You wanna know why Stephanie had her charges dropped? Read the summary of provisions for subparagraph 2 again. She was the one having an overdose and she had no priors. Also, the amount of drugs they found in the room was below the state standard.
You wanna know why Jesus is facing charges? It's because he was stupid enough to mishandle a gun when he had a large amount of cocaine in his possession. No one feels sorry for drug dealers who accidentally shoot themsleves. You can embrace the LTME term all you want. When you go beyond just touting those words and you read/acknowledge/understand the legislation as a whole, it is very obvious this law was not passed to protect a person in his situation.
yeah below the state standard. the oneida county DA said in the news the state standard is 8 ounces does anyone even know how much drugs that is ? its a crazy amount crazy and no user would have even one ounce let alone 8 oz like i said i didnt write the law so if you dont think the law is defending drug dealers your wrong because they are with that state standard i am not on a oneway street you are because i look at both sides

you are missing the big picture here you would rather this kid die then call 911 because this is what people do in fear of being caught with drugs i cant imagin how many people die from gunshots and found in a ditch because his friends didnt want to get caught with drugs? the goal is to ""preserve life""" not find them in a ditch dead in anyway shape or form this is why they put into law OR OTHER LIFE THREATENING MEDICAL EMERGENCY" and any DA who wouldnt want this law is not doing his job to perserve life and should not be the DA

the comunity would rather this man woman kid have someone call 911 without being arrest then to find ""a dead person in their comunity"" and upset voters and the public and cause a discomfort in the comunity with fear of walking down the street because the death was not established... this is why it says OR OTHER LIFE THREATENING MEDICAL EMERGENCY" because the law knows this happens with drug users and drug dealers and this is why they say the law doesnt apply with repeat offenders with crimes or if someone tryes to obstruct the police.. then the law doesnt apply.. but DeJesus was honest with officers and he was arrested and this was wrong because it encourages people to not call 911 and or encourages people to lie and obstruct justice.. you tell me what does the tax payes want to happen open cases or closed cases for the police

Obviously you are going to keep a strangle hold on your interpretation of four words alone. Good for you, I hope they make you happy. Maybe someday when you're a big boy/girl you'll be able to read and comprehend more than four words at a time.

The legislation was passed for overdose situations. The language throughout repeatedly refers to the consumption of drugs and/or alchohol and a person's health being in jeopardy from that. Someone with common sense would be able to figure out that "other life threatening medical emergencies" refers to things like:

*If you know someone is high and they get behind the wheel. Are they ODing? No, but they are certainly a danger to themselves and others. The police need to be on the lookout for that vehicle.

*If someone is high and they reach for a knife and say they're going to slit their wrists.

This guy mishandled a gun. The drugs that were in the room did not make him mishandle it. His own hands are to blame. He's a dealer who got caught because of his own carelessness. His health was in jeopardy because he accidentally shot himself, not because he took drugs. People mishandle guns. Accidental shootings happen, and plenty of them occur with people who are not involved with drugs. The drugs did not make him fire the gun.

Go back and read the Purpose paragraph at the beginning of the legislation. It is very clear who lawmakers were looking to protect: users ODing and the person witnessing the OD.

Right now my pea brain is telling me that your interpretation of Life Threatening Medical Emergency means you are an ambulance-chaser attorney who looks for loopholes to get your criminal clients out of trouble. You come across as someone who has only read the words Life Threatening Medical Emergency and has blocked everything else out. Let's see if we can fix that and make you just a little bit more informed. Ready?
the only people useing the loophole is the DA of oneida county some day the DA will be useing the loophole regarding the facts i state here for another rich and famous person

You're going with the 'right to bear arms' argument now?
You want to know how the mishandling of a gun ends up in drug charges?
The guy shot himself. Unintentionally, but he shot himself.
The cops asked if he had a license for the gun. He said no.
The cops asked where the gun was because since he doesn't have a license it needs to be confiscated.
They go to his home for the gun and they find drugs.
That's how drug dealers who accidentally shoot themselves end up facing drug charges.

Now, two points.
1. Before you reply you should know that the more vehemently you pursue this, the more I believe the motivation for your defense of this man is because he was your dealer and you're miffed you have to find a new supplier.

2. Instead of continuing to reply with posts that make you look like you're upset that you lost your dealer, consider doing something constructive/productive with your time. Hint: Given the terrible grammar you've displayed, I would recommend an English class. It would be a much better use of your time than trying to drum up support for a drug dealer who has no one to blame but himself for the fact that he suffered a gunshot wound.

Why are you arguing about something so irrelevant? I don't think one case has to do with the other, Stephanie is out and her charges were dropped for whatever reason and that's it! Just leave it alone already

Thank you for using the word irrelevant. That is exactly what this man's situation is compared to Stephanie's. Why bs bankrutcy doesn't seem to understand that I have no idea.
