Here's one great example of why this country is in moral, spiritual and judicial decay. Enough drugs to kill 12 million people and at most he will do less than 7 years!?!?. He should never see the light of day again. With risk vs. reward like that, it's no wonder we have a great supply for a Fentanyl epidemic. 100,000 killed by overdose last year. Where is the outrage? If they were killed by bullets, the world would be ending!


D.A: California Man Charged With Possession of Fentanyl, Enough ‘to Kill 12 Million People’

A suspected drug dealer in Orange County, California, has been charged with possessing enough fentanyl that could kill up to “12 million people,” according to the county District Attorney’s office.

“Alfonso Gomez-Santana, 60, of Fullerton has been charged with one felony count of sale or transport of a controlled substance and two felony counts of possession of sale with intent to sell,” per the District Attorney’s office press release on Friday.

California Highway Patrol Officers arrested Gomez-Santana on Wednesday in Fullerton near South Lemon Street and Orangethorpe Avenue and found more than four kilos of fentanyl while searching his vehicle.

When officers went to go search the suspect’s home, they discovered “20 more kilos of fentanyl, $250,000 in fentanyl pills, and 122 grams of methamphetamine.”

Despite being found with “enough fentanyl to kill 12 million people,” the suspected drug dealer only faces up to six years and eight months in prison if he is convicted on all counts.

“It is unconscionable that someone who has the ability to kill 12 million people is facing just a handful of years in jail,” said Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer.

He continued:

Fentanyl is a national epidemic that killed more than 100,000 Americans last year and it’s not going to stop unless we have the tools as prosecutors to hold these drug dealers and drug manufacturers accountable for peddling death. Every parent in America should be petrified that one day they are going to walk into their child’s bedroom and find them dead because their child thought they were experimenting with recreational drugs and instead drug dealers sold them a deadly dose of fentanyl. This is not fear-mongering; this is reality – and if we don’t start strengthening penalties for drug dealers it’s going to be the reality for you or someone you love.

Breitbart News reported in May that 107,000 Americans have died due to a drug overdose death in 2021, an increase of 15 percent. Moreover, 71,000 Americans died of a fentanyl-related overdose in 2021, whereas only 58,000 perished from the same drug a year before, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Breitbart News also reported in April that border officials seized 11,200 pounds of fentanyl at the border in Fiscal Year 2021 and have already seized 5,800 pounds of fentanyl since October 1, 2021, when Fiscal Year 2022 began, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data.

“The figures indicate that fentanyl seizures under [President Joe] Biden, last year alone, have quadrupled since Fiscal Year 2019 when [former President Donald] Trump was in office, ” per Breitbart News.

In April, California authorities in Alameda County seized up to 90 pounds of fentanyl, which was worth a total of $4.2 million.

Seems like some folks that lost a family member to drug overdose would cross the line eventually.

I've long been an advocate of bringing back the gallows on the courthouse square for a long list of crimes.

Do that and use it quickly and regularly and I suspect we'll see alot of evil things go away.

Agreed. I think having enough drugs to kill 12 million people would qualify as a forfeiture of your life. I'll even volunteer to flip the switch.

Should be 12 million counts of attempted murder, that should do it.

Have heard it said that the DAILY drug overdose deaths is the equivalent of one commercial jetliner with full load of around 250 passengers crashing every day.

But not all in one place. One here......one over there......another someplace else.

So...........yawn.

Sex, drugs and rock and roll. What's not to like? Drug dealers get rich. Drug users......get poor.....and then die. Big whoop.

One could argue that the expense to care for the criminal would exceed practicality (not saying the government is practical). Then there is the over crowed issue in prison's as well. How often do you hear of a convicted murderer get off early for good behavior when the truth is they need the room?

So him having as much drugs that could kill 12 million people is worse than having enough guns and ammo that could kill 12 million people?

What a goofy comment. Possession of drugs is a crime. Possession of guns is a constitutionally guaranteed right.

And I don't know many people with 12 million rounds on hand, although I suppose it's possible.

I don't. They can kill as many of each other as they want.

Jail aint the answer, somebody else already took his place. We been doing the jail thing for a long time. Thats enough meth to get that guy a 25 year sentence under federal law. If that D.A. wants more time he could turn it over to the marshals. Just more sleight of hand to keep from admitting his own malfeasance..

Vengeance (death sentence) wont stop drug addiction either. The answer lies in addressing the demand. The hard thing. Since its hard people just keep screaming for more of what don't work.

Some say that the death penalty does not deter people from committing crimes and that may be so. But statistics show, that is drastically cuts down the number of repeat offenders.
