NJ.Com reports that Woodbridge Patrolman Christopher McClay first used Narcan on Jan. 21, about two hours after he had been trained to administer the drug. His actions helped save the life of a 25-year-old woman who had overdosed in a home. Four days later, he helped save a man who had overdosed in the parking lot of a township business.
Narcan is the drug you give to junkies when they have overdosed on Heroin.
OK I’m going to get hate mail here but WHY BOTHER?
A junkie who OD’s is not something to be excited about because all you’ve done in most cases is prolong the agony of addiction.
Now “saved”, the typical junkie goes on for a bit longer, statistically committing more crime to fund their habit, possibly picking up HIV or Hepatitis from bad needles / sharing, and thus a danger to others through spreading those diseases.
Yet the press suggest it is
a good thing to revive them?
No, not for me, let them go.
The sooner the better.
