So. A lot of people. That's a lot of money. To a lot of people are putting it towards charities and form of synthetic representation. These CCC that this is the second death. Not the first second. So too little. This was overwhelming. I do not have any more data to talk. I said everything I can say I the fact that guys this is all out there all public version when you see one own fucking call out true crime enthusiasts because let's be real. I was thinking about there is there's a fixation in the troop the death of brutalized white women. Let's be fucking real. I was thinking about this the whole time, I was taking notes and and. You need to seriously if you're a true crime fan investigate why dead white women, quote, unquote, get it up for you. But dead gay black men or just dead. Anyone who is in a white woman? Get like dozen pique your interest. Make you question. Make you look for answers like. When I listened to a logic on podcasts and all of them at one point make the assertion. Well, we're white people. So like, we covered dead white people because we don't understand the stories of non white people. Listen, that's a crock shish Chris Crocker Shenzhou investigate the fact that journalists and crime reporters covering these deaths accurately factually and with the same vigor, they give to missing and dead. White women not saying that missing and dead women don't deserve Justice. But there is a whole spectrum of individuals in this country that are brutalized on a daily and systemic basis that do not get the same media, focus. They just don't like you can come back, and you can say whatever you want. But it's the fucking fact of the matter by ratio these stories probably amount to lake point five percent of the overall crime reporting in this country. What it is. You see these like white suburban moms are like true crime is my shit like I'm just obsessed podcasts and the us with people who look like us that are dead. And you're not obsessed with this is stem. Ick violent against people in. They like a sexy story. Someone attractive somebody wealthy somebody in an interesting city and having interesting storyline getting some type of interesting murder that is artistic in there is, but when systematic violence or crime happens on any community, that's not your own suddenly, it's too much earn appropriate or gross or triggering..

"So knowing this reports fast forward to what happened on January tenth this year. I'm getting this from Bob as well fixed stays ago. Like this is recent. Yes. So a second gay black man by the name of Timothy dean, fifty five was found dead in the home of Ed. Buck responders reportedly arrived at bucks home to find the unresponsive by an apparent overdose. Police are currently reluctant to state with Novartis was caused Beth and phetamine I've read some people say it was meth. Some people said that, you know, the people say LAPD is not releasing. But it is goodness. Not even a week old. So we're not confirmed. Yeah. Either way overdose. Quote, mmediately bucks lawyers issued a statement removing him of all couple Bill de and once again, blaming the victim for his death, quote from what I know it was this is from the lair from what I know it was an old friend who died of an excellent overdose. And unfortunately, we believe that substance was ingested at some place other than the apartment said Seymour, answered bucks attorneys bucks. Attorney the person came over intoxicated. So immediately, obviously, the reason why we're doing about this in my report on this because lots of activists community members immediately reprocessing front of bucks home the day or the day after the incident during the Raleigh several systems spoke out, including jasmine snick, we mentioned earlier who's been personally reporting the story since it's happened. She apparently challenged several city member council members who should up to the rally about how disengaged harmful they have been during the first time this happened and how their support has now questionable at best. It's just like. We already know. This is like the fact that this is happening again a year and a half afterwards. And there's people who are involved from the beginning to now a year and half later, and I I didn't hear about that. So now, I'm sure if I was I haven't heard that that's because shared in some sex worker communities that I know about will. There you go. They shared this. It's not from that just pushed into fights your phone to because you know, for sure the California's sex working industry, like it's very close knit like a lot of people look out for each other. I will say that sex workers released show up for sex workers. And I heard about this the first time, and that's why weren't under. That's I want people understand is like again, we have to say allegations legally. But this has happened twice one. How many wealthy democratic donors? Do you know who have had gay black sex workers die in their apartment publicly? And then how many do you know that it has happened twice? Is to publicly the fact that this is a repeat of something that is already shocking as it is should tell you everything you need to know about this story that we cannot legally come down extremely hard on like, I can only say what I am seeing and reading. But the fact of the fucking matter is this should tell you everything you need to know. More should not have to be an allegation slapped on this. But we need to when. Yes up when I first started reading this. I was thinking like when we talked about the noodles and beef, you know, the don't Hafer type in story. I there was like that was so much entrenched in like screen shots messages tumbler things Facebook groups, like what have you all these light? But again that was her Sherry sources multiple people die. Yes. Yes. To any act that either multiple died gave credibility in my mind because how many people do you hear about die of situations? Like that. That's what I'm saying is it's like with this..

