Meet 22-year-old Michael Terron Daniel of Waco, Texas. On June 24, 2012, police were dispatched to a home in Waco after a man called 911 to report that another man living there was "going crazy". The other man was later identified as Daniel. According to housemates, Daniel told them he was "on a bad trip" after taking the synthetic drug K-2 and then he began attacking them. K-2 is also known as Spice and is a blend of herbs and spices that is usually sprayed with a compound similar to THC which is found naturally in marijuana. Some side effects of Spice include paranoia, panic attacks, giddiness and violence.
After attacking housemates inside the home, Daniel ventured outside where he assaulted another man who lived there and soon turned on a neighbor who tried to intervene. According to witnesses, Daniel got down on all fours and began to bark and growl like a dog, chasing the neighbor who found refuge in his own home. Apparently, the animalistic behavior triggered something in Daniel because he turned his anger towards the pet of one of his housemates, a spaniel mix, and began choking and beating the dog. Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, of the Waco Police Department, said Daniel then "took a bite out of the dog, ripping pieces of flesh and eating them".
When police arrived at the home, Daniel was sitting on the front porch with the dog's lifeless body on his lap. Swanton said there was blood and fur around Daniel's mouth and blood and fur on his clothing. He said Daniel's appeared to be in a daze at first, but snapped out of it and asked officers to "tase him or fight him to snap him out of the 'bad trip'". Officers declined and Daniel was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released. On Monday, June 25, Daniel was arrested at his job and charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal, which is a felony. His housemates refused to press charges against him and he is currently being held on $6,000 bond at the McLennan County Jail. Sgt. Swanton revealed that Daniel has been in trouble before, but wouldn't discuss the charges.
I just have one question: Why is it that when these people are under the influence of these synthetic drugs, their first instinct is to eat something/body? My uncle swears its a ploy by the gub'ment to weed out us humans. What do you think? I would love to read your feedback.
