Give addicts heroin, says officer

Heroin should be prescribed to drug addicts to curb crime, the deputy chief constable of Nottinghamshire has said at a drugs conference.
I'm sorry but this seems to me to be policing on the cheap! It rewards the very people who should be getting put in jail. As far as I am concerned all this will do is demonstrate that an illegal habit is being condoned.

Instead why don't the police arrest those responsible for committing crime to fund their illegal habit. The courts could jail them for a decent amount of time. Whilst in prison they are treated for their addiction and are not allowed to leave prison until they are clean!

It really isn't rocket science - or is it!!!!!!

Bloody hell. I thought you'd been reading this. I'd only just finished typing it... great minds, eh?

I think we should give them a lot of heroin, enough to suffle off this mortal coil. Problem solved... no reoffending.

Hear! Hear! My thoughts as well.

Simple solution: buy up the bumper Afghan crop, and refine it to the finest pharmaceutical standards...

Then add a few 'special ingredients'.

Then hand out to the smackheads.

Any suggestions for the special ingredients?

I wouldn't have thought dilution was needed; most drugs are so diluted that a dose of the uncut stuff would send the druggie on a one-way trip to Valhalla.

So we solve the drug problem by sending the smackheads direct to source. A lot cheaper for HMG than £12,000 as we already have flights going there. Smackhead happy as £50 "hit" will cost him pennies in Stan. UK pensioners can sleep safe in beds at night as burglary down, smackhead not used to pure hit so one time event. Demand dries up so druggy cycle broken.

What was the down side again...............??

Bang 'em up, don't let them out until they are clean and reeducated.

As for the dealers/transporters etc..... Strip them of their assets (houses, cars and jewelry) and then execute them.

There is absolutly no need to hand out this sh1t to anyone. With proper help, they can be weened off it.

Alright, alright. Refine then cut with non-toxic filler agent (i.e. make into lovely diamorphine).

Anyway, the Valhalla trip doesn't seem like such a bad idea - except to the poor buggers who have to clean up the mess after the neighbours start complaining of the smell after a couple of weeks... :twisted:

My, my, what a totally enlightened community!

The junkies you see hanging around in the alleys comprise about 2% of total smackheads. The ones you don't know about are judges, briefs, bankers, managers etc, who only load to hang in the privacy of their homes. So what do you advocate for them? Speaking as you all are from a position of knowing absolutely fück-all about smack or the overall problem.

Heroin should be totally deregulated. Only then will society learn to accommodate it. This is a problem that won't go away simply because we fail to address it in a mature and constructive way.

Nah, might kill off a few, maybe even most, of 'em. But there's always some bright spark who'll hit on the idea of diluting it for themselves and flogging the rest. Or maybe even giving it to someone else to get them hooked.

Addiction is by it's very nature an irrational impulse, so why not treat them like anyone else who's not in control of their own actions and section them until they can be dried out.

Of course if they go on to reoffend, just adopt the Chinese solution of a lead chill-pill in the back of the head and bill the family for the bullet.

Back to the article; why is it senior cops don't seem capable of just saying "crime should be fought", anymore? Isn't that their sole reason for existing? What next, can't catch all the yardie gangsters so let's make drive-by shootings legal and provide the rounds on the taxpayer?

If a junkie isn't commiting any other offence, fcuking their own life up with heroin is their choice, and hell mend them. It only becomes an issue if they fund it through crime, for which they should be caught and (apologies to Blackadder) damn well hung, in my view.

March out, prisoner and escort. Defdightdefdightdefdight...

Remove the dealers! Ta da, no-one gets to smack themselves up to the eyeballs.

Also this police officer was saying about giving addicts free heroin to prevent them from committing crimes to feed their habit. I'm sorry to say but as abhorrent as taking illegal drugs is, I doubt you find a highly paid professional breaking into houses to feed their habit! I'd still lock them up for being a user though!

Sorry, Moody. What's (or maybe who's?) "Trisha"?

Wasn't Heroin given to junkies in the 60's before a change in the law?

No , they tend to steal from family, their employers or clients.

Yeah, right. That worked really well with handguns, didn’t it?

Drugs are MADE illegal, just as tobacco and alcohol were once illegal. It’s not some cosmic law (although you seem to think it is). The only solution to this problem is full legalisation of all drugs. Of course, that’ll still leave you secretly envious of drug-users though (think deeply about that before you answer).