"So I met up with him again when you're in that situation do anything able to survive just like you were saying jumbo four people in sex work, especially if you're addicted to drugs, and people were fighting this for you and people are forcing into the situation because of your financial social standing, you're most likely to do it, and you're not necessarily been happy about it. But it's just something you do. So I wanna keep that in mind with the situation. A twenty eight year old said that buck offered him a drink Gatorade. When he drink again and said he began to feel as if you've been drugged and suspect the drink. Contained drugs such as H B. We did the usual change into his clothes drink most the gear in a few minutes. I felt woozy. I didn't feel my normal self. I can barely keep my eyes open. This is I mean, I don't want to go into too much further. I mean, it's it's honestly just almost too much. She would pretty much talk about what the effects of being was liked today's as other the darkness that is in. So the darkness that is in the pairing of Tommy hilfiger tidy Whitey as a muscle t shirt in long Johns, and there were photos of this. You know, what I'll say this. I'm not a psycho sexual therapist. But we all know what Tommy hilfiger underwear packages. Look like, we know what that section of the JC Penney's TJ Maxx may Kohl's wherever you are. You know is a lot of like hunky shirtless men in Tommy hilfiger underwear we know that like the room we know that it's like an American kind of like ideal on that underwear packaging. Yeah. And I just want to say that that is so dark with the white muscle t shirt in the long Johns. Like, I just I can't I know. I know I see like I can't get that image out of my monitors like what kind of darkness and trauma and evil led to that pairing of like fantasy. I don't know. No, I might be reading too much into it. But like, it's it's something I'm not a quip to even. A man. No. When we can it's literally way too much to understand. I can we're only telling you what what we're reading. And what we're finding out. We cannot explain to you. What's actually going on in this man's head? Because this is something else. So. And said afterwards that he could barely keep as open. He felt drowsy and limp using on the middle of the floor. Again, does not believe that buck raped or sexually assaulted him while he's incapacitated. But buck said you're not high enough for me, I want you to another point. I was so blurred in a situation. He actually pointed me, and when he injected with crystal meth, my body heated up like fire, I saw preparing the drugs the table. He said you've got to watch. I couldn't really stand up. I really thought I was the next person that was going to be ad bucks. House against that Buckton Saney thing he was lying on the floor unable to move and just moved around watching him as we talked about earlier before this report even came out more than about six months, actually know a year and a half ago before this report came out because this came out just about a week ago in two thousand seventeen about a month after Moore's death. We talked about demar love, and those stories you just mentioned where they said that this man likes to find people to inject with drugs. This is what people reporting and watch what happens to them. So this is a part of his process as people are warning fuck in nods. What literally is like shaking me. Mike Boorda the story about him wandering around the apartment while he laid on the mattress lake drugged. And he knows that this man is in his house, and he says that he could feel the spirit of death enter him because he really thought he was going to die and he knew about Moore's death. He knew about it. So he Lilley said I'm going to be another body. It's like chill. So I'm gonna miss a little more because it's honestly just too much. But apparently in the end there was this fight between them, and he called his moms and his affairs going to die and in the end bucket. Paying him a couple hundred bucks to fight back to Minnesota. And they never spoke again..

