The Times objects to stigmatizing behavior only when it doesn’t really mind the behavior. It never advocates a “forgiving approach” toward things the Times dislikes. There will be no “forgiving approach” to abortion-doctor killers, Catholic priests who molest children or corporate polluters — though those behaviors may also result from a “disease.” (…)
In 2010, 38,329 people died from drug overdoses, twice the number a decade earlier. More people died of drug overdoses than from automobile accidents (30,196), murders (13,000) or gun accidents (700).
About 90 percent of heroin in the U.S. is brought in by Mexicans. In 2013, U.S. authorities seized 2,162 kilograms of heroin coming across our southern border — compared to 367 kilos in 2007. The government has estimated that 660,000 Americans are using heroin and more than 3,000 are dying of it every year — because Mexico is boosting the supply.
Even when Mexicans dump illegal drugs on our country, it’s America’s fault. As the Times explained in an Aug. 30, 2015, article, Mexico increased opium production by 50 percent in 2014, “the result of a voracious American appetite.”
In what other circumstances do we absolve the seller of a dangerous product because a buyer exists? It’s not the hit-man’s fault — that lady wanted her husband dead.
