In 2021, more than 70,000 people died from fentenyl.
In 2022, 1192 were killed by police. This includes those that were classified as justified.
The whole nation is about to come apart at the seems because of the death of one man, who was under the influence and resisting arrest. While I feel horrible at the loss of any life, there is just no comparison. Where is the outrage of the thousands of lives lost to fentenyl?
Moreover, the death of the man in Memphis was the indirect result of drug abuse. Had he not been under the influence, it is highly likely he would not have been stopped.
Maybe, just maybe, someone should show a little anger at the characters that sold the victim the drug. (I’m not sure, but I believe one of the earlier reports said he was on speed.)
Finally, may I say something about the mainstream media. They spent hours on the death of one man while hardly mentioning what led up to the horribly bad incident. The reason that hundreds of thousands have died is because of illegal drug distribution, which we can trace back to China and the cartels in Mexico.
Joe is really upset over one man in Memphis. Not one word by anyone about the murderers shipping poison over the border.
Note that I call them murderers. Most of their victims fail to survive and return for a second purchase. If the purpose of the cartels was to make money, they’d not choose to sell the poison they are killing more with their chemical warfare than we lost in Vietnam.