"He rented the back of the apartment, and I used his phone to get an Uber and got the hell out of there. I call nine one one in three different police jurisdictions from the Uber that day I called West Hollywood Hawthorne and Inglewood. So at this point there are two people the one who passed away in his home more and soon him Dhamar love who both talk about reporting him to the police multiple times. I have not seen another verification that those reports have been. Taken in by the police. I do believe their stories by have not been able just you know, to be factually her that I have not been able to confirm those reports from it on him. So from the West Hollywood times, they also talk about friend and was hung councilmember. Steve Martin quote when former West Hollywood councilmember Steve Martin along ran again along with a slate of candidates than -cluded Ed Buchan chosen seven the two were friends and allies, according to Martin by telling eleven at buck had become openly hostile in stable both in public demeanor and his personal interactions with Martin and the others say that and others when they disagreed with buck, quote, it was clearly obvious after deals and seven that this guy had a serious personality disorder Martin told the West Hollywood times noting that after an effort that buck helped lead to saving a local historic resource. Didn't go exactly as planned the activists became quote erratic and unpredictable asked if he and his colleagues suspected drug use as a potential cause of bucks allegedly hostile behavior. The formal councilman was definitive in reply, quote, everyone knew it Martin said it's. Will shift. They say they did it was like a family you now everyone the family knew it there were people who embraced it. And there were frankly members of city council that they knew Ed had problems. They knew Edwards a controversial member of the community. And from the article, according to a PBS frontline report, which cites a prominent UCLA study Matthews can lead to brain damage as well as conic behavior paranoia, insomnia, anxiety, extreme aggression delusion who solutions and even death, according to St. Martin, Ed bucks. Neighbors have for years allegedly experience similar bullying, quote, a no one wants to do anything about it. Because they all know Ed is politically well connected. Martin said quote, buck who's a sa- friends acquaintances and quote unquote, picture photo picture with photo opportunities include some health, most powerful and popular Democrats such as West Hollywood city councilman John Duran congressman Ted lieu governor Jerry Brown and even former secretary of state Hillary Clinton scared some people during the for band debate into eleven Ed bucks. Former therapists though. James e Darnet apparently. So apparently went except into the dearth of legal documents regarding ad bucks. Alleged threats of violence as a copy of petition for a restraining order filed by a marriage and family therapist who but came to see Anton to quote from design it he talked narcolepsy and seemed to want in Fettah means the therapists James e testifies the court documents, quote when I told him, I am not a medical doctor and could not prescribe medications, but could talk to him as feelings interpersonal relationships. The defendant leaned Ford aggressively began shouting and behaved irrationally to join it says in two complaint further state, the Ed but continued for days to harass him by posting strange flyers to faming and throw building. And by phoning him allegedly at one point threatening to make therapist feel his pain. So there's those stories that were short, but pretty much supported that. There's obviously drug use. There is a desperation book side too. To take drugs by medical professionals or somebody was not medical. But he thought could get them that and of course, tomorrow story and other sex worker who talks about being pricked, which is someone who pretty much just inject you with something without your knowledge. And that he personally looks for and tries to seek young black men around Los Angeles that he can bring to his home for these types of interactions..

That's my start to do my research on him to mar loves believes that buck was an unaccustomed to his level of concern for his own safety as a potentially vulnerable sex worker, another man's home environment. Buck he says did not like his unwillingness to turn off his smartphone, which he used to ensure his girlfriend newer.

Overnight protest erupted advocates from the gay and black community accusing buck of using political influence to allude harassed that is exceedingly rare to have an eighteen month time span to individuals to death investigations from the same apartment.

This week had been a friend for twenty five years and arrived at the home under the influence. But tonight, the sheriff's department says the case is under investigation as detectives also revisit the death from twenty seventeen. Right. So I wanna get into right now.

