Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a room measuring 10 meters square, with one wall of the room being replaced by a rolling door typically utilized in warehouses. When not currently being tested, SCP-XXXX is to be covered by a canvas tarp at least 3 mm thick. No fewer than three (3) armed security personnel are to patrol the containment facility, and no less than four (4) armed security personnel are to guard the entrances to SCP-XXXX at all times. All persons interacting with SCP-XXXX are to be equipped with SCRAMBLE technology unless otherwise authorized by Level 3 personnel for testing purposes.

Any attempts by unauthorized personnel to enter the containment area should be met with the appropriate force for the situation (NOTE: "appropriate force" is to be determined by the security personnel involved).

Should an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 successfully enter the cab of SCP-XXXX, the vehicle is to be stopped via bollards of twelve (12) centimeters diameter and two (2) meters in height. The bollards should be located one (1) meter from the rolling door, capable of being raised and lowered so SCP-XXXX may be removed for testing purposes. Any damage done to SCP-XXXX is permanent, meaning security personnel are to exercise caution when using live ammunition to prevent containment breaches, instead relying on the bollards.

Any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be shot on sight. Any instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be brought to the nearest Foundation Site and stored for further testing and debriefing before being held in a standard humanoid containment cell until effects of SCP-XXXX wear off. They should then be released.

Local law enforcement are able to contain outbreaks of SCP-XXXX-2, though MTF Delta-2 ("U Call, We Haul") are on standby during such events to assist if necessary.

Description:
SCP-XXXX is a standard 15-foot moving truck, license plate -Missouri ███ - ███, previously owned by the U-Haul company before coming into Foundation custody on ██/██/19██. In all regards, the vehicle is non-anomalous, with the exception of the super-graphics featured on the truck sides. Instead of the standard super-graphics, memetic symbols shift across the length of the vehicle.

No fewer than ████ individuals were afflicted by SCP-XXXX before coming into Foundation custody near ███████, Wyoming.

When an individual comes under the effects of SCP-XXXX they are classified as SCP-XXXX-1; the individual will then proceed to climb into the cab of the vehicle and attempt to drive SCP-XXXX into the nearest crowded public center, thereby afflicting more individuals, who are in turn classified as SCP-XXXX-2. Once this has been accomplished, SCP-XXXX-1 will drive to the next most populated public center, thereby repeating the process. Distance between public centers does not seem to effect SCP-XXXX-1's decision making process, and the time to travel varies greatly, often much longer or shorter than regular travel. Researchers have been unable to follow SCP-XXXX with any degree of success beyond three kilometers of the initial outbreak zone, evading any type of surveillance beyond that three (3) kilometer radius, leading researchers to believe SCP-XXXX travels via pocket-dimension.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 will proceed to act in an aggravated manner, growing steadily more aggressive as time progresses. There does appear to be a point at which the memetic influences fade if SCP-XXXX is no longer withing twenty (20) kilometers. Interviews with numerous instances of SCP-XXXX-2 has revealed there to be no clear similarities to the reason of anger. Memetic images on SCP-XXXX's sides seem to be individually chosen by SCP-XXXX in order to secure the desired effect, though researchers have been unable to determine whether or not SCP-XXXX is sentient. Refer to interview logs for further details.

The mobility of SCP-XXXX to spread the memetic influences means any containment breach almost always results in a riot or similar aggressive outbreak. Instances of SCP-XXXX-2, regardless of reasoning for aggression, will join together, causing widespread damage in uncontrolled outbreaks. The riots in ████████, Missouri and ███ ███████, California have been attributed to SCP-XXXX, as well as █ full site containment breaches..

SCP-XXXX-2-735: Mary ██████, you capitalist pig! I'm doing this to take down the West and all of its free-market bullshit!
Dr. Richards: Ms. ██████, this was a riot about a police involved shooting, how exactly does capitalism factor into this? For the record please, we are only trying to help.

<End Log>
Closing Statement: Despite obvious flaws in logic and failure to grasp scope of task at hand, SCP-XXXX-2-735 failed to cede any aggressive tendencies. Restrained and released after thirty-seven (37) hours in accordance with Special Containment Procedures.

Addendum: SCP-XXXX appears to inhibit the brain from accessing the left hemisphere of the cerebral cortex, preventing any negotiations from transpiring. Additional interview logs are available at request.
