This is a VERY DISTURBING story in my opinion...

Here are the FACTS (according to The Buffalo News):

  • Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell W. Whitfield Jr., firefighters have responded to 45 overdoses – 24 in the last week.
  • Late last week over a 24-hour period, city police responded to 10 overdoses, one of them fatal.
  •  Authorities also say the 119 deadly overdoses in 2014 could double by the end of 2015.
  • Alarmed by the increasing numbers of overdoses in recent days, a local health insurance company on Tuesday re-instituted the PainkillersKill campaign.
  • Dellsean Hamilton, 26, of Buffalo, was arrested last Wednesday for possession of 2,100 bags of heroin and fentanyl, a shotgun, and two rifles after Erie County sheriff’s investigators traced the deadly overdose of a Concord man back to Hamilton. He was allegedly selling a highly potent mixture of heroin and fentanyl and claiming it was just heroin.
  • Fentanyl, unlike heroin, is a laboratory-manufactured opioid often prescribed for cancer patients, and three to five grains of it, the size of table salt grains, can kill, police and health officials say.

Do you agree with Judge refusing to increase Dellsean Hamilton's bail because there is no definitive proof that the product sold by Hamilton is tied to the overdose death of a Concord man, or should Heroin Dealers be harshly disciplined in general whether associated with an overdose death or not?
