SHAME ON THE POLICE

Harrodsburg, KY

#1 Mar 5, 2012
the supposed “raid” in Lexington last week. There you had 30 plainclothes policemen and the DEA as well as some extremely bored reporters who obviously had no real news to report on harassing patients. That is right patients. After all that media coverage and waste of tax payers’ money to pay these “authority figures” to do their jobs and fight actual crimes. Instead these policemen arrested 4 patients. 3 for old warrants, one for no car insurance and registration. WHAT? They did not arrest the staff or the Doctor the patients. If the doctor and staff where doing something wrong would not they have went to jail just like the person who did not have his car tagged yet???

How is that right in any way? It is not. It is sicking. I was so disgusted watching this treatment of ordinary people attempting to do what every person does in Lexington and that is seeing a doctor. Instead of being allowed to see their physician they were treated like criminals or terrorist. The police searched their vehicles and bodies.

They were up against walls like they had bombs; do you know what they had? They had appointment and medical insurance cards. Why? Because they were going to see their doctor. Why? Because they are injured and need care. They did not need to be plastered all over the news violated, searched, humiliated, then sent home and told your lucky we did not put you in jail for “NOT COMMITING A CRIME”.

SHAME ON YOU KENTUCKY 7 LEXINTON POLICE AND NEWS MEDIA FOR COVERING SUCH A VIOLOATION OF CIVIL LIBERITES. Do your jobs and fight real crime stop harassing patients at their physician office! There were rapes and murders you might have been able to prevent or solve if you did not waste 10 hours of your day.

There might be a violation here for disclosing patients and their conditions on the news. Might be worth looking into. Medical care is suppose to be kept confidential. The news is hardly that.

It's about time someone did something about these doctors or should I say dealers giving you pill heads your script just to keep you comming back for the monthly insurance bill , I'm sure there was more than enough proof that they were giving out pill to junkies and system users , I'm glad to see it , and hope to see more of it . If you only knew how many life's these places destroy. If someone was there and had real pain why would they care of someone saw them ? It's the drug heads and junkies who do not want to be seen or caught don't worry there's plenty more pill mills around town and I hope they get them all. GOOD JOB POLICE !!!!!!

Doctors and patients follow the law, there is nothing wrong with such clinics. Waiting for 2hrs in a doctors office to achieve the same results is a waste of everybodies time. If your so sure a law was broken, why no arrests? Sounds like fishing to me. And why is it when people seek meds they have to be a junkie. Pharmisudical companys exist to serve the needs of patients, not junkies. These meds are designed for a reason and if used properly, serve a vital function. However, if abuse is the case, and I am not saying it was, then by all means, bring in oversight or cops, I dont care. Pointing the dirty end of the stick neither proves nor changes the reason these places exist in the first place.

Did you ever wonder why no matter the topic, no matter the comment, there are those topix Gods that start with potty mouth comments, accusitory accusations, and think they have all the answers. I dont know why that is, for when I find a subject that interests me, I chime in, usually leaving out all the same stupid garbage. If you people dont want to talke about clinics, why are you even here? Save us all the trouble of wading through such idiotic crap and just "save it." Name calling to make any point demonstrates a lack of knowledge about a particular subject for starters and clearly demonstrates an immaturity. So, there you have it, "grow up." Oh, and who ever said that clinic depenses drugs in the first place. Many clinics to many things, drugs are just one of them.

Yes

Police act on tips many times which turn out to be false. I think the lack of arrests tells the story, dont you? Accusation and prove are worlds apart. Why dont we wait and see if some indictments are handed down, then we will both know for sure.
See what I mean

You talk as if no one lives in the real world. Everything you just said can be summed up in a word, duh! Unfortunately nothing was news to me. But you keep on bestowing your wisdom, I am sure somebody might get something out of it. I will not hold my breath though. It's you're smart, not your BTW.

So what are you? A true cancer patient? A junkie that's pissed they can't get their fix? A depressed troll just trying to start a fire? Just curious.
