Oh! The crime! Racist Former Whites Only House Official and Chicago

In 2016 there were 762 homicides in Chicago the murder rate is 17.52 per 100,000. That means that .01752% of Chicago’s population is murdered each year.

Chicago does not have the highest murder rate in the country – it is actually 25th.

In 2016 the Cop Suicide rate was 29.4, the highest in the country.  That means that .0294% of all Chicago Cops commit suicide in 2016.

Chicago has the highest suicide rate.

One in six high school students in Chicago (15.8 percent) have attempted suicide in the past 12 months, according to a Youth Risk Behavior report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — the highest rate of 21 urban school districts surveyed. The suicide attempt rate in Chicago is 15,800 per 100,000 kids!

The suicide rate in America is 3 times higher than the homicide rate.

The drug overdose death rate is nearly 4 time higher than the homicide rate.

So why are these racist mofos so traumatized by Chicago’s homicide rate?

Black people accounted for little more than 8 percent, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data of Opioid overdose deaths. Meaning white folks are overrepresented in the number of Opioid Deaths.

White (especially men) also are overrepresented in Suicide rates.

What impact does race have on the incidence of ?

 

An article in The New York Times analyzed nearly 60 million death certificates collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 1999 to 2014. The analysis revealed that:

  • In 2014, the overdose death rate for whites ages 25 to 35 was five times its level in 1999, while
  • The rate tripled for whites ages 35-44 during that same period.
  • The rates of overdose deaths for black adults in those same age cohorts only edged up slightly, however.

 

The coverup? Right here from the whites only white supremacist cabal.

Junkies for Trump – Trumpazoid Celebrates Overdose Deaths of Ohio Farmer’s Kids

There is an epidemic out there in Trump Country. And it is killing more white, rural and suburban kids than all the black-on-black crime than any of the cities…Over three times as many and growing every year.

The Chumph’s budget cuts, and Paul Ryan’s Chumpcare assure that more of these kids will be dying, because of cuts (or outright dropping) in addiction treatment, availability of overdose drugs, and availability of counseling.

These kid’s parents voted for Trump…And in doing so killed their own children.

Voting race over the lives of their own children.

Trumpcare cuts include treatment for addiction…

Ohio farmer loses two kids to heroin overdose — and Obamacare-hating Trump fan celebrates

An Ohio father who lost two of his three children to heroin overdoses said he received a letter celebrating their deaths that was postmarked from a condominium complex owned by President Donald Trump.

Roger Winemiller shared his family’s story earlier this month with the New York Timesand WCPO-TV, and he got an anonymous letter about a week later that called for the repeal of Obamacare and referred to Trump, the TV station reported.

“It’s wonderful that junkies overdose and die,” the letter reads. “That is the only way we can rid America of all those low-life scum. I am so happy that your children did their part in reducing the drug population.”

The writer suggested that the Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would break the grip of heroin addiction in many parts of the U.S.

“We should look forward to the repeal of filthy Obamacare,” the letter reads. “When we reduce mooching, those thieves will quickly die when they lose medical access.”

The Wayne Township father lost his 31-year-old daughter to overdose March 26, 2016, and her older brother died from overdose nine months later. His surviving son, Roger T. Winemiller, has also struggled with drug addiction but is currently in recovery.

“It’s a perfect example of what we face here in this nation,” Winemiller said. “The type of people who are too heartless and self-centered to realize that addicts are beautiful people, and they are someone’s son or daughter. If they had a chance to talk to a recovering addict and see how vibrant they are, how intelligent, they might think differently.”

The letter was marked with a Trump Palace return address, but an employee told WCPO that the Trump Group-owned residential property had never had a resident whose name matched the sender’s signature.

Warren County, where Winemiller lives, backed Trump over Hillary Clinton in November’s election by a 67-29 spread — a much higher margin that Ohio’s overall 52-44 tilt toward the Republican candidate.

The southwestern Ohio county, like many others that backed Trump, is struggling with an epidemic of heroin addiction.

A recent task force report found Warren County, an exurban community between Cincinnati and Dayton, had seen a double- or triple-digit increase in opioid heroin overdoses and deaths.

Drug overdose was listed as the cause of death in 20 fatalities in 2014, up from 11 in Warren County a decade before, and shot up to 60 in 2015, according to medical authorities.

About 70 percent of those addiction cases start with prescription drug use in the home, but some addicts move on to heroin — which is both cheaper and more powerful.

A post-election analysis by historian Kathleen Frydl found a strong correlation between the opioid epidemic and counties in Ohio and Pennsylvania that swung from President Barack Obama in 2012 to Trump in 2016.

Twenty-six Ohio counties reported 20 or more drug overdose deaths per 100,000 people in 2015, and there was a 10 percent surge in all but two of those counties in support for Trump compared with Republican Mitt Romney in 2012.

