By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

Wealthy and influential Democratic donor, Ed Buck was finally arrested for his sick and predatory behavior on homeless and other vulnerable gay Black men in the Los Angeles area.

On Tuesday, Buck was charged with operating a drug house, administering methamphetamine, and battery after another man suffered an overdose at Buck’s L.A home last week.

The 37-year-old man somehow managed to survive the overdose, after Buck injected him with an almost-lethal amount of methamphetamine.

This is the 3rd overdose at Buck’s L.A home since 2017, two Black men who also suffered overdoses, died at Buck’s home in the past.

WHITE MAN WHO TERRORIZED BLACK FAMILY WITH BURNING CROSS IN FRONT OF THEIR HOME GETS 11 YEARS IN PRISON

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

On Tuesday, a White supremacist man from Mississippi was sentenced to 11 years in prison, because he and a friend burned a cross in front of the house of a Black family to racially intimidate them.

Months ago Louis Revette, a 38-year-old man and his co-conspirator pleaded guilty to performing the crimes they were charged with, which included the federal felonies of using fire in the commission of a federal felony, interference with housing rights and a federal civil rights violation from the incident that happened in October 2017.

“I want everyone to know I’m not proud of what happened,” he told people in the court. “I hate what I did. I cannot even believe I did that. I’ve never done anything like that before in my life.”

“Those who instill fear and terror into our neighbors and our fellow citizens because of the color of their skin will face the full weight and force of the law from the U.S. attorney’s office,’ Mike Hurst, the U.S. attorney for Southern Mississippi, said in a statement from the Justice Department. “There is absolutely no place in our society or our country for this type of behavior, and we will do all that we can to prevent these racist acts and bring to justice those who are intent on committing these crimes.”

Revette’s co-conspirator, Graham Williams is scheduled to sentenced on November, 5 2019, and he could face up to 30 years in prison.
