The Drug Enforcement Administration issued an apology Wednesday to a California student who was picked up during a drug raid and left in a holding cell for several days without food, water or access to a toilet.

Five days, maybe they had a good reason?

Chong, 23, was never arrested, was not going to be charged with a crime and should have been released, said a law enforcement official who was briefed on the DEA case and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Nope, it’s that none of the officers cared to do their job.  When he screamed for help they ignored him.  Of course the statement of how this individual is going to correct the situation is classic jazz hands.

Sherman says the event is not indicative of the high standards to which he holds his employees. He says he has personally ordered an extensive review of his office’s policies and procedures.

State Sponsored Criminal Count 320: DEA

Because officers of the law can forget about citizens and abuse them all they like.  To the point of near death, it’s all good for the “war on nouns” right?

    I’m sensing one hell of a lawsuit here for wrongful imprisonment and neglect.
