    If I were Trump or any Republican running against a Democrat I would make a commercial featuring parents of children who died ingesting fentenyl laced drugs. I would have interviews with nurses and doctors explain what they are seeing on top of Covid cases. This is pathetic. Biden is allowing China to destroy what makes this country great.

    This is what happens when real doctors won’t subscribe real pain relief when an individual is tragically injured as this beautiful young woman was.

    As one that has endured chronic pain most of my life (3 five car collisions, accordioned in the middle each time destroying my back and neck, and no I wasn’t at fault in any way) I have experienced the lack of concern displayed by doctors in treating it. They either think you’re some kind of druggy or you’re seeking it for other nefarious reasons.

    The opioid crisis is creating more issues like this one. Godspeed young lady. I pray for your mom and children. This could have all been avoided had she been prescribed proper treatment for this issue until she could see her physician.

    The treatment doesn’t have to be opioids. There is other oral meds like lyrica or gabapentin that doctors are using off-book which will bring the level of pain down to a more manageable level.

    There are injections given in the area of injury that also achieve the same. Just off the top of my head these things could’ve happened at the ER level and this whole situation could’ve been avoided. When will doctors stop being such linear thinkers. So sad

DOJ federal indictment connects Sinaloa Cartel and Chinese ‘underground banking’

The Justice Department (DOJ) announced a huge connection between Chinese organized crime and the Sinaloa drug cartel. In a press release the DOJ reported a 10-count superseding indictment charging Los Angeles-based associates of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel with conspiring with money-laundering groups linked to Chinese underground banking to launder drug trafficking proceeds. During the conspiracy, more than $50 million in drug proceeds flowed between the Sinaloa Cartel associates and Chinese underground money exchanges.”

The indictment was the result of a multi-year investigation into the conspiracy—dubbed “Operation Fortune Runner”— unsealed on Monday charging a total of 24 defendants with one count of conspiracy to aid and abet the distribution of cocaine and methamphetamine, one count of conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, and one count of conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business, according to the press release.

“Dangerous drugs like fentanyl and methamphetamine are destroying people’s lives but drug traffickers only care about their profits,” said United States Attorney Martin Estrada. “To protect our community, therefore, it is essential that we go after the sophisticated, international criminal syndicates that launder the drug money. As this indictment and our international actions show, we will be dogged in our pursuit of all those who facilitate destruction in our country and make sure they are held accountable for their actions.”

“Drug traffickers generate immense amounts of cash through their illicit operations. This case is a prime example of Chinese money launderers working hand in hand with drug traffickers to try to legitimize profits generated by drug activities,” said Chief Guy Ficco of IRS Criminal Investigation. “We have made it a priority to identify, disrupt, and dismantle any money launderers working with drug cartels and we are committed to our partnerships with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to combat drug cartels and those who assist them in laundering drug proceeds.”

The Justice.Gov website explains of the indictment: “Following close coordination with the Justice Department, Chinese and Mexican law enforcement informed United States authorities that those countries recently arrested fugitives named in the superseding indictment who fled the United States after they were initially charged last year.”
