Latest from the Brave New World of California:
Protests have erupted outside the home of a wealthy Democratic donor in California, after a second man died there in 18 months.
More than 100 people gathered at the house of Edward Buck in West Hollywood on Monday night to demand the activist be arrested.
Buck – a regular donor to Democratic campaigns including Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid – was investigated for a suspected murder when Gemmel Moore, 26, was found dead of a meth overdose in July 2017.
The retired donor was again interviewed by police yesterday after another black man, in his 50s, died in his presence although the cause is not yet known.
Jasmyne Cannick, a public affairs strategist who has worked with Gemmel Moore’s family, said the DA and Sheriff’s Department ‘have blood on their hands’ for failing to properly investigate the donor.
Cannick alleged that Buck lures men to his apartment with promises of cash and injects them with crystal meth for his own sexual gratification, although the claims are as yet unproven.
‘This was preventable. We knew he hadn’t stopped, that it was only a matter of time before this happened again. And now it’s only a matter of time before it happens a third time if he’s not stopped,’ she said.
If Ed Buck were a mega rich donor to the Republican Party you would be hearing about this non-stop from the mainstream media. Fortunately for him he lives in the one party state of California and in a country where the mainstream media’s self appointed job in regard to news that cast powerful Democrats in a bad light is, according to Iowahawk: Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.
