Whatever Happened to the Bad Heroin?

Nothing. It's still out there. Lots of it is still out there.

A month or two ago, the Feds announced that they had made arrests with the assistance of Mexican authorities and shut down a "suspected" fentanyl plant in Mexico that may have been supplying tainted heroin to drug cartels. NAGIS formed a "Fentanyl Taskforce" and numerous teams were deployed to interview surviving addicts and even a single "high ranking" dope dealer was arrested and touted as a "main supplier" of the bad dope.

And the reality? Coppers on the West Side tell us ambulances are still picking up between 3 and 7 overdoses a week. Coppers down South tell us they still find almost a body a week that is attributed to fentanyl heroin. But since it isn't happening in noticeable droves, it's ignored. Or at least in the background where it should have been all along anyway. It seems our mantra of "Who cares if a junkie dies?" was just a little bit ahead of the curve. The media certainly hasn't seen fit to mention it until there were four at once down south. The people overdosing are shorting other productive citizens their ambulance service and police service. The story should have been the drain these knuckleheads are putting on the system - not the "tragedy" of their poor choices.

It's still out there. The lab reports show Fentanyl regularly.

Maybe the gangsters finally figured out how to cut it without having to test it on a guinea pig looking for his wake-up bag.

The only people who care about this are the junkies, the media, nd by the force of the media the politicians.

Who really cares how many of these useless dregs of society die. They do nothing but consume valuable tax dollars and oxygen.

"Bad heroin" is that an oxymoron?

How about "Good heroin," is there such a thing?

Cynthia White is the Acting D/c of 005, not the permanent one yet. She was the Captain on days, and has seniority on the other captains, so protocol says she should be the one to fill in temporarily. Unless there was a strong operational reason to not make her the actor, it would have been a big slap in the face to not make her the person. Time will tell who the permanent person will be, and the above mentioned protocol does not come into play when determining the permanent commander.

We should be opening up the doors to ERPS and allowing any shit bag who want to use heroin have at it. If they die well then we dont have to watch our tax dollars and clear air get consumed. Thank you ans have a nice day:)
