All you can say in this site's defence is that it, rather than reality, occupies the warped minds of some of the planet's most twisted people; gods know what they would get up to if it wasn't here.  In these arguably insane times, any lessening or attenuation of madness is maybe something to be thankful for.

QuoteSAN DIEGO — A San Diego college student who federal drug agents forgot and left in a holding cell for five days without food, water or access to a toilet said Tuesday that he drank his own urine to survive.

Daniel Chong also said that he bit into his glasses to break them and tried to use a shard to scratch "Sorry Mom" into his arm, according to U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/JRlSr8).

The 24-year-old University of California, San Diego, engineering student was swept up as one of nine suspects in an April 21 drug raid that netted 18,000 ecstasy pills, other drugs and weapons.

Chong said federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents told him he would be let go. One agent even promised to drive him home from the DEA field office in Kearny Mesa, he said.

Instead, he was returned to a holding cell to await release. DEA spokeswoman Amy Roderick said he was accidentally left there.

Lovely:
Quotehe could hear the muffled voices of agents outside his five-by-10-foot windowless cell and the door of the next cell being opened and closed. He kicked and screamed as loud as he could, but apparently, his cries for help went unheard....

..."When they opened the door, one of them said 'Here's the water you've been asking for," Chong said. "But I was pretty out of it at the time."

Here's the part I love the best:
QuoteChong also ingested a white powder DEA agents said was left in the cell accidentally and later identified as methamphetamine.

They're so fucking cavalier about it. "We accidentally left him there...and we accidentally left some meth in the cell too." Yeah, and the accidentally didn't hear him screaming "WATER!" and "HELP!" for five days but someone walked in and said "Here's the water you've been asking for?" Were they aware he was in there or not?

You have to expect some casualties in The War on Drugs.

"Oh, we accidentally left him in a cell with meth for 5 days."  Eggs, omelets.

I for one, am glad that we are doing all we can to stomp out the scourge of drugs in America, even if it means that we have to essentially bury people alive with said drugs.  As a lesson to the others.

Yes, prohibition is the only possible route.  We have to show these little fuckers who the boss is.

Or they might hurt themselves or something.

Is he going to sue the dea?

if he does, they'll probably throw the book at him. If not, they might just fine him and try to hide this as much as possible

an unofficial plea bargain

He obviously didn't full out the proper forms
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

And there's no doubt he had the wrong values.  He should consider himself lucky to have gotten off so lightly...Most times, they don't pull you out of the oubliette.  They just sweep the bones up every other generation or so.

And if anyone else got thrown in the holding cell, you could help them with the bugs beneath their skin.

I don't think they put more than one person in each oubliette.

They should.  Two or more, one bag of meth, and then take bets.

They could even use a phone to video the whole thing and upload it to Youtube.
