For years, The Horn News has reported on Democratic megadonor Ed Buck, who authorities are calling a dangerous sexual predator.
On Tuesday, police finally hauled the top Clinton donor out of his luxury apartment in handcuffs. Buck is charged with running a dangerous drug house where African-American men regularly died of overdoses.
Buck is reportedly being held on $4 million bail because he is a “violent, dangerous sexual predator” who offered drugs and money to addicted young African-American men in exchange for participating in sexual fetishes, including a fetish that involved administering dangerous doses of drugs, Los Angeles County prosecutors said in a motion. Buck “has no regard for human life,” the motion said.

In addition to operating a drug house, Buck is charged with furnishing methamphetamine and with battery causing serious bodily injury. He was scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday. Messages to his attorney, Seymour Amster, were not immediately returned.
Buck, 65, has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic politicians, including Gov. Gavin Newsom, Hillary Clinton, Rep. Ted Lieu, and Los Angeles politicians.
Buck came under investigation in January after 55-year-old Timothy Dean was found dead of a methamphetamine overdose in his apartment. Dean was dead for 15 minutes before anyone bothered to call 911, the autopsy later showed. It was the second such death in two years, following the July 2017 death of Gemmel Moore, 26.
Both men were the most vulnerable members of our society: black, gay, and poor. It was reported that Buck, who is white, reportedly had a sexual fetish for vulnerable people of color. According to WeHo Times, Buck was well known in the gay community for forcing poor African-American men to do dangerous amounts of drugs for his sexual gratification.
“Ed Buck loves to take pictures of these young men, loves to take videos of them in their inebriated state,” Jasmyne Cannick, an activist who is working with one of his alleged victim’s families, said in July.

Buck’s attorney had said Dean came to Buck’s home under the influence and didn’t ingest any drugs while there.
In their bail motion, however, prosecutors specifically blamed Buck’s actions for the two deaths.
“The documents also say Buck brought the latest victim to his home around Sept. 4 and injected the man with a dangerously large dose of methamphetamine. The victim left the apartment to get medical help, concerned he was having an overdose,” local news station KTLA reported.
On Sept. 11, the man returned and Buck injected him with two more dangerous doses, refused to help him and “thwarted” his efforts to get help until the man fled the apartment and called 911 from a gas station, prosecutors alleged. “His deadly behavior has not stopped,” prosecutors contended.
Buck’s “predatory acts and willful disregard for human life must be stopped before another life is lost,” their motion read.

In 2017, The Horn News asked if there was any more perfect example of the way the Democratic Party treats minorities than megadonor Buck?
A rich, white liberal with powerful connections says he’s “helping out” vulnerable, poor black men — while below the surface, they’re being used and abused.
For decades, Democrats have had strangleholds over poor minorities. The party, critics say, uses impoverished African-American men for their votes while promising economic help that never comes.
Rather than helping minorities in the cities they control, The Horn observed in 2017, Democrats use their stranglehold of power to reinforce the cycle of poverty by driving out business and entrepreneurs… which keeps the poor out of work and forced to vote for Democrat-backed entitlement programs.
Sort of like inviting vulnerable young men to an apartment and using their poverty to force drugs on them for sexual gratification?
Buck was not charged in either death, leading to questions over whether his wealth and his Democratic political ties influenced the investigation.
County district attorney’s spokesman Greg Risling said the investigations into the deaths of Moore and Dean continue.
