Start Of The Zombie Apocalypse Caught On Tape

Tyler Durden's picture


For those who missed it, the weekend's most morbid, and harbingery, story was the official launch of the zombie apocalypse.

Per the Miami Herald:

It was a scene as creepy as a Hannibal Lecter movie.


One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked, and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp Saturday, police said.


The horror began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building.


According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away.Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.


The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.


Miami police were on the scene, which was just south of The Miami Herald building on Biscayne Boulevard. The naked man who was killed lay face down on the pedestrian walkway just below the newspaper’s two-story parking garage. Police have requested The Herald’s video surveillance tapes.


The other man was transported to the hospital with critical injuries, according to police. Their identities were not released.

The CCTV camera caught it all.

And to think people made fun of us when, again just slightly ahead of the curve, we gave readers advice on surviving the Zombie Apocalypse:

Maybe they exchanged Krugmans alien invasion to a Zombie one.

Some fun

What are the tax implications of the zombie apocalypse?

The only certainties in life are death and taxes, but how do you handle the taxes when death doesn't go quite as planned? Law professor Adam Chodorow takes a stab at estate planning for the undead in perhaps the only legal paper to cite both the Internal Revenue Code and Weekend at Bernie's II.

Photo by Daniel Hollister.

Chodorow, a professor at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, authored the paper "Death and Taxes...and Zombies," which will appear in a forthcoming issue of the Iowa Law Review. Chodorow notes that, while the CDC is ready for the zombie apocalypse, the United States Congress has shown no such foresight, leaving us to question whether zombies, vampires, and other members of the undead class will have their estates transferred upon undeath or be able to collect income tax. To rectify that oversight, Chodorow looks, in all earnestness, to existing legal precedent.

After laying out the differences between different zombie types — notably the difference between zombies under the power of others and self-motivating zombies — Chodorow examines the various tax implications of zombification. He goes through the various reasons why a zombie may or may not be considered the same person it was prior to death, noting that a person's transformation into a raving cannibal with no heartbeat might not be enough to consider them legally deceased:

...[I]t seems a stretch to conclude that those who transform seamlessly into zombies should be considered dead. They never lose heart or brain function, though they now function quite differently from before. While it might be tempting to declare them dead, significant line-drawing problems would arise as one tried to distinguish between zombies and those who have suffered some mental or physical breakdown. Put differently, were such zombies to be considered dead because they suffered a personality change, physical disability, or decreased brain function, the door would be open to declaring dead a wide range of people currently considered to be alive.

For instance, someone who suffers a stroke and loses the ability to speak, walks with a shuffle, and undergoes a significant personality change is clearly alive under any existing state standard. Similarly, someone with Alzheimer's or in a vegetative state, whose brain stem alone survives, is considered alive. It would be inconsistent to classify those people as alive, while at the same time classifying those infected by a zombie virus as dead. One difference may be that those afflicted by strokes would likely not develop an overpowering hunger for brains. However, developing a taste for brains cannot be the determinant of whether someone is dead or considered a zombie. The members of numerous aboriginal tribes and Hannibal Lecter practiced cannibalism and would not qualify as either dead or zombies.

He also notes that some people might specifically try to become a zombie — or avoid becoming a zombie — for estate planning purposes:

If people who become zombies are considered dead for federal estate and income tax purposes, little will have changed. Becoming a zombie will be no different than dying from pneumonia, aside from the part where you eat your friends and loved ones. However, other outcomes are possible. For instance, if someone who becomes a zombie is considered not dead (as opposed to undead) for estate and income tax purposes, neither the estate tax nor the basis reset would be triggered. We would be in a situation similar to the one Congress negotiated as part of the Bush tax cuts, which relaxed the basis reset rules in conjunction with eliminating the estate tax. This could turn out well for those intending to hold on to their property for a long time. Alternately, both the estate tax and basis reset could kick in only when a person's zombie was dispatched. Were this the rule, people might have incentives to become zombies to delay the application of the estate tax.

