Rikki, I remember the media reporting that the authorities concluded there may have been a simple assault days before the boy was taken to the hospital.
Sheriff Jones of the KSCO also stated "Although drugs were involved, our investigation has revealed he did not go there to purchase drugs," Jones said.
"No trauma is observed at the time of the autopsy," states the report from the Knox County Medical Examiner's office. "Final determination of the cause and manner of death is pending further investigation and ancillary studies."
The accuracy of your statement that the boy “died last week after a month-long struggle to survive a drug-related assault,” is not the conclusion of the authorities. This looks to be a simple drug overdose and making these types of drugs legal could only increase the number of young deaths from overdose.
It is good to see you have a conservative side in your statement, “I am also an advocate of free markets and personal liberty.” Unless by free markets you advocate unfettered drug dealing, and by personal liberties, you mean the right to abuse yourself freely with substance abuse.
I can also agree with your statement, “I do advocate rethinking our country's drug policies.” The laws should be stricter.
