    Four Shot Dead at Long Island Pharmacy

    Published June 19, 2011 | FoxNews.com


    Long Island police are on the hunt for a gunman who allegedly shot four dead at a pharmacy Sunday morning in what police say looked like a robbery gone wrong.

    Sources tell the New York Post that a man with a backpack entered Haven Drugs in Medford after 10 a.m. before unloading a firearm at two employees and two customers in the store. One victim was reported to be a pharmacist, while the other was an 18-year-old female covering a shift for a co-worker.

    this country is likely shy of surviving its War on Drugs. thank you very little Tricky Dick.
    its literally killing us. legalize and tax it. with the new revenue balance the national debt and open rehab centers that are funded and that will actually work .meanwhile, catch that repeat drug addled criminal and hang him in public next Monday morning--televise it live and make all the kids in high school watch. ain't nothing like being hit over the head with reality to drive a point home--
    what you do unto others will be visited back upon you...and now, not later. rant off.

    Gun control at work...if only NY had more gun control. My sympathy for all the families crushed by this horrific crime. I hope they hunt this dog down.

    Too often these vermin use firearms to threaten and rob people and yes even shoot maim or kill,but when confronted by armed Individuals they always throw their guns down so we can feed and shelter them for the rest of their lives.

    What does this have to do with the war on drugs?

    i believe the connection is that the killer was in a pharmacy---a drug store. he was not robbing a 7-11 or a grocery store or a liquor store.

    he was at a drug store for.....drugs. think he was there at the opening bell for a register of small change they open the day with?
    he was there for narcotic prescription drugs.
    he was there to feed his addiction.

    rather than a war, a system of rehabilitation and controlled disbursement of the drugs such that those
    addicted could have their needs fulfilled without stealing and killing to subsidize their habit could be tried.
    but a 'war' was more profitable for those in power at that time. now is a different time and now is also a time to revisit the social cost of continuing the war.

    Often these scumbags that rob a drug store are looking for enough quantity to hustle out on the street.
    AKA Pharmaceutical Gold. Though they may also be "users" themselves.

    i hope for a fast catch also, and the police can and do do it. than its the courts that show mercy (BS) and their out for another chance till they kill someone. than its catch and keep for 15+ years on death row. more tax money wasted. i have -0- sympathy for them. but just separate them from decent folk. failing that, minimize the pain they cause us. i advocate not for treating them nicely--rather to create a system that minimizes the hurt and expense they cause us.

    id like to see chain gangs brought back...chain a car thief to a garbage truck and have him working for his 3 hots and a cot 12 hours a day. work with the truck, eat with the truck, sleep with the truck--wanna see recidivism drop to zero--try this.

    Well, which one do you mean?

    If it's the second, are the taxpayers supposed to keep addicts in their drugs?
