"Roll Tide," says Teacher Accused of Being High On Heroin in Class

November 1, 2013 at 9:15a    by DJ Byrnes    

This happened in PITTSBURGH of all places. Seriously, you think you've scraped the bottom of the Alabama fan barrel, and then out of nowhere, it spits out a guy like this.

I know we all have some stupid, crazy fans, but anytime I see somebody from 'Bama trolling, I'm simply going to respond by posting this video.

I thought Pburgh was oxy country

Heroin is oxy's cheaper, more readily-available cousin, so this makes sense. In Marion, when they cracked down on prescription abuse, all the fiends just made the move to heroin. Opiate addiction is a vicious, vicious thing.

I remember it being called hillbilly heroin

The entire third season of Justified (I think it was the third season) revolved around Oxy, and I do believe it was called Hillbilly Heroin once or twice.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

DJ, in the immortal words of Steppenwolf, "God damn the pusher man"!
In my job I counsel a lot of people that have destroyed their lives with opiate addiction. It is, indeed, horrible.
However, the most destruction I see in families - BY FAR - is caused by alcohol.
Whatever the cause, it's always heartbreaking to see. I don't believe anyone has done so on 11W, but I never feel good when I read a story like this, no matter who it is.

That would be because alcohol is the most dangerous drug in terms of violence committed towards others while under the influence, as well as in terms of economic cost. 

Oldschoolbuck's picture

William, you are absolutely correct. Alcohol IS the most destructive substance as far as families/society are concerned.

ChazBuckeye's picture

I've been saying this for years, alcohol is the "gate way drug" not weed.  No way! 
As far as opiates, they should be destroyed, however this article may open your eyes to why it's not.  Sorry for being slightly political, but it relates.  

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

William's picture

Opiates serve as excellent analgesics, and should continue to be used, not destroyed. If people want to use/abuse them, that's their choice to do so.

I've been saying this for years, alcohol is the "gate way drug" not weed.  No way! 

Agreed. I've been an alcoholic since the age of 14 and all the dumb shit I've done was a direct result of alcohol intoxication (including experimenting with heroin and cocaine). Weed doesn't drive people into the same destructive behaviour patterns, yet it is much condemned by society while alcohol is freely advertised and widely accepted.
Edit: alcohol is and always will be my drug of choice (in moderation, of course). Marijuana, I believe has much less consequence on society and the individual however. Anything harder than those two is just plain stupid!

One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.

Perhaps he is trolling Alabama? Maybe just being a smartass. I'm not saying there aren't Alabama fans in Pittsburgh, but it seems odd. I wonder if this makes it to ESPN/SEC network?

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I've been in Alabama during football season.  After Bama and Auburn flags, the next most common ones hanging outside houses (mobile homes) in the coal - steel area?  Penn State, WV, Pitt and Marshall...  I was surprised how much of it was there, but it made sense that a lot of folks move between those areas because of the industry.

Heroin is a big problem, sadly, everywhere. In speaking to some local law enforcement here, there are a couple of big distribution areas in Columbus. These guys said high schoolers from about every school district in the area had been caught trying to buy in these areas. In the past couple of years, there have been several raids for heroin and large marijuana growing operations in very nice suburbs of Columbus. 
Last year, a home near me was raided. This is in the city of Columbus on the Upper Arlington city limit. Across the street from a school and a church. Police found a meth lab and a marijuana growing operation in the home. The worst part was three young children under the age of 5 were living in the home with their parents, who were arrested. 
i know some people were trying to laugh at the Carl Pelini story and this story today. It's not funny. It is a problem in our own community here. Sadly, it is taking a toll on many good families who deserve better.

It's too bad our society forces smoking marijuana to fall into the same category as being addicted to heroine.  

40 Degrees North's picture

When you smoke marijuana in front of your young children, you are a jackass. 

William's picture

What about smoking a cigarette in front of them? Shouldn't that make you a jackass as well? Or is that socially acceptable by some twisted logic? 

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

Yes it does (make one a jackass)...but then that's coming from someone who spent his childhood battling against his mother's smoking. Unfortunately the last ten years of her life have been a living hell as a result of that life long habit.

I think there was a $1 million marijuana bust in Pickerington where I live some time last year or maybe earlier this year

Maybe he is a Robert Foster fan who is from Pitt who is a frosh at alabama.

I wonder if this Roll Tide would make it onto that ESPN commercial.

What's more disturbing is Krokodil - pronounced crocodile, apparently is becoming more popular as a cheaper alternative to heroin. Something along the lines of gas, paint thinner, and codeine mixed and injected, causing the skin to turn green and scaly due to gangrene which oh you know, eats your flesh.

40 Degrees North's picture

Speaking of Krokodil, it looks like we had our first reported case in central Ohio.

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

I watched a couple of documentaries on Krokodil when it first started to explode across Russia. Truly some of the scariest footage I've seen. There are a number of drugs that destroy lives, but I can't think of any that destroy bodies in the same manner.

It seemed 'bath salts' would create the onset of the first zombies but now 'Krok' might take that honor.

Too bad for him this happened in the real world rather than on the Bama football team where "team votes" reign supreme haha.

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

Oldschoolbuck's picture

Wasn't that LSU, Otrain? IDK , maybe ALL the SEC teams allow the team to vote on discipline...

otrain2416's picture

ya it was LSU i was just making a general SEC reference since punishments aren't taken too seriously in that conference