Times who first broke the story of Moore's death that she didn't believe it was as cut and dry as Los Angeles County coroner's offices making it she learned that her son had been doing escort work, and then their son's friend was also engaged in some artillery, and they had a client in common. So in her initial corresponds to the West Hollywood times, Nixon said I called one of my sons, friends and was like who the hell is Edward buck. My son's friend said oh my God. That's that white guy that wealthy white politician guy. He was like oh my God when he calmed down. He told me that Edberg was one of my sons and son's clients and book was one of his clients as well, but could have my son to go out to Santa Monica boulevard and looking for young black guys. So they can inject them with drugs. See the reaction and how they would react and take pictures of them. So there's a journal enter that you can find its on vibes are mentioned earlier that came out in January fourteen twenty eighteen this has been circling before this article, but this is the has the best lie had like the most resources necessary to me, and a has all the journal entries on that three pages. All read them quickly to you. So this is released again, this is released before other stories, I will tell you the people have been with buck. So this is released before those stories came out he wrote in his journal. I pray that I can just lit just get my life together and make sense I helped so many people but can't seem to help myself. I honestly didn't know what to do become a digital drugs in the worst one at that. Ed buck is the one to thank he gave me my first injection of crystal meth, it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted to the pain and fetish fetish slash fantasy. But slowly, my brain my mind and action change, I am not the same person. I was born to be fellas if I sold my soul to the devil. I want to. To be back in the hands of God. I want to be healed from drugs poverty and troubles at want independence. I want my own. There's so much madness going on in my life. It's got to be a legal and wrong. The way I was raised to be you would never expect any of this. I just hope the end result is in deaths.

I do I do want to die. I feel like I've done way too much that this lifetime allows if I didn't hurt so bad. I kill myself. But I'll let Ed buck. Do it for me. Now, December third twenty sixteen. I miss my grandmom. Now, it's a lot. It's a lot. I have not seen anyone silly verify that this is like proof that he wrote it and that this is proof that at killed him. And all these things I do wanna stay that. This is not like defend approve everything you do have to understand that there's possibilities. This could be, you know, fabricated by the mom, I I'm just always devil's advocate. I'm not saying something, I believe in it all was it was released before Timothy dean and other people that I'm going to bring up in a bit that I've talked about the same situat-, you know, happening. I'll say where I find extreme credibility in this journal. Is there wasn't yet? A narrative that this man was preying on Ye gay black not in the public eye. There was not a public outcry. There was on a public narrative being told in..

"And this is where I wanna really stress a point on this is we need to seriously. Consider the power dynamics that it is a consistent theme of almost every sex worker that at one point or not in their lives as sex workers. They have gone to a job where a wealthy white man has encouraged them to take dangerous addictive substances inject or smoke or ingest or whatever it is. That is a consistent theme and. It will also stay that the ones I hear the most. This is a consistent story for our the non white sex workers in my life. I just think that it is a systemic problem. It is not an Ed buck problem. I think this is something where anywhere you go. There are wealthy white men who abuse their positions of wealth and power to find marginalized people who are without voices in the greater community in the greater society and encourage them to participate in extremely dangerous activities because one there is an inherent power imbalance when it comes to survival sex work and a lot of times these clients if that's what we're going to call them know that they know the power imbalance. They know that a lot of the times they can push these people in my life as far as they can possibly go because they know you need this money. So I can ask you to do more and more and a lot of the times because you are a sex worker. You don't have a support system. You don't have legal protections the way that a normal citizen does and on top of it. You especially if you are a non white, and or transects worker your risk of violence and police violence in his exponentially. We're going to chill. I you're going to be abused. I and no one's gonna take fence for being taken advantage of by someone your risk goes up tenfold in that situation hundredfold million fold because there is no legal body. That is going to jump to your defense when you say that there is a wealthy white predator preying on young gay black men who are getting addicted to drugs because of them, and then overdosing there's just not a legal body that is going to affect you in that notion. But if this was I will say young white women as we've seen we would have fifteen lifetime series. There'd be thirty seven podcasts. They would be dateline investigation as sixty minutes investigation. It would be on the top of every Fox News program. This would be the national story, but because they are gays blacks. Ex-workers no one is paying attention to this. And then exactly what we see happening. And if the society is not paying attention, imagine, what must be like in your everyday life. No, it's it's obsolete. Terrible. So I love to say so the day after more passed away July twentieth. Twenty eighteen sorry. Twenty seventeen jasmine cynic posted on her Twitter about if another young black gay, men overdoses or worst is and democratic donor. Ed bucks apartment is going to be the father sheriff department. Elliott's attorney for not stopping him when the opportunity hashtag Joe more. Hazardous Justice forage mil this thread that you can find quite easily contains videos links tons of info about the incident. Talking about the spins of at buck. So jasmine sneak in just mystique dot com. Schist her website premature to Kim towards the story since it's happened. She's political strategist and commentator in the LA community. She contacted Moore's family after his death. To talk about this journal that I will talk about more about later to publish. And this is again all before Timothy dean just January passed away says all round time of year. So about a month after more passed away LaTasha, Nixon his mother said quote, and this I'm getting this from her website said quote about a year ago about a year and a half ago Djamil had called me on the phone, and he was crying, she explained. And he said, quote this man tied me up. And he said he shot me up with something. And he said, I don't know what he shot me up with. He was scared. I was like what happened, and he was just crying crying. I was like who is guy and he said at buck. He has lots of ties very powerful in the west and West Hollywood he was like I'm scared.

