BJ'S BLOG 10/24/12 "High on PCP"
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.
