"Man Dies After Eating Ounce of Cocaine Out Of Brother's Butt"

After eating an ounce of cocaine hidden in his brother's buttocks, a South Carolina man died soon after.

Deangelo Mitchell, 23, and his brother Wayne, 20, were in the back of a North Charleston Police Department cruiser on Nov. 30. The duo was being transported to jail when they began whispering about narcotics hidden inside the older sibling.

The Mitchells were arrested when a police officer found three small bags of cocaine underneath a rear seat of their 2001 Chrysler. It is evident in video footage that Deangelo Mitchell encouraged his younger brother to ingest the cocaine. The older Mitchell has a lengthy record and was concerned that he could face life in prison if convicted of a narcotics charge. "I can't get no more strikes," he told his brother.

He further directed his brother to "Eat that s***" and "Chew that s***."

In the footage, Wayne Mitchell can be seen, in handcuffs, reaching back to retrieve the cocaine from his brother. He then drops his head while he eats the cocaine.

Wayne Mitchell soon after began convulsing and bleeding from his mouth. "White powder residue" was found on the rear seat of the police cruiser, cops noted. Deangelo later said "he believed his brother swallowed an ounce of cocaine."

Wayne Mitchell died within an hour of ingesting the cocaine.

Deangelo Mitchell was initially charged with narcotics trafficking and was released from custody after posting $50,000 bond. But after a review of the police footage, authorities rearrested him Tuesday, charging him with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his brother's death Source:

This is not a story that we need to laugh at, it is a story that should make us appalled at the powerful grip this drug has on someone.  It is sad that a something like this happens in present day America. However it shows you the leadership that is in place gives the war on drugs so little attention. Obama would rather be in his Federal Cadillac flying city to city, state to state pandering for another four years of being America's illegitimate President.  

I do not know the background of this kid, I am sure he has parents, who are mourning a lose. However it does not take away from the EVIL Grip that the drugs possess on someone. Some the hold allure is the fast money and the fast life, that at some point comes tumbling down on your head, if you don't believe me, just ask Sam Hurd. He had it all, a promising NFL career, and now he awaits trial, a trial that will determine the reminder of his life.  The other reason is the terrible addiction that cocaine has...over ones body.
