His rates are going to go up.

Actually, if the real shiat were legal and he didn't have to go smoke some synthetic brain killing shiat, he probably would have been sitting at home murdering a bag of Funyuns instead.

But, since we're such a backward-ass culture, the real, natural high is illegal while the synthetic stuff that makes people eat babies' faces is A-OK!

The fact that the fake stuff can mess you up is proof how dangerous the real stuff is.

Well, now I"m hearing voices too.  Specifically, Jeff Sessions cackling.

Booze is legal and plenty of (assholes) drive drunk and kill people.

The problem here isn't a law, the problem is assholes who get in a rhinocerous-load of metal and then make it move as fast as a cheetah.

Probably from all of the people he was running over.

"The burgundy Honda saloon"

Is that some kind of British slang?
 
2017-05-19 10:50:55 AM  
From recent reports, he literally does have mental problems, so the K2 probably didn't help the situation.
 
2017-05-19 10:51:14 AM  
But he was injecting the marijuanas.
 
2017-05-19 10:54:04 AM  
This pisses me off.  Sessions and his fellow culture warriors will be happy as below-average-intelligence clams, and will certainly blame weed, even though K2 is nothing like weed.  It's infuriating because K2 and the other "synthetic cannabinoids" exist because of said culture warriors trying to force their morality on everyone else.

We've been warning you kids about that wacky tobacky for years now, and yet you keep on smoking it with your hair and earrings and free love and low rider pants.

Is the synthetic stuff legal now?

Yes.

It means "sedan" in normal English.

A saloon is the British term for a sedan.

K2 is not weed, or even a substitute.

I'm pretty sure he didn't HAVE to smoke a single thing.

Sigh, FARK is so slow.


The driver of the 2009 Honda Accord -- Richard Rojas, 26, of the Bronx -- tested positive for PCP and told police that God made him do it, a law enforcement source told CNN.

First off, FU, subby.

Second, this probably isn't some normal guy who just wigged out on drugs.  ftfa

According to media reports, he has a history of offending:
He was arrested for threatening a man with a knife earlier this month
He was arrested for drink-driving in 2015
He spent two months in a military prison in South Carolina, in 2013 - it is not clear why
In 2012, he attacked a taxi driver at a naval base in Florida, shouted "my life is over" and threatened to kill police - after which he was charged with misdemeanour battery and resisting an officer without violence
He was arrested for drink-driving in 2008


So more likely plain old "madness".

What are the odds that this schizophrenic ex-Navy guy is getting zero help from the VA and resorts to self-medicating with whatever he can get his hands on?

It's loadking quickly for me. Perhaps one of the tubes is clogged, and a plumber is on order. Someone let Drew know.

Quit calling that shiat "synthetic marijuana".  It ain't nothing like it...it's a whole different drug.

Honest question: Can anyone explain the 5 charges of aggravated vehicular homicide for an act resulting in only one death? I don't even have my GED in law.

Aggravated vehicular homicide sounds like he killed a car.

I agree with the sentiment but this is NYC. If he wanted to smoke weed he would have no trouble actually finding the real deal. He wanted to smoke synthetic crap. But he also sounds like his mental illness just manifested. Hes definitely in the right age range mid 20s is usually when things can no longer stay hidden.

The American government would rather soldiers come home dead than survive with mental illnesses. That's what we can learn from this and every other incident like this. Bunch of motherfarkers running the shiatshow.

 The "real deal" is a lot more expensive than K2.

the pedestrians found out the driver didn't pick the right day to stop using amphetamines.

/surely you can't be serious.
//the white sidewalk is for immediate killing and hurting of pedestrians only
///there is no stopping the slashies

It's related to marijuana in that both things exist?

"Afterwards, victims lay on the ground, many of them separated from their scattered shoes and belongings"

I vividly recall working a pedestrian v vehicle crash.  The young ladies sneakers stayed right where she was hit.

And I'm glad that was thoroughly covered while I walked away from my computer without hitting submit.

He was Navy.  You know what that means....

It looks like this man had problems long before he chose to take this drug.

Substance abusers be abusing substances.  And white knighting each other.

I haven't lived in NYC in close a decade. I was down there a couple weeks ago, the phone number for my old delivery service still worked! "Burgundy minivan, 20 minutes". Gotta love NYC.

Must have been a 1%er.  Society mourns them 500% more than a peon.