He also gauged in sex work part time, and yeah, let's just get into this timeline story because it it all comes together.

This is from vibe they're article that came out January fourteenth Twenty-eight teen the name of the articles at book in the black queer leads that don't matter a great a summary of the events so on July twenty seven two thousand seventeen police were called to the former home of hall to the home of buck in West Hollywood, California, where the body of twenty six year old Gilmore was found unresponsive the A corners office initially ruled compels death in overdose of crystal methamphetamine.

"To be the take on an anything regarding to commit knowledge. Thanks for making the transition from nausea apologised to critic that much more seamless. She's really a whole dumpster fire in a wig. So she says lastly, I've been itching for deep dive slash investigative report us to I don't know if you've heard about it, you probably such definitely have. But this Ed buck thing is sending chills up my spine article popped up on my notifications a couple of days ago, and I've been sent into an emotional tailspin ever since as a black woman. I found the story deeply troubling. Where are the people who care where the people besides the deceased loved ones who are willing to come at the status to full force. I couldn't think of a better crew to look into the matter and give their take I didn't wanna Lincoln article or anything at figured there'd be that'd be presumptuous and assuming given hurt about it or thinking, you just take that word of a stranger and center entire episode around offense suggestion won't we have. Also, I think he deserve his own personal take and research what I perceived to be credible information and shouldn't appear on your own explosion on the matter for any correspondence, you feel comfortable pursuing and the Pierce twins. Love you. Sorry fiddling theme out not lengthy at all, by the way. Thank you so much. So I love this letter. I mean Joan did hear about at buck. So really quick synopsis of what kind of happened distort? The story technically starts around July twenty seventeen where a black gay escort was found dead in Ed bucks apartment. Ed. Buck is a American businessmen activists political fundraiser, he's wealthy. He supports Democrats there by a democrat. He began his career as a model and actor, but then made a bunch of money and a resort area. I guess and then moved to California and quote, unquote, retired in Hollywood, but he just now as the last twenty years since he's lived there. He's pretty much just been someone who uses his money to donate to other Democrats, including Hillary Clinton. And if you others will mention later so in two thousand seventeen in July twenty seventeen there was a gay blackmail escort that dinas home of methamphetamine overdose. His name is Gilmore there was another. There was stories along the way up to what happened in in January of this year that will get to later, but in January just a few weeks ago around the tenth. I believe Timothy dean another gay black male escort sex worker was found dead in his home as well. And this is she's that increase. Yes. And as you see the headlines it saying another one what's going on the suspicious. What have we know? So it definitely Peter interest. We're not Nestle true crime podcast. But we've done it before we've talked about things like this before I think anything relating to the BT spaces anything with communities that are not represented. I think is very much what we like to give platform to on the show. I mean, I think we're moving into a podcast. That's not just about pop culture. But about the pop culture of media being they think menia now is pop culture. It is the four pop culture was specifically the tabloid celebrity space, but it's moving into obviously now music is part of pop culture. And I think the media because journalism has had a an is going to be a hot take a celebrity moment. I mean, we our star riders. We have our star publications. We have a culture of paying attention to the news, it has entered into a almost pop culture like climbs or variants. And so I think that this is perfectly in our wheelhouse. The way the media misrepresents and often completely. Ignores stories that are affecting marginalized communities in which shocked me about this. And I'll quickly jump in with this. Because it's really my first impression of the story Lawson is that I recently finished for my second time around because I was not really paying attention. The first the assassination of Johnny Brazil, g which was that one point about the archetype of gay men in the eighties and nineties, but largely was about the way the political space in the nineties and the culture at large because of the aids crisis and the general sentiments towards gay men largely ignored the victims of this serial killer, and definitely did not focus in on the fact that this was a serial killer on a rampage across the country and could have easily been stopped at multiple points in the murders..
