Politician On Addicts: Let Them Die


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Dan Picard doesn't think addicts deserve conserving. Cenk Uygur as well as Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, talk about. Tell us exactly what you think in the remark section below.

" Under a plan by a city board member in Ohio, people who call 911 looking for assistance for someone that's overdosing on opioids might begin hearing something brand-new from dispatchers: "No.".

In action to the opioid epidemic that swept the nation– including the small city of Middletown, population 50,000– council participant Dan Picard has actually drifted an idea that has been called more of "a cry of disappointment" than a reputable remedy.

At a council conference last week, Picard proposed a three-strikes-style policy for people that repetitively overdose: Too many overdoses and authorities would not send a rescue to resuscitate them.

Picard informed The Washington Post that he offers consolation with any individual who has actually shed somebody to drug abuse, however stated that responding to an ever-increasing number of overdose calls intimidates to bleed his city completely dry.".

      We aren’t overpopulated. The only issue is population density. If more people moved to Wyoming or Nebraska instead of NYC or LA then it wouldn’t be an issue

    If they just dispensed naloxone at a needle exchange they’d save a ton of money on ambulances and hospital visits.

    • Posted by JordanGonzalez, at Reply

      Alyas Grey naloxone is a temporary measure. It doesn’t cure anything. And a person who has overdosed on drugs cannot give themselves naloxone anyway.

    • Posted by Recklesss 1990, at Reply

      JordanGonzalez No but friends and family can. And if they use it right away bc they already had it, then ambulances wouldn’t be called and *less* $ would be spent.

    TYT Logic: Demonize pain killers, promote crack cocaine and metamphetamine

      davidgomez79 Pain Killers tend to be worse than using Marijuana or coke as pain killers.
      Modern Pain Killers are truly the most addictive forms of the drugs they are based on.

      You understand natural selection doesn’t play in when you’re physiologically addicted, you’re not making an idiot choice to go back to hard drugs, once addicted it is a biological dependency. Also, ever seen heroine withdrawals? More reasons beyond biology as well for why addicts need help.

    Like all conservative assholes, he would have to have a loved one overdose more than three times to suddenly have an epiphany about being a decent human being.

    • Posted by jaelynn zee, at Reply

      So, you clearly don’t understand that most addicts are people with mental illness who are self-medicating? Also, that Veterans with PTSD were given narcotics by shady Drs., and they are allegedly committing suicide at a rate of 22 people a day. I”d be willing to bet that this was planned and they WANT Vets to die b/c they don’t want to pay for treatment!

      @ liam madden … I one off the top of my head that change the word in a major way where empathy changed the world in a major way, the invention of penicillin and how it was shared across nations during that time. I have others too, all in the medical field as well. Then i can always switch to non medical fields. Empathy changes everything, it creates collaboration and that creates growth.

    we need a (UBI) universal basic income for everyone without conditions… $2500 a month

    • Posted by Celephaith, at Reply

      Dread Pirate Lenny What area of Imaginationland is $10 an hour a living wage? Back in the mid 90’s (when cost of living was much lower) I was making $15 an hour and barely getting by. It is _retardedly_ insane to think anyone can make it on $10 an hour today. The cost of living along with inflation simply make this impossible.

    • Posted by Dan Ryan, at Reply

      Tax Payer Saying it isn’t going to make it happen. My point was that we can’t even get the government to mandate that level of income as a minimum wage for WORKING, you think they’re just going to give it to everyone? Put down the joint dude, it’s clouding your brain.

    • Posted by Tax Payer, at Reply

      Dan Ryan we got the money. the 20 trillion dollar debt is peanuts compared to the value of everything here. The United States with all it’s infrustrcture and buildings is worth 500 trillion.

      the question is : would you prefer dying in an underddveloped nation’s ER while waiting for care or get the “best” care…money can buy in USA and go bankrupt or be owned for the rest of your life (which they saved !) …Die a slave later ?
      As a US (legal) resident from abroad , without health insurance, I ask myself that question more frequently every day , these days !

