#Addicted (Big Pharma): Daily Caller reports: Officials said the increase is likely a result of the massive shift from prescription painkillers to heroin by dependent users who build a tolerance to pills.


http://www.neonnettle.com/ “As we try to address prescription opioids and the misuse of those in Colorado communities, some people are turning to heroin and the risk of a newborn becoming addicted to opioids increases with heroin,” Lindsey Myers, who runs the department’s violence and injury prevention efforts, told KUNC. “It’s not just treatment. It’s also prevention and intervention and law enforcement strategies, etcetera, that all have to work together in order to combat this problem.”

The rate of infants suffering from drug withdrawal is soaring in states across the country. Data released Nov. 29 by the Department of Health and Human Services in North Carolina paints a disturbing picture of this trend, showing an 893 percent increase in the number of babies born addicted to painkillers between 2004 and 2015.

The infants, born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), spend their first days suffering harsh withdrawal symptoms due to the drug abuse of their parents and must be treated in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for an average of 19 days.Doctors are still unsure what the lifetime repercussions of NAS may be for the infants, but short-term symptoms include seizures, trouble feeding, excessive crying, diarrhea and rapid breathing.

The rate of babies born suffering from drug addiction is also at a historic level nationally, increasing five-fold across the U.S. between 2003 and 2012, fueled by the opioid epidemic.The National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), released its first preliminary report in August giving an accounting of drug overdose deaths in 2016.

The CDC estimates that drug deaths rose by more than 22 percent in 2016, with 64,070 Americans suffering a fatal overdose that year, driven primarily by fentanyl.Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental death for Americans under 50.

Two Baltimore-Area Private School #Teachers, Married, Accused of #Sexual Misconduct with Minors

http://baltimorefishbowl.com/ An English teacher at the McDonogh Upper School has been let go due to what the school’s headmaster described as “sexual relations with a minor more than a decade ago” – less than a week after the teacher’s wife was arrested on sexual charges involving a teenage boy.

In a letter sent out to McDonogh School families on Tuesday, headmaster Charles Britton said he learned over the weekend that Michael Reddy, an English instructor at the Upper School, allegedly engaged in sexual relations with a non-student who was under 18 years old more than 10 years ago. Reddy “is no longer employed by McDonogh” and is barred from campus, Britton said.

The headmaster said he had reported Reddy to unspecified authorities. School spokeswoman Nina Sinnott said in an email Friday that the report was filed with Baltimore County police.

Britton said school administrators do not believe Reddy engaged in any sexual misconduct at the school, where he previously worked from 2008 to 2013 and was re-hired again this year.

“However, as always, if you have information regarding improprieties by Mr. Reddy, or anyone else, that jeopardize the physical and emotional welfare of members of our community, I encourage you to contact me or School Counselor Marie Allee, Ph.D,” he said.

In an unusual twist, Reddy’s wife, Alyssia Reddy, who worked briefly as a substitute teacher at McDonogh in 2011 and was recently employed at the St. Paul’s School for Girls in Lutherville, was arrested on sexual assault and other charges last week for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old boy.

Police in Bucks County, Pa., say they received a report that Alyssia, 28, and the boy had engaged in intercourse at a public park in Solebury Township this past spring. She was working for the Pennington School, a co-ed boarding school in New Jersey, at the time, police said.

Alyssia left Pennington and was working for the St. Paul’s School for Girls this year. Solebury Township and Baltimore County police arrested her on Dec. 1, and detained her in Baltimore City. She was awaiting extradition to Pennsylvania.

Solebury Township Det. Jonathan Koretzky said in an email Thursday afternoon that Alyssia is “still in custody in Baltimore at this time,” and the department hasn’t received notice of a scheduled extradition hearing.

She had served as a sub at McDonogh for six days in all between December 2010 and June 2011, according to Britton.

“As is the case with Mr. Reddy, we have no reason to suspect that Ms. Reddy committed acts of sexual misconduct at McDonogh, but, again, if you have information regarding any wrongdoings, please contact Dr. Allee or me,” the headmaster said.

He defended the school’s hiring process, noting that administrators “carefully vet” all employees with fingerprinting and background checks, and require them to complete training with the Baltimore Child Abuse Center.

Teachers also must complete professional development programs centered on student safety, child abuse and mandated reporting, and students receive “age-appropriate education and guidance” for health and safety throughout their schooling, he said.

“I want to stress that the safety and well-being of our students is of utmost importance to all of us at McDonogh, and we remain committed to providing a safe learning environment,” Britton said.

#Florida nanny found dead in woods reportedly tortured before her murder

http://www.foxnews.com/ A nanny in Florida whose body was found in a wooded area in September was tortured before she was ultimately killed, according to reports.

Jennifer Fulford, 56, went missing on Sept. 27 and was found dead days later when her body was spotted by a police helicopter.

Fulford “was stabbed and suffocated before being dumped in the woods,” the Orlando Sentinel reported, citing court documents. Her wrists and ankles were also reportedly

She was last seen the morning of Sept. 27 leaving a dental office in Winter Park. Her husband, Robert, had posted on Facebook that his wife’s purse was found inside a home where she worked as a nanny, and she didn’t pick up her boss’s son from school, prompting concern.

Robert Fulford had detected a $300 withdrawal from their joint bank account that night. Scott Edward Nelson, 53, was later caught on surveillance footage using Fulford’s ATM card.

Nelson was initially arrested on Oct. 1 in Jacksonville for violating his probation, according to the Orlando Sentinel. But he is now being charged in connection to Fulford’s murder, the newspaper reported.

