Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

They say God has a reason for everything, I still haven't understood this and don't know if I ever wi'll. I alike Rachel battle the same demons daily and it scares me to death not to mention having to witness my younger brother dealing with it to and than this happens. My heart aches seeing my brother and Rachel's family going through this I want to be the protector the savior but this was a above me by miles... If I could share something it is to be understanding with your loved one's to forgive an most of all to be grateful for them. Focus on how they make you feel when things are going good not the bad, because when they're not here you'll feel selfish to think anything less of them ever, I can tell you this through my personal experience there's nothing worth or even close to every moment you got to spend with that person. I hope others see this and take something from it cause on some real shit I'm broken an everyone else thats close to this tragedy is to. Rachel I'll always be thinking of you, I know you'll be watching over us, you're beautiful.
Always & forever
Love your brother,

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

Suboxone or methadone maintenance, it works, they block the opiates, anyone that needs it, the health district and lakeside on north Monroe! This story is so sad! My best friend a former cps case worker and tang case worker fell victim to heroin, she's now in Spokane county facing 10-15 yrs fed time for theft n drug dealing to support her habit! I beg anyone that has a loved one gripped by the hands of heroin the most successful way to treat is with maintenance and its covered by state and private insurances! Best if luck n my prayers to everyone fighting this nightmare!

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

This story is eerily similar to the one my family is experiencing now, although our story hasn't finished yet. These kids are allowed to come and go as they please from detox centers and check themselves out easily from rehab when in fact their minds are so clouded by the drugs they inject that they should be deemed "insane." Police often don't respond and claim "there are no available patrols." Emergency room facilitators merely nod when the suggestion of an attempted suicide has brought this child to their care and yet they release the kids, even when they can barely walk or talk as they leave the ER. Detox centers are almost impossible to find much less find an open bed for the addict. Rehab facilities are over booked, under staffed and it doesn't matter because these addicts have the choice to stay or not. No funding? THESE ARE OUR CHILDREN! Find the money to help them! One CPS case worker told me this week there is a "new batch of pure heroine hitting the streets" and claimed he had already removed children from 5 families and lost 2 addicts this week alone. This isn't just an epidemic. It's an atrocity that no family should EVER have to suffer. FIND THE FUNDING! Stop letting these addicts decide they simply want to leave. Something needs to change. Quickly.....She was 18 years old and had plenty of life ahead of her. My child is 26 and has plenty of life ahead of her. Hundreds of young adults are out there right now and all of them deserve a chance to the life they deserve. We have to change something.....

Re: “Barred from Help

This is too one-sided to be informative or eye opening. How about an article informing the public about the number of felonies (assaults) committed against Spokane hospital workers or mention the number of people waiting for psychiatric evaluations or competency evaluations in our city? I'm sure that ESH is following the law as much as they can with what monies they are given...

Re: “Barred from Help

Inlander, I am very disappointed in you. You owe it to EVERYONE in Spokane struggling with mental illness and their families to rewrite this piece with your facts in place. It is a hard enough journey without you writing false pieces like this one. Apologize to the mental health community and redo this article, please.

This Bill of Rights is cruelly inadequate. Every worker also deserves a tiara and a pony at their employer's expense.

Lynzie, I will make sure thus is followed up if it hasn't been. I have known Angel since 1st grade and have been one of 3 people actively checking on her case.

Re: “Barred from Help

Not enough money for psychiatrists in the DSHS system. It's impossible to get evaluations done on time or accept patients for admission if there are not enough doctors to see them.

Re: “Rushing's Rant

"Whocares" what political party started the KKK 150 years ago??? It was a bunch of white, segregationist, racists idiots that did and many of them were small town mayors, police chiefs and public officials... kinda like the one in Airway Heights making these public statements to call a black man a "monkey", "coon" or any other racist derogatory term.

Re: “Just Say No

Drunks are their own form of misery. I'm sure you feel the drunk driver who killed my dad had every right to enjoy his drug of choice and murder as he pleased. It took three convictions over 25 years for killing people while driving drunk to keep him in prison until he died. Meanwhile he caused dozens of accidents and injured a dozen people, inflicting misery with no remorse and because of people( like you)who support druggies, he felt no guilt for his actions.

1 in 10 adults between 20-54 are killed in alcohol related incidents according to the CDC. 88,000 needless deaths per year and $225 BILLION dollars in costs to the economy.

Being a druggie is nothing to be proud of or celebrate. The problem is not prohibition, the problem is that losers in this country consume drugs at a pace far ahead of the rest of the world and that dozens of nations suffer as criminal cartels drive them to ruin in their quest to supply you and your doper friends.

Re: “Just Say No

People make choices, and some of those choices are ill-advised and have undesirable consequences. Natural selection can be unpleasant.

Re: “Shake Down

I predict a proposed tax hike courtesy of Governor Inslee and West Side politicos. Isn't that always the reaction regardless of the occasion, and regardless of whether there's actually been an emergency?

Re: “Just Say No

You sound like a person well accustomed to finding unexpected joy and meaning in all aspects of life.

Fact is, if prohibition were abolished, the harms you described (except for ones prohibitionists made up) would be significantly reduced or totally eliminated, leaving only your selective irrational hatred for some drugs.

I look forward to your follow-up post detailing why alcohol prohibition must be reinstated. I've got popcorn ready to go.

Re: “Rushing's Rant

Try and remember, those nasty "KKK members and racists" are typically democrats. Denying it was your party that formed the KKK is, as always, a pathetic attempt to hide your own seedy past. Do you really think it was a kindness to call a "white person" a chimp? Are you that addle brained? This is YOUR behavior and YOUR own words and now you want to claim racist because they are spoken to you?

The second mystery of the universe is why some socialists, especially the ranting Jimmy, seem to think they are the know all, and end all experts on "racism". They are simply white people ashamed of their heritage who somehow feel they now have the right to stand up for the oppressed. Do you even know a person of color? ( you cannot say yes if they turn out to be white chicks from Montana)

Move to Airway Heights, register to vote and run for mayor already. Maybe you can turn the trailer trash mecca of Spokane county into a fully integrated showplace of poverty, drunken losers and missing teeth?

Re: “Just Say No

Imagine for a minute a world where 5 out of every 10 Mexicans did not have to work providing the drugs American dopers, junkies and self-absorbed losers require to get them to actually believe Obama is making the economy better.

Imagine a world where 2/3rds of a hemisphere was not growing coca, marijuana and opiates to satisfy the drug lust for one single nation. Never mind oil and those evil "fossil fuels", the real problem is the drug addled idiots of this nation require more dope than any single nation can grow to make it thru a week of Facebook and Twitter.

Terrorists the world over, massive drug cartels and governments of entire nations are funded by dopers in America. The pathetic American doper REQUIRES drugs to imagine they are having a good time at a concert. They suck as human beings and require dope to fornicate, dance and act stupid. They imagine they are smart and witty when in fact they are simply stoned and stupid.

Instead of whining about "zero tolerance" maybe you should ask yourself why you need to be stoned to enjoy even the most basic pleasure? Then you should ask yourself if the tens of thousands of people killed by drug trafficking organizations, in drug related crimes and by stoned criminals and drivers, should have died for your addiction?

Re: “Envision This!

The "living wage" proposed by the communists is about $47,000 per year. Ask them how they determine a "living wage"? Then ask yourself why you should pay $9.00 a gallon for gas so the pothead at the station can live like a king?

The "Workers Bill of Rights" means that if you own a business you cannot fire an employee for any reason whatsoever without approval of the local communist party members. Ask Greece how this scheme works? Imagine, spending hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars to establish a business and then trying to squeeze production out of lazy, pot smoking idiots making $47,000 a year that cannot be fired for any reason.

The real question is who will continue to do business within the city limits if this passes. The second question is who will pay your property taxes when this drives them up 300% as the city slides into despair and collapse.