However, these are not the only two options. Until now, the estate tax and income tax have been construed consistently with regard to who is a decedent. This need not be the case. In other words, it is possible that the transition from alive to undead could trigger the estate tax but not the basis reset. Were this to happen, taxpayers who become zombies would be hit twice, and years of tax planning could go out the window. Alternately, becoming a zombie could be deemed not to trigger the estate tax but to allow basis reset. Under this scenario, the government would forego two opportunities to raise revenue, significantly increasing whatever the then current deficit would be, especially if the outbreak were severe.

He also tackles other tricky aspects of zombification: whether a person is still considered married if their spouse has become undead, the administrative problems of resurrecting dead social security numbers, and the difficulty many zombies would likely have in filling out income tax forms.

Chodorow then moves on the questions of other undead creatures, namely vampires and ghosts. He notes that vampires would be more likely to be considered non-deceased than zombies would, given that vampires retain their faculties and reproduce, both of which are strong indicators of life. Perhaps the most interesting part of the vampiric tax questions, though, is the implications of the Defense of Marriage Act on marital inheritance. If a vampire is considered non-deceased for the purposes of her estate — which is to say, she retains ownership of her property in undeath — but is no longer considered a "woman" under DOMA, then her marriage might be considered void when she becomes a vampire. If she was then granted the "True Death" (to borrow a phrase from True Blood), her former husband wouldn't inherit her property as a spouse, and wouldn't be able to take advantage of the estate and gift tax marital deduction.

Incidentally, some of these questions may not be entirely fanciful if certain bodily preservation and revival technologies pan out. When I mentioned this paper to an estate planning acquaintance of mine, she told me that she once had a client who was a member of a cryogenics society, and she had to explain to him that she couldn't guarantee that the law would recognize the person revived through cryogenic procedures as the same person who had died. If we managed to reach a point where we could preserve and then revive a dead body, analyses like Chodorow's, silly as it may seem, would be relevant to discussions about marriage, property, inheritance, and legal identity.

"Death and Taxes...and Zombies" is available for free and deserves a read-through, if only for footnotes like this one:

Count Chocula has clearly made a killing on his cereal, and rumor has it that even the Count Who Counts is loaded. While harnessed to the greater good of teaching children to count, it turns out that the Count's OCD-like fascination with numbers turns out to be typical of vampires. See BARBER, supra note 76, at 49 (describing a tradition where people placed bags of grain near a suspected vampire's grave on the theory that the vampire would be compelled to count all the grains, thus occupying the vampire through the night and precluding other, less socially beneficial activities). Batman is also well off, owning a mansion, the bat cave, and all the great toys at his disposal. However, all evidence suggests that he is not a vampire, just some guy who likes to dress up in tights and pretend to be bat-like.

Well ~ There's only a month to go before the London Olympics...

Maybe they're getting scared and need a PLAN B in case the alien invasion ends up looking like the animation on the intro to "Land of the Lost"...

Perhaps zombies will infiltrate 'the tube' & London underground... Or maybe they'll just package up all the last three in one and say that the H1N1 virus has infected people around the globe, turning them into zombies, & the space aliens are responsible...

The police theorize Cocaine Psychosis. There is a new type of zombie no one made a movie of: naked crackhead zombies.

Then I thought, who would benefit from this? Everyone knows that any $20 bill in circulation long enough has trace amounts of cocaine on it. If a contaminated batch of crack cocaine causes a couple 'zombie' -like attacks, and then the news mentions again and again how paper money has the cocaine on it, people will get scared of paper money, and thus prevent bank runs by keeping cash in the bank and using debit/credit cards.

For those that are paranoid about leaving a trace from watching the video, use a video caching/proxy.  Dozens of good ones kicking around that will allow you to download the video without leaving a "fingerprint".


Just search youtube proxy in google and turn on Private browsing.  Some services are unavailable from country to country or use one of the thousands of proxy services.


