I know, I know! Just when you thought we were over the Zombie Apocalypse from the Miami man who ate the face of an homeless man during Memorial day weekend, here we go again. According to KATC, police say a Lafayette Parish man, Carl Jacquneaux bit a chuck of his neighbor’s face, Todd Credeur over a domestic issue. So far, it appears that Jacquneaux was under the influence of synthetic drugs, but awaiting further reports. See video report below.
I do hope this “Zombie fad?” the media and businesses have been promoting regains some perspective. Sure, it’s understandable that businesses and other organizations want to promote what the public wants to increase their revenue; but, real people are dying or getting severely hurt. Synthetic drugs such as Ivory Soft, K2, Spice, and etc. are real drugs that have real effects on the body.
The public’s reactions to the Zombie Apocalypse has me concerned too. There are folks, for whatever reason, believe Zombies are real and feel the need to protect their families by buying Zombie guns. Yes, there are Zombie guns and plenty of encouragement to those whom may want to buy one or more of these guns. Take a look at Gun Gripes Episode 22, The Zombie Phenomenon.

There are also people that want to be part of the Zombie phenomenon. But what does that mean? Role-playing? Zombie groups? Or, perhaps, people want to get in on the “flesh-eating” action? To be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with role-playing, as long as people realize that it’s fiction. However, if people are wanting to make fiction, or shall I say, ‘Hollywood’ real, then we may have problem with “copycat” episodes and “Zombie attacks” will be on the rise, continuing to feed into the Zombie frenzy. I hope I’m wrong (please let me be wrong!). But, my sense is that people are looking for purpose in their lives and or a sense of belongingness. Who can blame them? Our country is recovering from a recession with so many people out of work or have lost their homes. I think these two examples (besides the natural everyday challenges of life) would motivate people to look for something of “importance” or perhaps a distraction–Hey, what about the Zombie Apocalypse!?!
Carl Jacquneaux, Louisiana man, arrested after alleged face-bite attack

(CBS) Police in Louisiana say a 43-year-old Lafayette Parish man was arrested after he bit off a piece of another man’s face during an attack, reports ABC affiliate KATC. According to the station, police say Carl Jacquneaux knew victim Todd Credeur whom he attacked over a domestic issue. Credeur told the station that he was working in his front yard in the town of Scott when Jacquneaux appeared and attacked him, biting him on the face.
Credeur says he was able to fend off the attack with wasp spray, according to KATC. Jacquneaux then reportedly left and went to another acquaintance’s home in the nearby town of Carencro and held a victim at knife point before stealing a handgun, KATC reports. Police reportedly arrested Jacquneaux at the acquaintance’s house. Police say it is unknown if Jacquneaux was under the influence of drugs because no blood tests were performed before he was taken to jail, the station reports.
Jacquneaux is reportedly charged with aggravated burglary, simple battery, violation of probation, aggravated second degree battery and violation of protective orders. He remains in the Lafayette Parish Jail with a $312,500 bond, KATC reports. Credeur is now reportedly at home recovering from the attack .
