Story

Interview with him

So a 24-year-old UCSD student, Daniel Chong, had his friend's apartment raided by the Drug Enforcement Administration, while he was present, the morning after 4/20, where drugs including weed, shrooms, ecstasy pills, and firearms and ammo, were seized in the process. Chong was thrown into a 5 ft by 10 ft cell in the DEA office and was forgotten despite cries for help, for 5 days. He had to drink his own urine to survive and ate a bag of meth found under the blanket in his cell, in order to keep himself dying from starvation. However, he tried to kill himself by breaking the lenses of his glasses and slitting his wrists with them and swallowing them, and was found on April 25, nearly dying and incoherent, and was hospitalized.

It's disgusting that in our whole country that this would happen, and the law would let it happen. Daniel Chong was really at the wrong place at the wrong time, and he may have made a bad decision to be in this kind of atmosphere, but very few if any people deserve the treatment Daniel did. He is currently seeking a $20 million lawsuit against the DEA.

Oh, Eddy

It's disgusting that in our whole country that this would happen, and the law would let it happen. Daniel Chong was really at the wrong place at the wrong time, and he may have made a bad decision to be in this kind of atmosphere, but very few if any people deserve the treatment Daniel did.

Maybe now he'll know better than to be somewhere filled with drugs and guns.

That'd be a horrible situation, but he completely flipped shit about it. He wouldn't have starved for at least another 2 weeks, but i'll admit they could have at least given him some more water. He made it a million times worse for himself with the suicide attempts.

Irrelevant. Nothing he did justified such harsh treatment.

Yeah, let's handcuff you in a dark room for even two days with no water, and see if you "flip shit".
Why is it surprising that he tried to commit suicide? Could you even imagine what kind of pain he was in.

DEA is brutal and wastes taxpayers money.
Only thing I found funny was "he was forced to eat bag of meth to avoid starvation".
Really? Seriously, 5 days of doing NOTHING but lying may be unpleasant, but 5 days of not eating isn't dangerous.

It won't kill you, but it has very severe, painful side effects.

Okay, but eating BAG OF METH surely is more dangerous. Didn't he get poisoned from this?

Maybe his logic was that being high would significantly reduce the pain.
