Drug Addict Mugs an 8 Year Old Girl to Feed his Cocaine Addiction

Posted by PITHOCRATES - August 4th, 2012

Week in Review

So what’s the downside of decriminalizing drugs?  Stuff like this (see Drug addict mugged girl, 8, for just £3.50 as she walked to shop to buy sweets by Emma Reynolds posted 8/2/2012 on the Daily Mail).

A cocaine addict mugged an eight-year-old girl for just £3.50 as she walked to the shop to buy sweets.

That’s about $5.48 in US dollars.  Which really doesn’t matter as much as a cocaine addict mugging an 8 year old girl.  It’s just yet another example of a drug related crime.  Which, incidentally, won’t go away by decriminalizing drugs.  Unless the government provides free drugs to all drug addicts.  Which is doubtful.

This cocaine addict just didn’t wake up one morning and decided to mug an 8 year old girl.  Just as he didn’t wake up one morning and decided to experiment with hard drugs.  Picking cocaine as his first drug.  No.  More than likely he started with marijuana.  Then moved on to the harder stuff.   And over time an addiction grew.  Until one morning he saw an 8 year old girl with a purse.

If they decriminalize drugs more people will experiment with drugs.  More people will become addicts.  And more 8 year old girls will get mugged.  Unless all these addicts today made a conscience choice to become a drug addict.  And they didn’t become an addict because their recreational drug use got out of control.  Which is doubtful.  Addiction happens.  It is never a conscious choice.  And it can happen to anyone.
