Prominent Democratic Donor Charged with ‘Operating a Drug House’ Following Two Deaths and an Overdose
A well known friend and generous Hollywood donor of the Democratic Party, Ed Buck, may finally be seeing repercussions for his behavior leaving two men dead and one surviving a drug overdose. According to Fox News, Buck was “arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house after a third man reportedly suffered an overdose inside his West Hollywood home last week and survived.”
Tragically, two black men died from drug overdoses only 18 months apart inside Buck’s home, and he only “faced public scrutiny” but was not charged in the cases. In July of 2017 a 26-year-old black man, Gemmel Moore, was found dead and “naked on a mattress in the living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia.” Only 18 months later, 55-year-old Timothy Dean died of a methamphetamine overdose.
Shockingly, “prosecutors didn’t file criminal charges, citing insufficient evidence.” The details of the third and most recent incident, finally leading to Buck’s arrest include:
Buck allegedly brought the man to his home earlier this month and injected him with methamphetamine. About a week later, the man returned to Buck’s home and was injected again and suffered an overdose, according to court documents obtained by KTLA…
Buck is accused of thwarting the man’s attempt to get help. The man fled the apartment and reportedly called for help from a nearby gas station. He survived but was treated at a hospital…Prosecutors are reportedly seeking bail of $4 million. KABC-TV of Los Angeles reported that he faces up to give years and eight months in state prison if convicted.
Protestors gathered outside his home demanding his arrest because he is a “danger” to the community. Fox News reports:
