Clinton Mega-Donor Ed Buck, Who Has Had Two People Die of Drug Overdose In His House, Is Finally Arrested After Third Man is Nearly Killed by Drugs

My suspicion is that he has a very weird Gay Angel of Death compulsion.

He seems to get off on injecting people with drugs and watching them die.

This last guy reportedly tried to escape from Buck's house to get help, but Buck stopped him.

In 2017, a young African American man, Gemmel Moore, 26, was found dead inside the home of Democratic donor Ed Buck under suspicious circumstances.

There were demands for an investigation and protests. But in the end, authorities said there was not enough evidence to charge Buck with a crime.

Then in January 2018, a second man, Timothy Dean, 55, was found dead in Buck’s West Hollywood apartment. There were more protests and demands for action, but Buck remained free and denied any wrongdoing in either case through his attorney.


Now, prosecutors say a third man tried to escape from Buck's home in September after being drugged. They claim Buck prevented the man from getting help.

This time, authorities took action.

Buck was arrested and charged this week with operating a drug house, with prosecutors calling him a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness.

The wealthy gay-rights activist is accused of injecting a 37-year-old man, who overdosed but survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11. Buck's attorney could not immediately be reached for comment, but activists who have long demanded action say they are relieved by the arrest.

...

The latest man found in Buck's home, identified in court papers as Joe Doe, went to the apartment on Sept. 4, where Buck "personally and deliberately" administered a large dose of methamphetamine, prosecutors said. Concerned he was overdosing, the man left Buck's apartment to get medical help.

He returned to Buck's apartment a week later, on Sept. 11, when Buck again injected him with "two dangerously large" doses of methamphetamine, prosecutors said.

But this time, prosecutors say, Buck thwarted the man's attempts to leave. The man eventually fled the apartment and called 911 from a gas station. He was taken to a hospital for treatment. Sheriff's investigators found hundreds of photographs in Buck's home of men in compromising positions.

...

Buck is accused of luring his victims into his home and then baiting them with drugs, money and shelter.

"From his home, in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes," prosecutors wrote in court papers. "These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims. ... Not deterred by the senseless deaths of Moore and Dean, the defendant nearly killed a third victim last week."

Was Buck's status as a gay activist and Democrat donor (investing heavily in local politicians) and Friend of Hillary's what protected him for so long? No one knows, but the answer is "Clearly Yes."

While Buck once identified himself as a conservative Republican, according to the Los Angeles Times, he became a national figure when he spearheaded the effort to impeach Arizona's Republican Gov. Evan Mecham in the 1980s. He later made large donations to Democrats, including more than $500,000 since 2007, according to court documents filed by Moore's mother in a wrongful death suit pertaining to her son.


At the federal level, those include contributions to prominent Washington lawmakers as well as 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. At the local level, Buck has donated more than $51,000 to Los Angeles city and county officials, candidates, and affiliated parties dating to 2008.

In 2012, Buck contributed $100 to the campaign for Jackie Lacey for Los Angeles County District Attorney, and four years later, gave $1,400 to Eric Garcetti for Mayor of Los Angeles. Both Lacey and Garcetti still hold their titles.

The highest contribution was $13,000, according to the court papers, to former West Hollywood Mayor John Duran when he ran for county supervisor in 2014.
