Street drug laced with BUG SPRAY transforms casual users into crazed ZOMBIES

(Natural News)
One of the least expensive but deadliest street drugs available today is known as KD, Katie or Zombie. This drug may contain different ingredients, but the common denominator is always bug spray. Users take marijuana, banana leaves, tobacco or spice and lace it with a bug spray, most often Raid. This concoction is then smoked, giving users a 45-minute high that leaves them virtually unconscious. Some people choose to make their own drugs, while others buy it for around $20 a bag. Irrespective of where they get it, however, it is incredibly addictive and absolutely lethal.

In recent weeks, Indianapolis medics have had to deal with around a dozen KD overdoses each day, with some people overdosing repeatedly on the same day. Even for those users who don’t actually overdose on KD its effects are incredibly disturbing and cause what have been described by authorities as “zombie-like” reactions.

Onlookers describe users who become “slow and lethargic,” drool, and lose all motor function or the ability to communicate with others. In short, while in the throes of a high, KD users become totally unaware of and utterly unable to control their actions.

“We find them with their clothes off, eating the grass, pulling dirt out of the ground and trying to put it in their mouth,” Fire Department Captain Chris Major told CBS-affiliate WTTV.

This is perhaps unsurprising considering the ingredients in a typical bug spray like Raid. Inquisitr reported that these sprays generally contain piperonyl butoxide, permethrin, cypermethrin and imiprothrin, among others – all of which are incredibly harmful chemicals. And, when mixed with other ingredients and smoked, this cocktail becomes even more toxic. (Related: Commonly used insecticides impair child brain development even at low exposure levels.)

“You look at what it does to a bug,” firefighter Scott Lebherz told the Indy Star, “and then you got to think what it’s doing to your brain, and your body and everything else.”

Health officials have warned that smoking this drug carries an “extreme risk of fatality,” but users become addicted so quickly that few have heeded the warnings. The fire department reports that the drug is so fast-acting that many overdose victims are found with the drug still in their hands. (Related: Is your insect repellent made from toxic ingredients?)

Men’s Health recently reported:

Bug sprays often have high concentrations of pyrethroids, a pesticide that is meant to knock out or kill bugs like roaches. According to a 2014 study by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, “Animal studies of pyrethroid toxicity have shown hyperglycemia and elevated plasma levels of noradrenaline and adrenaline” — meaning the drug will give users one big adrenaline rush before having a rapid comedown. This quick high can make it highly addictive.

Indianapolis authorities are urgently trying to determine the source of the KD being sold on the city’s streets.

WATCH: Crazed Cop Terrorizes & Shoots Innocent People With His Taser in Pizza Restaurant

tasertaser

Pittsburgh, PA — In a testament to the above the law mentality of police in America, a veteran Pittsburgh was captured on video terrorizing innocent people with his taser at a pizza restaurant. The incident shows the sheer arbitrary and callous nature of the cop as he shoots the taser prongs into an innocent worker as another innocent woman sat in between them.

Officer Ronald Hough, a 23 year veteran of the force who serves on the department’s motorcycle division is now under investigation for his assault on Dominic Reale, 46, whose father owns Villa Reale Pizzeria and Restaurant. Both the city’s Office of Municipal Investigations and the Citizen Police Review Board are now investigating.

According to Reale’s attorney, Joel Sansone, Hough is a regular customer at the pizza restaurant and the two of them had actually eaten together before the incident.

According to Sansone, the two were friendly in the context of the pizza restaurant but had no contact outside of it.

Surveillance footage captured the attack on video and it is nothing short of egregious and unprovoked. In the video, we see Reale at work in his shirt and apron as the two men engage in conversation.

The conversation lasts about three minutes until Reale walks away. Officer Hough followed Reale around the counter then circles back to the other side where he would eventually deploy his taser.

According to Sansone, Reale then stands behind a woman and jokingly told the officer he would have to shoot her to get to him.

“As a joke, he put this young woman between himself and the police officer, thinking it would dissuade this officer from foolish conduct,” Mr. Sansone said. “But when he saw it didn’t, he got out of her way and went behind the counter.”

