Vials of morphine were systemically stolen from a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and replaced with water and saline so that dying veterans got the wrong treatments, a longtime VA nurse told The Daily Caller.

My God... Had that been my loved one that had to die like that, I am not sure if the sun would set on another day without me going to jail for a really long time.
That's pretty sick and disgusting. The punishment for this should go well beyond what one would get for stealing pain medication. Too bad nobody is left alive to collect on the pain and suffering.
I don't even... Geez.

Dope fiends. At a certain point all that matters is the next fix.
It is very hard to break an addiction cycle, so don't start.
When you're dying in agony and that is the thing that takes away enough of the pain, this is not even drug addiction and its the seeds of the earth, we were all given medicines without middle men, GOD's PLAN, not the greedy demons.
