More Money Located!

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to boost spending to combat opioid and heroin abuse — and license pharmaceutical representatives to prevent the over-prescription of opioids.

    A $700,000 investment in drug-treatment programs — a 50 percent increase over current funding — will be directed first to “opioid treatment deserts,” which have a disproportionate level of addiction and are largely concentrated on the West Side.
Seriously? "Opioid treatment deserts"? Who the fuck came up with that phrase? Working VRI, we've seen countless ambulances saving junkies with Narcan or similar injections. We've seen shooting galleries where the syringe is taped to the wall. Among the Medical District hospitals within a five mile radius of 012, they go through enough "opioid treatments" to float a boat.

All this money to save people who poison themselves and create massive crime and disorder issues.

Tell you what (and we've said this a dozen times here and elsewhere), it's a self solving problem if you leave it be - junkies OD, junkies die, property crime in these communities heads downward, and the dope trade dries up. And for the bleeding hearts who decry our cold-hearted attitude, we've personally known junkies and the havoc they wreak upon their families and friends is indescribable.

Wait a minute.

I thought recreational use of drugs was a personal choice for which people took full responsibility and in which the government had no business meddling.

Our own president believes selling drugs is not a crime, no matter how big a dealer you are: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2016/10/06/obama-commutes-xx-more-sentences/91685468/

What a sad commentary on these times we live in. Rahm Emmanuel wants to take care of the scum but not the police. Today the unsigned letters from the Department of Finance (apparently Finance Chairman & Alderman Ed Burke did not want his name associated with this) went out informing the police retirees that their city subsidize health insurance is ending on 31 Dec 16. The letter says Blue cross has three plans of you are Medicare eligible. You must make a decision between 15 Oct and 7 Dec 16. The letter says you should explore and compare all options before making a decision. But of course the city did not include any of the information on the plans or how much more you are going to pay. I figure in the future, with the way the city treats its employees and retirees, and the rate it's going now, the next letter will be the about the diminishment of the pensions!

I'm rewatching The Wire. Mid-season 3, a commander takes it on himself to create needle parks and chase the druggies into them. David Chase, to his credit, shows how it doesn't work. Animals just be animals and their shit just spills back into the rest of the city. The Bubbles of the world keep on stealing and robbing to support their habits.

Geneva Switzerland gave up on their Needle Park a long time ago.

Chase has a couple of youtube videos expounding on decriminalization but even he knows it isn't going to work with H and meth.

God help the residents of Chicago.

There's been a ton of studies that show treatments now and in the past do not work. The exception, the person being treated wants to quit and stop usage. Other then a person wanting to quit, the addict usually stops around the mid and late 40's, but starts on an alcoholic path. Take the money's and use it for something else, because it's a waste of time.

My theory: everyone should get one rehab stint, free of charge, and on the taxpayer dime. But after the first relapse, the jerk is put in front of a firing squad. And yes, I have addicts in my family. I'm done with all of them.

When addicts hear that a lot of people are checking out around a certain tip, they rush there before that good s__t run out.

Heroin, with fentanyl (100 times stronger) with maybe carfentanyl (100 times stronger than fentanyl, used to anaesthetize elephants)...the Chinese pharmas are pushing out carfentanyl at $2700/kilo, no questions asked. Just don't inhale a speck.

Hope you scobes out there are getting your money's worth.

Like the ants who suddenly come swarming up to the fourth floor, hang around five minutes, and then vanish just as quick when the population becomes unsustainable, this would be a self-limiting problem if it were left alone.

...and an old guy with a terrible neck/back sprain, who cannot even get out of the house right now, suffers like hell because of the lack of a few mild Norco tablets. Not even high-security fax-in prescriptions anymore, no refills ever, have to drag yourself to the doctor's, drag yourself to the pharmacy -- there to be greeted with vast suspicion, computer checks, Xerox your ID, etc., etc., etc.

I don't think we even have any O.T.C. Tylenol here...digging in the bottoms of drawers...

Something tells me we're going about this the wrong way.

It's the crackheads option to choose, high or die. Ghetto attrition applies to dope selling thugs as well.

For starters:

End the Sanctuary City refuge.
Actually put criminal drug sellers in jail and not release them (because drug dealing is not a violent crime).

The letter says Blue cross has three plans of you are Medicare eligible. You must make a decision between 15 Oct and 7 Dec 16.
===========
Employer provided health insurance almost always ends when you become eligible for medicare. Unless the City has an unusually generous plan for retirees, you pretty much have to go on medicare when you become eligible. So it is not like you are out anything that you would not have been out anyway.

What probably changed was the city subsidies for retirees who are not yet eligible for Medicare.

I know somebody will give me shit for this, but government should fund drug rehab centers for those who want it. As police most could give a shit less if addict live or die. But look at it from the police officers who have dealt with having children who are addicts. Many of us have lost our children to drug related deaths and suicide. For most, drug addiction is a disease. Many addicts suffer from depression or are bi-polar. They self medicate. There is no help for many who want to get treatment for the addiction and mental illness. The only places that are available for help without health insurance are the shitholes where they send court ordered programs, where these people have no intention of getting clean. Those who are there to try to get clean don't have a chance because all the court ordered assholes do everything to just start arguments. I along with other coppers have lost a child to drugs. Do I blame the addicts? No. I blame the courts, judges and legal system who instead of waging war on the dealers and suppliers, go after the addicts who are drawn in to drug use and can't get help. Even most cops go after the users for a court date. Addiction is a disease and it is hereditary. I have seen that first hand. So before you say fuck these junkies, let them die, some of them are the children or family members of your brothers and sisters in blue. Some may even be our fellow police officers. It doesn't just affect those who live in Englewood or Austin, it affects those in every walk of life. So maybe sometimes a little compassion is in order.

A hard working person with insurance who may be an alcoholic or addicted to some sort of narcotic, seeking to get help and get better.
Would run out of insurance very quickly and not be eligible for treatment after their insurance runs out. No one kicks on their first try. If your a uninsured junkie that hasn't contributed anything to society, you get all the try's you need.

Now IF the leadership of the FOP was not bought off they would rally every cop and all the other unions to turn out on Election Day.
