A tough Florida sheriff called out heroin dealers in the Lake County community last week when his department released a video warning heroin dealers that they would soon be arrested for selling drugs.
Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell, who was flanked by his deputies in face masks and bulletproof armor, warned heroin dealers that their time was running out.
“To the dealers who are pushing this poison, I have a message for you: ‘We’re coming for you. Enjoy trying to sleep tonight wondering if tonight’s the night our S.W.A.T. team blows your front door off the hinges.’”
100 Percent Fed Up reports:
Opioid overdose kills about 78 people a day in the United States. In 2015, more than 33,000 died of opioid overdoses, which was a record high, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The latest research only adds more troubling statistics on the trend.
In the study, Columbia University researchers surveyed more than 79,000 people and found the proportion of Americans using heroin jumped from less than 1 percent in 2001-2002 to nearly 2 percent in 2012-2013. The prevalence of heroin addiction increased threefold, from way below 1 percent to nearly 1 percent, the researchers reported.

America needs more sheriff’s like Grinnell. Too many communities are falling victim to violent drug dealers. Hopefully Grinnell will be able to round up all of the heroin dealers in his community and deliver swift justice!