NDAA and CISPA is online, so anything you are doing with any of the first tier services are all tracked and logged.

Cocaine traces are often used as the excuse to confiscate large amounts of cash from motorists.  Highway robbery.  They even have cash sniffing dogs for this.  Due to some residual fear of the 4th Amendment, they charge the CASH itself with the crime.  Since a wad of cash can't sue in court, you're SOL.

1 (unarmed) man biting another (unarmed) man - and you needed to shoot one of them?


I can take down an unarmed man no trouble - no shooting required.


Trigger happy cops is the problem here - I thought the police can only shoot you if you present an immediate danger to them or the public.

The assessment of the situation is totally left to US citizen police officers'subjectivity.

As such, it is not possible to tell that no situation is dangerous as it is a matter of subjectivity.

A simple 3 seconds delay in answering a demand by a US citizen police officer can be deemed to be danger as one could use that 3 seconds to plan an attack on the cop.

Comply immediately with any demand made by a US citizen police officer.

In this case, the man was continuing to eat another, living man's face. Stopping him as fast as possible is priority number one.

Not getting yourself injured or infected is also high priority.

When I was studying Japanese in Tokyo, one of my classmates was a Chinese fellow who identified himself as a policeman.  The young man was certifiably retarded, as attested to by his Chinese classmates who vainly struggled all year to help him.  I asked some of them later how such a person became a policeman in China.  They had two words for me:  "Rural jurisdiction" and "Daddy." (Yes that was 3 words) They said such acumen was typical among their policing class - a fact attested to by myself when I actually spent time in the Middle Kingdom.  The federal jackboots (PAP) are another story however...

Pcp was really big in the 1990s when I worked in trauma. We used to call in this 6'6" 400 lb black orderly to help subdue combative patients. I saw him picked up and thrown against a wall by a person high on PCP! You have no idea how strong these people are who are on it, they think they are superman ( without all the nicer qualities). If this man was on PCP there was no other option but to shoot. That it took 6 rounds to do so clinches it for me. What a sick world this has become.

I am always quick to bash on cops when due, but in this case, I completely agree with you. Man eating another man's face = shoot 'til he drops.

Why would the cop put himself in harms way when shooting is effective? What I'm wondering though is why the police don't carry ammo which can put someone down with one shot.

Of course if the victim had been carrying an appropriate weapon he would still have his face.


Police can't protect you, at best, all they can do is clean up afterwards.

the Police are far too trigger-happy at any incident, i've more fear for them than any criminal gang, nearly every Dept of Govt is out-of-f'ing-control

Well I can assure you if someone is trying to eat my face, they won't have to wait for the police before I send that crazy SOB to see his maker. Damn, think Ill go load another hundred rounds of 45 long colt.

The only thing I see wrong with the officers actions is that he still has rounds left in the chamber. Good job Blue.

I'm usually the first to agree that the cops (at nearly every level) in this country are way out of control. But in this case, shooting the guy was the right move. He was eating another man alive. There is nothing more that can be done with someone like that.

And if the guy had had a knife, should the cop have put down his piece and pulled out a blade to make it a "fair fight" in your mind?

The cop's actions in this instance are hardly an example of a department "out-of-f'ing-control."

With so many actual examples of inappropriate force, why hoist yourself on this petard?

The first shot may have been non-fatal on purpose, to force the attacker to stop. Once the officer saw that being shot had no impact, he probably emptied his clip into the attacker.

There have been several high profile incidents recently where the police over-reacted and used excessive force. This, in my view, is not one of them. Just put yourself in the position of the guy walking along, minding his own business, when a naked man runs up and starts eating your face.

There is no human mind in charge, simply a human body with feral instincts, huge adrenaline rush and powerful strength all induced by drugs.

They do not feel a taser or OC.

The only thing that will actually put  such a suspect on the ground is a .45 ACP.

Sorry writingsonthewall, (or is that KickAss ?) but your post sucks...