    • Posted by dlee t, at Reply

      Call Uber or a taxi instead of an ambulance. If drugs or allergic shock are a risk, an epi pen from Canada or a shot of drug od antidote in the first aid kit would be worth it. Anaphylactic shock is relieved with a tube in your esophagus. Google the location and remember it or mark it with an X and “Insert pen cap here” with an arrow and an Uber number.

    • Posted by Xero Enigma Ⓥ, at Reply

      +nvm nvm Even here in the US you’ll probably have to wait 4 hours. I had my eye literally hanging partially out of socket and had to wait for 3 hours in the ER.

    How about making programs that save lives !! Like Suboxone clinics !! That help people and would still cost money !! But most with insurance cannot afford them ! They cost around 900 out of pocket per month !! Broke people or people with no insurance cannot afford that ! And most of the problems is doctors and pharmaceutical companies getting people addicted in the first place ! How about making big Pharma pay for these Rehabilitation programs !! That would save taxpayers and people’s lives !!!!!

    • Posted by amethystviolet dreams, at Reply

      Charles Ott Absolutely agree. I take suboxone and now have 3 and a half years clean. I used 2 to 4 grams of heroin, at the end of my active addiction, but used opiates every day for 7 years. Suboxone saved my life, but without my insurance, it would be $650 per month. Its criminal, how expensive these meds are

      as someone who has completely lost everything they own in a house fire, i can tell you that not only the fire department, but the cable company and every other company whose equipment may have been in your home when it burned, THEY ALL SEND YOU A BILL! you don’t get free emergency services just because you accidentally burn everything you love to the ground! do you think drug addicts whose only goal in life is to score more drugs are worried about paying back the state for emergency services? get real!

    • Posted by Melanie Jecker, at Reply

      sure, SOME people MIGHT get addicted to drugs they were prescribed, but as someone who grew up in a low class area with most people turning to drugs, i can tell you, these people, for the most part don’t get addicted after they are prescribed these drugs. they buy them on the street to get HIGH. they THEN go to doctors to try to get a prescription for them. they seek the drugs-these aren’t people who “waste” their money going to doctors when they’re actually sick-if they’re going to doctors, you damn well better believe they are getting something for their troubles. I’ve seen people struggle to breathe, needing their PRESCRIBED inhalers, but they won’t spend thei money on that, they go to the doctor that’s prescribing the xanax or the pain pills. every addict isn’t an innocent victim. some, sure, but most are seeking it out…

      Triage is going to be a reality: explicitly planned or implicitly forced is the choice! Ideally, triage needs to be cost+outcome based.
      Unfortunately, triage will be based on ones ability to spend. If you can buy your way, you can hog up the most critical resources and if you can’t afford to spend then even the simplest of treatments will be out of reach.

      Nobody in pain is going to be skeptical their doctor is lying to them or misinformed and even if you were skeptical you’d come crawling back to that doctor after a few hours of finding no relief for your chronic pain.

      We need to also remember the people who NEED to take them because of crippling pain due to severe injury and disorders. These people are lifers. They’re going to need to be on pain killers until they die. Lets hope we can start pushing medical marijuana legislation further on a national level for those who can have that as a viable option.

    • Posted by J. Wright, at Reply

      BlacKBastahD Don’t lie, you are happy to say that because you are too ignorant to know what this is about. These are not heroin addicts cranking up as you put it. These are regular people accidentally killing themselves and becoming addicted to pharmacutical opioids that irresponsible American doctors have been pushing like candy for some time now.
      This is a crisis created by doctors and the perscription drug industry. It is not about your classic heroin junky.
      I sincerely hope you have a very painfull accident or disease. Then you will find out what it is about. Then I suppose someone should come and kill you since that is what you think should happen.
      Seriously, pay attention before saying stupid pig headed things.
