LOS ANGELES — A San Diego college student filed a legal claim Wednesday for damages suffered when he was left handcuffed and without food or water in a Drug Enforcement Administration holding cell for five days last month.
A DEA statement said Daniel Chong, 23, was “accidentally left” in a holding cell.
“Accidentally? He almost died,” said Chong’s lawyer, Gene Iredale. “It’s inexplicable.”
The agents sent seven suspects to county jail and released another person, but Chong “was accidentally left in one of the cells,” the DEA said. The agency did not explain how he was forgotten for five days in the small, windowless cell.
“Even if they forgot him for the weekend, THERE IS NO ACCOUNT for how they could have left him there for three full business days,” Iredale said.
The acting special agent in charge of the DEA’s San Diego office said [with studiously furrowed brow and serious expression] he was “deeply troubled” by the incident and he
offered his “deepest apologies” to Chong. [Well, deepest something, anyways.]
“This event is not indicative of the high standards that I hold my employees to,” William Sherman said. [Where have I heard that one before?] “I have personally ordered an extensive review of our policies and procedures.” [But not into the actions or identities of those who pretended that they couldn't hear Chong's attempts to get their attention.]from Student forgotten in cell for 5 days suing DEA
He lost track of time in the DARK cell, his lawyer said. “At the end, he just wanted to die because he was crazy.” [emphasis added]
How objective of Fox [F-o-x/6-6-6]: note that its headline assumes that he was forgotten, implying that there's no possibility that it was deliberate, despite its similarities to "enhanced interrogation." Why was he handcuffed? He wasn't even under arrest (that's a good one: locked up AND handcuffed but not under arrest - perhaps a hint that he was there for some other reason), and he expected to be released soon.
This was an experiment in destroying a human mind, that of an optimistic engineering student. (For background on this literally diabolical agenda, go here.) Usually such extreme experiments are reserved for "interrogating terrorists." You can see how utterly the Devil's mind-shrinkers run this world - that they waltz into any situation, conduct such an experiment, disappear, and have some government agency issue apologies and shell out millions of taxpayer dollars. There will be a nuclear war before one of these creatures is held accountable in this world. I suppose they monitored him and had him "discovered" when he was on the brink of death. They just can't conduct such extreme experiments very often, because they couldn't "explain" them as "accidents."
