WEST HOLLYWOOD (Daily Wire) — The leader of an advocacy group demanding high-profile Democratic donor Ed Buck be charged with murder has partnered with a deep-pocketed civil rights group to amplify that call.
Los Angeles-based media strategist Jasmyne Cannick announced on Friday that she had joined forces with Color of Change, which describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.” It has led progressive digital campaigns targeting Glenn Beck , Facebook , and the reality television show COPS.
They collaborated to produce a web video launched late last week urging L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey to prosecute Buck, who is white, in connection to the deaths of two black men who overdosed on crystal meth inside his West Hollywood home 18 months apart. The passings brought attention to a dark side of gay culture that most politicians and LGBT leaders don’t like to discuss, such as the use of “party drugs” among gay men.
The video is more than ten minutes long, referring to Buck as a “serial predator.” It features Cannick and her attorney, Nana Gyamfi, both allies of Black Lives Matter who speak for an advocacy group called “Justice 4 Gemmel + All Of Ed Buck’s Victims.” The duo recounts their version of events, accusing Buck of administering the lethal doses of meth that killed both men.
“Ed Buck is that cruel, sadistic, slavemaster who knows that he has the power to do whatever he wants to do to black people,” said Gyamfi, an activist litigator who represents the mother of Gemmel Moore in a civil lawsuit. The 26-year-old sex worker was found dead in Buck’s apartment on July 27, 2017. Prosecutors announced last summer that the admissible evidence was insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Buck was responsible.
