The World’s Most Unfair Line Up? Two Older Men Sought In Theft Of Viagra

drugsPolice are seeking these two men who held up a medical clinic at gunpoint to steal hundreds of dollars’ worth of Viagra and other drugs. With that same Viagra pills, they might not be hard to spot.

The men burst into the clinic with a semi-automatic weapon and a handgun. They took 56 Viagra pills worth $1,700. They also took Xanex, a muscle relaxant; Norco, a pain killer and codeine-laced cough syrup, valued at $400. Both are described as being in their late-50s One was wearing a Tasmanian Devil T-shirt.

If these pills were for personal use, it could be interesting in how the police would do a fair line up for these particular felons.

  1. Somewhere not too far from Bagram, US Airbase near Kabul, my friend and I were working on a local project and invited to the house of an elder (man). His toothless smile still tickles me till this day. After sharing on a meal, Afghan style, the elder introduced his two wives and a lot of children, his children. After his family leaves and we’re drinking tea he asks the interpreter a question which makes the latter laugh and look at me. I insist the interpreter (an Afghan-American) translates and there it was: Did I have some of the little blue pills with me? Okay, I knew about Viagra but it was the last place I’d expected anyone know about it and I said no, I had some aspirin or advil, showing off the pills. The elder rejected it and was visibly frustrated. It was only a few minutes later I figured he was talking about Viagra as my interpreter explained. The American military was rewarding collaborators with the little blue pills I found out. If Paul will work from now on to keep birth control (of any kind) free, I’d be willing to work on keeping Viagra free.
    War and sex: the male half of this Earth never tires of obsessing about its penis. And then there are people who believe we were created separately from all other animals; what a hoot.

    1. Els DL – I will join you in your quest for the Holy Blue Pill. Especially since it seems women have a second sexual awakening in their mid-80s.

    Dredd – speak for yourself. 🙂
    =====================
    Keep your pseudo science to yourself.

    It stinks.

  3. Dredd – regardless of how many articles you write on it, symbolic racism is neither symbolic or racism. It is only an excuse for “publish or perish.”

  4. $30 a pill begs the question who is robbing whom?

    Surely we can find a better way to finance drug research than the patent system.

    … Older black men abuse codeine more than any other demographic.

    ================================
    Is that racist or some other malformed opinion …

    “… codeine abuse has a price tag of over $484 billion on an annual basis … Codeine and its abuse are becoming increasingly more common today. It is estimated that approximately 33 million people in America are using codeine for non-medical purposes each year”

  6. Nick, a possible theory is that the codeine cough syrup w/ grape juice combo tastes a lot like Fred Sanford’s Ripple

  7. Well these AARP robbers are going to be having some Purple Drank as well as non flaccid sex. Older black men abuse codeine more than any other demographic. It’s always interested me how certain drugs attract certain demographics. Men smoke, snort and inject more, women LOVE the pills. But, mixing codeine cough syrup w/ grape juice is a uniquely black male phenomenon. There have been several black NFL football players who have been addicted to Purple Drank. Opiates are rampant in the NFL. Trainers walk through the locker room w/ jars full. The player holds up the number of fingers and that’s how many the trainer gives them.

    Being a pharmacist has become as dangerous as being a convenience store clerk. I have a neighbor w/ 2 pharmacists in the family. It is not an urban problem. Even rural pharmacies and small time pharmacies get hit. These guys pack.

  8. Could this crime be motivated by lack of ACA coverage?

    Meanwhile, the ACA also impacts Medicare beneficiaries, as seniors who reach the “donut hole,” or coverage gap in Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs),
    will continue to receive discounts and pay an increasingly smaller portion of prescription costs until 2020.

    In 2014, once the Medicare beneficiary and their plan have spent $2,850 on covered drugs (the combined amount plus your deductible), the patient is in the coverage gap
    and needs to pay for their drug costs out-of pocket until they reach a total of $6,455 in spending.

  9. If Viagra was free like birth control, they would not be having to hold up the drug store.

  10. These guys must be hard-up for money.

    I believe the gun on the left (white shirt) is a 9mm Uzi Full Sized Pistol or a similar clone. (most likely Semi-Auto) but I cannot be certain given the quality of the photos/video.

  11. Doing all this in front of a camera. They really pulled a boner. If they eat any of those pills and then get caught, how will they make restitution? Right now what are they doing?

  12. Too bad they didn’t know about generic Sildenafil Citrate, about 100mg for a dollar or two from India. Dumb crooks!

  13. We can’t condone crime, but at approximately $30 a pill no wonder they look angry.

    BTW, the handgun on the right is also semi-automatic. The weapon on the left looks scary but there is little effective difference in the two.
