Agreed.
If drugs were involved, people need to remember that NOBODY wants to be an addict.

Sure, people make bad choices and pay for them, but I’ve long dispelled with pleasure from the pains of others.

I read on another thread just today, that Jeffrey C. was somehow tied into the investigation of obama’s birth certificate, being conducted by Arpio’s posse.

Details surrounding Jeffrey Corzine’s death aren’t immediately known. According to a source, the younger Corzine had been working as a drug counselor at a well-known Malibu, Calif., treatment facility. He himself had struggled with substance abuse in the past but was believed to be sober, the source said.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/jeffrey-corzine-youngest-son-new-jersey-gov-jon-corzine-died-article-1.1720797#ixzz2vscUW66b

He had pulled his life together and was doing well. It’s very sad,” the source said.

Corzine had been working as a drug counselor at Promises, a well-known drug treatment facility in Malibu, and was also an aspiring photographer.

Corzine, the youngest of the three children the former politician had with ex-wife Joanne Corzine, was a frequent presence during his father’s successful campaigns for governor and lovingly stuck by his dad’s side after he was badly injured in a 2007 car wreck.

Don’t care for Corzine, but I’m sorry he lost his son; do not wish that pain on anyone.

I don't take pleasure in the pain of others, and I work in an area where you can see people's lives just slip away in their 20's to drugs, no matter how many rehabs and counseling sessions they go to....its very sad and tragic...

however, it all starts with brushing with danger and chaos...that's the first mistake....some people can not recover...

as far as this young man goes, it is sad.....but for his father, its a great example of somebody having it all....power....all the money...the immunity to any consequences....except the most important one....your own children....lost.....

karma or something...a very teachable moment in humility I guess.

...but he may have been harmed by the father's parenting values. Jon Senior is a major jerk. He shifted risk onto clients to build up his ego for a second run as a financial swinging dick. I suspect his personal life suffers the same morality flaws as his public, financial life.

I know many people, who use recreationally, who laugh at the prospect of become addicted. However, I know of no addict who doesn’t regret having experimented.

“Promises, a well-known drug treatment “

Yes...

Promises Rehab: Where the Stars Go to Get Sober

Dorm like rooms, shared bathrooms, 6:45 a.m. wakeup calls: it’s not boot camp, it’s rehab at Promises Treatment Center, where celebrities including Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Robert Downey Jr. have come seeking treatment for substance abuse. ABCNews.com recently toured the grounds of Promises’ centers in Malibu and Los Angeles, Calif. to get a sense of how celebrities undergo rehab. Pictured here, the main house of the Malibu facility.

Well, I wouldn’t want to repay the father by wishing ill on the family.

Restitution from Corzine’s fat bank account to the MF Global investors, combined with a jail sentence and a ban from all future securities industry work would have been enough for me, especially if it had happened in a timely manner.

No one wants to be an alcoholic either. I didn’t. Twenty-four years sober I still don’t. It’s still out there. I’m sober today but for the grace of God and AA. Sorry for Mr. Corzine’s loss. If drugs or alcohol were involved the sad reality is some make it and some don’t. Rigorous personal honesty insures one will make it, if one can be that honest. He’s beyond any more hurt now.

"It’s the mother who I feel for!"

Me too. No mother should have to bury her son. Poor woman was married to an a$$hole who publicly humiliated her, and dumped her after 33 years of marriage. Remember the half-a-million mortgage loan he gave his then girlfriend, union head, Carla Katz? He later forgave the loan,and paid the gift tax she would have had to pay on it. Katz was the President of the union that represents NJ State employees.

Too bad the results of drug use aren’t viewed by most as the equivalent of driving over a cliff, or ramming into a tree at 100 mph. Nobody would do those things even once, “just to experiment”, but only if he had a death wish (or was on drugs).

Drugs are like voting demoncrat. Lots of others are doing it, it makes big promises and gives out rewards, and any destructive long-term effects are lies made up by uptight people out to ruin a perfectly good time.
