    Talk about not paying attention. This is not something new.

    A South Dakota TV news reporter who covered the opioid crisis for years reported on the death of her own daughter Wednesday, detailing how the 21-year-old overdosed on fentanyl just days before a scheduled intervention.


    Angela Kennecke chose to share the loss of daughter Emily Groth on news station KELO-TV to raise awareness about the alarming trend.

    “Because if just one person hears me, if just one person does one thing to save a life, then I don’t care about a million naysayers or people who don’t understand,” Kennecke said in a special segment. “I just care about that one mother that I can stop from experiencing the pain that I have.”

    Groth had been struggling with addiction for more than a year before her May 16 death, the paper reported.

    DR. MARC SIEGEL: THE OPIOID CRISIS HAS A SOLUTION - HERE IT IS

    Kennecke was surprised to learn her daughter had been shooting heroin given her middle-class upbringing, she said in a Friday interview.

    Synthetic opioids like fentanyl are often mixed into the black-market supplies of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and anti-anxiety medications.

    An autopsy revealed Groth had six times what would be considered a therapeutic dose of fentanyl for a large man, Kennecke said, adding that Groth “was just a small young woman” and “didn’t stand a chance.”


    She said she noticed red flags in the weeks leading up to her daughter’s death.

    “Everything in my instincts told me something is seriously wrong here,” Kennecke said.

    An intervention for Groth was scheduled for May 19.

    Reporting on the opioid crisis and trying to help her daughter was a balancing act, Kennecke said.

    “I had to walk a very fine line between trying to help her, trying to talk to her and alienating her or pushing her away,” she said in a KELO clip.

    On average, 155 Americans die each day in the U.S. from an opioid overdose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The big question is were these drugs illegal and why did she not get her arrested and confined. You and I know that if you don't take action they can die. She failed as a Mother to take the right action.

    But liberals want to legalize drugs? Go for it, you want to OD and die, just one less liberal voter we have to deal with. Dumbass...

    That is my libertarian side talking, if you want to do it, go for it, just don't come to me when you are all fucked up, and want me to fix it...

    Getting her arrested would not have been the right action.

    Because having drugs be illegal worked so well here.

    You're aware it's more often conservatives dying from these opiates, right? Yet you don't see liberals chuckling over their deaths. We're better people than you, "you" meaning just you, and not conservatives in general.

    Mama screwed up, the system was never met to fix it. Should have had her confined somewhere when it was first detected.

    Wow.
    You really think illegally holding someone "somewhere" would be a solution?

    Typical leftard answer. If a liberal does it, a conservative must also, yet you don't see US breaking the law like you fuckers do. We don't push abortion like you do, yet your side is aborting over 300,000 a year and I applaud you for doing it(just like you use drugs) as those future Democrat voters are disappearing. That was why the 1/2 white community agitator had to open the flood gates to the dumbass horde from the south, so he could try to bring in fresh slaves for the plantation. But Hitlery couldn't get across the finish line even with the bogus claim of Russian Collooooosion, that still hasn't been proven by Muuulller, now it is changed to obstruction of justice. Such stupid fucks like you, who just wont pull your head out of your smelly ass, and realize you have been duped....
