  1. Opioids is not cocaine. Cocaine would have created a hyper response. This is confusing to use an opioid reversal medication on a cocaine victim is not common. It sounds like it would be dangerous.

  2. When that OD victim that you are detoxing in your jail cell goes into seizures and dies, will you be charged for murder? Just detoxing in a jail cell is not a cure for addiction.

  3. I agree that this lady needs to clean up and does not deserve children, but filling up our jails with drug addicts is not the answer. When they walk out of that jail, they are still addicts.

  4. 99° will kill you in less than 30 minutes in a car. It can easily reach 130° with the windows up within 20 minutes in Florida especially if the windows aren't tinted.

  5. I was 12 when I had oral surgery and was given opiates, bottles of them…12yrs old…no I wasn't using illegal drugs, I was 12 in the 80s, don't tell me it was my responsibility and my fault. I spent 23yrs as an opiate addict and have been clean 9+yrs now… on my own I got clean…but addicted I got with rge help of legal doctors not illegal ways. wrong sheriff!!!!!

  6. Not sure whats heroic about it. whats he supposed to do. Cops around here even rescue dogs in that situation.. Heroic is way too strong a word.. Dont get me wrong I LIKE Judd. I just get tired of his over statement. Like the way he brags about his detectives… Gag me with a spoon!! Hell of a Sheriff though…And as far as Narcaine its used every day…

  7. They call covid a pandemic. It can’t begin to compare to the drug epidemic. Rare and blessed is the family not affected. It seems so overwhelming. I pray for you and our brave deputies every day.

  8. This sheriff needs to get into a position where he can do more than he can do here. I would suggest being a State Senator, Representative, or even Governor.
    Part of that woman's punishment should be a non-reversible sterilization. If not, go to jail until she can't have any more babies. Her two older children and her baby should be put up for adoption. She has no business having children. There are probably millions of women that are in similar situations and also should not be permitted to have children. Most of their kids wind up mentally handicapped, fail in school, have a life of crime, and wind up in our prison systems. We need to stop this insanity!

  9. I disagree with him the Sheriff when he said addiction begins when YOU take illegal drugs, that may be some of the cases but alot of people addicted to drugs staryed when the doctors gave them pills for surgeries or what have you and over prescribed drugs to every day law abiding citizens. The drug epidemic in this country is from doctors over prescribing drugs then blaming it on the people the doctors got addicted so he needs to refrase what he said thete.

  10. Cocaine isa strong stimulant and will not make you pass out and is not a opiate all though heroin is. She probably knowingly took an opiate but lied about it due to the stigma associated with it. Cocaine is never cut with opiates because the dealer would loose money and the purpose of cutting is to increase money. There are cheaper stimulants than coke that are usually used. That being said it is possible.Though we will never arrest our way out of the drug epidemic we must look deeper into ourselves to find the true answer to this problem. I think no one would want drugs and they would also cease to be addictive if people had proper value and true family values. There is no drug that can touch the high of being engaged with truly meaningful activities and being able to except the good and the bad . There are some of us that are addicted to material and some addicted to power and others hurting others these addictions require no drugs but are just as or more harmful than drugs and just as much of an epidemic these drugs can be. The roots of these addictions are the same roots that drug addiction comes from. To be content is not to be happy or depressed it is the ability to except the bad with the good and still be content and willing to work towards a better future no matter what happens too you. Addiction is a escape so what are we escaping that’s so bad that drugs are better than.

  11. IT IS ADDICTION! So u think shaming her is going to deter someone? This woman needs help, no one said it’s non violent, SHE HAS A PROBLEM! But THIS isn’t the answer, if it was, there wouldn’t be the problem there is! So we have the biggest population of prisoners BUT STILL have this drug problem! I like him most of the time, but this throw everyone in jail crap is just modern day slavery, and us tax payers are footing the bill.

