Miami’s Memorial Day weekend cannibal crime should make every person who ever considered using a synthetic drug, like those sold at gas stations for example, reevaluate that thought very very very quickly.
Rudy Eugene, a 31-year-old black man was allegedly so messed up on a tanked up version of bath salts
(referred to by some as bad LSD or a new form of it) that he got naked and violent in such a way that police had to put him down like you would a rabid dog. And it may eventually lead to the death of his victim, if he doesn't survive the vicious attack.
Fatal shots had to be fired to save the victim's life, and one would suspect even the officers if truth be told. And the worst thing is that the Miami-Dade County brutality that occurred this Memorial Day weekend isn't the only such incident there or elsewhere that has occurred recently.
In fact, the use of bath salts like "Ivory Wave" or "Vanilla Sky," which are sold in gas stations and other convenience stores, are playing a role in violent crimes and deaths around the country.
In Muncie, Indiana police believe synthetic stimulate use may have been a factor in the death of a motorcyclist going at excessive speed before crashing. Their follow-up investigation suggests that these synthetic stimulants being sold as "bath salts" or "plant food" may have contributed to that fatality, as well as one other.
In Columbus, Ohio there have already been two police shootings due to "bath salts," with one resulting in the death of the 28-year-old man who held a knife to his girlfriend's neck before police had to shoot him in order to save her.
"These drugs, even on first use, can dramatically change a person's perception of reality," said Paul H. Coleman, who happens to be the president of a facility which treats drug and alcohol dependency in the state. The salts, according to Coleman can "make a person feel everyone is out to get them."
