It makes me sick

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

There is a certain group of young adults (All 20-30) in my area. 
In this group 10+ of them have died from drugs or violence in the last 2 years.

Each time everyone in their pathetic groups gets all sad and posts about how life isn't fair.

I think that is disrespect as possible.

These are people that used the drugs with them making these posts.


Don't these people realize it's their choices that are leading to these senseless deaths?

It isn't hard to understand Illegal activities+high profile gangs = some people are going to be taught lessons.
Also Highly dangerous chemicals + using them erractically = someone will overdose. 

How are 6+ accidental overdoses still shocking? How are 4 gang killings still shocking? 

I feel for the families, I do not have any sympathy for their "friends".

The do I'm sure of it. But respect the families that have lost thier loved ones. Admit your role in it and repent at least to yourself. It is wrong to let someone else walk that path, it is wrong to show up at the funeral if you gave them the meth that killed them. It is wrong that 40 people watched a girl get murdered, she was later dismembered and none of them did a thing. None of them told the police. And the local gang was able to set up a fall man so whoever really did it was able to go free. I understand they don't want to be next, but guess what even with everyone keeping the secret several of them have "gone missing" recently as well. So keeping the secret didn't help.

What is going on here is very sick. Several have run to other cities to hide. But the ones that say and think this gang is protecting them are just stupid.

And this is a suburban town, there was never gang activity here until everyone thought it was cool to be gangsta and eventually some real gangsters came into the picture.

it sounds like they all have an addictions and that is sad.

exactly at 17 I felt for them. 10 years later and countless lives lost I want to punch them for being so disrexpectful to the families by claiming it was so unfair. If its so unfair stop using drugs, and encourage everyone else to do the same... 

Quoting 504bbymami:

They are too damn old for all that. Life was like that when I was like 17. They need to grow up

have you lost family to addiction? And then have the dealers show up and act like they cared about that family member more then you did?

Quoting harpsichord:

They're allowed to react however they want. Sure, they all know drugs can kill, but that doesn't make it any less painful to lose someone.

They sound like they're all very deep into their addictions. Maybe I'm just empathetic to a fault or something, but these kinds of situations don't evoke an ounce of anger in me. It just makes me very, very, very, very deeply sad to see/hear about people being that addicted to drugs and not getting help.

Quoting Anonymous:

Not by acting like it was some random car accident that was so sudden and shocking. They all continue to do the same thing. They have come to the funeral all trashed and making plans to use the same drugs after. It is disrespectful to the families that lost the loved one and did everything they could to help them not fall into the dark arms of addiction.

There is responsibility in using with other people. There is responsibility in knowing someone has gone to far yet still "acting cool".

Quoting harpsichord:

Addicts are allowed to grieve just as much as anyone else. 

You sound very ignorant.

They all deal different things to each other. :( Maybe I just get mad because my cousin had 2 years of sobriety and one of these idiots gave him herion and he died that night. And specifically the ones that gave it to him blasted facebook with "sadness" and "how could this happen". And the drugs given that night were freebies to make sure he "wasn't a cop or snitch" meaning they require that "friends" use in front of them to be around. It is sick.
