I was suprised to see in the Kalamazoo Gazette the newly released information about Heroin addicts dying. I myself know of more than 6 addicts that passed within the last two years, who were family and friends. The real issue starts with that little pill they call "X". Our children are taking it and it is making them addicts. When you break down the substance that is in that pill, and many others that the doctors give at the drop of a hat, no wonder we have all these deaths, but they did not just start in Portage, they have been all throughout the neighborhoods in Kalamazoo. Ross Jackson was found dead in an alley across the street from his mothers home he was over the age of 50 and then you have Maurice Coleman who was in his thirties when he Overdosed. These people were not bad people they just made the wrong choses. I remember when the war first started in Iraq the poppey fields were up and running why everything else was shut down.... There lies the answer to who is bringing it and where it is coming from. My message is Kill the shipments and save our people no matter what side of town, or part of the world they are from.
