Another Unattended Death



UPDATE: Thursday afternoon

The District Attorney's office has identified the deceased as Amherst resident Adam Gamble, age 32.  The case remains under investigation.  Gamble has a previous arrest record with APD.

The District Attorney's office has confirmed Amherst Police, AFD and the Massachusetts State Police attached to the DA's office responded to Bertucci's yesterday for an unattended death.

According to DA spokesperson Mary Carey, "The death appears non-suspicious, and non-criminal in nature and the investigation is ongoing."

I asked if a drug overdose would still qualify as "non-suspicious and non-criminal in nature," and she said "yes."

The Amherst Town Clerk recorded 217 total deaths in 2015 and so far this year, 9 (not counting this most recent one).

217 deaths? We've got to stop this. I'm a grandparent and it may get me one of these days.

Larry, is that number right? 217? Even Springfield hasn't had that many.

Larry Kelley said...

That number 217 is for all deaths, not just unattended or drug OD deaths.

Hard to say exactly how many OD deaths we've had since nobody wants to talk about it.

217 deaths? You do know that people die, don't you?

Larry Kelley said...

Yes. And now you know how many.

If possession of Heroin is criminal, why isn't an OD?

Do you know this was an OD? Sometimes people die of natural causes, such as a heart attack, embolism, etc. even at young ages.

Larry Kelley said...

No I don't know, because officials refuse to comment.

My (protected) sources however ...

So do you know or not? If you don't know anything than this whole thing is stirring up a pot for nothing. Which is it?

Don't pretend you have information when you don't. And if you don't, than your post is alarmist when it lacks any factual basis. 217 people died in Amherst last year!!! Yeah, so what. People die every year. People are also born. Not exactly newsworthy.

Larry Kelley said...

When you die I promise not to cover it.

There is a tremendous increase in morbidity among "white trash" in the US that has no historical parallels among capitalist industrialized democracies. It is within an order of magnitude of the demographic catastrophe during the collapse of the Soviet Union.

An economic crisis must at least be examined factually for there to be "hope" for social change. In my view, as a walking casualty of America's streets, prisons, and mental institutions, such as they remain, Mr. Kelly should be affirmed for the nobility of his efforts here.

Ralph Reed may have a point, but not the one he makes -- if the morbidity increase resembles that of the USSR's collapse, perhaps it is because this country is also collapsing. I heard Newt Gingrich recently state that this country is splitting like it did in the 1960's, and it is going to get a lot worse before abating.

There are lot of pissed-off white men who realize that we are less equal than others & are tired of being told we must ride in the back of the bus. Yes, The Short Lobster Company is successful, yes there are lots of white men who aren't drug-addicted "white trash" (IMHO, a racial slur), but it doesn't meas we aren't pissed off.

America circa 2016 is chillingly similar to Germany circa 1930 -- The Weimar Republic...

Germany was paying reparations to the French (whom they saw as a different race of people, non-Aryans with a vastly different language) while we are paying reparations in the form of social services & welfare that is bankrupting this country. Much as we are funding out reparations by borrowing from China, Germany was borrowing from the USA, much as the American speculative bubble exploded in October of 1929, the Chinese speculative bubble has exploded (the ChiComs are just covering it up) -- and our ability to borrow will dry up too.

We could easily have an American Holocaust -- all of the due process, equal protection and natural law stuff that would prevent it were destroyed by the left as a means to accomplish social engineering goals, likewise the Jewish-Christian morality upon which this country was built, which was more than just Leviticus 18:22 -- it's also "love thy neighbor" and "thou shalt not kill."

What minorities (racial, sexual, etc.) need to understand is the meaning of the word "minority", as in "less than 'majority'." The 'tyranny of the majority' is a terrifying thing, and without the Natural Law protection of "Life, Liberty, & Property" seen as God-given individual rights, well....

Dr. Ed said...

One needs to remember that the Holocaust did not start with the Jews.

It started with the disabled, first they murdered everyone in the insane asylums, and then they rounded up & murdered all the mentally retarded.

I've met someone who was a girl in Austria when this happened, and her description of the people's attitude of "it being for the (collective) best" and their nonchalant dismissal of their murdered friends & neighbors is exactly the attitude Enku Geylae had when I raised concerns to her regarding her secretive Star Chamber which tries students in absentia -- without even informing them, let alone giving them a chance to tell their side of the story.

Enku's right -- "everyone else's doing it to" -- and not just colleges anymore.
This is why I say that an American Holocaust is quite possible. No one is "speaking up."

American Holocaust. Gimme a break.