"ed buck" Discussed on KCRW
"Earlier this week. A black man was found dead inside the home of democratic activists in donor. Ed buck the man has not yet been publicly identified, but it's not the first death in bucks, Los Angeles, home back in July two thousand seventeen twenty six year old Jamal more was found dead there of an apparent methamphetamine overdose. It is suspicious that this has happened twice now. So we're going to conduct a thorough investigation to determine if it is criminal in nature. That's L A county sheriff's Lieutenant Derek Alfred talking to a local television station outside of bucks residents. No charges have been filed yet but calls for bucks arrests are growing louder. Neil Braverman is the digital editorial director of the advocate, and he's been following this story. Neil, welcome to the takeaway. Thanks for having me. So before we get into the specifics of the victims here, can you tell us and give us a snapshot of who Ed buck is and what role he plays in his political in the political sphere? He's a democratic activist. He's a donor is given to people like new airs on a Senator Kirsten cinema Hillary Clinton. He ran for West Hollywood city council, which was telling what is a satellite cities has its own government. And that he ran for unsuccessfully. Ran for city council about eleven years ago, he has pushed bands and for for sales in West Hollywood. He's. Been sort of a person on the periphery of the political scene in Los Angeles and wasn't super well known outside of West Hollywood circles before the young man's death in two thousand seventeen but people knew him people in West Hollywood knew who he was and definitely became infamous after memoirs death. Now, of course, he's also donated a significant amount to a different democratic efforts and has also been somewhat of a champion for LGBTQ policies. No, certainly, I mean, he he's given a I think it was about one hundred sixteen thousand dollars to democratic candidates. You know, he's been a an activist for LGBT rights even going back to when he lived in Arizona. There wasn't anything really suspicious about him necessarily until the summer of two thousand seventeen but lots of lots of questions raised after Jamal more staff, and it was really shocking to people that he never. Was prosecuted not only was Jamal more flown in from Texas and found naked and dead in his home, but many men came forward after and said that Ed buck had this fetish for injecting them with drugs and Jemma Moore's diary was found later and horrifying series of descriptions were included as far as at buck ingest injected me drugs, he he likes to watch me get high and got me hooked on meth. And so it was shocking when nothing really came that. Well, let's talk about what we know about this latest death. What can you tell us about this? So far, they haven't released the age of the man, we know he's African American Ed bucks attorney said that he's a longtime friend of his the attorney has said at buck is not responsible for his death. He came to his apartment in West Hollywood intoxicated under the influence of something and just interim away. And Ed bucks attorney has gone so far as to say, you know, he had nothing to add buck had nothing to do with the death of this man, and actually kind of castigated the man and said, you know, he's not responsible for the bad choices that this man made and more made. So they're not only defending the lawyers not only defending at buck. They're really kind of slandering these men who have died, and I'm wondering if you can tell us you've been covering this story since the two thousand seventeen I'm wondering if you can tell us Neal are there any connections between the two the two cases that you've seen so far. Well, they're both black men. You know, the book died of drug overdoses, you know, from what we've heard is hard to confirm it. But at buck has this fetish, we don't know again, it hasn't been proven. But a lot of people have come forward and said he has this fetish for watching men get high in in front of him. And you know, when Moore was was found there was all kinds of drug paraphernalia around him. We don't know what the scene was with this new man who who died, but I'm sure that will come out. It's it's it's very disturbing. And it's it's very sad that this has happened. And that where is at Bucknell is he's still he's not in jail. He hasn't been arrested. And apparently, according to activists, he was flying men to his home doing God knows what after Moore's death local activists have said that they have evidence that this is continued. So the Neil what is the bar for proving that buck is responsible for. Either of these deaths. I'm thinking, you know, if are there laws that state that buck would