  5. None of these opioid kingpins will ever do a day in jail. Our system is beyond corrupt.

  6. Put these druggies in jail where they belong

  7. 911 was an inside job to create wars of aggression like Iraq invasion with out REMORSE OR REPARATIONS for the purpose of drug dealing as has been demonstrated . Quit feeding our young to war/genocide and opioid abuse . This PROVES the CORPORATE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT CARE FOR IT'S CITIZENS . How clear can it be ? 18 years of never ending war to steal Palestinian land ONLY . Why are you misplacing your patriotism ? For Money ? Not Working . You are still AFRAID ENOUGH TO BORROW FROM YOUR DESCENDANTS FINANCES FOR YOUR FALSE SECURITY LIKE COWARDS .

  8. The war in Afghanastan produces 82 per cent of global opium .Taliban had all but eradicated the crops . CIA – criminals in action confront service men for enforcing this evil on America,INC.

  10. 1:08 Is your real name Wayne? You're cute! 🙂

  11. Saklers for PRISON! The sooner the better that ALL of the opioid producers associated with the pharmaceutical industry, who maliciously created this epidemic, are sent to prison for the rest of their anti-American lives!
    Lock them up!
    Lock them up!
    Lock them up!

  12. Quite different than locking people up, like during the 80's and 90's epidemic! Hope this new approach spreads to all communities.

  13. This is the real America helping each other out not dividing over politics

  14. Junk food releases endorphins similarly to the way opioids do. Therefore junk food is a hard drug.

  15. Thats good at least someone is trying to make a difference

  16. The 💊 makes you constipated.

  17. Esau this won't even work your days are numbered God has a brilliant plan for all of you SLAVERY…..
