Another black man found dead in the home of wealthy white Democratic donor: report

Published

on

A young African American man was found dead in the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck. Buck, a white man, 60, is a prominent Democratic donor with a history of drugging young black men, reported Wehoville.

The victim’s name has not been released. However, Buck allegedly has a “fetish” for drugging young black gay men.

In July of 2017, another black man named Gemmel Moore was found dead from a methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s home.

However, Moore’s death was ruled as an “accidental overdose,” and Buck was not investigated because of “insufficient evidence.”

Before his death, Moore wrote about his experience and relationship with Buck in a journal. “I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that. Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth,” Moore wrote in December 2016.

Activists Jasmyne Cannick said that Buck was not prosecuted in 2017 because of his huge financial contributions to politicians such as Hillary Clinton, and former California governor Jerry Brown.

Cannick announced that there will be a protest in front of Buck’s house on Monday night at 7 p.m. She wants District Attorney Jackie Lacey to “prosecute [Buck] for murder after another young Black gay man was found dead in his West Hollywood apartment of an apparent overdose.”

Wehoville contacted Buck for a comment, and he did not immediately respond.

Published

President Donald Trump lamented that if the House Intelligence Committee hearings were a "prizefight" then they'd "stop it." It isn't clear what Trump is trying to say with the comment, but the internet agreed with his take, because he would have been knocked out.

Typically boxing matches aren't stopped until the end of each round or a boxer is knocked down. So, it's possible Trump means that he doesn't think they are playing fair. Indeed, after Wednesday's testimony, Trump may feel as though he's been slugged below the belt.
