Who’s responsible for death in Hillsborough County jail of former Hudson man addicted to heroin?

Nashuatelegraph.com: Who’s responsible for death in Hillsborough County jail of former Hudson man addicted to heroin?.

Sorry to bring down the tone (that post was hilarious Billie!) by posting this–but this made me WEEP.

How many times have we heard “opiate withdrawal is awful, but NOT dangerous” well it’s CRAP.  Not only is opiate withdrawal TREATABLE, it’s preventable.  AND THESE PEOPLE SAT BY AND LET THIS KID DIE!

Shame on them!

I will never forget the first time I read an account of an addict that died in jail.  The nurse came to check on her  and wrote in her notes “prisoner will not cooperate..impossible to take vitals as prisoner is HOLDING HER BREATH”

Come to find out she’d been DEAD for two hours.

Do we really want to live in a world were it’s acceptable to treat people like this JUST because they are addicts?
