Charles Darwin was certainly onto something with his theory of natural selection, but the safeguards that exist in our modern society has taken a little heat out of the situation for many who may have otherwise found themselves selected.
Such is the case with this latest coronavirus pandemic, in which the only thing that is being asked of us is to stay away from each other for a while in order to starve the illness.
Instead, there are spring breakers testing positive for the deadly disease just days after appearing on national television taunting COVID-19 to come and get them in South Florida.
Now, another similarly dense individual has found himself behind bars after being caught propagating the spread of the illness in a Walmart.
A Missouri man who filmed himself licking products at a retail store was reportedly charged with making terrorist threats.
In the video which went viral on social media, Cody Pfister, 26, asks, “Who’s afraid of the coronavirus?” before proceeding to lick several items at a Walmart in Warrenton.
This young man has had a bit of a trouble past as well.
The Riverfront Times reports Pfister, who made the video on March 11 and has previously been convicted of burglary and firearm theft, was charged with making a terrorist threat, according to court documents obtained by the media outlet.
“Pfister was taken into custody this week, and Warren County prosecutors charged him today. The charge is a low-level felony,” reports The Times’ Doyle Murphy.
“Pfister was booked into the Warren County jail without bond.”
The news comes as the Department of Justice has been forced to classify the COVID-19 virus as a “biological agent”, which then allows for the purposeful spread of the illness to be considered terrorism.
