      “suspected heroin” is not a criminal issue? Seriously, since when?

      It’s a health issue.

    Look here, another junkie. Does this one work or are we the taxpayers supporting her junkie lifestyle. From what I have seen if a heroin addict is working it usually doesn’t last long. Most bosses have an issue with their employees going in and our of consciousness while on the job.

      Actually what u idiots fail to realize is she saved a person life that day! I know her she’s a good person that’s fighting her own Desmond she was clean for over two years and relaps and yes she been clean since! I am proud of her and how far she’s come!! As far as the medical emergency goes Another person OD’Ed where she was at and when everyone else ran she stayed called the ambulance and helped all the way through that! That man is here today and alive because of her! Sad part is I don’t even think she knew him so if your wanting to trash talk on someone don’t do it on her!! She deserves the credit she earned not to be downed on! The only thing You people see is her mug shot and a mention of a medical emergency and the fact that she was arrested for possession you didn’t see the REAL STORY!

        Right. Except in MD when you call 911 and there is heroin present you cannot be charged. Look it up for yourself. I am calling BS on your reply.

      • TellItLikeItIs on July 12, 2017 at 1:56 pm

        Desmond? I didn’t read anything about Desmond! Why were they fighting? Was it over the illegal heroin? Maybe the police should question this fighting Desmond!

        Pretty sure the junkie is “here today and alive” because the taxpayers are forced to pay for the Narcan!

        So she is still hanging around junkies, saved another junkie drain on society, and has you believing she is clean. You sound like one of those enablers to me. If you keep on believing the lies and enabling, she will be on the bad end of the medical emergency one day and judging by her so called friends she will be left alone. You still didn’t answer the question of if she works or is another drain on the tax payers. She looks able bodied to me so I hope she works and pays for her own stuff.

        The Opioid problem that is running rampant through our country will never go away as long as there are enablers like you keep making excuses for the junkies!

        Linda C, thank you for telling the whole story. If she is clean, a simple pee test will set her free.

    She must not want her kids back & that’s sad because she has beautiful children

    Who wants to bet her next mug shot looks 10 times worse?

    Now will she take up Larry Hogan’s $22M plan to become clean or will she be back on the SMNewsNet in a few months?

    I don’t endorse the use of illegal substances and I’m a taxpayer but at the same time people like this need help not jail depending on the circumstances. I can bet any dollar that most people who comment here have used some type of illegal drug somewhere in their teens or throughout life. Don’t look at a homeless person and tell yourself that would never be you because it dam well could. People fall on bad luck all of the time and sometimes people make a poor choice that literally destroys them and others, not a life someone sets out for. I don’t know this person but looking at all the negative comments show ignorance and unfairness.

    • Adam 12 on July 12, 2017 at 12:13 pm

      Until she steals from you, then it’s different, right? Stop enabling people. She very may well need help but giving her a pass on criminal activity is not the answer. And us taxpayers are sick of our hard earned money going to these worthless people who for the most part don’t care if they get clean or not.

      Ignorance and unfairness is working hard your whole life and following all the rules only to be robbed by one of these turds. Then the biggest kick in the nuts is you find out they are on full public assistance so it is like you are being robbed twice. Unless a needle is forced into someone’s arm they are the only ones responsible for their addiction. This is far from falling on hard times and you saying that is an insult to every person who followed the rules and truly did fall on hard times. It is people like her and you that make it hard for the money to go to people that truly deserve it.

    What about the good Samaritan law??? If she really was saving someones life she is free from prosecution and charges.

    • Ben Matlock on July 13, 2017 at 1:01 pm

      My guess is she wasn’t saving anyone rather part of the incident.
