Police: 7-year-old boy distributes heroin at Carrick elementary school

7-year-old kindergarten student brought stamp bags of heroin to the Roosevelt PreK-5 school in Carrick and gave some of them to classmates, calling it "the magic ticket," authorities said late today.
 
Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman Ebony Pugh said parents began calling the school this afternoon saying they found heroin in their children's belongings. City police were searching the school with drug-sniffing dogs.
 
Police said the principal found 18 bags of heroin today when he searched the kindergartner's locker and book bag. The Knoxville boy also had razors in his bag and teachers searched his bag and locker because he cut himself, Pugh said...

7 years old?  My...they are growing up fast, these days.

I'd take a good look at his parents.

Why is a 7 year old in kindergarten, why do kindergarteners have lockers, and who on earth gave him this?

Children and drugs don't mix.  Could you imagine a kindergartener on crack?  They'd literally bounce off the walls!

Oh well, parents stick their kids full of Ritalin all the time.  Maybe the kid's parents figured that Heroin would do the same thing, and they didn't have insurance!

Didn't read where this school is, but you all must not have bought much heroin or crack before in a larger city, but you are pretty much going to be served by a kid from the age of 7-12.

They work cheaply. They get nothing in terms of punishment if caught. They enjoy it.

Around me, if you see a young black kid riding around a corner on a bike, he is who is going to solicit and serve you. Whatever the package is being called is called out, you nod or what have you, you pass off your $20 or $40 to an older kid (14-15), and the younger kid serves you.

Depending on how "serious" the main trafficker is, the kids are probably vialing or bagging out the package as well, especially when the profit margin is low (the drugs have been stepped all over).

Many kids in cities where addicts don't come back to beat down someone for burning them pass off all sortsa stuff to gullible folks looking to score.

And the suicide rate among the urban male population under the age of 10 is booming. Know of an eight year old kid who took a chef knife to his stomach. At the ER, he said to the social worker, it was because nobody loved him.

Not surprised it was heroin. Very cheap nowadays. Crack, not so much.

Well you buy both on the street by price, not by weight. You just get more bang for your $20 or $40 for heroin right now.

 Cheesy Grin  No, I have not had the opportunity to buy any drugs in the city. I guess I'm just the naive country bumpkin, lol.

Whenever you are in my city, I will show you the potential and actual beauty of those very streets. Although we rank as one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in America, often hitting number one, you're pretty safe if you know what you are about. It is a weird mix. I love my neighborhood. I live in a "nicer" area.

One of the best and least romantic depictions of real on the ground law enforcement against the drug trade and the trade itself in smaller cities where crime ain't really "organized" is the series The Wire. Possibly one of the best TV series of all time. Seasons three and five are weak, but season four will definitely disabuse anyone of their pipe dreams (pardon the pun) conservative or liberal of how to handle the education and drug crisis in the inner city.

Tons of lulz of drug stories and the ridiculous "war" against them. I snicker when "head" shops get closed down around the university, but every Asian convenient store sells ready to use crack pipes for the discerning addict without problem throughout the neighborhood.

In most cities, if the drugs and the people doing and selling ain't causing much of a stir it is pretty much allowed to go on, with the occasional impotent crack down once in a while to make some PR point.

When there is a football game downtown there are more police per person than in my neighborhood on any given day. And I don't even need to follow the sports schedule to know when something important is happening for white people downtown (safest area of the county) cause the neighborhood goes mad and the dope boys and prostitutes are absolutely brazen.

Once had a house in the white trash (I mean displaced Appalachian part) of the city. Great home. Catty corner to a meth lab. Could buy any house on the street for a steal. One summer the lab blew up and it was a seller's market.

Once at a meal, my Priest's wife was recounting a film she had just seen about the Ozarks. She kept saying they were making mescaline. I eventually asked about what it looked like, the set up. I went on about how it was methamphetamine and started talking about its chemistry and various methods of manufacture and its tracing moonshine in terms of strategic manufacture in small labs throughout mountainous regions etc.

After about ten minutes, Presbystera asked what year of chemistry did we learn about such things.

Unlike the The Wire, while I like Breaking Bad, it is possibly science fiction.

What is happening with the parents today?

They are thirteen and unmarried. Just talked to a woman who is 60 and had a great, great, grandchild.

And the life expectancy of a black male in urban America is low, so there is little social pressure to remain monogamous and every reason from a biological POV to have as many kids with as many women as possible.

I've literally heard this conversation among four black girls maybe one might have been as old as 14, three of which were pushing strollers:

One girl pushing a stroller to the girl not: Your boy don't love you. You ain't got his kid.

Similar behavior in "displaced Appalachian" urban communities.