There was a corresponding 10-percent or more drop in Clinton support compared with Obama in the previous election — and the shift was big enough for five of those counties to flip from Democrat in 2012 to GOP in 2016.

All but four of 33 high-overdose counties in Pennsylvania followed the same trend.

Another study by Penn State sociologist Shannon Monnat found Trump’s overperformance in Rust Belt counties correlated with other public health crises — including drug and alcohol addiction and suicide.

Voting for Trump – Your Brain on Smack

Too funny…and accurate.

The 14 states with the highest oxy/heroin addiction/overdose rates…Were the same state with the highest percentage of voting to the Chumph.

White folks on Smack and Meth.

None dare call it an epidemic.

Overdose Reversal Drug Free to Every High School

This was a brilliant move by the Clinton Foundation and Adapt Pharma. The beneficiaries of this are going to be in vast majority white families living in suburban or rural communities, and the entire strategy to save the victim is a marked departure from the 90’s “incarcerate the user”. The issue of Opioid abuse has gotten so bad, it has become an issue in the New Hampshire Primary –

The other drug manufacturers apparently decided to rip-off the public by doubling a tripling prices, instead of doing the intelligent and good for business thing by getting out in front of this…This puts them on blast for their corrupt business practices. Ad suggests that “Pharma Bro'” isn’t the only enemy of the American Health System.

And it will be interesting to see how many Red Zone Politicians are willing to kill children by banning this.

Overdose Reversal Drug Now Available To Every U.S. High School Free Of Charge

Advocates say this is another important step toward preventing fatal opioid overdoses.

Any high school in the U.S. that wants to carry an emergency opioid overdose reversal kit will now be able to get one free of charge, thanks to a new initiative announced Monday by the Clinton Foundation and the drug’s manufacturer.

Adapt Pharma, manufacturers of a nasal-spray form of naloxone, also known as Narcan, has partnered with the Clinton Health Matters Initiative to further expand access to the life-saving drug, the two groups said at the final day of the Clinton Health Matters Initiative Activation Summit. Naloxone is nonaddictive, nontoxic and easy to administer, especially through nasal application. It reverses the effects of an opioid overdose by essentially blocking the opioid receptors that heroin and many prescription painkillers target.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a nasal-spray version of naloxone in November, though it had previously been gaining popularity among first responders and advocacy groups as a first line of defense to prevent surging opioid overdose deaths across the nation.

“We are pleased to encourage public-private collaborations expanding access to naloxone,” Rain Henderson, CEO of Clinton Health Matters Initiative, said in a press release. “We are hopeful this effort will facilitate a dialogue amongst students, educators, health professionals, and families about the risks of opioid overdose and ensure naloxone is available in schools that decide to take steps to address opioid overdose emergencies.”

In addition to helping schools obtain naloxone, Adapt Pharma also announced that it had given a grant to the National Association of School Nurses to support opioid overdose education.

“We understand the crucial role schools can play to change the course of the opioid overdose epidemic by working with students and families. We also want every high school in the country to be prepared for an opioid emergency by having access to a carton of Narcan Nasal Spray at no cost,” Adapt Pharma CEO Seamus Mulligan said in a press release. “We look forward to working with our partners to implement these initiatives which build on the significant progress being made by legislators and community groups.”

A carton of Adapt’s Narcan Nasal Spray typically contains two devices, each capable of delivering one dose, at the cost of $75 total. In November, Adapt announced that it was coordinating with the Clinton Foundation to make naloxone less expensive, following significant cost increases by other manufacturers over the previous year. …Read More Here

Flakka – A Deadly New Street Drug With Potential Epidemic Implications

A new drug has appeared on the streets, which is being consumed because it is far cheaper than either Meth or Heroin. It is a manufactured drug, and has severe health implications. Ground Zero is currently South Florida. (Just as it was for Pablo Escobar’s cocaine back in the early 80’s). With it’s cheap price, and being relatively unknown to Law Enforcement outside of South Florida,  it won’t be long until it moves out to the suburbs and rural America.

The new drug flakka, which comes in the form of pink or white crystals, has grabbed media headlines over the last few months because of the drug’s side effects, which causes users to act in dangerous, even violent, behaviors. But what is flakka and why should we be so worried about it?

Flakka can be snorted, eaten, injected, or vaporized. It is a cousin of “bath salts,” which are an emerging family of drugs containing one or more synthetic chemicals related to cathinone, an amphetamine-like stimulant found naturally in the khat plant. But flakka is considered more addictive. It is also more dangerous than cocaine, and similar to, but cheaper than methamphetamine. Flakka, which gets its name from the Spanish slang for skinny woman, “la flaca,” also goes by the street name gravel.