As the video shows, Reale walks behind the counter and leans over to talk to the woman. At this point, Hough pulls out his taser, raises it over the innocent woman’s shoulder and fires it into the innocent man—for no reason.

Reale instantly collapses from the jolt of the taser, dropping his water bottle in the process. Then, in some sick and twisted fashion, Hough walks over to Reale, pulls the taser prongs out, helps him to his feet, and pats him off.

No arrest was made, no charges were filed. Hough seemingly deployed his taser for no other reason than because he could. As the video shows, Hough stays at the restaurant for another four minutes as a clearly distraught Reale paces around waiting for his abuser to leave.

“Mr. Reale is just standing there talking to this young woman and literally with zero provocation of any type or kind, this officer took out his Taser, discharged his Taser into my client’s chest within inches of the young lady,” Mr. Sansone said.

Reale explained to the Post-Gazette that this incident has left him “totally shocked.” He also noted that after the incident, which happened on October 30, multiple cops came to the restaurant to threaten and intimidate him.

“I’m terrified,” Mr. Reale said. “I’m still terrified. I’ve been threatened.”

Sansone said Thursday that “numerous” police officers had visited the restaurant and “intimidated” Mr. Reale, with some suggesting he delete the video. Mr. Sansone would not reveal specifics but said the “intimidation” began the day of the incident and continued as recently as Wednesday, reported the Gazette.

“Some want to cover it up, and some want the officer to burn,” he said. “And we have no interest in either of those. We have an interest in my client being left alone.”

Insanely enough, this was the second time in only a week Hough pulled out his taser inside the pizza restaurant. On Oct. 23, Hough was seen on surveillance video threatening a man with his taser as he fixed the cash register.

In that video, Hough pulls out his taser, points it in the direction of the man and, according to a witness, said, “If you don’t hurry up and fix that, I’m going to tase you,” Mr. Sansone said.

Luckily for the innocent cash register repairman, Hough was feeling less tyrannical that day and chose not to deploy the taser.

“When police officers abuse their power, all of us are in danger,” Mr. Sansone said. “And so we must exercise our duty as the owners of this republic to monitor and control the conduct of those to whom we give the right to use deadly force. This family is an iconic Pittsburgh small-business family that should not have suffered the abuses that they have suffered at the hands of this misguided public servant.”

Below is an example of what happens when society refuses to hold police officers accountable for their actions. Police become so detached from regular citizens that they think it is okay to threaten, intimidate, and even inflict pain on innocent people, just to get their rocks off.

WATCH: Crazed Cop Beats Innocent Man With a Baton, Forces Him Onto Electric Train Tracks

traintrain

Cherry Hill, DE — Ryan Patterson of Philadelphia was visiting a friend last year when he got off on the wrong train stop. As he sat and waited for the next train, however, he was approached by a tyrant cop who began beating him with a baton and pepper spraying him. Eventually, the violent cop would force Patterson onto the electric train tracks almost killing him.

The entire incident was started because Patterson accidentally got off at the wrong train stop. Patterson had bought a round-trip ticket to Haddonfield and was returning to Philadelphia but had gotten on a train going in the wrong direction. He had committed no crime and had harmed no one when a cop with a short fuse decided to make his life a living hell.

According to Police documents, Port Authority Transit Corp. Officer Michael Fiocca followed Patterson to the westbound platform about 7:45 p.m. and asked for his ticket. Patterson responded angrily, according to the report, but showed the officer his ticket, which was not for Woodcrest Station, and then showed him identification.

At this point, Fiocca should have let Patterson go about his business. However, he decided to try to arrest him for no reason instead. Patterson, not wanting to be unlawfully kidnapped by this crazed officer, remained seated, noting that he wanted to simply get back on the correct train and continue to his destination.

Again, at this point, the officer — who had no legal basis for arrest — should’ve walked away. Instead, he chose to pepper spray Patterson in the face.

After he was hit with a chemical agent for refusing to be unlawfully kidnapped, he stood up and backed away with his hands up. At no time, during the entire interaction, did Patterson ever pose a threat or try to harm the officer.

However, the officer, who described Patterson as “much larger than me in stature and weight,” escalated force once again and began beating Patterson with his baton. Again, Patterson remained calm and simply stated that he is not under arrest.