  12. I suppose this is the sort of public official we are used to. Does he know that in California, possession of heroin, meth, and cocaine, are felonies, not misdemeanors? Marijuana is legal, and because of that the crime rate has plummitted. After all, there is no profit it it any more, therefor the criminals have abandoned it as a source of income. So…is he mistaken, or is he lying to support his rant? Using the president as an example, who knows?

  13. I AM WITH YOU SHERIFF WE FOUGHT THE DRUG TRADE FOR YEARS NOW ITS FREE WHAT GIVES? I KNOW YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PRES, FOR IT BUT IT IS WRONG TO JUST GO SOME QUACK AND GET IT. I LIVE IN OK AND IT ALSO IS A PROBLEM HERE TO. I LOST MY SON IN LAW TO DRUGS HE WAS A COP AND BLEW HIS BRAINS OUT BECAUSE OF IT.

  14. @7:00 minutes he says "it was a very sic..scary situation" no a very sick and sad situation. Thank God for him saving those babies. She could have taken the asphalt challenge and it would have been fine by me. And trust me if she was white ide feel the same way. One less welfare recipient

  15. This isn't a non violent event, but someone overdosing by themselves is non-violent. Stop being childish with the god's grace talk. Real problems need real solutions.

    The war on drugs didn't work with you guys locking up the addicts. Decades later and he's still on stupid ideas. He's good with pedos, but dumb on drugs.

  16. Sheriff could you imagine in California nowadays (2020) EVERYONE going to jail or prison for ANY drug offense. We also DO have the ability to up grade them to a felony if the people feel it's necessary

  17. It pisses me off that people are abusing OxyContin. I have significant arthritis and pain. There are many times I would not be able to sleep or function normally without pain control. These addicts have made it difficult for people like me to get what we need. I would be more than happy to not need medication, but I hurt like hell.

  18. So your town has multiple overdoses a day so you obviously have a drug epidemic and instead of getting people into treatment and get them the help they need to become active members in society, you put the kids in the system and put the woman in jail? thats not cool

    it also sounds like you arent really happy shes still alive. calling her an absolute monster for being a drug addict. yes, putting children in danger is awful but maybe you should change your social services to HELP these people so children arent put in these situations to begin with

  19. I’m a paramedic. I can tell you narcan will have zero effect on a cocaine overdose Either it was an opioid she OD on or there was another substance mixed with cocaine. .

  20. That cocaine must have been mixed with some kind of opiates because narcan doesn't work on cocaine. Luckily the officer had the narcan and used it just in case.

  21. Imagine walking up to that scene..kids smacking the pregnant mother, in an attempt to wake her up… Can't fathom the baggage that these officers take home with them.

  22. She needs to be charged I have a granddaughter who is addicted to drugs has been in and out of jail she was pregnant and still snorting drugs and the baby was very sick and she didn't think she didn't think she did anything wrong

  23. THEY WANT TO CHANGE LEGISLATION WITH THE LOW LEVEL NON VIOLENT EVENT, DRUG'S, BECAUSE – THE PIGGY'S GOT HIS TROTTER'S IN THE "POT" AND HE AIN'T GOING TO GET HIS SHARE OF THE BACON, IF THE LEGISLATION'S NOT CHANGED…

  24. Thank God someone was alert and noticed and got police to help and saved those precious children!!. Notice it was A WHITE POLICEMAN WHO SAVED THAT STUPID DRUGUSING BLACK WOMAN and her PRECIOUS LITTLE BLACK CHILDREN. PLUS HER UNBORN CHILD!!!!

  25. You are so right Sheriff Grady Judd!! My grandson is now in drug treatment program through going to jail . Thank God he was caught and put in jail before he got a bad drug dose sooner or later!! Now he is clean and on the road to recovery!! I truly thank God and the law enforcement drug programs!

  26. Makes you wonder if the other overdose incidents earlier that day were related to the “last buy” she made. Possibly a related drug dealer lacing various drugs with fentanyl or something else? Too many coincidences are not a coincidence. God bless Sheriff Grady Judd & all the others that fight against these drugs being put out on the streets. Wish we had a Sheriff like Grady in our state! Oklahoma seems to be getting worse & worse!
