San Diego State Drug Bust Tied To Fraternities

May 7, 2008

After what authorities are calling a major drug bust at San Diego State Univeristy, it has become clear that there were members of certain fraternities involved in supposedly openly dealing drugs on campus. The investigation was started last year with the cocaine overdose death of a sorority member ultimately lead to the arrest of 96 people of which 75 were San Diego State University students. Another drug-related death happened during the course of the investigation. Of the people arrested, 29 people were arrested during the early-morning Tuesday raids on nine locations including a fraternity, Theta Chi. Agents of the DEA found cocaine, ecstacy, and three guns. Of those arrested, 18 were wanted on warrants for selling to undercover agents. Theta Chi and five other fraternities have been suspended pending a hearing. This law enforcement investigation was dubbed, Operation Sudden Fall, as if the Drug War waas taking a page out of the book of Afghanistan.

There is speculation that profits may have been used in the financing of the fraternity.

Busted CSI Star Speaks About His Drug Arrest

May 4, 2008

Dourdan\'s Mugshot

If you missed the original story (the link at the bottom of this article), CSI star Gary Dourdan was arrested while passed out in his car in Palm Springs, CA. Found in the car with him was cocaine, ecstacy, and heroin. He was arrested promptly. Now, the CSI star speaks out about the event and what followed in an email to Access Hollywood. Here is an excerpt of that email:

“Obviously I certainly wish I hadn’t been responsible for so many people getting to the festival’s VIP area,” Dourdan wrote, referring to California’s annual Coachella music festival, which he regularly attends. “And the after party, it ran me ragged, but I’m glad pulling over did prevent a DUI. I recommend not driving at all, but a little kip (nap) is always good (on either side of the road.”

“I am blessed that the Sgt. realized that the luggage carrying whatever they found was not mine and that my tests have been coming back negative. I’ve been happy to cooperate in any way to clear myself and go on with my blessed life.”

Says Douchebag: “I am so sorry to all my fans, especially the young ones, like Taylor Swift, who I should’ve been supporting with my daughter instead of driving tired in the desert,” he wrote. “I am planning events to get the word out that you don’t need a bunch of nasty chemicals to have a good time. Just good friends, family, good music and a good honest spirit full of faith.”

No Ecstacy At This Rave in NYC

April 21, 2008

This past weekend, New Yorkers gathered in NYC’s boho Union Square park for a SILENT rave.

WTF????

No, it wasn’t a party for E-popping hearing-impaired.

More than 1,000 people showed up, danced in place and grooved to the tunes coming out of their own iPod headphones.

How post-modern!

The “mastermind” behind the silent rave was Jonnie Wesson a British exchange student.

Silent raves are popular in Europe, especially London, where he grew up, Wesson told the NY Times. “The basic premise is that a hundred or a thousand or a few thousand people all turn up in a public place, turn on their own headphones and dance. It’s always fantastic and weird to see thousands of people dancing silently. It’s always in a public space, but it’s not meant to cause disruption, but only because it’s the last place you’d expect that sort of thing.”

One of the largest such silent raves occurred in London in 2006 at Paddington Station, when 3,500 people turned up at the height of rush hour, 7:18 p.m.
