More People Dying From Heroin Overdose Than Murder by Gun!

Check this out…

OF course the majority (by a pretty good margin) of these deaths are of white people living in the suburbs and rural areas…So unlike the “crack epidemic” there isn’t going to be any push to criminalize.

Yet another reason the “War on Drugs” has been an utter and complete failure.

Heroin deaths surpass gun homicides for the first time, CDC data shows

Opioid deaths continued to surge in 2015, surpassing 30,000 for the first time in recent history, according to CDC data released Thursday.

That marks an increase of nearly 5,000 deaths from 2014. Deaths involving powerful synthetic opiates, like fentanyl, rose by nearly 75 percent from 2014 to 2015.

Heroin deaths spiked too, rising by more than 2,000 cases. For the first time since at least the late 1990s, there were more deaths due to heroin than to traditional opioid painkillers, like hydrocodone and oxycodone.

In the CDC’s opioid death data, deaths may involve more than one individual drug category, so numbers in the chart above aren’t mutually exclusive. Many opioid fatalities involve a combination of drugs, often multiple types of opioids, or opioids in conjunction with other sedative substances like alcohol.

In a grim milestone, more people died from heroin-related causes than from gun homicides in 2015. As recently as 2007, gun homicides outnumbered heroin deaths by more than 5 to 1.

These increases come amid a year-over-year increase in mortality across the board, resulting in the first decline in American life expectancy since 1993.

Nikita Whitlock – Racist Burgulars

I’d suggest Mr Whitlock moved. If your house has been broken into twice in 6 months…Its time to change neighborhoods.

Suspended Giants FB Whitlock: Burglars left swastika, ‘KKK’

Suspended New York Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock said burglars scrawled racist graffiti that included a swastika, the letters “KKK” and the phrase “Go back to Africa” when they broke into his New Jersey home on Tuesday night.

Whitlock told WCBS-TV in New York on Wednesday that jewelry and video game systems were taken and that it was the second incident he and his family have experienced at the apartment.

The Moonachie Police Department is investigating Tuesday’s event.

“It just re-establishes that no matter where you are, no matter who you are, this can happen to you,” said Whitlock, who was suspended 10 games without pay in September for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Whitlock, 25, told WCBS-TV that he and his wife and their two young children were out for a few hours when the burglary took place. Whitlock said the intruders gained access through a small window of their Bergen County residence.

“It’s very disgusting, actually; it’s very disheartening,” Whitlock’s wife, Ashley, said. “You hear about things that do happen, but you never think, ‘Oh, this is going to happen to me.'”

“It’s about to be 2017,” Nikita Whitlock said. “Oppression, violence, racism, hatred, violence, there’s no need for that.”

A representative for Whitlock told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that the player’s previous residence was also burglarized.

Sgt. Richard Behrens told ESPN that the first incident at Whitlock’s current residence, that occurred over the Thanksgiving holiday, was an act of vandalism in which door window was broken.

Whitlock’s 10-game ban was his second-such suspension and was for the same substance that cost him four games in 2014, according to an ESPN source. The second suspension will cost him $204,705 in salary.

Whitlock, a second-year player out of Wake Forest, was already on season-ending injured reserve with a foot injury.

Whitlock was the Giants’ fullback and a key special-teams contributor last season. He also played some as a pass-rushing defensive tackle. Whitlock started five games, had a sack and finished with four special-teams tackles.

Somali-American State Congresswoman Attacked in DC

Another Trumpazoid, another hate crime…

Another question…There actually is a white, American born cabdriver in DC? I haven’t seen one of those in 30 years! The joke around DC is you can always tell where there is a war in the world by where the cabdrivers come from.

History-Making Somali-American Legislator Reports ‘Hateful’ Taunts In D.C.

For the first Somali-American lawmaker in the U.S., it was meant to be a day to remember: a visit to the White House for policy meetings before she takes office in Minnesota. But as she left the seat of U.S. power, Ilhan Omar says, she was subjected to a hateful and threatening verbal attack in a cab.

