College student abandoned in windowless room by DEA for 4 days without food, water

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Would you allow yourself to be locked up in a windowless room for four days without food or water? What if you would be paid about $1 million a day for your troubles? Well, that is exactly what happened to one college student, and a settlement was just reached that makes the man $4 million richer. Why was he locked up in the first place? Glenn reacted to the story on radio this morning.

TheBlaze reported:

A 25-year old college student reached a $4.1 million settlement with the federal government after he was abandoned in a windowless Drug Enforcement Administration cell for more than four days without food or water, his attorneys said Tuesday.

The DEA introduced national detention standards as a result of the ordeal involving Daniel Chong, including daily inspections and a requirement for cameras in cells, said Julia Yoo, one of his lawyers.

Chong said he drank his own urine to stay alive, hallucinated that agents were trying to poison him with gases through the vents, and tried to carve a farewell message to his mother in his arm.

    The local radio guys were hopping over this and taking calls left and right – for exactly one day.

    I thought that was EXTREMELY fishy, and possibly a cover-up, as well as the fact that not a single story appeared in a single paper, something I know from experience to accompany the never-ending street theater hoaxes.

    They FAIL to make it into the news, and that should be a dead giveaway to anyone.

    At the same time as being horrified like everyone else, I also heard the kid in an interview that day, and went – YET AGAIN – OMG, he’s ACTING!!!

    And BADLY!!

    The interviews now sound WAY different, and very convincing, but I gotta tell you, I think this is just another hoax of an incident that never actually happened, with a whole lot of money as the punchline.

    Something I’ve never before heard of in recent history and yet the “tragedies,” “emergencies,” “shootings,” “murders,” blah blah blah are coming at a rate of one-to-two per month, and the punchlines are either “….And we’re getting away with it, heh heh….” or “Wah, we’re victims, give us money!!”

    He said, she said, THEY said.  How does that automatically skip over to “truth?”  Anyone can say ANYTHING!!  Where’s the proof??

    Sorry to be tedious, I find them and their voracious addiction to deception and wrongdoing, and insane agenda utterly tiresome.

    What an incredible world it would be without the constant manipulation of reality by these miscreants.

    People can die in as little as 24 hrs if left without water. If they have a medical condition ( e.g. hypocalcemia) they can go into shock within hours if left without food; and then they die quickly thereafter.  Some people need daily medicine, or they will die.
     
    So, if the story is true; and if there was, indeed, no water, food, medicine and legal council provided, then I have absolutely no problem with a massive civil penalty because the man’s Constitutional rights were violated and his life was put in danger.

    If it’s a fake story, lots of news people fell for it.  If you Google it (or maybe I used Bing), you will get 2,590,000 articles.

    Same here. Those at fault over this need to be fired and prosecuted for civil rights violations if appropriate.

    In the story line it says, would you allow yourself to be locked up for four days in a windowless room for a million dollars.  The college student agreed to the deal, I would have to ask how old he was and if he was able to make the decision by himself.  He made 4.1 million dollars for four days – I believe I have a problem with that.  He made that decision how could his Constitutional rights be violated.  After all, I don’t believe the story was true according to TheSnivelingTwit.

    Only problem is the NDAA. That bill says that the government can detain you indefinitely, with no legal representation and it appears they don’t even have to give you food or water. The NDAA takes away his and everyone’s rights to due process. In fact, I doubt this guy could win a legal battle for this, because of the NDAA.

    Seems the NDAA is working as intended.
