GUEST,josepp BS: Abolish the DEA (28) BS: Abolish the DEA 03 May 12


Shame on the mudcat liberals for missing this one. This is days old already and I've been waiting to see who was going to comment on it. Now I know: Nobody.

Hm, why is that? I wonder if it's because the victim was Asian-American. Nah, couldn't be that! That's racist!

So, yeah, student Daniel Chong was arrested by the DEA at a pot party on 4/20, locked in a cell so tiny, he couldn't stretch his arms out, fed methamphetamine instead of food or water, no sanitary facilities but was so dehydrated that he drank his own urine anyway. He broke his glasses and ate shards trying to commit suicide because he was convinced they were not going to let him out. He used one shard to try and carve "Sorry mom" into his arm.

During this time, he could hear DEA agents outside his cell but when he yelled and begged for assistance, they ignored him--later claiming they didn't know he was in there. They put him in there, had to be able to hear him screaming but they didn't know he was in there.

When they let him out, he was delerious and had to be rushed to the hospital. Doctors said another 12 hours or so and he would have died. During this period, Chong was completely isolated and had no contact with any person despite being told earlier by his DEA interrogators that he was not going to be charged and could go home.

Chong wants $20 million for his ordeal which he called "life-changing." I want the DEA abolished. It is useless and 99% of the people in it are criminals and belong in prison independent from this incident. Clearly, they locked this guy in a cell in a "let's keep this gook in there and feed him crank and see how bad he freaks out" bid for entertainment that only the DEA can provide or appreciate.

Why is it that when the republicans whine about cutting govt spending, they never mentioning abolishing the DEA--the biggest waste in govt and its most salient example of big govt run amok?

But don't worry, mudcatters, you can start your third thread on Young Earth Creationism and other bullshit liberals can't attack enough. Leave ranting about America's secret police destroying your country's freedoms to people who actually care. They didn't shut Abu Ghraib down, folks, they just moved it to the US.

Get your "Fuck you, josepp, you asshole" responses ready--you'll need 'em.