Flakka’s side effects are concerning. There’s potential for permanent brain and psychological damage, as well as damage to the kidneys. The biggest danger with flakka is its potency. Just 0.003 ounces (0.1 grams) is a typical dose, making it incredibly easy to overdose. Overdosing can lead to symptoms of heart-related problems, violent behavior, spikes in body temperature and paranoia. It can also create feelings of incredible strength; some users even refer to feeling like the Incredible Hulk, which can put the individual into dangerous situations, for example:

  • A man from Florida stormed the Ft. Lauderdale police station in a panic, kicking and throwing rocks at a storm door, in an attempt to break it down and get inside because he thought he was being chased

  • A man was impaled by a fence as he tried to run into a Florida police department because he thought he was being pursued. He miraculously lived

  • Police shot and killed an armed Ft. Lauderdale man who was high on flakka after he took a woman hostage and held a knife to her throat

  • A teenager ran through the streets naked, covered in blood, yelling that she was Satan

  • A woman blacked out on a crowded street and abandoned her baby

A complete guide to flakka, the horrible street drug terrorizing South Florida

This past December, 34-year-old Ft. Lauderdale resident Bobby Henry Jr. posted a video titled “Flocka Is Destroying USA” that shows a young woman getting drenched by the rain, apparently oblivious to her surroundings.

“This is what flakka is doing in our hood,” he says in the clip.

Four months later, the common spelling of the drug has changed, but flakka poses no less of a threat — especially among South Florida’s most impoverished residents.

“A lot of people don’t have anything to live for,” Henry told Fusion. “Crack-heads are out and flakka-heads are in.”

WHAT IS FLAKKA?

The drug, which can produce powerful hallucinogenic effects comparable to those produced by bath salts, has garnered national attention in past week or so, with the Drudge Report linking to three different stories on its apparent newfound prevalence. One man was found running naked through the streets of Ft. Lauderdale, and another tried to break into the streets of police headquarters.

But Henry, who says he sees users in front of his custom jewelry office all the time, says it’s actually been around for “a long time,” and that it’s just another synthetic drug like crystal meth that dealers have given a new name to.

“It’s a cheap drug—it’s a cheap, powerful drug,” he said. “It gives them a high they can’t get from smoking weed or cocaine. They don’t have to spend so much money to get a good high.”

WHY IS IT CALLED “FLAKKA?” DOES IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH WAKA FLOCKA FLAME?

There’s no evidence that flakka is named after the Atlanta rapper, but nobody really knows where the name comes from. It could be a variation of “la flaca,” a Spanish slang phrase meaning “skinny girl.” Or it could simply be random.

For what it’s worth, Henry of Ft. Lauderdale says it’s random. “It’s just some crazy name for the way [it] makes you feel,” he says. “There’s no way of telling [where the name came from], they just put a cool name with it, and once it [got] going…today’s youth ran with it.”

WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

One of the first online mentions of the drug appears to have been last August, on the blog of a drug treatment center. Even by then, the writer warns that it has begun “causing havoc on the streets in the southern states, especially Florida” thanks to its cheap price. Flakka can be snorted, injected, smoked, or taken orally…

Today, alpha-PVP is manufactured in overseas pharmaceutical plants (Principally in China) and shipped all over the world. It was only declared a controlled substance in January 2014, and only then on an emergency declarationfrom the Justice Department, so large quantities may have been able to make it to the U.S. without too much precaution…

“We have seen it predominantly in the low income areas of the city which are represented by several races and both genders,” he said. “This drug is not used by any specific race or gender, but its effects are quite dangerous to the user.”

WHAT ARE ITS HEALTH EFFECTS?

In a recent presentation on the drug, John Cunha, an emergency-services physician at Holy Cross hospital in Broward County, said that users consider flakka to be the new crack or heroin, echoing Henry’s remarks. He compared the worst-case after effects of the drug to what can happen, in rare instances, to someone who runs a marathon, wherein muscle tissue starts to decompose and break down into the blood stream. That can lead to kidney failure and death.

“[Users] think they’re getting a combination drug that will allow them to find a happy medium,” he said. “They’ll get enough but not too high, and low enough but not too low, so that it balances out. This is the common myth on the street, that this flakka drug is crack and heroin, or crack and meth, or meth and heroin mixed together. Unfortunately it’s neither.”

Jim Hall, an epidemiologist at the Center for Applied Research on Substance Use and Health Disparities at Nova Southeastern University, told CBS that flakka use leads to a state of “excited delirium.” He added, “The individual becomes psychotic, they often rip off their clothes and run out into the street violently and have an adrenaline-like strength and police are called and it takes four or five officers to restrain them. Then once they are restrained, if they don’t receive immediate medical attention they can die.”
