You know you're fucked when the judge suggests post-trial therapy for the jurors due to all of the traumatic evidence submitted.

I love how he is described as a political donor like he has done nothing else in his life.

i mean the other stuff is what he's going to jail for

He was big enough and influential enough that he was able to hob knob with senators like Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu, and Hillary Clinton. He is exactly the kind of guy that is usually considered untouchable because of those connections. The fact that he didn’t get charged at all after the first guy was killed kind of says it all really.

I knew he was a Democratic donor. Know how I knew? Because if he were a Republican donor it would’ve been in the title.

CNN, The Guardian, Axios, and Buzzfeed say that he's a Democrat in the title. I stopped looking after I quickly found four.

Notice how no one in this thread is defending him

Also, the GOP would be defending him.

I knew because if he was connected to Republicans in any way this thread would be at the top of r-news and several other subs, with 1000s of comments and 10,000s upvotes

You’re not wrong lol. It’s kinda sad. I lean left, but the internet really can brainwash people.

If he were a Republican donor, he’d be pardoned and given the Medal of Freedom… and a contract with Fox News.

Eh, yeah, that's fair..

Ha please defend Republicans. I would love to see your ignorant attempt. You do notice Democrats actually hold their own accountable, unlike Republicans, right?

How is addiction a political issue? Damn it, we need to come together on this.

So I guess he and Adam Schiff will not be doing the dress up parties anymore...

All made possible by hooking people on opioids by big drug companies to start with.

The victims in this case died of meth overdoses not opioids.

Not really, while there are some, in reality very few people I know do hard drugs because of a previous opioid prescription. Source: worked at a methadone clinic for years.

Only idiots START with meth. They move on to meth when the opioids are scarce or unaffordable.

miss me with that. People knew exactly what they were doing and why. Or do you always drive 3 states away for a specialized clinic and a 6 month supply of your medication?

Drugging black people to death, apparently.
