Ed Buck Funded Councilmembers Mostly Silent About Potential Homicides Of Democratic Mega-Donor

Ed Buck is finally showing back up in the news for the first time since roughly around the time that the Jussie Smollett story grabbed the attention of the media. It's ironic that a man who is likely responsible for the deaths of at least two gay, black men, has been able to skirt by in the meantime, but maybe it's just a case of the media having only so much room for concern with homosexuals of color.

As of about a week ago, during a protest outside of Ed Buck's home, KTLA reporter Kacey Montoya spoke with activist and investigative journalist Jasmyne Cannick who has been covering the Ed Buck case since the death of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore July of 2017.

To Get Away With Murder In LA: Another Dead Man In Ed Buck's House

Apart from a short piece in black activist outlet Blavity almost nothing has been written in the last seven days about the Ed Buck case. A Google news search for the past week brings back a couple of stories from January 29th and 30th at Blavity and WEHOville which covers news in the West Hollywood region.

It's interesting to note of the dozen or so news releases in the past seven day period, most of them only mention the Ed Buck case tangentially while referencing the alleged hate crime perpetrated against Empire actor Jussie Smollett.

Two of the last stories to directly mention Buck were written up in WeHoVille January 29th and 30th and dealt with a verbal altercation that occurred at the West Hollywood City Council Forum the night of the alleged attack on Smollett.

Jerome Kitchen, a friend of Gemmel Moore called out the candidates for their silence regarding the Ed Buck case.
As Jasmyne Cannick pointed out August of 2017, Councilmembers such as John D'Amico and John Duran as well as the Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Governor Jerry Brown, a Superior Court Judge and Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey all have received donations from Buck.

Los Angeles Blade, an LGBT news source, mentioned Jerome Kitchen on January 30th, but apart from that, there has been virtual radio silence for the past week since the Smollett story garnered the outrage and support of Hollywood elites and politicians alike.

Most recently, Monday night the 4th of February, West Seegmiller of Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP) pointed out that SWOP and Los Angeles LGBT centers and a coalition of 41 groups such as LGBTQ organizations, the National Black Justice Coalition and American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California demand that the Ed Buck case be investigated thoroughly.

The most recent death of Timothy Dean is especially puzzling considering his roommate and others who know him say he was not known to use any drugs at all. Councilmember Lindsey Horvath brought up a letter from Jasmyne Cannick explaining that there are several other young men who had been brought into Buck's residence for PnP ("party and play") and are willing to testify if granted partial immunity from prosecution. Apparently, no one from the Sheriff's Department has responded yet, but William Moulder, acting captain of the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station said that detectives were trying to reach out to those willing to offer any evidence or testimony. Moulder said that LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has promised a "thorough and objective" investigation into the deaths which is currently being conducted by the department's Homicide Bureau.
