Prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house, with prosecutors calling him a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness.
Buck was charged with one count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorneys office. Buck is accused of injecting a 37-year-old man, who overdosed but survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.
That latest incident comes after two men were found dead in his Laurel Avenue apartment in Hollywood. In both cases, African American men Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55 had overdosed on methamphetamine inside. After the first death in 2017, authorities said there was insufficient evidence to file charges.
With this new evidence, I authorized the filing of criminal charges against Ed Buck, Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said in a statement, adding that she is deeply concerned for those whose life circumstances make them vulnerable to predators.

HERE’S YOUR REAL GUILT BY ASSOCIATION FOR THE DEMS! They never tire of criticizing Trump because far right groups like him. Well, guys like Buck like the Dems, and the Democratic Party is never skewered because the Fake News Media is in bed with them.
Had to send Adam a note:
Your buddy Ed Buck is in trouble for running a drug house and abusing down and out homosexuals/LGBTs and others....
Can’t prove you’re part of it but surely can’t exonerate you either....
The infamous “I got suckered” incident.
In 2017, after the first death, authorities said there was insufficient evidence to file charges.....and besides "he didnt really mean to."
He’ll get a framed citation from City Hall for his ingenious approach to helping LA with it’s homeless problem.
Yes, its all about the intent. No reasonable prosecutor would bring charges.
Depraved homosexual. But I repeat myself.
You mean two murders and 1 attempted murder.
I guess black lives dont matter when a queer Democrat has his perverted ways with them.
Thats BWAWNEY frank
One, he’s gay.
Two, he’s a big demonrat donor.
That’s two get out of jail free cards.
Can someone start making noise about this in the #Blexit community?
This predators name has been in the news way too much and only now will they “go after” him. If this last guy had OD’d and been carried out in a bodybag, nothing would happen to Buck. I guess the 2-tiered justice system isn’t only for democratic politicians.
I’m sure democrats will give the money back now that they know... /s
