  1. the sackler family MUST LOOSE EVERY penny they have.. sell purdue pharma off and all that goes to their victims

  2. Dope dealers have cash, not morals.

  3. Rico law applies!

  4. they belong in jail…

  5. When the right talks about stacking the courts with conservative judges it’s get out of jail free for the top

  6. They should be in prison! And all assets payed out to Americans as justice!

    • only if we don’t hold them to account, the future is in our hands, look at Hong Kong, they know how it’s done!

    • @Tidbit hahaha the Hong Kong ding dongs are getting it done if that’s getting it done I’ll pass

      @Tidbit Physicians knew how addictive it was as they prescribed oxycontin. My oncologist prescribed it for me. (I used cannabis instead, despite my doctor’s refusal to give me a card.) Right after I finished chemo, surgery and radiation, a whole bunch of brochures for addiction treatment showed up in my mailbox. Blame the medical establishment which will not let their doctors give patients medical marijuana cards, in states where it is legal. Even with how difficult it is to get a card, in states with medical marijuana, there is much less problem with opiate addiction. Don’t blame the manufacturer, blame the pushers.

    • snoop alert Now I know you’re a Russian troll! You don’t even care about democracy! Stop pretending to be an American, and do try to educate yourself – moron!

    Sackler should visit all the ‘victims’ and offer them a handful of Oxy’s if they agree to sign a contract
    promising not to sue in the future.

    Everyone agrees that the family that took everything from some families , should be forced to leave everything on the table on their way out of corporate existence.

    Uhm…if the Sackler family truly felt bad…they would convert the trust to a NON-PROFIT. Tens of thousands people died.

  10. I like how Stephanie gives herself a double fist pump.

  11. They’ll just pay the fine because it won’t be nearly as much as they made by making people ADDICTS…

  12. They need to be sent to prison for the rest of their lives. They need to die in prison.

  13. Corporate drug dealing kills people, Joe Citizen smoked some marijuana, Joe Citizen goes to prison while the corporate drug dealers make billions in profits, typical of America.

  15. What do you mean lawsuit??? Is there really not enough evidence to bring criminal charges? Is this just another example of money being above the law? Is America great again?

  16. But they want to sell overseas, what’s wrong with this family

  17. Why are these drug lords not being hit with RICO charges?

  18. Richard Christie | September 12, 2019 at 6:35 PM | Reply

    At last, a US prosecutor with balls.

  19. They want to sell heroin synthetic abroad to pay for the damage it done in the US. WTF

  20. Accountability, personal responsibility isn’t this what Conservative America always say to the lower class and poor. First of all let all the States get together and sue this family for every Dollar they own. Your houses, now it’s the States. Your boats, now they’re ours. Everything they own. Even the Collage funds. And then prosecute everyone of them involved in the drug cartel because that’s what they are..
