'The Dead Walk!' in Philadelphia

According to local authorities, there is no reason to panic. But ask any local citizen of Philadelphia today, and they are doing just that.

Reports of sightings and apparent attacks have sharply risen since Thursdays incident on Race Street, involving a loan vigilante style shooting of an incoherent and aggressive homeless man apparently mistaken for an 'undead.' See Zombie Rage report

The police have emphatically denounced that there is an outbreak of Necro-mortosis within the city. However, they do acknowledge that the murder rate has climbed 97% in two days. Currently there are 30 confirmed cases of missing people. Sightings and calls are coming in to police stations around Philadelphia with reports of bodies apparently "rotted standing upright" or "dead but in animated poses," and the local law enforcement are endeavoring to investigate and authenticate them.

This extraordinary cell phone photo (above) was taken by local student Sarah Dimelon, she reports that "a woman ran up to my car, Luckily I had my window up and she just bumped into the glass. Then started vomiting this horrible mess over the window. I drove off as fast as I could"

Police have quarantined the vehicle for further forensic testing

Philadelphia Police try to keep the public calm, but tensions rise in the city today.

Extra UDT (Undead Dispatch Teams) arrived in Philadelphia today.
City Police commissioner Sylvester Johnson says "there is no actual proof of a zombie outbreak, and I ask people to behave rationally and just get home at a decent hour."

The people on the street seem ill at ease living in a post 911 world now including the undead. Local citizen groups insist that the Philadelphia national guard set up defense stations to increase the publics safety and the commissioner granted them this request.

Homeless attacks rise:
Attacks on the homeless have risen sharply within Philadelphia This is due largely to the paranoia sweeping the city. Homeless advocacy groups held an emergency press conference today. "This is wrong. Plain and simple. This is delusional paranoia. Strike out at the weakest and most vulnerable. These men and women are not to blame. It takes seconds to see that they are not infected." said a spokesperson.

Paul Whinston , Social studies and political development Professor at UCLA states "We see this same pattern emerge after any threat to normalcy. The same occurred after 911. People are afraid. They need to feel they have the power to defend themselves. This includes removing the threat from within. Strike out against anyone who doesn't represent you. It's the 'Your either with us, or against us' mentality President Bush touted immediately after the 911 attacks. It immediately locked people into that mind set. This is the same zeitgeist, just a different threat"

Government Statement:
A Department of Home Security spokesperson issued the following statement today: "At this time we have no confirmed reports of any person or persons carrying the Necro-mortosis virus in Philadelphia In fact, we have no confirmed cases within the United States period. However, we encourage people to be vigilant and call the government anonymous tip hotline number of 1 800 155 3219
if you suspect anyone you know of being a possible carrier. We do also stress that you use good judgment. There have been many cases as of late where local authorities have been called to investigate the drunk, disheveled, disoriented, drug addicted or homeless unfortunates. A persons appearance or manner of action should not be the sole impetus for you calling to report. You must have a credible reason for suspicion, otherwise a tremendous amount of police time and resources will be wasted."