Patterson then sat down again, at which point the officer began hitting him. This time, however, having been beaten about his legs and lower body—and, after being pepper sprayed a second time—Patterson lost his balance and fell onto the electric tracks below.

Had Patterson landed on the actual tracks, and made contact with the rail’s electrical current, he would have been fried instantly.

Seemingly realizing he’d messed up big time, Fiocca went from hurting Patterson to helping him and called in other officers to hoist him up back onto the platform.

Patterson was taken to Kennedy-Stratford Hospital and was released with a citation for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Both of these charges would be dismissed once authorities saw the video. And instead of Patterson getting in trouble, the Delaware River Port Authority fired the PATCO transit officer in September 2016 after initially suspending him.

“We have made a determination that the incident reflects actions inconsistent with our organizational core values and in direct conflict with the high standard of conduct we demand from our law enforcement officials,” DRPA CEO and PATCO President John Hanson said in a statement last year about the decision to fire Fiocca.

This week, Ryan Patterson filed a lawsuit against the former police officer in the Court of Common Pleas.

“Unfortunately this type of officer misconduct reaches all of our communities with increasing regularity,” said Thomas Fitzpatrick, an attorney representing Patterson. “We will fight for justice for Mr. Patterson and others like him who have their rights violated by those that swear to protect them.”

Crazed Cop Follows Elderly Couple Home, Beats and Arrests Them—for Honking Horn

couplecouple

Akron, OH — An elderly Ohio couple, who’ve never been in trouble with the law before got a hefty dose of the police state this week because they honked their horn at the wrong cop.

Carl and Margaret Wilson were on their way home this week when they came up behind a Summit Metro Parks ranger.

“I tooted the horn and went around; he swung out behind me and followed me up,” Carl Wilson told FOX 8.

But that is when the ranger’s road rage kicked in and he began following the couple home.

“So I come up here and pulled in the driveway and that’s when he pulled in behind me,” Carl explained.

Carl then told FOX 8 that he never expected what was going to happen next.

“He was screaming, said, ‘get out of the truck,’ and ‘get on the ground.’ I said, ‘what`s wrong with you?’ I said, ‘I’m no criminal; why did you follow me?’”

Wilson explained that the ranger pulled him from his truck and threw him on the ground.

“He was absolutely crazy like he was on drugs and he wouldn’t answer any questions.”

Margaret explained that the crazed officer scared her and she thought he may hurt Carl who has to wear a protective vest due to an operation on his heart.

“I just thought he was going to hurt him because, you know, he has no protection here,” she said.

When Margaret got out of her car to confront the apparent road raging officer, he then threatened to hurt her.

“I said, ‘you’re not going to hurt Carl,’ and he said, ‘woman, stand back; I’ll spray you with this mace.’”

Suddenly, however, instead of simply threatening to hurt the elderly woman, the officer took to actually hurting her.

“We were standing here at the door of the truck and he ran all the way back and took his foot and kicked her, messed up her elbow, messed up her back,” Carl explained.

A family friend took to Facebook to explain what happened.

These are Mary’s parents, Carl and Margaret Wilson. Both in their seventies, and Carl is an Army Veteran. They were brutalized by park ranger, Jeffrey Axner, in Akron Ohio. (Summit County) This can not be happening!?! Elderly, disabled and citizens of Akron for more than 50 years they have lived in the same home in Akron for all their married lives. Mary’s father wears a brace to protect his heart since an infection after open heart surgery caused him to have his breast bones removed. He was knocked to his knees and handcuffed behind his back for an hour and a half for the crime of honking his horn at a park ranger. This fraud also kicked Mary’s mother in the stomach, knocking her to the ground and handcuffed her as well. She laid on the ground, handcuffed and crying, shaking in fear while this monster threatened to mace her. Margaret is in frail health, having had two brain surgeries and a recent shoulder surgery. This could be your parents! If our country allows this kind of brutality to the old and frail, how are any of us safe?

Naturally, Carl and Margaret, who’ve never had a run-in with police before were terrified after this happened. They explained to FOX 8 that it was especially terrifying considering the fact that it happened in their own front yard.

Carl then had some choice words about this tyrant who he says should’ve never been given a badge.

