Police say a person called 911 that a man had jumped off the Pflugerville Pedestrian Bridge, swam to the south shore and then took his clothes off. Police responded and met the caller, who said the man seemed under the influence of drugs and was verbally abusive towards him and others on the hike and bike trail before running east, wearing only his red boxer shorts.

He was found by police at Auditorium Shores next to South First Street. The Affidavit says Leask tried to speak to the officers but wasn’t making any sense, saying that he was god and he just wanted to die.

The keye tv evening news segment said police think this naked druggie was on the same or similar drug as the naked druggie who ate the face of the homeless man a few days ago. Apprently there's some really bad stuff out there. This may be a good time to have another talk with your teenagers.

"Bath salts???????"

Yes, and pot isn't always a vessel that holds water.

What do you expect from a city who’s motto is:

At least the guy didn’t go for the medic’s face.

Yeah, things are getting pretty weird over here. There have been a few murders by people under the influence of drugs made from bath salts, and people are calling them “zombie killings” because of the way the perpetrators act.

Then when the police taser someone like this and the person dies they blame the taser.

Bath Salts are the streetname for an 80 year old synthetic drug (now reaching mainstream) called "Mephedrone"

As see my hands posted, think of how strange it would be if you saw stories of people being high on "grass" and never ever printing the name marijuana.

>>Bath salts? Bath salts???????

It’s basically because the illicit material is “not for human consumption” which all these illicit drug producers use to get around government classification as Class I.

These bath salts are basically like cocaine, meth, and PCP combined. They also are short length with extreme depression on comedown, so the user redoses more and more and eventually, after to succumbing to raging paranoia, attacks someone.

You want to know how bad this stuff is? I had a criminal defendant who was a meth head tell me that he tried that stuff, but quit because that stuff is messed up.

It’s a street name for an illegal drug.

Ahhh, thanks for the education. I thought it was something newly-concocted, not 80yrs old. Wowzer. I don’t remember the name, Mephedrone, in that article about the Miami ‘face-eater’. I must have missed it, somehow.

Maybe he wasn't hungry at that time.

Same drug suspected in this awful case that happened Memorial Day weekend in Miami Beach:

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/broward/fl-911-cannibal-calls-20120601,0,3976945.story

This monster, high on something, ATE the face off a homeless man. The monster was shot 6 times by police - he seemed oblivious to his gunshot wounds.

It wasn’t. Nearly every article ever printed about the substance refuses to include its proper name. Its rather odd, really. I had to research this.

Gosh, I miss the good ol’ days when kids just sniffed gasoline & glue.

I guess 50 years from now kids will get high on radioactive waste.

Let’s legalize heroin. Then the druggies can go to sleep.

And marijuana. Maybe if it’s available in sufficient quantity, the druggies will take it straight, and not combine it with PCP or embalming fluid. Then they’ll just get the munchies.

All someone needs to do..be it the Mexican Drug Cartel, US Mafia, Political Mafia, Chicago Obamites, etc is start pushing these bath salts to create a hellish situation in the US.

I have noticed that I am just now hearing stories about this even though the drug has been around for years.

I expect it to increase.

Well if the kids get high off of sniffing radioactive waste it won’t be all that hard to tell whose the druggie they will be the ones who glow in the dark & make gieger counters go nuts.
