DEA Leaves Innocent Student In Cell For Five Days Without Food Or Water

Is this the new War on Drugs method for teaching college kids not to smoke pot? Californian Daniel Chong was swept up by authorities in a raid of a friend’s house where 4/20 was being celebrated. His harrowing adventure began as he was then left in a DEA holding cell for five days, given no food or water, began hallucinating and lost his sanity, and shattered his glasses and slashed himself in a suicide attempt. He survived only by drinking his own urine and consuming some methamphetamine which, amazingly, he found in the cell:

    This wouldn’t make much sense if you thought the DEA existed for the good of the people. It makes perfect sense if you understand they are a ruthless organization dedicated to protecting the governments illegal drug trade by all means possible.

    I guess I missed the survival guide where it say when you lose all hope and sanity has waved bye bye and “what the fuck is the wall breathing” go ahead and do some meth if it’s handy. I can’t think of anything worse than tweeking out in a DEA holding cell…that poor boy

    “Room 101″ said the officer.
    The man’s face, already very pale,
    turned a color Winston would not have believed possible. It was
    definitely, unmistakably, a shade of green.
    “Do anything to me!” he
    yelled. “You’ve been starving me for weeks. Finish it off and let me
    die. Shoot me. Hang me. Sentence me to twenty-five years. Is there
    somebody else you want me to give away? Just say who it is and I’ll
    tell you anything you want. I don’t care who it is or what you do to
    them. I’ve got a wife and three children. The biggest of them isn’t
    six years old. You can take the whole lot of them and cut their throats
    in front of my eyes, and I’ll stand by and watch it. But not room
    101!”
    “Room 101″ said the officer.”

    Every year our government comes closer and closer to morphing our race into a species of obsessive bureaucratic Vogons who would watch their own mother’s get eaten by the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal unless all of the forms were signed in quadruplicate, buried, burned, resuscitated, eaten, shat out, and shredded in the proper order. Douglas Adams was definitely a visionary person.
