That's funny, it's not a mistake or an accident. It's a decision. A leader would be someone strong enough to not give in to such a bottom of the barrel situation and say "hey, this is wrong". It doesn't matter what he did, he's now another statistic. Sorry. A great father of setting an example of being an addict, awesome. That's my two CENTS. I don't have an ignorant opinion, I just hate druggies and addicts, period. Maybe you can't comprehend that looking through rose tinted glasses. As far as I'm concerned, he was part of a mess that's bringing this town and it's people down. Truth hurts.
You are a piece of shit. He was a great father, always doing anything he could for junior...he was too young to know anything and it was never done around him..so it set no example at all. You do have an ignorant opinion as in uneducated because you obviously know nothing about the subject I was talking about..If you had a close family member that was an addict, you would never "hate" them..trust me on that...and if you did, that just proves my point even more that you are literally a piece of shit. Nothing is sugar coated for me. I know what he did was wrong, and in the end it was a decision. I'm not stupid..I was simply stating the fact to another person (not you) that he was not influenced by anyone. You wanted to chime in and be the crappy person you are that's fine..This town's people are also being brought down by people like you who insist on drama. I am done with this, you obviously have nothing better to do than sit at home on a computer and try to mess with people's lives. Get a life of your own.

I do not understand or I missed something but how can a person be sentenced to 12 years in jail and be able to get out in 4.5 to 5.0 years? It appears to me that this young man was never educated by his parents in issues of what is right and what is wrong. He just did whatever he wanted to do and the hell with his parents and/or brothers. Perhaps he will learn that being a possible contributor to the deaths of at least two people & getting numerous others hooked on different illegal drugs does not make him a man - it makes him a coward!! Yes, I hope he works to change himself while he is in jail;
however, he should be made to serve at least 3/4 of his sentence. Anything less then good behavior should result in all 12 years.

You wrong!
Yeah its called work release dumbass, And i can tell you’ve never seen a prison up state they would come out n go right back in you go up state your never the same its the truth. Now before i cut the brakes on that piece of shit truck you drive around Larry keep your hole shut! 5 years of probation is the best thing that could have happened should be 10 years if you ask me, that will help insure that they wont go back to drugs and steeling to support there habbit

First off, I'll start by offering my condolences to those of you who have lost children and family members to opiates and other drugs.

Now for the rest... A little about me if you don't mind.

First and foremost I am a productive member of society (by society's meager standards anyway).

I have a 50-60hr work week (comp time is a nice addition to vacation), I pay my taxes, have never been on welfare, and I do a lot of charity work as well as give back to the community.

I live an hour or so east from where all of this has happened

If I passed you on the street, you would nod your head, smile at me, and ask me how my day was going.

You would never guess that I was an opiate addict. Not all addicts steal, rape, and pillage the towns people. Addiction is a horrible thing, it's filled with poor decision making, a high mortality rate, and it is a remarkably hard thing to overcome.

Drugs and addiction are hard pills to swallow and it's victims are ever present. Please know that I don't condone anything that's been done by this gentleman, but I do know that we are responsible for our own choices and decisions.

This includes those that sell drugs as well as those that do them. I've been on all kinds of drugs throughout my life and nobody ever forced me to do them. They were available and I wanted to try them.
No I know that some of you might not understand this urge or desire to do "drugs", just like I don't understand why people jump out of planes or hurt themselves relentlessly like the guys in the jackass movies.

But they do it, and they enjoy it so who am I to judge them, just because I don't understand why they do it.

Now my situation is a little different than most, but isn't everyone's story a little different?
I don't do heroin (mostly because I don't know where to find it) and I get my "drugs" legally because it just worked out that way and I'm not the kind of guy that can walk down the popular drug streets and just "order" drugs.

Even so, people make choices and in doing so, they agree to live or die with the consequences of their actions.

Now their intentions might not be to get caught or die, but when you do drugs you know that "it" (the fun) will be short lived and then you must open "the door" and choose your path.

Casting judgment on one person for another persons choice is just plain wrong.

If all of your life someone told you not to walk on broken glass because your feet would get cut and you did it anyway, would you sue the company that made the glass? Would you seek to destroy the person who broke the glass that you walked on?

Of course you wouldn't, it was your fault!!(Now some of you might, but you're a different breed and blame everyone else for your own mistakes. So you don't count!)

You can't blame one person for the choice of another.

In the world of addicts we all make our choice to start, and it isn't until we are in too deep that we realize there is no way out. But I can't blame anyone else, because the choice was mine all along.

My heart goes out to all of the people that have lost loved ones to this terrible problem. The choice your loved one made came at a terrible price and should serve as an example to all of those who have this choice ahead of them.

In the last year and a half, I have been to several doctors, inquired about treatment, joined several programs, and none of them have helped.

I consider myself to be a realist. I am well educated, I have moral standards, I set and complete goals, and above all I am a considerate human and give back where and when I can.

I have a strong will and have on most occasions held my ground and beaten every odd stacked against me. I don't blame the world for my problems, nor do I believe that I am owed something in this this life.

I work for everything I have and have had, I have never taken from someone or from the system.

But I am an addict and to most of you that makes me a lowlife regardless of what I have done or will do.

Not doing everything right all the time has little to nothing to do with being a junkie. Everyone makes mistakes, everyone that makes mistakes aren't losers. Junkie gutter trash ARE losers. That is a simple concept, sorry you don't understand it.

Maybe you don't understand how (mainlining)heroin works. The first time you do it, you are a junkie or are going to be. Just how it is. You don't OD the first time you do it. You NEED more. You keep doing it until you eventually do OD. This is not experimenting. This is being a drug addicted loser. Selling it is not experimenting, it's being a loser. Getting other people hooked on it so you sell more so you can get more yourself is being a loser. Stop grasping at straws trying to defend the bane of our society as is at this time. Everyone that does it, deserves their impending OD. Might not be a month from now or 10 years but it will eventually happen. Until you end up in jail and have no choice but to quit. Sad reality it's either jail, intense rehab or death. It makes me sick how so many people pass off this most dangerous of all drugs as "experimenting, making mistakes" etc. Stop making excuses.
