In response to Bloods gang member had 100 bags of heroin in anus:
If the legal punishment for smuggling or dealing illegal narcotics was to have the State shove 100 bags of heroin up the criminal’s backside, the public wouldn’t stand for it. And yet, these smugglers are willing to do to themselves what would be considered cruel and usual were the State to do it to them.
There’s nothing romantic about being a criminal. Debasing yourself is almost always part of the lifestyle. Any realistic look at the criminal lifestyle, from the Mafia to street gangs to murderers-for-profit, is a look into the most sordid, sub-human way of life imaginable.
It’s probably the same with the media, though they’ll never tell.
