Heroin Overdose in Gorge Metro Park

The following was obtained from a Cuyahoga Falls Police report dated Dec. 1. It does not indicate a conviction.

Cuyahoga Falls Police and Fire rushed to Front Street on Saturday morning after a man was seen slumped over his steering wheel in the parking lot at Gorge Metro Park. 

When paramedics arrived on scene, they were able to resusciate the unresponsive man. He was taken to Summa Western Reserve Hospital following the overdose, according to a police report. 

Authorities found two used hypodermic needles and a burnt spoon in his car, and confirmed heroin use. 

The man, who has a reported history of drug offenses, was charged with drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia.

When did John get appointed as the brown shirt in charge here? Libs cannot take it can you? It was OK to bash Bush and make a film about his assassination, but if some nut job did the same thing about Obummer it would be hateful and racist. Typical double standard. I myself am so looking forward to having my health care premimums going up $1000 next year so those that do not work have health care (even though they already have it now), and the government has the ability (not the right mind you) to ARREST you if you do not have the King's personalized healthscare. Not to mention it is adding more GOVERNMENT (non)workers to the system. No I will not give it a rest until it is over turned and the King is off his throne. But then the republicans certainly do not know how to select a good candidate either so we are still screwed either way just with King Hussein it is worse.... As Nazi Pelosi said, "well we have to pass the bill to know what is in it". Yep, that is the kind of people I want running my government! Ding dongs.....

Good morning Phil, I do appreciate the contribution, and I encourage you to comment as often as you like; but It seems you've strayed off topic a bit. How does Obama's re-election relate to heroin use? Best, JD
