Is It Legal To Kill Zombies?

You know that if a zombie dies, you have to destroy his brain, but assuming the zombie apocolypse hasn't thrown law and order out the window, will the cops arrest you for running down the streets slaying the undead? After all, they used to be human, so is it murder to rekill them? San Diego criminal attorney Peter Liss says no, but he warns there are other legal issues you'd have to worry about like desecrating a corpse and illegal weapons charges.

dont zombies usually bite people and then they turn into zombies? wouldnt that mean that its a virus or disease of some kind, and therefore you're just murdering a sick person who needs to go to the hospital? they need medication NOT decapitation!
