President Trump rolling out opioid plan that includes death penalty for dealers
Does Trump Seriously Want to Execute Drug Dealers?
I certainly hope he wants to execute them. Just because the method than using a gun it doesn’t mean it’s not just as heinous. Drug dealers are killing thousands of people and getting away with it.
It’s past time to put a stop to it.
The Trump administration is finalizing a long-awaited plan that it says will solve the opioid crisis, but it also calls for law enforcement measures — like the death penalty for some drug dealers —
On Saturday at a rally in Pennsylvania, Trump said that there are no drug issues in Singapore and China because they “have zero tolerance policy” and “if they catch a drug dealer, it is then a death penalty.”
“If somebody goes and shoots somebody, or kills somebody, they go away for life and they can even get the death penalty, right?” the president said. “… A drug dealer will kill 2,3, 5,000 people during the course of his or her life. Thousands of people are killed or their lives are destroyed, their families are destroyed. So you can kill thousands of people and go to jail for 30 days.”
The plan, first reported by Politico, is expected to be released in New Hampshire on Monday where President Trump will make stops in Manchester. New Hampshire has some of the highest rates of overdose deaths in the country, according to the Center For Disease Control, coming in third after West Virginia and Ohio.
