Drugs are a health care problem.

We need a health care system, not a cop.

"James describes himself as a Christian and right-to-life conservative"

He's so right-to-life that he wants to hang people.  Maybe he can share the Bible verse where Jesus executed people, because the way I remember it the only person who was executed in the gospels was Jesus.

59 year old special education teacher.
Basically an entitled boomer union member wanting to kill people.
Anyone want to bet he calls his students leeches on society?

"Yes, I'm very aware public hanging is extreme and totally not possible without Federal Approvals and not from city or state officials," James wrote on Facebook. "Extreme yes, but definitely brings attention to this scourge on Sylacauga, Alabama"

It definitely brings attention to the scourge alright.

Beat me to it. He looks like the kinda guy that would erect a burning cross in those drug dealers' front yards as a warning.

Okay, I grew up in an area where the Klan was basically the local government's unofficial third party (well, "third" party, it was basically the Klan versus a slight majority of the Democrats and like one nominal Republican who wasn't Klan), but honestly I have to admit that even by those standards this guy is making it a little too obvious.

I mean, it's impressive in a way to be so open about it that a random news report on you still signals your Klan membership separately in any individual paragraph when taken separately, but also... Jesus Christ, dude.  Just because you're a card-carrying member of a terrorist organization doesn't mean you have to flash that card ever two farking sentences.  Have some goddamned subtlety, dude, your big bro Bin Laden was able to hide who he was for years during an international manhunt.

Start with doctors and work your way down to the unlicensed pharmacologists.

Doctors be the biggest drug dealers in America.  It's not meth if it's Adderall!!! It's not heroin if it's oxy!
