according to Lt. John Heinemann.
The officers entered his room and found Wayne sitting in the corner of his room with the knife in his hand. As they approached, he rose to his feet and began screaming wildly at the police and proceeded to stab himself all over his body. He continued screaming at the officers and even though he stabbed himself over and over again, he didn't seem to be feeling any pain from the self-inflicted knife wounds. Lt. Heinemann said that one officer noticed that his intestines were protruding out of his skin from one of the knife wounds, and Wayne actually ripped off some of his own skin and intestines and threw it at the officers when they tried to get close to him!
On top of that, they ended up spraying him with TWO cans of pepper spray, but it had no effect on Wayne whatsoever! He maintained his grip on the 12-inch knife and the officers were left with no choice but to retreat. They called in the Bergen County SWAT Team who rushed into the home and managed to subdue Wayne in order to rush him to the Hackensack University Medical Center. An unnamed police official stated, "The scene was a bloody mess. The SWAT team members had to be decontaminated due to the amount of blood."
Wayne has undergone emergency surgery, but so far remains in critical condition. Apparently he has a history of "disorderly conduct" and "resisting arrest" and has allegedly been taken to the hospital for "psychiatric reasons" before. All in all, this sounds like something a little beyond your normal "psychiatric problems."
What do you think? Do you think a zombie apocalypse is upon us?
