Yesterday on the show, we talked about a very unusual story about a man who bit off his own finger and swallowed it.
On Sunday night, 29-year-old Jargget Washington got high on PCP then proceeded to get himself into trouble.
First he stripped naked in the middle of an intersection and then started to attack car with his bare hands. He allegedly jumped on top of a car and tried to pull the driver out.
When the cops came and handcuffed him, he attempted to escape by gnawing of his own wrists, emptied his bowels and began to throw his waste at the cops, and while he was in jail, he bit off his own finger and swallowed it.
He was charged for carjacking, throwing bodily fluids at law enforcement, and being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance.
This shows how powerful a drug addiction can be, these aren’t things someone does when they are in control of their faculties.
If someone has a problem with drugs like Jargget, why do we let them have constitutional rights? They’re not in their right mind when they’re using and because they can’t stop using…they are not in control a good deal of the time.
If someone is biting off their own body parts because that is how high they are, they should go through a program where they lose their right, go into mandatory rehab, and no longer be able to hang in society until they can prove they are capable of being with the rest of the world again.
Why don’t we have a system like this in place? The fact that there are people out there like this guy who could be a danger to the rest of us is unacceptable. All the drama and crimes we see in society can be boiled down to four things: alcohol, drugs, off their medicine, or should be on medicine. Our government should be doing a better job helping these people and preventing them from hurting others.
Totally agree with this, and not only this, but for repeat offenders have a 3-strike system where at the 3rd offense within so much time causes serious jail time. I have a friend who has had to move out of his house with his mother because his dad has had a serious alcohol and drug issue while going off of bi-polar meds. (3/4 of the above) People like this cause grief and need to be locked up in a treatment facility.
A little overboard...
Sorry, as a libertarian, i think this idea is too much government.
I'm tired of the government protecting us from everything, every time something goes wrong we cry out, "WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT DOING TO PROTECT US FROM THIS EVER HAPPENING AGAIN?!!"
Well, the answer is the government is usually doing all it can while trying not to step on anyone's rights and become a gigantic police state where no one can even take a sh-t without the president's say so.
Bad stuff happens to good people.
Good things happen to bad people.
Time to grow the eff up, do everything you can to prevent it from happening to you and yours (like a concealed carry permit) and stop whining about how the government needs to swoop in and take care of all your problems, no matter who gets hurt in the process.
Still love ya BJ,