“I wasn’t even in the park. The guy, he shouldn’t even be a dogcatcher, let alone in the park as a ranger,” Carl said.

For honking at the power tripping officer, the elderly couple was attacked and arrested. However, the charges were so glaringly false that the Summit Metro Parks released a statement noting they are going to be dropping them immediately.

Summit Metro Parks has placed a park ranger on paid administrative leave following an incident yesterday involving a senior couple in their vehicle. We have also requested that all charges brought against the couple after the incident be dropped immediately.

The incident began yesterday morning at the Newton Street entrance of Goodyear Heights Metro Park. The ranger pursued the couple’s vehicle to a residence on Darrow Road and handcuffed both individuals after an altercation. A backup ranger was summoned to the scene, and an Akron Police officer driving past the residence also stopped to offer assistance. The couple was charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of official business, aggravated menacing and failure to comply.

We are conducting an internal investigation of the incident and have also reached out to the couple to learn more about the matter from their perspective. We are asking the Akron Police Department to conduct a third-party review as well. We will cooperate fully with APD’s review.

We take this matter very seriously. Our rangers are commissioned peace officers who enforce the park district’s rules, regulations and other applicable laws to protect resources, keep visitors safe and maintain good order. We hold our rangers, and all of our employees, to a high standard of conduct. Even though this incident unfolded outside park boundaries, we expect them to live up to that standard. The public deserves no less.

As soon as we learned of this incident, we immediately placed the ranger on paid administrative leave and began our investigation, in keeping with Summit Metro Parks policies and procedures, and in keeping with our contract with the Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association (OPBA).

We will provide updated information as new developments occur.

The Wilsons told FOX 8 they are hiring an attorney so we can rest assured the taxpayers of Akron will pay for this insane cop’s behavior

“I don’t wish anything bad on him, but I think they should prosecute him so that he don’t act like that anymore and hurt someone else.”

Crazed Cop Admits to Setting Massive Wildfire Because He ‘Wanted to Feel the Excitement’

wildfirewildfire

Uintah County, UT — If you live in the western U.S., you know that every year much of the region is threatened by wildfires which can cause massive property damage as well as environmental destruction.

That didn’t stop former Utah Highway Patrol trooper Rex Richard Olsen from using a cigarette to intentionally start a fire on June 9 in Uintah County – “because he wanted to feel the excitement of it.”

He didn’t just flip a cigarette out of the window, but used a “burned cigarette and match combination…as a timed fuse.”

The fast-moving fire consumed more than 1,000 acres, prompted evacuations and caused $800,000 in damage, while threatening the lives of firefighters. Unbeknownst to Olsen, his supremely ignorant act was caught on tape.

The Utah Dept. of Public Safety began investigating Olsen on June 21 after reviewing video surveillance from a gas station. GPS data from Olsen’s patrol car was used to verify that the trooper was in the area when the fire started.

Olsen was fired July 1, and has since been charged with arson, a second-degree felony which can bring up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. He was also charged with a misdemeanor violation of Wildland Fire Protection.

Throughout the investigation, the Department of Public Safety has worked closely with investigators and will continue to do so,” said department spokeswoman Marissa Cote. “We regret when incidents happen involving our personnel which reflect negatively on our department.

Apparently, Olsen was so bored with his job that he decided to liven things up with a good old fashioned wildfire. His warped state of mind presumably went unnoticed during the pre-employment psychological evaluation.

As TFTP previously reported, Democratic Representative Lew Frederick appeared at a Portland town hall meeting and announced that he would like to see police officers undergo mental evaluations “once a year.”

“I want to have a regular psychological evaluation of every law enforcement officer,” Frederick said to the many people in attendance, who responded with cheers.

Frederick suggested mental evaluations for police officers from once a year to once every two years.

“Why is this such a high priority? One word: Ferguson,” Frederick said. Although Frederick cited the crazed cops caught on video during the Ferguson protests, we now have another reason other than Ferguson and it could’ve killed countless people and destroyed way more than it did. Apparently, this department had no idea that they had a deranged arsonist in thier midst — but a psych eval probably would’ve discovered it.

Fortunately, this cop is no longer in a position of authority, although the police union could very well challenge his firing, depending on the outcome of the trial.

