I don't support a suspected drug dealer getting $20mil from a government agency that ultimately does more good than harm.


Also, common sense dictates you don't eat shit you find on the floor of a jail cell. Are the entrance requirements for UCSD so low that they accept people who think its reasonable to eat white powder you find on the ground?
Spending a few days in a dark room by yourself will make you do crazy things also 20 mill is just the starting point.

Is this a serious post? He was never charged.

The guy wasn't "busted in a drug sting". He was at a house smoking a J on 420. Other people were busted for mushrooms and ecstacy and were sent to jail. He was brought in for questioning, told he was not being charged, was being released, and that they would drive him home.

They then left him in a cell, handcuffed, with no lights, no toilet, no food, no water, and no expectation that anyone would ever help him get out. He could hear people outside his door but no one would respond to his cries for help.

Anyone saying they would go through that same thing for a million dollars is kidding themselves. Sure if you had the retrospect that you would get out alive, that is one thing.. but this guy didn't know that.

What do you think starts going through your mind after 24 hours of solitary confinement? 48 hours? How about when the lights go off... for days... 72 hours passes without a single person checking in on you and you slowly start to realize that there is a very legitimate chance you are going to die in that cell... that would seriously fuck with anyone.

Remember that guy locked in the elevator for 2-3 days no food no water taking a leak/dump in the corner. He wasn't locked in a dark cell & handcuffed but basically lost his mind stuck in a elevator this dea case is worse and as bad as it comes. You know how you go to work in the morning and by noon you are hungry bahahaha 5 days= 15 meals plus 20L of liquids (4L per day) that would turn me into a raisin.

BTW people just because a claim asks for $20 million does not mean that it is what he is going to get... remember the McDonalds coffee incident when the lady was awarded millions of dollars... she apparently ended up with less than $600K in settlement.

I brought it up because it's the easiest and most famous example to explain the misconceptions that the public have when they see a $20 million dollar lawsuit claim in America (see multiple posts in this thread).

Dude got $4-mill.


Quote:
A university student in the US city of San Diego has received $4.1m (2.7m) from the US government after he was abandoned for more than four days in a prison cell, his lawyer said.

Daniel Chong said he drank his urine to stay alive, tried to carve a message to his mother on his arm and hallucinated.

He was held in a drug raid in 2012, but told he would not be charged. Nobody returned to his cell for four days.

The justice department's inspector is now investigating what happened.

Mr Chong, now 25, said he slid a shoelace under the door and screamed to get attention before five or six people found him covered in his faeces in the cell at the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) San Diego headquarters.

After Mr Chong was rescued, he spent five days in hospital recovering from dehydration, kidney failure, cramps and a perforated oesophagus. He also lost 15lb (7kg).

'Horrible accident'
Mr Chong was one of nine people detained in the raid in April 2012. Authorities determined that they would not pursue charges after questioning him.

One of Mr Chong's lawyers said a police officer then put him in the holding cell and told him: "We'll come get you in a minute."

Mr Chong said he thought he was forgotten by mistake.

"It sounded like it was an accident - a really, really bad, horrible accident," he said.

The 5-by-10-foot (1.5-3m) cell had no windows and Mr Chong had no food or water while he was trapped inside for four-and-a-half days.

Mr Chong said he started hallucinating on the third day.

He urinated on a metal bench so he could have something to drink. He also unsuccessfully tried to set off a fire sprinkler to draw attention of the DEA authorities.

"I didn't just sit there quietly. I was kicking the door yelling," he was quoted as saying by the Associated Press news agency.

"I even put some shoestrings, shoelaces through the crack of the door for visual signs. I didn't stay still, no, I was screaming."

At one point, Mr Chong admitted, he thought he was going to die. He broke his eyeglasses by biting into them and tried to carve a "Sorry Mom" farewell message. He managed to finish an "S".

DEA spokeswoman Allison Price confirmed that the $4.1m settlement had been reached, without providing further details, according to the AP.

The incident prompted the head of the DEA to issue a public apology last May, saying he was "deeply troubled" by the incident.

Mr Chong's lawyer said that as a result of the incident the DEA had introduced new policies for detention, including checking cells daily and installing cameras inside them.

Mr Chong, now an economics student at the University of California, says he plans to buy his parents a house.

interesting. dude gets stuck in a cell due to a drug investigation and has to drink some urine... RS'ers say he should be getting millions. Dude pulls out a knife on a bus, doesn't hurt anyone, gets shot at 9 times by police, RS'ers say he deserved it and his own fault for being an idiot....

^ cause he did nothing illegal, was at the wrong place wrong time, hanging with the wrong people

and knife on a bus, screaming profanity and being aggressive? that warrants to being shot in most cases, but definitely not deserving of 9 shots

and how do you know that he did nothing illegal? Just because no charges were filed doesn't mean he's innocent. as far as the guy on the bus goes, none of the things you listed are illegal, so why did he DESERVE to be shot?

just curious, do you have fetal alcohol syndrome or something? its hard to believe someone without massive mental disabilities could be this stupid

as per the bill of rights
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges ... of citizens ... nor ... deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny ... the equal protection of the laws"

and also um, something we like to call habeas corpus

being a direct and immediate threat to others (and yourself) is different than being detained for suspicion... and being deserted for four days with no food or water, if they forgot about him for another day or two he would have died. that would be a torturous slow death.

the guy on the bus didn't deserve to be shot, but he was gonna be taken down for sure one way or another.

drug suspicion/possession is not a threat to anyone. having a knife and screaming like a crazy in public is a major threat. there's a big difference dude.

no one DESERVES to get killed, but if you play on the train tracks, you're likely to get crushed.
