The Meth-Driven life


So I gave him some crank. It worked, OK
Hostage Gave Meth to Atlanta Fugitive

By GREG BLUESTEIN, Associated Press Writer 22 minutes ago

ATLANTA - Ashley Smith, the woman who says she persuaded suspected courthouse gunman Brian Nichols to release her by talking about her faith, discloses in a new book that she gave him methamphetamine during the hostage ordeal.

Smith did not share that detail with authorities at the time. But investigators said she came clean about the drugs when they interviewed her months later. They said they have no plans to charge her with drug possession.

In her book, "Unlikely Angel," released Tuesday, Smith says Nichols had her bound on her bed with masking tape and an extension cord. She says he asked for marijuana, but she did not have any, and she dug into her illegal stash of crystal meth instead.

Smith, a 27-year-old widowed mother who gained widespread praise for her level-headedness, says the seven-hour hostage ordeal in March led to the realization that she was a drug addict, and she says she has not used drugs since the night before she was taken captive.

...................

"It's hard for people to understand the miracle of the story," she told the newspaper. "This was totally a God thing, to me in my life. This was God getting my attention, going, `I'm going to give you one more chance.'"
....................

Smith says in her book that as the night wore on — after Nichols had snorted some of Smith's meth — she tried to win Nichols' trust by talking about her faith in God and relating to him her personal stories.

She says she told him how her husband had died in her arms four years earlier after being stabbed during a brawl.

She writes that she asked Nichols if he wanted to see the danger of drugs and lifted up her tank top several inches to reveal a five-inch scar down the center of her torso — the aftermath of a car wreck caused by drug-induced psychosis. She says she let go of the steering wheel when she heard a voice saying, "Let go and let God.
"


So, I guess the Purpose-Driven Life goes best with a little crank.

She was prattling on about how she talked to him about Jesus, instead, she gave an unstable man fucking meth.

Jesus Christ, if she was black, people would rip her a new asshole. She was a stone junkie, and people were making her out to be some kind of missionary. How she calmed the crazy negro down and shit like that. Instead, she gave him crank. Yeah, exactly what a crazy person needs. I wonder if she thanked the guy in his trailer full of chemicals for the meth like she did Rick Warren.
