Trump on Drug War: 'We're Going to be Ruthless ... We Have No Choice'
February 10, 2017 | Speaking before a prominent group of police chiefs and sheriffs from across the nation, President Donald Trump said his administration will fight a "ruthless" war against illegal drugs and assist state and local officials in stopping gang members, "many of whom are not even legally in our country."
Quote:
"I've been here two weeks," President Trump said of his administration before a gathering of the Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 8. "I've met a lot of law enforcement officials." "Yesterday, I brought them into the Oval Office," he said. "I asked a group, what impact do drugs have in terms of a percentage on crime? They said, 75 to 80 percent. That's pretty sad." "We're going to stop the drugs from pouring in," said the president. "We're going to stop those drugs from poisoning our youth, from poisoning our people. We're going to be ruthless in that fight. We have no choice."

As for the drug cartels that have operatives throughout the United States, President Trump said "we're going to take that fight to the drug cartels and work to liberate our communities from their terrible grip of violence. You have the power and knowledge to tell General [John] Kelly -- now Secretary Kelly -- who the illegal immigrant gang members are." "Now, you have that power because you know them, you're there, you're local," said Trump. "You know the illegals, you know them by their first name, you know them by their nicknames. You have that power. The federal government can never be that precise. But you're in the neighborhoods -- you know the bad ones, you know the good ones."

He continued, "I want you to turn in the bad ones. Call Secretary Kelly's representatives and we'll get them out of our country and bring them back where they came from, and we'll do it fast. You have to call up the federal government, Homeland Security, because so much of the problems -- you look at Chicago and you look at other places." "So many of the problems are caused by gang members, many of whom are not even legally in our country," said Trump. "And we will work with you on the frontlines to keep America safe from terrorism, which is what I began this with."

Trump: 'Zero Tolerance Policy For Acts of Violence Against Law Enforcement'
February 10, 2017 -- As part of his plan to fight crime and violence in the United States, President Donald Trump stressed that the wall along the southern border "will be a big help," and he added that he is implmenting a "zero tolerance police for acts of violence against law enforcement."
Quote:
"The wall is getting designed right now," said Trump in a Feb. 8 speech before sheriffs and police chiefs of the Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) in Washington, D.C. "A lot of people say, oh, oh, Trump was only kidding with the wall. I wasn’t kidding." "No, we will have a wall," he said. "It will be a great wall, and it will do a lot of -- will be a big help. Just ask Israel about walls. Do walls work? Just ask Israel. They work -- if it’s properly done."

As for further protecting the people in law enforcment, Trump said, "You have asked for the resources, tools and support you need to get the job done. We will do whatever we can to help you meet those demands." "That includes a zero tolerance policy for acts of violence against law enforcement," he said. "We all see what happens. We all see what happens and what’s been happening to you. It’s not fair." "We must protect those who protect us," said the president. "The number of officers shot and killed in the line of duty last year increased by 56 percent from the year before."

He continued, "Last year, in Dallas, police officers were targeted for execution –- think of this. Who ever heard of this? They were targeted for execution. Twelve were shot and five were killed. These heroic officers died as they lived -– protecting the innocent, rushing into danger, risking their lives for people they did not even know, but for people that they were determined to save. Hats off to you people." "These slain officers are an eternal monument to all of the men and women who protect our streets and serve our public," said Trump. "We will not forget them, and we will not forget all of the others who made that final sacrifice in the line of duty. God has blessed our nation to put these heroes among us."

decriminalization of marijuana federally will reduce about half of the problem. A big amount of drug abuse is also through your local legal drug dealer, the doc.

Rarely do I agree with the left wing squad. But here I must.

Marijuana is not a so called gate way drug. To think that is pure BS..

Heroin users are going to that because it is an opiate. They got hooked by prescriptions for opiate pain relievers.

Marijuana has nothing to do with this. The addiction is opiates, the problem is opiates, and heroin fills the bill..

Mexican security helicopter guns down drug cartel members
Feb. 10, 2017 -- Mexico's Secretariat of the Navy said federal security forces killed Beltrán-Leyva cartel regional leader Juan Francisco Patrón and seven others during a shootout.
Quote:
Patrón, also known as H2, was a key figure in the cartel's operations in Nayarit and Jalisco, Mexican officials said. After a security operation, Patrón and his accomplices took up shelter inside of a residence in Nayarit state.

Officials said security forces surrounded Patrón, who did not back down. An Mexican federal security helicopter fired down to where Patrón and his accomplices where hiding.

It is not clear if the men died from the helicopter fire. "Today in a confrontation between criminals and Federal Forces, Juan Francisco N. was shot down with seven more accomplices," the Navy Secretariat said in a statement.

The Beltrán-Leyva cartel, also known as the Beltrán-Leyva Organization, began as a branch of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel before infighting split the group and they became enemies.

The deadly heroin epidemic is do to over prescribed legal painkillers

Quote:
“Doctors became very vigilant then about diagnosing pain and prescribing pain medication, and you can see a huge uptick of the amount of opiate prescriptions,” Drew told FoxNews.com. She explained that in many cases, patients began to misuse their medications and went down the path of addiction. Eventually, these people turned to something that was cheaper and easier to acquire: heroin. People who were not normally considered “at-risk” are falling victim to the drug, with some of the greatest increase of abuse occurring in women and those with higher income.
If you had bothered to get your news from a real news site and not a presenter of "fake news" you would know that and could be taken seriously. But you have chosen the path of lies, miss-representation, and alternative facts, you are nothing more than a troll and should be treated as such. Now go away you mom is calling you to dinner.
