Eeww… Gross! Ringworm Outbreak at Occupy Santa Cruz (Video)

The 99%’ers have ringworm.
City officials are reporting a ringworm outbreak at Occupy Santa Cruz.
Via Verum Serum:

They also are reporting a possible scabies outbreak.
The Santa Cruz Sentinel reported:

Police issued four tickets from Friday to Monday morning to people smoking in the park and having an open flame, police spokesman Zach Friend said. One woman also was arrested for an outstanding warrant.

Sheriff’s deputy April Skalland said deputies have issued 16 tickets for illegal lodging and arrested seven people around the protest since Oct. 7. The arrests have been for being drunk in public, being under the influence of drugs, and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, Skalland said.

Police said there have been reports of ringworm and scabies at the camp in recent days. County officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment about health conditions at the camp.

Lane said he planned to continue talks with Occupy campers this week.

Yup. They’re just like the tea party.

    OWS is turning into a giant ad for getting a job and working your way up so you can afford a house with plumbing in a clean neighborhood, and topical medications to help you fit in.

    I dunno. What self respecting ringworm would show up there?

  • Pensieve

    Wow! I didn’t know ringworm was considered a “low” kind of problem. It’s not a “worm” after all, but fungal. I have gotten it three times in my life on my arms, and always from dogs or cats. My understanding is you’re either susceptible to this fungus or you aren’t, and my experience is that other people who care for the same animals go unscathed while I get ringworm. Since people always laugh at me for my fastidiousness and call me names like “Monk,” I’ve never associated it with dirtiness. If I see a cat with a patch of ringworm now, I give a large berth, because it seems very, very easy for someone like me to “catch.”

    One OWS kook made me laugh yesterday. I was watching the news and saw one OWS freak being interviewed and he “we are not leaving, this park is ours now, we won it” as if it was an accomplishment of revolutionary proportions.

    The reality is that these OWS types are the bottom feeders of America. They are the freaks and weirdos in our society on grand display. They represent the worst of our nation and seriously there is no comparison or relationship on any level to the Tea Party. The OWS dregs are George Soros hippie freaks of 2011 doing his bidding.

    Spray these freaks down with Lysol and disperse them to their respective circus acts.

    Ringworm is really just a fungal skin infection, like athlete’s foot, except it’s on other parts of the body like the trunk or arms.

    I don’t know how it got the name “ringworm,” but has nothing to do with worms.

    You’re more susceptible to ringworm if you don’t bathe regularly and/or you’re immunocompromised. Perhaps some of those unwashed OWS protesters are HIV positive.

    I was hoping we’d see dysentery and cholera by now. That might be enough of a public health hazard to make even the most spineless of mayors stand up to this bunch. Instead now we’re going to have to put up with an effort to shut down Wall Street and bridges, and be treated to endless whining and temper tantrums by these babies.

    Nice set-up for the 2012 elections.

    Ringworm is so hard to get rid of, even when you’re treating it daily in a clean environment. It’s highly contagious and you can spread it to other parts of your body because it itches like crazy.

    Occupy Santa Cruz??? Occupy Monterrey (the “Club Med of protests)”??? Please do not misconstrue my comments, but what the heck is there to protest in Santa Cruz and Monterrey??? These are both beautiful places where life seems pretty darned nice. No evil Wall Streeters here. No government bureaucrats, toadies, lobbyists, etc. It almost seems like these clowns are just looking for a really nice place to camp out, far from the hurly burly of NYC, Chicago, Wash. D.C., etc., and give it some “relevance” (hence the old guy with the white hair, whiny voice, and slightly out of tune guitar). I mean, c’mon, what’s next, occupy Sonoma? Occupy Boulder? Occupy Jellystone Park? (Hey Yogi, those fat cats on Wall Street are taking food from the mouths of 99 percenters like you and me!)

This is the kind of society the Flea Party has planned for us.

    Note that in recent pictures of these protests you see mostly males; all the young women who aren’t interested in being raped by an unemployable male with ringworm and scabies have long since left.

    wow, where did any Tea Party protest become like this.
    There was no robbery, no rape, no hard drug use, no urinating in public,
    they went home at night or hotel, they did not camp out for months.
    The Tea Party caused no destruction of property,

    and look at the Occupy protest, multiple rapes, Drugs of all types, homeless people there for a place to sleep, decent food, drugs and sex. Then the hard core, wanting to do damage, go on rampages – – – force the police into actions then blame the police.

    the two are not even close to being the same – – – –
    as for generators, carbon monoxide poison, gas that can be used as weapons, as in comment about Macy’s burn to the ground. – – – extension cords not protected and the weather getting wet,

    Disease spreading, from the conditions. and free love. STD’s,

    I half expect some of the protesters to sue the city for no making them clean up the place better or allowing the protesters to stay. Those that got raped, sick, or attacked, that is.

    Occupy is nothing like the tea party. – – – they made noise, got media attention, and then voted for what they wanted. Not a person was harmed. no one got sick, can the Occupy protest say this – – – – they can not!

  • Jay

    To add a dash of actual truth to this circle jerk, there have been ZERO confirmed cases of ringworm or scabies at Occupy Santa Cruz. The medical working group, with the support of the local medical community, is prepared to deal with any incident that actually does occur.

    The cops were asked if they heard anything about the rumors, which they previously had not.

    This is a non-story.

    PS: Maalox is used as a tear gas remedy. Not a surprising item to have on hand given repeated use of these weapons and harsher in Oakland.

  • Except ringworm/scabies outbreak at #OccupySantaCruz was a lie spread by PD. Early last week, Santa Cruz Police officials reported an outbreak of contagious disease at Occupy Santa Cruz, later admitted to be mere rumor. After a visit by county health officers, no tests for scabies or ringworm were ordered or conducted.

    “We’ve seen this tactic used at occupations all over the country in recent weeks,” said Burchfield, “Police and city officials exaggerate health and safety concerns, then use these claims as a pretext for attacking the occupations. It’s an attempt to portray protesters as homeless, hippies, drug users, violent people, and anarchists.
