Ah, c’mon. Drugs are a victimless crime - or so we’ve been told over and over and over again by libertarians.
The same libertarians who told me over and over again they might not agree with what I say, but they will defend to the death my right to say it.
Haven’t seen any of these 1A guys and gals in, oh, about 5 years.

This is why I’m against first responders reviving these junkies who OD on heroin. Let them succumb to the death they’ve brought upon themselves. These people are lost to humanity and civilization.

Cases such as this shouldn’t have just the death penalty. It should have an entertaining death penalty.

This is very sad, and I hope the Vet has family who will pay more attention in the future. I also hope he will move to a safer neighborhood. Perhaps he could get more police alertness if he lived next to a doughnut shop?

Better get that one right, no matter which way it turns out.

I am not sure what is sadder, this domestic slavery incident, or that the only thing anyone can do is seethe.
