SOME PEOPLE ARE GRIEVING BECAUSE A NURSE’S DOG WHO POTENTIALLY CONTRACTED EBOLA WAS H U M A N E L Y PUT DOWN.
THEY RIOTED OVER THIS.
THEY SIGNED A 390, 000 PETITION TO SAVE THAT DOG.
PEOPLE ARE BEING EXECUTED IN THE STREET FOR BEING BROWN AND YOU WANT TO RIOT OVER A DOG.
For your information
First: There is no evidence of dogs getting ebola from humans, so that thing of the “DOG WHO POTENTIALLY CONTRACTED EBOLA” is just bullshit.
Second: He was put down without any analysis, without knowing if he was sick or even dangerous.
Third: When dogs get ebola (only from other animals, not from humans) they develop inmunity really quick and heal. So, in the unlikely event that the dog was sick, it would be the first time a dog was sick with ebola in the first world. This could have been the first chance to study why ebola works so different on dogs, and maybe (call me whiney) get closer to getting a cure for the fucking whole humanity. And if we had that chance, we throw it away.
Fourth: The dog was taken in a normal van, by people without the right security clothing, who got in contact with him ignoring the safety protocol So again, in the unlikely event that the dog was sick and contagious, the goverment put in danger a whole neighborhood, and the people who put down the dog, the ones who taked away the corpse, the ones who manipulated it’s corpse… If it was sick, it could been safer to let him alone in the house, isolated from any contact.
Fifth: I feel really sorry for what’s happening in your country, it is awful that racism is still alive like that nowadays, but comparing one thing to another is stupid. It is like when people complain about rape and some bigots say, hey! don’t complain, it is worst in the middle east! Do we have to allow rape here because it is worst in the middle east? I’ll guess you can see my point.
Sixth: Do you know a fucking thing about the context, you moron? Do you know something about how hard is the echonomical breakdown here in Spain? Our goverments have been cutting down the budget for public healthcare for years, so people here are dying of things as flu or hepatitis because they are denied to get the treatment; specially if they are poor or immigrants; our best doctors and healthcare professionals are being payed like shit, so they emmigrate to other countries; hospitals are being closed; health research centers are being closed. And in that conditions, without having a fucking center with biosafety level 4 that ebola requires (we had one, but guess what, it was dismantled :D); our dear goverment decides to bring back people with ebola. They ignore the safety protocol, the patients are being transferred and manipulated by staff without training in ebola (there’s no budget for such a thing in Spain!) and with the wrong safety suits (level 2 instead of level 4), and guess what happened? Yeah, a nurse assistant got infected. She demanded the test several times, and she was denied, and when she finally was diagnosed… OH MY GOD WE HAVE TO RUSH AND KILL HER DOG WHO IS NOT SICK AT ALL ALTHOUGH IT DOES NOT FOLLOW THE PROTOCOL.
We riot because our public healthcare system (and the whole country) is falling to pieces, we riot because people are dying of things that can be cured, we riot because they have performed this show of killing a potentially healthy dog (and spending public money on it), just to make it look like they do their job, when the reality is that they are slowly killing a fucking country.