“I pray for his humanity and for all those who harbor hate in their hearts,” Omar, a Muslim who wears a head scarf, wrote of the cab driver who she says assailed her. In a Facebook post, she says the encounter took place on Tuesday.

Saying that she was “subjected to the most hateful, derogatory, Islamophobic, sexist taunts and threats I have ever experienced,” Omar says the cab driver “called me ISIS and threatened to remove my hijab.”

Omar, 34, recounted the abusive encounter in the nation’s capital just one month after she made both history and headlines with her inspiring personal story of a former refugee who won a state House seat in southeast Minneapolis, years after her family fled Somalia’s civil war.

“This really was a victory for that 8-year-old in that refugee camp,” Omar said of her Election Day win. “This was a victory for the young woman being forced into child marriage. This was a victory for every person that’s been told they have limits on their dreams.”

This week, Omar has been in Washington, D.C., to attend the State Innovation Exchange conference along with hundreds of other state legislators. She also spoke at the U.S. Institute of Peace on Monday — Arab American Day. One day later, she was at the White House for a discussion about economic issues facing the middle class.

After the White House session, Omar said, she was verbally abused during the cab ride to her hotel, adding that she “wasn’t really sure how this encounter would end as I attempted to rush out of his cab and retrieve my belongs.”

Omar added, “I am still shaken by this incident and can’t wrap my head around” the increasing boldness of people “displaying their hate towards Muslims.”

Her Facebook post about the incident has drawn thousands of reactions and hundreds of comments from people who expressed their sympathy and solidarity with the mother of three who will be sworn into her new office in January.

One of the most popular responses to Omar’s post came from another Minnesotan who had recently visited the nation’s capital.

“I just got back from Washington too,” Christopher L. Wendt wrote. “I had a cab driver originally from Somalia. When I told him I am from Minnesota and that we have a ‘first’ Somali woman legislator, he got very excited. ‘Ilhan!’ he said – very proud. Keep it up. We’ve got your back.”

Another Chumph Crazy Tries to Frame BLM For House Fire

Yet another Chumphazoid scumbag commits a crime and tries to blame it on BLM…

New York firefighter charged with setting fire to own home — and blaming it on Black Lives Matter

A New York firefighter was arrested after allegedly setting fire to his own home in an apparent attempt to smear anti-police brutality activists.

Jason Stokes pleaded not guilty Tuesday to arson in connection with the August fire at his house in Endicott, reported WBNG-TV.

A family member said at the time that they believed their home was targeted because of the “Blue Lives Matter” flag flying out front.

Investigators found the message, “lie with pigs, fry like bacon,” written on some siding outside the burned home.

The slogan apparently referenced an incident from August 2015, when some demonstrators chanted, “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” during a Black Lives Matter protest at the Minnesota State Fair that was widely reported by conservative media.

Pro-police websites blamed the fire at Stokes’ home on “terrorists” associated with the civil rights group.

Prosecutors now believe the 41-year-old Stokes wrote the message to help cover up his crime, although they’re not sure why.

“We don’t need to show a motive, we need to show intent,” said Steve Cornwell, Broome County district attorney.

Investigators also found multiple gas cans placed throughout the home, which they said appeared to be booby-trapped, but Stokes’ family escaped unharmed and no other injuries were reported.

Cornwell said he was disturbed by the apparent attempt to blame civil rights activists for the fire.

“That statement to me is absolutely despicable,” he said. “It fuels a false narrative when it comes to the work that police officers do.”

Stokes remains jailed on $10,000 bond.

The Breakfast Club Trevor Noah Interview

A couple of things here…

First, that somehow Tomi Lahren is “beautiful”…Nope.

Second, somehow that Noah is a “sell out” for meeting with her after his interview.  NO – that’s Business.

Veterans Apologize For American Actions Against Native Americans

A deeply touching “Forgiveness Ceremony” with he Sioux at Standing Rock.

The problem being that the Chumph gestapo wants to land grab Native American Land because about 20% of the oil and gas remaining in the Continental US is located on those Reservations.

48th “Indian” Wars, anyone?
