Fox 5 ^ | July 24, 2014 | Rick Boone

It is an odd and very disturbing story. A hospital contractor in Northeast D.C. was attacked by rats on the job and she says they are the same rats that are eating bodies in the morgue.

Are these rats doing any different than the ‘rats eating off the body politic, also in DC?

Right out of the Dark Ages.

I’d ask if I could bring a 22 and night vision goggles. No more live rats, target practice time, a win win.

Seriously, what those folks died of could easily be spread when those rats returned to the streets and bit someone.

Rats — nasty little critters!

So you spend your life being a Democrat, voting Democrat and when you die what happens? You’re rat food. Who knew?

I was thinking the same. A Stephen King movie perhaps.

Well, no need to change voting habits, regardless of being eaten

So, are you happy that I came to pay my last respects or is that a rat in your pants?

Night vision glasses and a .22. Some solutions are simple and fun!

Just when you think it can’t get worse, here comes another hellish story. I think this officially makes us a third world country.

Congrats Obama.

DC, despite all the money floating around is showing real leadership in going third world and we need their expertise to help the rest of the country. What they couldn’t accomplish with a few hundred thousand more illegals. They could feed the corpses to the rats and the rats to the people.

These people want statehood. They can’t even keep rats out of a morgue.

Over-penetration and ricochet? I'd go with a .177 air rifle. I've taken down mice that way, always on the first shot even when moving.

Wasn’t she the contractor in charge of the morgue? Why didn’t she try to get rid of the rats?

Yep. Good question. Guess the hospital did not include hygeine in her contracted duties.

"Why didn’t she try to get rid of the rats?"

It would be a meet and confer and the SEIU would stall for decades.

I’d have that cleaned up in a few weeks at most ,, poison baits , blocking all entrances permanently with rebar and concrete ... it’s not really that hard.

Having the morgue near the trash/dumpsters isn’t unusual ,, in my experience the morgue is always out by the loading dock area for the convenience of the funeral homes... the nutritional services department is a bigtime user of the loading docks and there is always food for rats at the dumpsters.. I’d place poison baits not just in the immediate area but out as much as a block away if possible.

Thanks. I am forced to use words I can spell, oftentimes my spelling is off so much that spellcheck can’t figure out what I mean. Hellish to be me sometimes.

Only in a democrat run city, can you have a 40 year rat problem where they are eating the corpses in the morgue...

Seriously, how hard would it be to correct this problem...?

I almost used the phrase “peach in our time.” I succeeded in talking about World Peach.

I'm reminded of a Conan movie where Grace Jones plays a fierce warrior woman, afraid of no man. However, she goes to pieces in the presence of a rodent. I think I see the problem here.

They don’t even have enough people to be a state... they are more like a county without a state...

Good point. And fun for the whole family since an air rifle is a lot safer for the little ones.

Although it might take a couple of shots because some rats can be BIG!.
