They're esentially going to cut out his lungs. That's really great. Maybe he'll learn to listen to doctor's advice next time since they've had to excise more tissue because of him being a dumbass.

\\hopefully he takes up smoking.

I thought we had agreed upon "TB Dickwad".

+1 anyway

I've been using "TB Asshat"--if we agreed on something else, I didn't get the memo.

And thanks guys. :)

+1 on the headline. He probably is one of the most hated people in the world right now. Plastic surgery might not be a bad idea.

I don't give a rats ass if this guy lives or dies, but I do hope he suffers - A LOT.

Your troll = fail.

People think he is a dickwad for being a selfish koont. No one made any comments about him killing anyone. Just exposing them to the possibility of contracting it when there was absolutely no NEED for him to do so.

I'm still pissed that they won't let me transport a BIC lighter in my checked luggage, but a TB infected douche is free to fly about the country....

Fark the TSA
 
2007-06-15 02:00:22 PM  
From the picture, combined with the fact that he's a lawyer, and that his actions show he has no basic level of concern for other people, I have to lean toward douche. Dickwad works too, though.
 
2007-06-15 02:00:26 PM  
I admit I've been too busy with work, etc. to follow the story much, so what's the deal with the derogatory comments about this guy? As I understand it he was told he was good to fly, so he flew.
 
2007-06-15 02:00:30 PM  
I wouldn't be surprised if he's getting some twisted pleasure out of all the attention he's getting, and is actively courting the media.
 
2007-06-15 02:01:02 PM  
He needs to be clubbed to death, and the media needs to learn when to STFU and move on to the next attention whore.

bake420: yeah man, like, i can't believe he killed all those people by infecting them with TB

Yeah, and all those people in jail for attempted murder should be released, cause like, they failed and stuff.

//Attempted suicides should be shot on sight

StillH2O: I have to lean toward douche.

There's truth there, especially since he did it all just to get in some vagina.
 
2007-06-15 02:02:46 PM  
Why is he still in the news? I don't give a fark about his condition, tell me when they know if those people on his plane are fine. He's probably loving this attention.
 
2007-06-15 02:03:57 PM  
Munchausen:

He was told to stay in Italy because he had a bad strain, and he flew to Canada to sneak into the US, therefore putting way more people at risk.

Hence, dickwad.

And if someone dies as a result, Typhoid Dickwad
 
2007-06-15 02:04:39 PM  
Ummmm... I dunno, guys. Far be it from me to step in front of an angry mob, but from what I've read it's not at all clear he understood he was putting people at risk. They told him, "yeah, you've got a nasty kind of TB but you're healthy and you'll probably be fine" and then he went on his honeymoon. Even if he didn't care about the people on the plane, I don't think he would have gotten anywhere near his new wife if he thought he was contagious.

In other words, it sounds like they told him "don't travel," and he interpreted that as "they don't want me to travel because something bad might happen to me personally, but I'm not a pussy." TFA quotes a doctor about how the medical community is too "mealy-mouthed" about informing patients of the risks.

/mob less angry now?
//ahhh! no!

2007-06-15 02:05:39 PM  
Yes...lets focus on the guy with TB. Not the doctors that didn't quarantine him....since he is so contagious and all. Or the CDC...don't look at them too closely and the way they tried to abandon him in Europe to avoid public humiliation for letting him out of the country.
 
2007-06-15 02:05:43 PM  
as long as the surgeons use a spoon in place of a scalpel.
 
2007-06-15 02:06:11 PM  
I guess I'll be the only one to go against the grain here, and I know how dangerous that is on FARK, but I'll go ahead and offer anyway:

1) His doctors told him that he was noncontagious before he got on that flight. Whether he was or not makes no difference. He was told he wasn't, by his doctors, and his actions were therefore in accordance to that information.

2) As soon as he found out there was a risk, he immediately turned himself in to be quarantined.

So... not quite the douchebag we're all making him out to be?

That's a valid question. He even has recordings of the doctor's telling him it was alright to travel. So if you need to feel indignant or even self righteous then get pissed at the doctors. They gave him the okay to travel.

2007-06-15 02:08:36 PM  
Awe come on, you're being too hard on the guy.

He had important business to attend to. So what if he could have exposed the entire planet to a civilization-ending plague of choking, spitting, gasping death on a scale of Steven King's "The Stand".

He had places to be. He thought it probably wouldn't happen and he was right!
 
2007-06-15 02:09:15 PM  
This A$$hole should stop making statements to the press - it sounds like he is looking for sympathy...which he ain't gettin' from me.

Good luck skipping out of there without paying the bill!

/nothing against Jewish people, but hey, I'm a caucasian, if people can make fun of my social stereotypes (unhip, can't dance, no rhythm, etc) a simple joke about Jewish folks' ability to tightly manage their finances shouldn't set the world upside down, should it?

He documented on tape that he was not contagious. Putting him in an asylum in italy was effectively a death sentence because they did not have the means to treat him.

Based on the original assessment of the doctors treating him that he was not contagious, he made his way back to the one place that could treat him.Not a dickwad.

If the doctors had been more aggressive in the original treatment and isolated him this whole thing would have never happened.

IMHO the doctors treating him created the whole string of events by not flat out saying "Do not travel" hence they are the dickwads.

Ward, don't you think you are being kind of hard on the beaver?

Munchausen

As I understand it he was told he was good to fly, so he flew.

If you're serious about this, I'll try to sum it up.

1. Told he was safe to fly
2. Flew to Italy
3. Told he was carrying a drug resistant strain of TB, told to report to a hospital
*asshattery starts here*
4. Does not report to hospital
5. Does not fly to US, instead flying to Germany, then Canada and driving across the border

Up until step 4, I was ok with this guy's actions. At that point, self-absorbed ass-hattery took over and he took steps that clearly shows he knows what he did was wrong (that whole Canada thing) yet still did them, exposing many planes worth of people after being told to get into quarantine.

ChadM89

2) As soon as he found out there was a risk, he immediately turned himself in to be quarantined.

Wrong, and that's why he's an asshat.
 
2007-06-15 02:11:36 PM  
You idiots defending him need to go review the other thread.

100% of you have the facts wrong, some of you 100% of your facts wrong.

DIAF all of you. Preferably to stoke the pyre for the TB douche-dick-asshat.
 
2007-06-15 02:11:54 PM  
"We are actually quite grateful to him."

Any assclown that agrees with this statement should have to drink a cup of Speaker's lungers.

floridian62

... why does everybody hate him so much?

It's more of a spectator sport than hating. I feel neither one way nor the other about dickwad or assclown or whatever we're calling him this week, but it's cathartic, in a way, just to blow a few syllables out of my ass about my preconceived, ill-informed conclusions.

Sorry.
