I blame a homeless person for putting a box that had medical waste in it there, yes. No way a homeless person could have access to medical waste since they just keep it in doctors’ offices and never throw it out, which normally happens outside, and homeless people are never outside.
The most likely culprit – and the one that poses the most harm – is the company that sealed up the medical hazard stuff and left it in a box instead of properly discarding it. I think we will find that all the questionable stuff in the box is sealed medical waste. EIther way, what an intelligent, non-emotional discussion of the homeless problem in Arlington.
AND…if this incident started with POP (Plain old Poop) it was likely dropped off by the Gov of VA after he used his taxpayer bought colon cleaning solution!
“It's just a box of poop and syringes that were sealed. No risk to anyone. Should we ban birds and other animals from public since they poop in public? What about sick people? ALl the germs and virii they give off that can make others sick. Even non sick people can get others sick. That's a hazard to society.”
Being that animals aren’t citizens, that doesn’t make any sense. I don’t understand where you’re coming from.
A lot of employers will not let their employees come to work if they’re physically sick. But that’s irrelevant. People who catch colds or carry them are not biohazards, a la this story. There are some people too mentally ill to function and as a result they can present a serious danger to themselves and others. Apples and oranges.
“How would you have be rich you had a nickle for everything that bothers me?”
Employers aren’t the public. Can you prevent a sick person from going out in public like you can as you say, force someone to be committed? Say if someone has the flu. Can you force them off the streets? They could kill old and young people from their mere presence because they could get sick from that person.

Huh? First you blame a homeless person for the box. Then you say a homeless person would never have access to medical waste because the waste is kept in doctors offices and never thrown out. One of us is not making sense. Friday should be a fun day.
I’m going to employ the use of Occam's Razor. The most likely scenario is that this thread is an idiot.
In case of an epidemic under certain extreme conditions, it would be legal to force sick persons to stay home. Heck, it’s done with TB patients today.
It was me sorry guys I didn’t think it’d be such a big deal.
That’s like saying martial law is legal or constitutional. There’s nothing in the constitution that allows for the constitution to be suspended. People just like giving themselves powers they don’t have.
@westwilsonmafia…..You rock! :-) Thanks for coming forward and solving the homeless problem also!
“Can you prevent a sick person from going out in public like you can as you say, force someone to be committed?”
Mentally sick people who are a hazard to the general public who have no one to care for them and are incapable of caring for themselves? Yes. This was common practice in the US for years up until Reagan.
“Say if someone has the flu. Can you force them off the streets? They could kill old and young people from their mere presence because they could get sick from that person.”
It’d be impossible to enforce since people who have the flu are a lot less obvious than deranged derelicts. Who do you think is more responsible for clear and present danger in the US?
“People just like giving themselves powers they don't have.”
Yes. I’m sure that’s the 169% motive behind martial law LOL
Lincoln suspended habeus corpuse (sp?) just to gain powers he didn’t have. Yep, 99.9% historians agree.
Was it also constitutional when lincoln sent in the army stop stop the secession vote in Annapolis?
