Port Angeles quality of life update:

“We know there are beds available at night, but I think people for whatever reason, be it mental health issues, opioid addiction or other addictions, people would rather camp out,” he said.

Indiana meth:

Strict post 911 security protocols and a $40.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security fail to keep meth out: “…meth is flooding into the United States from cartels south of the border.”

Border Wall update:

“…none of the officers WFIU/WTIU spoke to believe President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall would have a large effect on the amount of methamphetamine, or other drugs, entering the US.”

Welcome Home Troops

Thanks for your many years of service in Iraq & Afghanistan- working to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Tried to have your back with strict post-911 security protocols, a $40.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security, federal agents at border crossings & ports of entry & passports/enhanced & Real IDs to keep us all safe.

We’ll try harder next time.


Did newspeople and politicians swear an oath to call it opioids instead of heroin?

Heroin crisis: A situation involving illegal product moved from outside the US into local communities. The US Dept. of Homeland Security has jurisdiction at the border, border crossings & ports of entry.

With a budget of $40.6 billion- how is the US Dept. of Homeland Security doing at keeping heroin away from local communities?

Opioid crisis: Term favored by the press & politicians to describe the abuse of product which may be stolen from Grandma’s medicine cabinet- also a very serious issue.

Accurate reporting allows people to learn how to prevent future incidents.

Anytime there is a plane crash- a thorough investigation takes place. Lessons learned are used to prevent future accidents.

Was the aircraft fueled with opioids before it crashed? Was it running on heroin?

Recovery, rehab, treatment, & addiction are important parts of this story.

What part of the story is missing?

Has anyone ever seen the press question the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP on their role in keeping heroin away from the Puget Sound area?

Interesting that the heroin problem seems to have grown after 911, the addition of The US Dept. of Homeland Security and the requirement for passports/enhanced & Real IDs.

Standard driver’s licenses have not been accepted at the border since 2009. For your safety.
