|Sadly everyone survived, but the biggest dolts were emergency services and city government, and the victims were the taxpayers.|
(DUMBSHITVILLE, CT) — As many as 46 people overdosed in the city in 24 hours — many on the Green Wednesday — as emergency crews raced to save lives and one man was arrested as a “person of interest” in the case, police said Wednesday.
The man, whom investigators identified only as a person “believed to be connected to at least some of the overdoses,” was found in possession of drugs, police said. The man was out on parole when he was arrested Wednesday and is “known” to police, Police Chief Anthony Campbell said.
As many as 39 people have overdosed since Tuesday evening from what is believed to be the synthetic cannabinoid K2 laced with Fentanyl, officials said. At least 24 overdoses were reported on the Green Wednesday, Fire Chief John Alston said. He said 34 people were taken to the hospital citywide and five refused treatment.Sorry, boys and girls, and no offense to local EMS, but that isn't "saving lives", it's thwarting Darwinism.
CT hasn't legalized pot, let alone synthetic pot laced with (probably) carfentanil.
But let's go more libertarian here.
They took the drugs, let them solve the problems afterwards. If that includes offering themselves as a sacrifice to Fate, so be it.
Otherwise, you're just incentivizing misbehavior, after robbing taxpayers to do it.
That's immoral, criminal, and evil, simultaneously.
Notice there are never any large "L" Libertarians lurking around to decry the state stepping in to rescue the feckless and stupid from themselves, which shows you, yet again, that Libertarianism is merely sparse philosophical cover for people who want to get stoned (like that was ever in doubt since...ever.) They'll doubtless find time to show up to yammer about the injustice of arresting the dealer though, count on it.
The biggest tragedy for society in this case was EMS even showing up.
And it isn't as if the lefty loons there are going to charge anybody, either criminally, or financially, for what their stupidity cost the taxpayers.
So clearly, the state there is merely the expediters for illicit drug dealers and their wastrel clientele, in case anyone needed any further proof, after watching the same spectacle from coast to coast, for decades.
If actual justice and common sense were involved, the dealer would be looking at 39 counts of attempted murder, and possession and distribution of a controlled substance, facing LWOP (since CT is probably "too civilized" to give him the fine public hanging he deserves), and the "victims" would all be sentenced to working off their EMS and hospital bills on a literal chain gang, shoveling hot tar all summer, and snow all winter, by hand, from dawn to dusk, for the 2-3 years it would take at the average 30-something-cents/hr inmates "earn" in custody. If they were forced to do that time, I'd spot them the costs of room and board, eating green bologna sandwiches, in striped jumpsuits and pink underwear, and living in tents behind the county jail year around.
