    People can turn their life around after being saved from a near death experience.

    I dont care what a person is dieing from or how they are dieing, its a cops job to do their best to prevent it, until professional medical personell arrive.

    Cops DO NOT judge who's life is worthy to save and who's is not because they dont like their behavior
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    The police don't cut people out of cars. EMS or firefighters do, I believe.

    It is one thing to perform first aid. It is another to compel taxpayers to buy massive amounts of antidotes for overdosing drug addicts. My solution is for each community to decide. If a community wants it then let the community buy narcan for their police officers to carry as a separate item from tax expenditures.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    No where did I say for taxpayers to pay massive amounts for anything, I posted this to get others opinion.

    Now pay attention the cost is no different if a cop uses narcan or not, and Im not saying they SHOULD.

    Either the cop, the ent or the emergency room uses it, there is no additional cost factor in the adminstration of narcan. Medically the sooner its administered the great the chance of saving a life.

    No one should be required or feel an obligation to save them, and the taxpayers certainly should not have to pay for it.

    Apples and oranges. The drug OD would be less likely if the product were legal and the purity known

    There's that social compassion again. Ban the drug. Then not provide readily available care when the drug ban has life threatening consequences.

    Yeah, except that is not their mission, regardless of what stupid little logos they may have on their cars.

    Their job is to enforce the law... end/stop. The Supreme Court has ruled on two separate occasions that police have no legal obligation to rescue you, save you, or do anything other than arrest you if you commit a crime.

    Besides, how would they be serving the public better... saving some junkie from an OD so he can OD again later on, or by letting nature take its course?
    Gentlemen and ladies, I hate inflation, I hate taxes, and I hate Communism. Do something about it. Ronald Reagan's instructions to his first assembled Cabinet.
