  Local story hightlighting a more serious problem
Posted by: thepianist - 08-02-2018, 02:19 PM - Forum: World News - Replies (1)

Aug 1, 2018...

REYNOLDSBURG, OH - Kirkersville Police Chief, James Hughes Jr., who died of an accidental fentanyl overdose allegedly took the drugs from his department's evidence room, according to officials.

Reynoldsburg Police Department Lt. Ron Wright said the department is still investigating, but evidence shows the drugs were possibly evidence in other cases.

Wright said it appears Hughes took the drugs himself from the evidence room.

"There was packaging that indicated that he was taking controlled substances from there," he said.
Hughes, 35, was found unresponsive in the bathroom of his Reynoldsburg home on May 25. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
An autopsy was conducted by the Franklin County Coroner's Office and results released July 13 indicated Hughes died of an "acute intoxication by fentanyl." 

On Wednesday night following the Kirkersville Village Council meeting, Mayor Terry Ashcraft refused to comment on matters regarding Hughes, saying he must first consult with legal counsel.

Records from the coroner's office indicate two syringes were recovered and tested for the presence of substances which may have contributed to Hughes' death. 

One syringe had no drugs in it, the other was positive for fentanyl. A plastic sandwich bag found at the scene also tested positive for cocaine and a third syringe containing a liquid was determined to be positive for fentanyl.

Hughes was named police chief on March 13 during a two-minute special village council meeting. His hiring came less than a week after the prior chief, Jeff Finley, had unexpectedly resigned, citing irreconcilable differences with Ashcraft.

Prior to his death,the village had been planning to increase Hughes' weekly schedule from 20 to 32 hours. He was making $14 an hour at the time of his death.

Hughes' checkered history was discovered by The Advocate following his hiring in Kirkersville. The mayor and village council members were reluctant or declined to answer any questions about that history, which included a misdemeanor conviction in Whitehall for disorderly conduct for a 2013 incident at a fast food restaurant drive-thru in which Hughes used a racial slur.

If the drugs were taken from the property room, no one sold Hughes' the drugs and therefore there is no one for Reynoldsburg police to charge in Hughes' death, Wright said.

Wright said when the Reynoldsburg department closes the case within the next two weeks, he plans to contact the Ohio Attorney General's Office.
"It's kind of gone beyond our level. You're talking about another agency's property room," he said. "We think the state should probably intervene."
If the attorney general's office takes the case, Wright said he believes a state-level investigator would be assigned to examine the practices and procedures of the Kirkersville Police Department.

Wright said he is not an evidence room expert, but there are proper procedures to use when maintaining an evidence room.

"There appeared to be some practices happening out there that probably someone from the state AG's office should probably look into," he said. 
Wright said this case shows no one is immune from the heroin epidemic that is impacting so much of Ohio and other parts of the country.

"It's happening at all different levels and walks of life," he said.

Edit: My own quick thought is why they are linking this to a 'heroin' epidemic. I think the 'agencies' can start getting specific that it's not 'heroine' causing the surge in deaths, but the big F. And in the long run it will be the legit pain patients who will continue to suffer the most.

  VPN - Copyright Infringement?
Posted by: FormerLurker - 08-02-2018, 02:53 AM - Forum: Suggestions & Technical - Replies (11)

Not sure if this is the best place to post this. But seemed like a reasonable spot. 

So I might of created an issue for my next door neighbor that allows me to use his internet. About a month ago I felt it was necessary and felt safer using a VPN, I read up about them and selected NORDVPN. All seemed to go well, but I think I created an issue for my buddy as two weeks after I installed it and began using it, he got a notice from his internet service provider that he was being shut off for "Copy Right Infringement" 

He asked me if I had downloaded anything, and I confessed I added a VPN and selected one from good reviews that I paid for, he was concerned I used a free one, and thought the proxy server might of caused the notice of disconnection. I live in close proximity to many networks, so to me it's a security thing, added protection such as an anti-virus. 

I've googled and found occasional instances of people claiming the same thing, being cut off by their internet provider due to copyright infringement due to using a VPN, although it seems rare from what I could find googling.  From more of what I learned they are best used in public spaces, such as coffee shops and airports.  

I never downloaded anything illegal, I did add TOR and did do some browsing on the dark web, although it was primarily legit sights and only browsed some dark web sites once or twice to see what it all looked like for curiosity reasons and see what was offered.  

I may have made the mistake by constantly leaving my VPN turned on, every time I logged on I imagine it changed my IP address and perhaps this is what raised the red flags to the internet provider. Maybe one of the IP's I used one day ended up doing something from a different VPN that downloaded something illegal? Not sure how they really work. 

I don't know enough about this stuff, and as I get free internet from my buddy, so I just got rid of it (but still kept it on my phone with no issues so far). He had to pay a fine to keep his service (no big deal he's loaded with a trust fund so he wasn't even that mad). 

Anyways, I'd really like a VPN, but am I risking it with using one to create issues once again for him? 

If anyone knows anything about VPN's and the possibility they can create these issues, please let me know, or know how to use properly.

  Hiking and Backpacking
Posted by: MoJim - 07-31-2018, 02:29 PM - Forum: The Lounge - Replies (7)

The issue of exercise and hiking has been brought up before in other threads to reduce depression and anxiety. I thought I would start a light hearted thread where hikers can share their experiences.

For myself, I've been hiking/backpacking for 45 years and completed the entire JMT (John Muir Trail 211mi)) and hope to tackle the Wonderland trail (98 mi) in Washington next year. The eastern Sierra's have been my playground from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney. After my son joined the Boy Scouts, I was coerced into a leadership position to head up our hiking outings. It was very rewarding to have this quality time with him.

If anyone would like to share then great!.

  Raneem IOP...Any Experience?
Posted by: Chris5555 - 07-31-2018, 06:03 AM - Forum: Blacklist - Replies (5)

I registered for a subscription with a site called raneem, its an IOP i happened to run across.   I got a phone call from them today and the guy seemed awful pushy, and desperate to get my credit card number so I would go ahead and subscribe, that way he could get it shipped out.   He told me they used fedex and could get it to me within 3 days, and I suggested using COD to pay for the magazine services once it arrived, he didnt like that idea and just seemed a little too pushy....Anyone have any experience with this site?  I  didnt subscribe, wanted to see if my new friends here had any experience with them?

Thanks in advance....always

  Raw Milk
Posted by: Scoobie - 07-30-2018, 07:30 PM - Forum: Diet And Supplements - Replies (5)

Hey all. So my wife has had great success with raw milk for her ulcerative colitis. It needs to be the A2/A2 protein. (original breed not over-bread cows) its easier to digest. We prefer the Dutch belted cows. It can completely put her into remission. Raw milk can heal many things like allergies, asthma, inflammation etc. Even if you are lactose intolerant you should be fine because the pasteurization process makes milk hard to digest. The big players in the dairy industry and government write articles all the time to make the public think otherwise. They act like is so dangerous but its no more dangerous than eating oysters. When I lived in Philly raw milk was easy to find at markets. Where i live now its not legal unless you join a cow share. Basically you own part of a cow and pay part of its housing and such to a farm and they give you the milk.  I also give it to my dogs when they get allergies or stomach aches or are limping. (dog is 12 years old and loves it)
Also its freakin delicious!