A few days ago, we reported that one-fourth of fired cops get their jobs back, thanks to police unions that seize on procedural mistakes during the firing process to put bad cops back on the streets.

Considering the lives and property put in danger by Olsen’s act of arson, it should be a slam dunk case for the court system – but the blue wall of protection can be notoriously difficult to overcome. Often times, the same behavior that puts normal people in jail is excused when it’s done by cops.

Just this week, we reported that two cops who arrested people for drugs, stole those drugs and then sold them on the black market for their own profit will not see a single day in jail. Meanwhile, prisons are full of people who did nothing more than possess a plant deemed illegal by the State.

Crazed Minnesota Cop Assaults Man & Pleads NOT Guilty






lao

According to the criminal complaint, Worthington Police Officer Colby Palmersheim was driving his squad car when Promvongsa pulled up behind him “at a high rate of speed. Promvongsa was so close that Palmersheim could not see the hood of Promvongsa’s vehicle.”

The officer claims Promvongsa was attempting to pass him, so he moved over slightly, at which point Promvongsa swerved toward his car, says the report.

Palmersheim reported that Promvongsa continued to tailgate him, driving behind him at a fast rate, while sticking his hand out the window and making some type of motion. He claimed that Promvongsa then pulled up to Palmersheim, rolled down his window, and told the officer to “stay there as he was going to go get his boys and come back.”

A nearby police officer was aware, from prior contact with Promvongsa, that he didn’t have a driver’s license.

Agent Joe Joswiak of the Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force, a multi-jurisdictional task force that includes Worthington Police, eventually gave chase. He claims he turned on his squad’s emergency lights, but Promvongsa did not stop. Joswiak eventually made the arrest.

None of these allegations leading to Promvongsa’s arrest were captured in independent traffic camera or dash cam footage, says his attorney Ginny Barron. She says the complaint relies on the officers’ word alone.

“[Promvongsa’s] obviously plead not guilty and we intend to try it. He maintains his innocence,” Barron says. “What I can say is while I believe there are definitely a number of honorable police officers in the community who are highly respected, we are seeing increasing, systemic problems of excessive force in the Worthington Police Department, Nobles County Sheriff’s Office, and Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force that we don’t believe should ever be allowed or tolerated in a civilized society.”

VIDEO: Crazed Sheriff Attacks Innocent College Kid, Then Threatens Cop Who Stopped It

sheriffsheriff

Ellis County, TX — In April, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed into law a “Blue Lives Matter” bill which bumps up the penalty for striking an off-duty police officer from a potential misdemeanor to a felony. But the following story coming out of Texas serves to illustrate just how awful the law will likely be for those who find themselves in a scuffle with a cop after hours.

Ellis County Sheriff Johnny Brown, along with his brother Bobby, were celebrating his recent re-election this past New Years with a trip to a nearby Midlothian Whataburger. After allegedly pulling up too closely to another vehicle, words were exchanged with the driver and other occupants.

The heated argument led into the burger joint and escalated to a point where Bobby, the Sheriff’s brother, decided he’d had enough jaw jacking, and took a swing at 21-year-old Caleb Tomgenovich, initiating an attack which appeared one-sided. The brothers were on a rampage.

Seeing his brother Bobby hurting a fellow citizen, Sheriff Brown jumped right in, punching one of Tomgenovich’s friends in the face. After the melee, police arrived and broke it up, but not before Midlothian Police Officer Aaron Walters had a few critical words for the Sheriff.

Walters commanded Sheriff Brown to leave the restaurant and to stop trying to intimidate a female witness by standing over her.

Get out of the store right now! You don’t stand over her like that, and try to intimidate her!

After Brown left the burger joint, he didn’t go quietly. As he walked passed Walters he threatened him by saying, “If you worked for me, you’d be fired.” To which Walters fired back, “I don’t care who you are!. Stop trying to intimidate me!”

When apparent intimidation tactics didn’t work, Sheriff Brown then turned to insults. “You’re an arrogant little f**k is what you are!” He added, “And I hope that camera’s on!” Walters confidently reassured him, “Oh it is! It is!”

