Shryke: I, for one, am just glad we've finally balanced out the drug world so we don't have to describe every god damned drug as "sweet". We can finally use "savory", without suffering linguistic embarrassment.

  I can really feel the chemistry in here.

Baelz: Meridian isn't a small town. It's a suburb of Boise.

Sucks that this kind of crap is coming here. One thing about doing this crap in Idaho will end up with is someone getting shot. We can openly carry on our hips handguns here. So get high on bath salts and rampage the wrong person and you're done, and that is highly likely here.


At least the Idaho meth addicts mostly keep to themselves.

Huh. No mugshot here, and I don't use adblock at the office, so...

skinink: "We are trying to link him with another crime where we believe a bicyclist was battered," Basterrechea said."

A bath salt battered bicyclist doesn't sound too tasty.


What, it's too much trouble to throw out the bones and bike parts first?


Here's what bugs me: "Carnell is then suspected of confronting a 10-year-old boy who was riding his bike with his dog. Police say Carnell yelled at the boy and kicked his dog in the front leg and ribs, and then walked away."

Why stop at 1000 cuts?


ReverendJimBobHammer: As a reformed drunk and addict I can tell you that when I was using if someone told me that a pill would make me feel worse than I felt now I'd ask if I could have two. When you're an addict you just want to feel different to take your mind off your miserable life, it didn't matter if the drug made me feel better or worse just so long as it made me feel different.


Well, you're weird even by my standards: I do "substances" to feel BETTER. If I wanted to feel worse there's always trying to get laid in a college bar -- maybe sober on nights of major self-hatred. So tell me, how does it feel to be a failure as a pathetic loser?

He stole a guy in a wheelchair and then just tipped him over after a few blocks?

SordidEuphemism: Huh. No mugshot here, and I don't use adblock at the office, so...


The problem is on your end.  I run all the standard blocking extensions and have no problem with it.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume this guy is a royal asshole even when he's not high on bath salts.
 
2013-08-22 04:12:38 PM  
I don't always take bath salts...


...But when I do, I bathe myself in RRRAAAAAMPAAAAAAAGE!!!
 
2013-08-22 04:14:23 PM  
Oh shiat I'd forgotten about that stuff. Never once has it crossed my mind to go out and try it.

Kahabut: MrSplifferton: And you can buy this stuff at a tobacco shop yet weed is a schedule 1 drug...

What?  You buy bath salts at a tobacco shop?  Where the fark do you live?  Trailer park alley?


Not sure if I have seen them recently, a few years ago the were anywhere that you could by drug paraphernalia.

So if the prime suspect is from Meridian, you might say they are the prime Meridian?

Colin Coward: How old was he? The article didn't say.


Seriously, five mentions of his age in one short article? WE GET IT.

I do wonder how these salts make you feel or what the make you think.

I can see the reason for using most altering substances, but this is one I just don't get.

I've never heard anyone say something like, "Well thank God he was on bath salts, or that would have been a real mess."

Substitute 'different' with 'more wasted', and you've just described me from 16 through 28. I've tried many, many combinations of many, many acronymed 'designer' tablets and powders, in the attempt to fulfil that precise goal: more wasted, please.
 
2013-08-22 05:59:13 PM  
At least he didn't try to chew anyone's head off.

The One True TheDavid: So tell me, how does it feel to be a failure as a pathetic loser?


umm, how does it feel to be such a part-timer drug-poseur?

Sofa King Smart: am I the only one picturing something like this in the police report. Family Circus.


LOL! too good...bravo Bil Keane would be proud

A Terrible Human: Mitrovarr: How much do you want to bet this guy wasn't on bath salts at all? It's becoming the go-to boogeyman whenever someone does something batshiat, but like the face-eating guy, I bet they'll find he wasn't on them at all.

Ah but do we really know? A ton of research chemicals aren't picked up by normal drug tests.

Easy Reader: Some of those  copbath salt videos are pretty funny/sad.  Some dude flopping around like a fish making a lot of noises is fairly amusing if you can give yourself permission to laugh at it.

I'm going to need those links.


Look up Bath Salts on Youtube.  Tons of videos.  Just people going nuts.  I feel bad for them, but they got themselves into it willingly.

I'm with those who think he might just be a totally sober jerk. If you want me to believe he's on bath salts (or PCP or "wet") I'll need two or more of the following:
[_] Naked
[_] Gnawing on people
[_] Talking utter gibberish
[_] Punching police, police cars, police horses (Mongo!)

99.998er: I guess I am a weirdo, but I think it would have been fun to watch the bath salt guy take off with the guy in the wheelchair.


Only sped up with Yakkety Sax playing in the background.

These bath salts seem like a lot of fun. I can't believe I haven't tried these.

TuteTibiImperes: Why do people use bath salts?  I mean, I can understand other drugs that tend to have a calming/euphoric effect like marijuana or opiates, or psychedelics/hallucinogens that open your mind and allow you to see the world different, and though they don't appeal to me at all, I can see why some people could get behind things like meth or cocaine that give you that 'alpha dog king of the world tons of energy' effect.

From what I've heard though bath salts just make you feel jittery, anxious, nervous, paranoid, and angry, and there's plenty of evidence that they can lead you to do crazy things, what's the appeal?


Someone I know tried bath salts before, but he used them properly. Never snorted. Never took a large amount. What it did for him was give him euphoria and made him alert. Like an instant happy mood swing. These people in the news? I don't know their deal. Maybe it's a different batch, and maybe they're taking the whole damn container at once. Something is amiss, tho. I'm guessing the nimrods take too much and venture into the bad side-effects like rage, etc.

This article explains a lot: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/multimedia/bath-salts/

Thank you, Tute Tibilmperes for asking that question. I wanted to know also.

I still don't get it. I got it when I heard about the use of THC, since about 50% of the time, the user got high -- and the other 50% became a raving maniac.

Then again, I've heard of idiots dipping their joints in embalming fluid -- a nasty concoction of poisons as it is -- to get higher and then wonder why they're falling over dead or psychotic. You'd think they'd learn.