be responsible for this. If if the deaths happened in his home, if he provided the drugs, like, what do we know about where what we need to prove here? Well, you know to the credit of the DA it is hard to to prove that he was responsible. But as I said before there were drugs paraphernalia, powders pipes bags found in his home. I find it very hard to believe that Jamal more was was doing drugs in his home. And at buck had no idea Jamal more flew to Los Angeles the day of his death. He didn't have a lot of money. So we're supposed to believe that he either fluid drugs on a plane or came to Los Angeles found a drug dealer bought drugs, and and did them all in all in one day. And then died just common sense would would seem to suggest that at buck had some sort of role and. Getting the drugs. I don't know. Obviously it hasn't been proven. But you know, these are questions that I imagine the DA has to ask herself. But the yes, it's it's it's hard to prove it is the community responding to this death. I mean, are they feeling like law enforcement is doing enough of a job right now? I worry about the people who have come forward that they were sex workers. Or are they not believed as easily as people like Ed buck who have money and influence and friends. I think that's the concern is that why weren't these people taking seriously? We were sounding the alarm and nothing came in here. We are. Neil Braverman is the digital editorial director of the advocate. Neil. Thank you so much. Thank you..
"ed buck" Discussed on Fame is a Bitch
"There is evidence from Djamil Moore's journal and from other men who say that buck promises money to people and then injects them was crystal meth for his own gratification. K you're dying. He's jerking off. He gets off on this. He gets high while black is die. Sounds like a T shirt, you'd think after Moore's family made the dead sons journal public things would change or at least nobody would die there or God. Forbid, some cops might not on the fucking door and talk the buck. In. No and those pages that Moore left behind. He says that book introduced him to narcotics in one excerpt from December twenty sixteen he wrote, I honestly don't know what to do. I become addictive drugs and the worst one at that. Ed buck is the one to he gave me my first injection of crystal meth, it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted to the pain and fetish fantasy fetish slash fantasy. My life is at an all time high right now. And I mean that from all ways, I ended up back at bucks house again and got manipulated into slamming drugs, again, I even went to the point where I was forced to doing four within a two day period. This man is crazy. And it said will I ever get help? If it didn't hurt so bad kill myself. But I'll let Ed buck to it for now. And in talking to friend of mine who let's say his seen the world from that side. This is some that goes on and a lot more houses than just f- bucks. There are men who invite dudes to their house and pay them to take drugs and and party in play meaning to get high and perform sexual acts, and when I went over the the coroner's report from twenty seventeen it says that buck's home was a treasure trove of drugs, and there are other men who've confirmed to reporters at the Daily Beast and other other news agencies. What have you that? He has to be the one to inject you with the mess. He likes to have the control over the victim that the more you take the more money. He's willing to pay you. So it's like a game of chicken. But when you broke and living on the street, and someone's dying few on a bucks in front of you. Why wouldn't you play with that extra hot dose of crystal meth or heroin, whatever the fuck it pushing veins. Some somebody's guys don't wanna wake up tomorrow. And I mean. And God knows what kind of sex acts of being performed. But that works on vulnerable people who need money. Police and politicians of very aware of guys like this, and they were obviously aware of Ed bucks predilections. But part of the sick thinking aside from the money. He donates part of the thinking is, unfortunately, while these are basically sick homeless drug addicted black guy there even HIV who cares. Living out of shopping carts on skid row the sleeping on cardboard in the park downtown. Now, that's partly true. There are plenty guys who recruits who aren't homeless though as much as they're reckless with their lives and truly want a court danger for those people listen for those people nobody made you climb up those steps, but for the truly drug addicted guy, this is terribly sad. Any man who preys on the weak is of very dark salt and six months ago. The system district attorney's office said they weren't going to prosecute even though there are survivors..

