    Unbelievably Selfish

    Sometimes it blows my mind that we share the planet with people like the XDR-TB infected lawyer from Atlanta who KNOWINGLY put 100's (maybe 1000's) of people at direct risk of infection, simply because he wanted to go on his G.D. honeymoon.

    I hope his new bride realizes that she just married a world class pr1ck.

    Ohh, and how does sociopath describe himself?

    Everyone on those planes is going to have a very disconcerting 1 to 2 years of not knowing if they have this deadly disease.

    I was about to say the same thing!!! This a-hole should be sued by everyone on the plane.
    what a selfish jerk...I'd stomp his ass if he did that to my family

    QUOTE:
    Speaker knew he had TB when he flew from Atlanta to Europe for his wedding and honeymoon, but he didn't find out until he was already there that it was an extensively drug-resistant strain considered especially dangerous.

    Despite warning from federal health officials not to board another long flight, Speaker flew home for treatment.

    I'm not sure we know both sides to the story here. Plus it sounds like the news media is in scare-hype mode.

    I saw an interview with someone who sat near patient zero. Said people backed up from him when he told his coworkers what happened. I would have walked out of the office at that instance and never come back.

    "How was your vacation?"
    "Oh I may have been infected with highly drug resistance TB, yours?"

    I agree, patient zero is an unmitigated jackass. One of his quotes I saw on ABC last night, (paraphrased) "I did everything the CDC told me, except not travel or stay in isolation when they found out I was in Italy".

    I just listened to an press conference with one of the fed docs that contacted this man prior to his trip and they had told him all the reasons why he should NOT fly.

    Then, when they found out it was XDR form, they contacted him in Italy and directed him to turn himself in, and told him to ABSOLUTELY not fly again, and why it could precipitate the deaths of many people, and the pr1ck couldn't of cared less.

    What other side is there?

    It's the hair, the slightly sunburned face, and the confounded look on his face.


    You don't agree?

    If he infects other people, his deliberate actions may cost lives. Arsonists who kill people in the fires they set are responsible for the deaths they cause; this guy should be held accountable if there is a TB spread.

    However, I don't have all the facts... the press is in fearmongering mode, so I have no clue what the real story is.

    I would sue him and try to get him to pay any and all medical bills associated with checking/treatment for TB or related conditions.

    They also preach to people in over-populated countries about the evils of condom usage, so they probably are on the same page about communicable diseases.

    I think this guy needs to be bathed in a bath that is saturated to the limits with the fungus that cuases athlete's foot/jock itch/etc, then kept in isolation day after day with only a daily shower (clean water, but no towel...lat that fungus thrive!).

    Keep this up for a few months....if he hasn't scratched himself to the bones, he will probably understand how bad it sucks to be force-infected like he just possibly did to others.

    You might have something there.

    As far as what I wrote earlier, I'm sure all the health agency people are in full CYA mode and are thus trying to pin the blame on this guy when their system obviously broke down.

    Morover, I'm not a TB expert (like everyone has suddenly become) but it seems to me the media's "we're all going to die" coverage is just the latest example of catastrophe overkill.

    Seriously, how is this guy any more deserving of national scorn than anyone who drives home after too many drinks? Both are putting innocent lives at risk.

    I think that the airlines involved should contact everyone on either of those flights and give every passenger, flight crew member, etc. who was on the plane this guys contact info and a list of lawyers to contact to sue him.