The attack, threats, intimidation, and insults all led the Midlothian Police Department to charge the two brothers with misdemeanor assault. In a plea deal with prosecutors, Sheriff Brown decided to resign and surrender his peace officer’s license, ending his law enforcement career.

The whole caught-on-camera incident serves to highlight potential problems states like Arizona will encounter when police officers get out of line while off-duty. Arguably, if it hadn’t been for the dashcam footage (which Sheriff Brown was so afraid of) the whole incident could have ended with the college students being charged with felony assault on a police officer.

Laws such as the so-called “Blue Lives Matter” legislation, albeit well-intentioned, effectively create a new and protected class of citizens; law enforcement. In an era where police officers are seldom disciplined, hardly ever charged with criminal activity, and who rarely serve any jail or prison time (even in the most egregious of cases) what America needs is stricter accountability, not special protection under the law.

From his perspective, Tomgenovich told reporters he’s pleased Sheriff Brown lost his job as Sheriff. He said not even his mother believed the Sheriff attacked him first, at least until she saw the footage for herself.

Unfortunately, we see these types of incidents daily at The Free Thought Project. And we’ll continue to serve as a police accountability site. To you, Officer Walters, who didn’t let the Sheriff’s status prevent you from doing your job; We salute you.

WATCH: Cops Hold Down Non-Violent Man as Crazed Cop Smashes in His Face

garlandgarland

Garland, TX — It’s never a good idea to challenge a police officer to a fight, mainly because they never seem to fight alone, and the penalties for hitting a police officer are severe. But for one intoxicated Texas man, the challenge to fight one officer succeeded and progressed to the longest suspension of any officer in Garland PD history.

Months ago, Noah Lofquis, 37, was drunk and disorderly at the Hyatt hotel. He was arrested and admits to “taunting” officer Donald Fernandez all the way to jail. But when Fernandez arrived, entered the jail, and took off Lofquis’ handcuffs, the officer attacked him, beating him and kneeing him in the face while two other officers held him down.

In a video recently obtained by the CBS Local News affiliate, the officers were caught on camera delivering the beatdown.

Even drunk, Lofquis says he knew better than to fight back. “It kind of seemed a little surreal at the time,” he said reflecting on the moment Fernandez grabbed him by the neck and started beating him in the face.

“I was sober enough at that point to know not to do anything because I didn’t want my situation to get any worse,” Lofquist told reporters.

The gang-style attack left him bruised and cut, with one gash in the back of his head requiring 10 staples to close. After getting medical attention, he spent a week in jail, surely contemplating his missteps in provoking the officer to wrath.

“I feel bad about the things I said… I wasn’t in my right mind at the time I was raised better than that,” Lofquist said. Even with his apparent regret, and instigation of the physical encounter, Officer Fernandez is not exculpable. In fact, he’s the one to blame for beating an inmate who appeared to be half his body weight.

For his crime, Fernandez was given a 56-day suspension, the longest such suspension in Garland PD history according to local news reports. Although it was not the case in Fernandez’ suspension, The Free Thought Project has reported on numerous occasions, many suspensions are usually with pay, meaning, in essence, officers are rewarded with a paid vacation while internal affairs determines whether or not the officer should be fired.

Such was not the case for Fernandez who was already facing another internal investigation separate from the one involving excessive use of force against Lofquist. According to the local Dallas-Ft. Worth CBS affiliate;

The officer disciplined for excessive force, resigned days after his unpaid suspension ended since he faced another unrelated internal affairs investigation. His partner received a written reprimand and a supervisor received a three day suspension.

At the time, the beating didn’t seem to faze those involved, with two of the officers reportedly bragging about the beat down dished out to Lofquist. The internal investigation revealed Fernandez and another officer were recorded as saying;

“I got him solid,” and “Yea I (expletive) clocked his ass good didn’t I?”

“This type of behavior is obviously unacceptable. The expectations of our officers is very clear to do what’s right,” says Pedro Barineau Garland PD spokesman.

Two other officers were also officially disciplined With Fernandez’ partner receiving a written suspension and his supervisor getting suspended for three days. Even though Lofquist admitted to taunting the officer, he wonders why he was not criminally charged for attacking him, saying he gives all cops a bad reputation.
