    Today, junkies from all over SI celebrated at 1100 AM (the time they wake) with a needleful of Russian roulette death..Heroin.

    The DA is right to bring awareness to this. This is the plague of the SI of the 2020’s. Well, that and the Corona virii. All the oldtimers are gone. Not all, but many succumbed.

    Make it legal to shoot up at the precinct supervised by nurses. Or in hospitals. make it a medical issue. That’s really what it is.

    If you shoot up in the streets, JAIL.
