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.
