  1. Thank goodness the police knew what the signs of a overdose were and had the means to save the dog. It’s becoming so commonplace now that all police keep Narcan on them while on patrol since they deal with multiple calls a week about unresponsive overdosed people. I say let the people die, don’t save them with Narcan. They only are going to start using again after being saved it seems. The planet is over populated anyway and if one druggie dies, who the hell cares. If their family members really loved them, they would intervene instead of allowing them to run the streets uses drugs. If you OD, then it’s your fault. You knew the risk of taking drugs and did it anyway.
