The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for tuberculosis.There's a reason we don't all camp out in public parks whenever we want, live in tents in winter and generally not wash. Its called DISEASE. You camp out in winter in large numbers, good chance you're going to get sick and die.
The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease. WGCL reports that a health department spokeswoman said there is a possibility that both Occupy Atlanta protesters and the homeless people in the shelter may still be at risk since tuberculosis is contracted through air contact.
I'm waiting for these dumb bunnies to rediscover the need for FIRE REGULATIONS next. Open cooking fire, closely spaced nylon tents, maybe a couple dozen propane canisters and a nice can of camp fuel or two, BOOM baby!
If you build it they will come... and burn it down.
