In South Carolina, police are reporting that 20-year-old Wayne Mitchell died after being forced to ingest cocaine that was hidden in his brother’s ass. Both Wayne and DeAngelo Mitchell were held in the patrol vehicle while police searched their car for drugs after allegations made them aware of the situation. In the video, you can see the exchange happening which led to Wayne Mitchell’s death.
In the backseat of the vehicle, DeAngelo, 23, had convinced younger brother Wayne to ingest an ounce of cocaine in trying to get rid of the evidence.
“One of us gotta do it,” DeAngelo told his brother. “You the only one that don’t have no strikes… You my lil’ brother… I’m gonna get life… You gonna unwrap it? Want me to hand you it?”
Wayne swallowed the cocaine at his brother’s request and said, ‘I love you, bro.”
About an hour after the drugs were in his system, Wayne collapsed and died. DeAngelo is now being charged with involuntary manslaughter due to his brother’s death. He had many previous drug convictions and seeing as this, too, was related to drugs, there is a possibility that he will be going away for some time. Sadly, he no longer has a brother to come visit him in prison.
I don’t know why DeAngelo thought it would be better for Wayne to ingest an ounce of cocaine then have him receive a smaller drug charge on his record. If you never had that amount of drugs on you, then this would have never been a problem. Unfortunately, DeAngelo hadn’t learnt anything from his earlier drug convictions.

To say you’re shocked to hear this verdict, would be ridiculous. Conrad Murray was administering drugs that are not made for consumption while at home.
Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor handed the case to the seven-man, five-woman jury Thursday after closing arguments by prosecutor David Walgren and lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff. Over nearly six weeks of testimony, jurors heard from 33 prosecution witnesses and 16 defense witnesses. More than 340 exhibits were available in the jury room as the panel mulled a verdict.
Jackson, 50, died on June 25, 2009, of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol, aggravated by effects of the sedative lorazepam. Murray, 58, was charged with a single count of involuntary manslaughter. He pleaded not guilty.
So I know I’m going to royally piss quite a few of you off, but I feel this is my blog and I can voice my opinion as I choose. Michael Jackson may or may not be guilty of the child molestation claims, but personally, I feel it isn’t that far-fetched. While the man did make some amazing music and was a highly talented artist, I feel due to his childhood problems, he himself was a sick man. Sadly, I blame his upbringing on this, but seeing as he was 50-years-old when he died, he was an adult and I believe his actions reflected the life of a mature, sick child.
Seeing as he had more money than imaginable at one point, he would be willing to spend lavishly. This spending included paying off people to do things for him that were sometimes illegal; Conrad Murray falls into this category. If he didn’t administer the propofol to Mr. Jackson, somebody would have likely agreed to do the job and get paid the money. Yes, he was being a bit negligent and for that I believe he deserves to be punished. I agree with the verdict, but felt I must voice my opinion into the entire matter while I had the chance.
Point being, if you’re asked to do something illegal by someone who is rich and had a shitty childhood, DON’T DO IT! The money is not worth it, especially if you’re convicted of manslaughter.
