Personally I dont think he should be charged with his death. Derek is the one who decided to buy the drugs, he decided to do the drugs and in result of his poor choices, he died from them. If I smoked or drank and ended up dying from those bad decisions on my part, do we sue the cigarette comp or the makers of the alcohol ? No! Because they were our choices.

Did Perez physically hold Derek down and forcefully inject him with these substances. Sounds like a poor choice was made on the part of the deceased.

Yes, be very Thankful it wasn't someone close to your heart. From what I read was this was this guys medicine and he took it out and sold it. ? That's against the law, then someone loved one dies and people don't think he should be held accountable of it . There's more that should be brought into this. If they weren't so screwed up maybe this never would of happened.

I guess you can say you made a good point. However, it's invalid. The reason being, Are cigarettes or alcohol illegal? Also, that being said bars can actually be liable for severing people that are to intoxicated. Which could result in punishable crimes.

Derek was my cousin, more like my little brother! Yes, he did make a poor choice but the point is selling your prescription drugs to someone else is illegal. If we get the dealers off the street, then it will make it a lil harder to get the drugs and save a few lives. Would you have said the same if it were your family member in his situation?

No matter our opinions on whether or not the guy should be punished for the death, I implore anyone reading this to consider the idea that this criminal has a local teenage kid who is suddenly without parents, who faces so much uncertainty, who could use compassion, who desperately needs support from our community; not to be devastated that people will think he's "bad, too". Let's show a young person that they can turn out better...that they are not the product only of a bad lot in life; that they can be so much more than they've been exposed to! Send a card, a note as if it were a child you love going through the same!, School is almost out- send him a certificate for a haircut or a new pair of shoes for hiking or bike riding this summer! Send it to the address in the news article! Let's take care and show love in an effort to help and bring any chance of positivity. Please.

Cigarette companies have been sued for peoples deaths. And I would agree that drug dealers shouldn't be held accountable for someone's poor choice....except for the fact a drug dealer should know what is in what they are selling and how potent the drug is. You should know what you're selling as well as knowing what you're buying. Dancing with the devil never ends well.
