Cannibal Copycat? Police Say Man High On Bath Salts Threatened To Eat Officer
CBS Tampa ^ | June 6, 2012

Posted on 06/06/2012 10:41:55 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

MIAMI (CBS Tampa) – If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Rudy Eugene, the Miami cannibal who chewed off a homeless man’s face while reportedly high on bath salts, has an admirer in his own neighborhood.

Brandon De Leon, 21, was arrested Saturday after getting into a fight at a local Boston Market and resisting arrest, but his threats of wanting to eat a Miami police officer followed by his attempt to bite the officer have raised more concern following the recent act of cannibalism in the Miami area that has made international headlines.

CBS News reports that North Miami Beach Police spotted De Leon arguing with Brian Yerdon, 33, outside a Boston Market on Saturday. The verbal fight reportedly blocked the entrance so no customers could enter or exit, according to police. WTVJ-TV reports that when police tried to break up the fight, De Leon gave them the middle finger, saying, “F— you,” in the process, according to police. De Leon and Yerdon were arrested at the scene, though De Leon was reportedly physically resisting arrest.

When he was finally detained by police, De Leon would repeatedly bang his head against the Plexiglas in the police car, yelling, “I’m going to eat you,” at a police officer, according to police reports. Media reports indicate that De Leon’s actions reached a level that police deemed it necessary to place the 21-year-old in a bite mask and leg restraints.

“Brandon growled and opened and closed his jaw,” the report said, “slamming his teeth like an animal would.”

Interesting that there was a time when 'bath salts' were stuff people added to baths.

I was just going to ask how anyone gets high on bath salts. I guess they’re NOT adding it to bathwater? ;-)

Silly cannibal, bath salts are for soaking in, not sautéing in.

‘Bath salts’ is just the legal fiction under which the stuff is sold. It’s a form of LSD.

I also thought that bath salts were for the bath.

However, I would hold judgement until seeing a picture of the policeman(woman) this weirdo was attempting to eat.

Stop it. Even after the earliest reports it was clear this was nothing like LSD. “LSD” is a catch-all term used by the uninformed when referring to scary drugs. Even the cop who shot the Original Face Eater referred to LSD. Uggh..

“Bath Salts” are NOT literally Bath Salts. That is the name they sell under in an attempt to be legal. They were sold out of “head shops” along with some other synthetic non drug drugs. They are designer drugs deceptively marketed.

“to avoid being controlled by the Medicines Act, designer drugs such as mephedrone have been described as “bath salts” or “plant food”, despite the compounds having no history of being used for these purposes. Due to these inaccurate descriptions of products, it is possible that selling the compounds under these descriptions could be illegal under the Trade Descriptions Act.[26][27][28]

In the USA, similar descriptions have been used to describe mephedrone as well as methylone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV).[29][30] Combined with labeling that they are “not for human consumption”, these descriptions are an attempt to skirt the Federal Analog Act which forbids drugs that are “substantially similar” to already classified drugs from being sold for human use.[31] In addition, MDMA and methamphetamine have also been sold labeled as bath salts.[32]”

“...doesn’t react to being shot...”

My Barret and Beowulf .50cals would get a reaction, real quick. So would my Kimber 1911 .45 ACP.

Anyone remember the Cursed Bread incident in France?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/7415082/French-bread-spiked-with-LSD-in-CIA-experiment.html

“One man tried to drown himself, screaming that his belly was being eaten by snakes. An 11-year-old tried to strangle his grandmother. Another man shouted: “I am a plane”, before jumping out of a second-floor window, breaking his legs. He then got up and carried on for 50 yards. Another saw his heart escaping through his feet and begged a doctor to put it back. Many were taken to the local asylum in strait jackets. “

“So, incredibly, it decided to slip acid secretly to Americans — at the beach, in city bars, at restaurants. For a decade, the CIA conducted completely uncontrolled tests in which they drugged people unknowingly, then followed and watched them without intervening. In some cases, the agency used the drug to perform interrogations, but these procedures were conducted so inconsistently that they proved equally useless in providing useful data.”

Did you read your link? "mephedrone isn't exactly like meth, cocaine, ecstasy (MDMA), or other new designer drugs, according to rat studies led by pharmacologist Annette E. Fleckenstein, PhD, and colleagues at the University of Utah."

The Daily Mail reports that De Leon’s blood-alcohol level was 0.29.

Ban the drug alcohol!

Yes. It isn’t exactly like any of those drugs but also is not LSD.