Nelson sent a letter to a federal judge in November claiming that he didn’t murder Fulford, writing, “Allegedly, I kidnapped/murdered a woman in Winter Park and have spoken to no law enforcement. Their [sic] are many things they don’t know!”

However, police say days after Nelson sent that letter, he confessed to the crimes.

Police reportedly found Fulford’s car abandoned in a parking lot days after she was killed. In the truck was a blood-stained towel, a t-shirt and a watch, which Fulford was wearing the day she was murdered. The blood on the towel reportedly matched Fulford’s DNA.

Nelson was charged with murder, kidnapping, carjacking, burglary, robbery with a deadly weapon and hindering communication with law enforcement, according to the Sentinel.

SOUTH #KOREA’S ‘DECAPITATION UNIT’ WILL USE SUICIDE DRONES AND GRENADE MACHINE GUNS TO ELIMINATE KIM JONG UN

http://www.newsweek.com/ A newly established South Korean army brigade known as the “decapitation unit” has been allocated 340 million won ($310,000) to purchase equipment such as drones and grenade machine guns.

On Wednesday, the country’s Ministry of National Defense announced the budget for the unit, intended to eliminate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The figure was a small fraction of the 42.2 trillion won (nearly $40 billion) budget the ministry was awarded for 2018, but officials said the budget for the unit will increase in the future.

“The money will be spent on purchasing equipment for the special forces,” a defense official said, quoted in The Korea Herald. “The equipment includes suicide drones, surveillance drones and grenade machine guns.”

The ministry formed the long-anticipated unit on December 1. It is made up of 1,000 soldiers from the army’s special forces command, which is tasked with getting rid of the North Korean war command in case of conflict.

The special brigade will need additional assets, such as low-flying aircraft to transport the unit into action, before becoming fully operational. The ministry said it would carry out a purchasing plan over the next year and increase the budget as needed. “A total of 26 billion won [$24 million] will be spent to enhance the unit’s warfighting capability,” the official was quoted as saying.

The South Korean defense budget for next year increased by 7 percent from 2016—the greatest expansion in the military budget since 2009. The “decapitation unit” was not the only addition to the country’s military, as the army plans to form a weaponized drone combat unit to conduct surveillance operations and mobilize launch attacks if necessary.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in strongly opposed the possibility of a preemptive strike on North Korea despite Pyongyang’s repeated missile test launches. Reacting to North Korea’s launch of a new, more powerful intercontinental ballistic missile on November 29, Moon urged Pyongyang to give up its pursuit of nuclear missiles capable of reaching the U.S. and return to the negotiation table.

“Should North Korea complete developing a ballistic missile that reaches other continents, the situation could deteriorate beyond repair,” Moon said, according to chief press secretary Yoon Young-chan, quoted in South Korean news agency Yonhap. “We must prevent the possibility that North Korea may misjudge the situation and threaten us with its nukes, or the United States may consider a pre-emptive strike.”

The U.S. and South Korean air forces are currently engaged in five-day aerial drills involving 230 aircraft taking part in simulated strikes. Pyongyang denounced the drills as provocations that were pushing the Korean Peninsula to “the brink of nuclear war.” North Korea’s foreign ministry reiterated the country’s opposition to the drills in a statement on Wednesday, saying the outbreak of a war on the peninsula had become “an established fact” and a matter of when, not if.

#Georgia #Teacher Allegedly Had #Sex With Teen Boy and Knowingly Exposed Him to HIV


http://people.com/ A Georgia teacher has been suspended from his job after authorities allege he had sex last week with a teenage boy in a public park.

PEOPLE confirms that Tracy Wayne Crosby, 42, has been charged in Georgia’s Camden County with solicitation of sodomy and reckless conduct by a person with HIV.

Crosby, who lives in Waycross, has also been fired from his job as a part-time law enforcement officer for the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.

PEOPLE learns from authorities that the alleged victim, 16, left home on Nov. 28, but did not tell his mother where he was going.

Police allege Crosby picked the boy up and drove him to the nearby park.

The worried mother searched for her son, allegedly finding him with Crosby at the park, where police allege they were having sexual intercourse.

The mother called 911 to report the alleged incident, and police tracked down Crosby the next day. He has been behind bars ever since on $150,000 bail.

PEOPLE was unable to determine if Crosby has appeared before a judge to plea to the charges.

He does not have an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

A statement from the Ware County School District, obtained by PEOPLE, states Crosby is on leave.

“The school district is fully cooperating with all law enforcement agencies and the Professional Standards Commission,” stated LeBrun. “No further information will be available until the police investigation and the district investigation have been completed.”

#Florida Pair Allegedly Left Child Alone in Trailer for Months

A Florida pair is facing charges after police say they left a child to live alone in a trailer, often without food, for months.

Jennifer Nichols, 34, and 32-year-old Joshua Sanders were arrested on Nov. 30, according to the Pensacola News Journal. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office has charged the pair with one count of neglecting a child.

A witness told the sheriff’s office she began renting the trailer to Nichols and Sanders in September and later realized that only a child — and not the pair — lived there, the News Journal reported.

The woman said she tried to take care of the child, whose age was not revealed, but she could not provide as much support as the boy needed, according to the report.

The child had not attended school in months and told the police he sometimes talked with Sanders and Nichols, who would give him a small amount of money and a few meals, but he often could not reach them, according to the News Journal.

The Florida Department of Children and Families took the child into custody.
