Well, this is disturbing….
An officer from East Liverpool, Ohio shared some photos of an arrest on Wednesday of two people accused of being high on heroin with a 4-year-old in the back seat of their car. According to Officer Thompson, he approached the vehicle and found the driver, 47-year-old James Accord, with “pinpoint pupils” and bobbing his head back and forth. Thompson reports that Accord muttered to the officer that he was taking his passenger, Rhonda Pasek, 50, to the hospital.

According to the City of Liverpool’s Facebook page, they felt that it was “necessary to show the other side of this horrible drug”.
We feel we need to be a voice for the children caught up in this horrible mess. This child can’t speak for himself but we are hopeful his story can convince another user to think twice about injecting this poison while having a child in their custody.
We are well aware that some may be offended by these images and for that we are truly sorry, but it is time that the non drug using public sees what we are now dealing with on a daily basis. The poison known as heroin has taken a strong grip on many communities not just ours, the difference is we are willing to fight this problem until it’s gone and if that means we offend a few people along the way we are prepared to deal with that.
