The protesters in Santa Cruz have scabies, an allergic reaction to mites. Those mites of course come from dirty disgusting clothing, hair and people. And once you get scabies, impetigo is right around the corner.
From Gateway Pundit here:
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.
From the NIH here:
Scabies is found worldwide among people of all groups and ages. It is spread by direct contact with infected people, and less often by sharing clothing or bedding. Sometimes whole families are affected.
The mites that cause scabies burrow into the skin and deposit their eggs, forming a burrow that looks like a pencil mark. Eggs mature in 21 days. The itchy rash is an allergic response to the mite.
Scabies is spread by skin-to-skin contact with another person who has scabies.
And the side effect of this joyous hippie disease? Impetigo. Impetigo is caused by streptococcus (strep) or staphylococcus (staph) bacteria. And those staph infections can lead to kidney failure, so there is hope that these scabies sufferers will die off as they deserve to do.
