I grew up with 95% of the ppl in that movie. First of all, I'm not defending them. But I played tee-ball with a few of them. Was in kindergarten with some. Was close friends to the older sister, of one of the girls, in the movies. Remember that girl in the movie, as a young sweet kid. Now she's prostituting for drugs. They are my generation. I'm 27. It's very disheartening. I do hope the town get whatever help is nessecary. Literally don't care what irrational or violent act it takes to ride the drug problem. Oh yea I HEARD!!! Dono if its true, the sheriff pedals drugs. THE SHERIFF PEDALS DRUGS!!! What's oceanas problem??? Say it with me.... THE SHERIFF PEDALS DRUGS!!! Good...

This started with the parents. Yes they were scum first, and didn't teach or raise their children with any morals. The one blonde said, " I had a great childhood" " I had anything I wanted". That was the biggest lie in the documentary. Those kids never had anything, lived in the basement of there home, cause the house itself was unfinished, and they used a child's potty for a bathroom. Right there in the middle of the room. They had lice all through school, always being sent home, yr after yr. And the father stuff is and always was true, one can only assume why he doesn't work in mines anymore. BUT he does work at Walkers Down in town. OMG! So ya you people go ahead and take your cars down there and help a brother out. That's why this town, and country is falling apart, no one will take a stand, and we turn our heads. It seems like if you dishonest or an addict , your popular , well stop acting like its nothing

I agree with the previous post, in that everyone turns a blind eye. It is because, its ALOT of ppl in that town, that IS addicted, so the non addicted know some one who is addicted, and they just want that person to be happy. But being an enabler, is NOT helping them find happiness. ALL addicts describe the addiction as the devil. They hate it. So enabling them, enables the devil that they fight with. They will not win alone. They will end up dead, against that particular devil, when fighting alone. Personally, I'd send them to a camp, where they be tied down most of the time, and force fed, and kept alive by true doctors, not enabling doctors. Cause if the addiction is strong enough, the cleansing phase can be deadly alone, simply due to the body relying on it to function. Any person sticking needles in their arms, already has that powerful of addiction. Death after a week without it, if proper medical care isn't there. But, do not overlook the counter problem: the police officers, and local court system, look away. If an honest cop does get someone, their back on the streets soon after, to continue chasing death. It's self destructive, really...
