Drug Dealer Sets Crackhead On Fire

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 38-year-old city man admitted he doused a woman with lighter fluid and set her aflame after she complained that he was selling fake crack cocaineKevin Boone pleaded guilty Thursday to first-degree assault during a court appearance in front of Schenectady County Judge Karen Drago.


The 40-year-old woman suffered burns to her back, shoulder and one side of her face. She underwent surgery at Westchester Medical Center and made a full recovery, Assistant District Attorney Bill Sanderson said." Times Union  

Street drugs aren`t approved by the FDA, and if a drug dealer sells you fake crack, or crack that is contaminated with dangerous chemicals, you don`t have any recourse. You can`t sue him, and you can`t complain to the Better Business Bureau. Even if a dealer sells you pure crack that hasn`t been diluted with dangerous substances, crack is a dangerous drug that will eventually destroy you.

Only a fool buys crack, and only a fool will complain to others if he was sold fake crack. Drug dealers don`t abide by ethical business practices, and they won`t hesitate to maim or kill a crackhead who speaks ill of the product he is selling. Hopefully after her horrific ordeal the crack head lady will come to her senses, and once she is released from the hospital she will go straight to rehab.