"Now yesterday, big news in the world of West Hollywood and the gay community. It's about Ed buck who is a longtime democrat political donor. Who is gay and a big big. Name in both the LGBTQ community as well as the democratic community. These second black man African American in the last two years has died in his apartment as a result of a drug overdose overdose. So as a result of that a couple of things going on different different avenues of discussion. One is the LGBTQ community itself. And that is an issue that well, Steve Martin not that Steve Martin Steve Martin, a former West Hollywood city councilman who is described as gay which is hilarious that what a redundancy redundancy. The former. Ex West Hollywood councilman. Did you ever you ever see the when the council was first created the council was elected and out of the council? A the mayor is elected, right? It is not. I don't think the mayor is. It's chosen by the council. It used to be in those days and the first Mayor Ed forget his name reminds me at Heimlich. But it's not as close to that showed up at the first meeting wearing a boa. I'll be spectacular. And this was a lot of years ago. So anyway, Steve Martin who is a former West Hollywood city councilman as I say says it says a lot about the dark underbelly of the gay culture and West Hollywood, you said, we're all user slapping ourselves in the back about how open minded and diverse. We are. And frankly, the residents know that it's not always the case. When an incident like this comes up and makes us confront a lot of issues that are really uncomfortable. And it's not just a question of the drug use in the gay community. But also the fact of the racism that the gay community is being accused of in many ways forty six percent of West Hollywood residents identify as LGBTQ. Well, that's all that only forty six. I thought it'd be eighty six percent. The city is eighty percent white. So as a result of the second African American found dead in Ed bucks apartment. Now, you have protesters and they were protesting in front of the apartment yesterday talking about the other racism of how to two black guys are found dead in a white guy's apartment building. And the police are doing nothing about it. They've investigated it and nothing is happening. Police said there's not enough evidence for a criminal or any criminality here. Both were overdoses Ed Budde cat not much to do with the first time out. There was all kinds of paraphernalia drug using paraphernalia. When the the first death occurred this time around from what witnesses say the dead man who is now dead the black man who came over. It was already high. Totally intoxicated from what I understand. There was no paraphernalia ended up dying at bucks apartment when he died. We're being told a buck was in the shower, and it's not just a drug den. It was someone he has been a friend with and known for twenty five years. So it doesn't sound like there's criminality here in the police said there, isn't any. Well, you've got the protesters out saying, and I think the the gay part of it really doesn't matter to them. It literally is to black is white man's apartment connected to the Democratic Party. His political connections are such that. That's why the police said, no, we're not going to charge. We're not going to go beyond our initial investigation. Therefore, it's white versus black and blacks are being nailed because they're blacks and whites get off when there is a crime or a death of an African American. So those two issues are going on, you know, the part that I found fascinating yesterday. And Jen if you'll jump in on this is when of course, the news cameras news organizations are out there videoing, not only a protest, but the door they weren't in the apartment, but the front door of the apartment for guy who has this much money what a crappy little apartment he lives in. So funny, you say that I thought the same. Same thing. Yeah. What's this guy? He has a ton of money and he lives in West Hollywood apartment and building. That's not very impressive. And I was thinking to myself does he have another place is this like is this debut plays this? Let's have black people die place. Well, it didn't quite describe it that way. But yeah, just it's fast. It was like his meet up up little dang. It could be and we don't know now Jeffrey king who is a founder of an organization called meantime men's group, which is an outreach program for l l g b t q Blackman said he's received dozens of calls this week about the death and frustrated African American men black man who African American men who wondered how this could possibly happen again. Well, oh, and then he went to say if a young man was found dead in my house, I would have been handcuffed publicly humiliated in front of my house in front of my neighbors. Really? You've got a dead guy and the police, and you got a white person in there clearly a drug overdose. Or the argument they're going to handcuff him before even doing an investigation. I mean, do I buy that? I don't not I don't think. So I don't think so. Okay. Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who's in charge of the Mueller investigation is leaving.
