Family members of the slain “zombie” attacker in Florida claim he read the Bible daily.

Eugene’s mother said police didn’t need to shoot her son.

“They could have tased him,” she told WFOR. “I saw what happened on TV and I started crying.”

Eugene’s girlfriend, who also requested anonymity from WFOR, said the attacker seen in that video was nothing like the man she lived with.

“He loved God. He always read the Bible. He would give you knowledge on the Bible. Everywhere he went his Bible went. When he left he had his Bible in his hand,” the girlfriend is quoted as saying.

“That wasn’t him, that was his body but it wasn’t his spirit. Somebody did this to him,” WFOR quotes her as saying.

I’ll refrain from making any jokes about this, but it does raise an awful lot of questions about what happened.  I’m also curious as to what’s going to happen to the poor homeless man who had most of his face chewed off.  I hope that charitable organizations are lining up to help him.

Yes, that is a common refrain from the family and friends of people convicted of extreme crimes, especially among blacks and latinos. Their spiritual nature is held up as an example of decency.  You can’t really fault them for it though because they have such intense belief in God, it is their main (or only) lens on life.

The homeless man is named Ronald Poppo; according to this article http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/crime/victim-of-miami-zombie-is-a-longtime-homeless-man/1232626  he’s been living on the streets for several decades. IMO, they should shoot that poor SOB - if he survives, he has nothing but misery ahead.

So he read a book about a man who rose from the dead and whose followers weekly engage in a ritual where they say they are literally eating his flesh and drinking his blood…and that is supposed to alleviate the “zombie” label?  She’s not helping.  LOL

Some persons with Schizophrenia, read the Bible daily.  I wonder if the designer drug, that the “zombie” purportedly was on, just synergized an existing or underlying mental health disorder.

I would like to know more about what the difference is between those who have snorted “bath salts” and have not engaged in extreme, bizarre, violent behavior, vs. those who have.

Its very nice and very great forum and post and IMO, they should shoot that poor SOB - if he survives, he has nothing but misery ahead. thanks for giving the helpful information.

From what I heard, they did shoot the face eating zombie guy.  He just looked at the cops, growled, and went back to face eating.  They then shot him until he was dead.  (I wonder if it took a head shot to kill him. That reminds me, I am looking forward to a new seaon of The Walking Dead.)

Unless they are not Catholic, you are unlikely to hear that refrain about a Latino comitting a heinous crime in my experience, most Catholics I know rarely read the bible. They would be more likely to say he ‘loved god’, ‘went to church twice a week’ and ‘took good care of his parents/family’. And the bible-reading refrain is just as applicable to whites in the bible belt.
[edit] for Catholics add ‘said his rosary’....

Church; where sheep congregate to worship a zombie on a stick that turns into a cracker on Sundays…

Maybe the face eating guy was under the delusion that the homeless man was Jesus, and he decided to take communion directly from the source.

Don’t bother trying to make sense of that post from jamesclark780.  He was a spammer, and they just write some short statement that almost never really means anything just so they can attach their spam to it.  His spam was deleted.
