Pair arrested in torture

Man tells police he survived 7-hour ordeal

By CHRISTOPHER BOBBY Tribune Chronicle
POSTED: February 27, 2008



WARREN — A Leavittsburg man said after he was kidnapped and tortured for seven hours Sunday, he finally told his captors to kill him and get it over with.

‘‘I didn’t want to die. But after seven hours, I told them, ‘Just shoot me, dude,’’’ said Shane DeSmith of Riverview Drive N.W. ‘‘I asked for a phone so I could tell my kids that I love ’em.’’

Recovering at home Tuesday after nearly a day in the hospital, DeSmith, 25, says he feels lucky to be alive considering a blowtorch, grinder and sledgehammer were among instruments used against him.

The ordeal, he said, was over a $50 bag of marijuana that he was fronted and still owed.

DeSmith said he was walking along Porter Street N.E. when a father and son pulled up near him and ordered him at gunpoint into their pickup truck. DeSmith said he had flagged them down because he had the money but they told him it ‘‘wasn’t good enough.’’

Police detectives said DeSmith was taken to a home on South Street S.E. about 4:30 p.m. and tied to a yellow chair in the basement where the two men live.

Then — as if out of scene from a movie — one of the men called two friends to come over to watch or take part in the torture. DeSmith said the two visitors went by the nicknames ‘‘Finny’’ and ‘‘Huey.’’

‘‘I didn’t know what to expect when they pulled out a blowtorch,’’ he said.

Tied to a chair in a basement;

So you're saying the illegalization of marijuana has actually made people less safe?

When will you hippies realize- pot is bad because it's illegal. I really don't get what you pinkos don't get about that.

Not sure if you were going for sarcasm or not, but I'll respond.

There's an obvious demand. There's been a constant, steady demand for decades. Prohibition obviously isn't going to be the answer here.

When you use prohibition as your only answer all you do is place the job of supplier in the hands of the less ethical.

It's the same circular argument that seems to be going on for decades. Pot is "bad" is because its illegal, in other words it's principle badness comes from its illegality rather than the substance itself. And that's ridiculous. And I'm one of the demanders.

Of so many political issues, it unfortunately seems as though drug reform has fallen by the wayside and that is an important issue to me. I'm sorry but it is. And the only candidate who seems to have made mention of fixing this problem is He Whose Name Cannot Be Mentioned Here.

At this point it's like we're waiting for the Baby-Boomers to die off so we can actually talk about real issues.

Tip; Save your money to pay your dealer instead of getting more stupid fucking tatoos, oh and if you didn't fail piss tests you'd be remotely employable.

If this moron is looking for sympathy he's failing miserably, we have guys on the front in Afghanistan & Iraq and this fucktard expects empathy for his idiot situation, nice try fucktard.

Yeah no shit. I mean it isn't like oxycontin is legal. Oh wait it is and there are probably more people addicted to oxycontin than addicted to weed.
