Woolrich, I wish I knew you. I would love to point out your hypocrisy, I am sure it exists. You have no idea what others go through and no concept of humanity. Walk a mile in anothers shoes before you go tossing out your foolish comments. Seriously, you are worse for this world than ten good people with problems. I would trade you for a compassionate person with a drug problem any day, you are a sorry excuse for a human.

I completely agree with both comments. This young man is related to me and very close. He's anything but violent or a bad person. Saying that though, he was intelligent enough to know the consequences of what he did. Sometimes the best help is help you don't ask for. Sometimes you have to go backwards to ever move forward again. His addiction completely controls his life and in my opinion if this hadn't had happened, it would not be long before he moved onto something harder or ended up dead. Everyone is still responsible for his/her actions and hopefully the harsh reality of what his life will be now will be the push he needs to straighten himself out.

Excuses, excuses. Don't care about what his reasons are. This touchy feely compassion we give to these criminals so they dont have to take responsibility for their actions is sickening. Did the crime, do the time. Its that simple.

Hopefully, with the opening of the new methadone maintenance program here, more addicts like Mr. Moriarity, will get help rather than resort to crime.

The desire for mood and mind altering substances has been present since we began walking upright. There will always be those to fill that desire, whether it be legal or otherwise.

Interdiction of the supply chain and incarceration of users in this country continues to be a complete failure. Why is this reality so hard to face?

It's time focus is shifted to treatment and management of addicts. The opening of the methadone clinic here is a great step in that direction.
