the drug PCP

I'd say lock him up and prevent him from ever using drugs again so he can reflect on the damage he has done.

Poor little mite.

I'd never heard of PCP. A quick google came up with the fact that it's also known as Angel Dust or Killer Weed, is addictive and is known for inducing violent behaviour. Why, on why, would anyone choose to put that in their body?

But I can't pay attention 'Cause I'm on that dust!

PCP is a rather serious drug, all the more powerful because it is chemically-manufactured rather than growing at the bottom of the garden. I think I read somewhere that it also induces pyschosis among people who take it.

That, however, is irrelevant. Using "drug influence" as an excuse is a load of crxp. Like my colleagues here on JT, I am stunned by this story. If found guilty (lets give the guy due process), this chap should go down for a long, long time.

I did PCP/Angle dust when I was about 14. It's no joke. Thankfully, I only did it once and the only person I hurt was myself. To the poster above, I'll let you know this, its made from embalming fluid.. I got it from a friend whose dad worked as a mortician. I saw Manatee being eaten by a cat. I flew to Key West I though a mop was a girl.

Its no joke. This guy probably had no idea what he was doing and that will get him off the long stretch.

Its no joke, but Meth is just as bad and its everywhere.

" but Meth is just as bad and its everywhere."

I don't think there are many cases of meth-heads acting like nutters do on PCP. Certainly not to this extent.

Why the hell do people take these goddam substances when everyone knows the harm they cause?

The boy is crippled for life by his own father out of his skull on PCP trash. Dealers should serve life , one strike and your out, and this guy deserves execution, and i hope he gets it!

Don't know what your friend gave you, but it might not have been PCP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phencyclidine

Nasty incident, no need for misinformation.

I don’t care if he knew what he was doing at the time he attacked the child, he knew what he was doing when he took the PCP & that is good enough for me. There are times when a death sentence works, but this isn’t one of those times, this is a spend the rest of his life locked away to think about what he did. Maybe he could even have visits from his blind or partially blind son to help him remember what he did.

In this case I would support a 20 year sentence. If the PCP did not cause the incident, then the man is stark raving mad and dangerous. Only two choices there. But if he is insane and does this kind of stuff, I would lock him up for good.

I think this is the worst thing I've ever heard. It's like a horror movie.

This. If you choose to mess yourself up and bad things result, then tje liability is on you. "It was the beer/drugs" doesn't cut it.

What a wicked wicked man. That poor little boy will suffer every day of his life now.

His father should be locked up for life in the most horrid prison they can find.

"What a wicked wicked man"

The guy was on PCP. The PCP is what's wicked.

Never done it myself but I saw a young guy on PCP drive a forklift off the dock.

Here's hoping the poor child gets his eyesight back and the counseling he needs.

As for dad, 4' X 6' X 25 years - chance of parole seems fair to me.

All the more reason why this man is wicked since anyone who could obtain a destructive drug like this knows what it does. He needs to be put away for a long time. The only person whom I have sympathy for is the kid.

I just hope by the time this little kid grows up technology will have advanced so much that artificial eyes are possible.

PCP/Angel Dust - I remember hearing about that stuff when I was growing up. That is one dangerous drug.

Surely this can't be for real. This is horrific!

Let's get this correct. The drug has a factor here. But it's the individual.

I remember when PCP was the big thing in the 70s. I did it several times, but I never did anything inappropriate.

This is an unstable individual who would have done something or has and hasn't been arrested.

I'm not advocating that PCP is a great drug to be out, I'm saying that the man was an ass to begin with. The drug only aided him to do what he was capable of before the use of the drug.

I can't imagine a 4 year old boy going through this heinous act. Only 4 and he has to live his life knowing that his father mutilated him. It's just unbelieveable. < :-)

For those questioning the mind-altering power of PCP, it should be noted that after eating his son's eyes, the gentlement then tried to hack off his own legs with an axe. Yeah.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

While your all crying about the PCP why not look up who invented it and why.

Adaydream had it right, this guy was headed to hurt his son weather on drugs or what not, the drug didnt make him do it. I have done it usually not voluntary most mexican weed is laced with it.

Im sorry for the boys pain but this is just another day in america when you think the place is just about to the bottom someone finds another step down.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Ok this guy needs to be put away in a padded room place that will help him with his problems. This guy is a faukanut in the worst way man. I have heard and seen some crazy stuff in my years and this one just made the top ten! Maybe he should have aimed that axe at bit higher and done everyone a favor....

There is a reason for drug rehab centers, this man is certainly going to need that as well as deal with a prison sentance and the fact he mutilated his own child.

As for Aday and Dxxjp, there is one thing you need to know about drugs and the human body. Every person has a different metabolism, and drugs react to each metabolism differently, its not a one size fits all. Apparantly his chemical makeup isn't able to handle it, not to mention he shouldn't have been doing it in the first place.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

By any reasonable estimate, 'drug rehab centers' don't work.

It can take up to a dozen tries at 30,000 USD a whack before they get it right.

We can't afford these junkies' selfish self-centered behaviors.

Daddy doesn't need 'rehab'. Daddy requires prison.

I don't think it is accurate to say PCP only enhances the propensities of the user. It has been known to cause hallucinations and other strange things in people. This guy bit out the eyes of his son. Another rapper on PCP murdered a friend and ate her lungs. I think it is correct that these may have been violent folks to begin with, but there is no way these guys would have pulled this stuff without being on the drugs.

Do a Youtube search for PCP. There's a guy punching a hole in a fence, a guy rolling around making weird screaming noises, and other awesome stuff.

It can really mess up your head, depending on the person. It's hard to stop someone rampaging on PCP because they're amped up and don't feel any pain.
