“If you say you’re going to f***ing kill someone, you should f***king kill them.”

Last weekend, death row inmate Scott Dozier apparently decided he was done waiting for Nevada to kill him: Prison officials found him hanging from a bed sheet in his cell.

In 2018, Dozier was set to become the first person in the U.S. executed with fentanyl. Then his execution was postponed. Gianna Toboni reported on the case for VICE on HBO.

yaknow wha im sayin
For those wondering about any updates on him on the 5th of January 2019 he killed himself in his cell. Wonder what could have been of him if his life was different.
Alexandra Fraiser
He hanged himself
I hope he made his peace with his maker, before the end, God willing. Only God knows, why some he brings to the Lord n others do not even think about it.

Zimbabwe's Codeine Cough Syrup The Last Days of Death Row Inmate 1 day ago   10:39

Zimbabwe is at risk of losing its youth to codeine cough syrup, as the addiction epidemic has already engulfed what the experts estimate could be over half the country’s young people. Despite the growing problem, Zimbabwe’s government has not yet opened rehabilitation clinics, meaning addicts are often sent to prison or psychiatric wards.

The cough syrup, often of the brand BronCleer, is imported illegally from South Africa, and is sold on every street corner, in bars, school yards and on busses for as little as $3 a bottle.

We meet current and former users, as well as the NGOs pushing the government to open up rehabs, to find out why cough syrup has become the drug of choice for so many young Zimbabweans.

This documentary was produced with help from DanChurchAid.