1. someone chewing the face off another person kinda qualifies as being a 'danger to the public' (so he can therefore be shot according to your rules of engagement)

2. Were it one of your family members being eaten, would you be happier with the cops softly trying to cajole him away or would you settle for a couple of bullets to the attackers head

Not a fan of the cops personally, but, well... I think they were justified here.

Zombieland had some shitty rules.

Like the running thing.

All that gets you is tired out in a sea of zombies. Run full tilt into a dead with a swarm at your back and you will soon regret the cardio rule.

Zombies are slow, fast walk and use a hammer to the head.

Something that doesn't get stuck.

Relying on head shots wastes ammo,have to be pretty accurate to make every shot count, very hard under pressure. When you are out of ammo will you be beating them to death with the gun, simply making it another hammer.

Save your rounds for the feral humans who want to ass rape you.

Twat. For all your talk, you've clearly never been in an altercation involving a drugged-up madman on a violent rampage, for even suggesting the use of a truncheon or, more ridiculously still, grappling in an attempt to subdue him, never mind a single officer doing it quickly enough to save the life of the person whose face the lunatic was busy chewing off. Although you don't understand what that means either, as you talk of biting as though it were a a two-year old nipping you on your arm.

By the way, the techniques of Ju-Jitsu used by the Samurai were intended to kill, not to disable, an opponent.

Hardly a loss for society if the perpetrator was eating one's FUCKING face.

The cop can hardly be described as "trigger-happy" since the man/undead failed to stop after the first shot, and only did so after the subsequent rest of the half dozen bullets arrived.

Also, per the historically accurate TV show of "Walking Dead" aired by AMC, it clearly states that you need to aim straight for the undead's head in order to render him incapacitated. So if you ever face a zombie eating someone's face in a parking lot, feel free to engage into the philosophical debate of using a katana or krav maga instead of shooting him/it.

Also, is 'doughnut' or colloquially - donut.

Stage 5: Collapse. Faith in the goodness of humanity is lost.

You are absolutely correct, when someone is eating your face off, I hope the police take a good 5 minutes trying to talk the guy down before shooting him. Maybe wait for backup to arrive, try a taser, etc.

You would rather them shoot the zombie with a taser? You better hope he doesn't have your nose in his mouth at that time. The 50k volts are going to make his jaw slam shut even tighter around your clown nose.

Or maybe hit him with a baton? Sure, a couple of strikes to the leg should stop him from eating your face. haha.

Maybe you would like him to spray you both with pepper spray? Hmm, I dont think that would feel too good on your freshly lacerated nose. The pain of the pepper spray should slow down the zombie though and make him reconsider his face-biting attack. "I'm sorry officer, I was just very hungry, but that pepper spray has caused me to reconsider eating this human. I submit!"

Randy Newman's song Naked Man

Old lady lost in the city
In the middle of a cold cold night
It was fourteen below and the wind start to blow
There wasn't a boy scout in sight
Pull down the shades cause he's comin'
Turn out the lights cause he's here
Runnin' hard down the street
Through the snow and the sleet
On the coldest night of the year

Beware beware beware of the Naked Man

Old lady head up toward Broad Street
Shufflin' uptown against the wind
She had started to cry-wiped a tear from her eye
And looked back to see where she had been

Old lady stand on the corner
With a purse in her hand
She does not know but in a minute or so
She will be robbed by a naked man

Beware, Beware of the naked man

Old lady lean against a lamppost
Starin' down at the ground on which she stand
She look up and scream
For the lamplight's beam
There stood the famous Naked Man

He say, "They found out about my sister
And kicked me out of the Navy,
They would have strung me up if they could.
I tried to explain that we were both of us lazy
And were doing the best we could."

He faked to the left and he faked to the right
And he snatched the purse fromere hand
"Someone stop me," he cried,
As he faded from sight,
"Won't nobody help a naked man?"
"Won't nobody help a naked man?"
