I'm not gonna lie. It sounds awful and all, but I can't get over how every single headline is the exact same, and the opening paragraphs are the same barring a few word changes. Reminds me of a post that both sides are so manipulative and push the same narrative no matter what.

This is a good thing. The sacklers are no longer immune to prosecution.

That family needs to get lynched, financially and literally. I’ve lost a good friend from opioids

They really do, everybody’s lost people from what they did. I’ve lost 2 cousins and sister, rural Utah was hit pretty hard

If they aren't made completely destitute and barred from ever running a business then there is no justice and maybe some people should do that because our system is fucking WHACK dude

Wait, you’re not understanding that correctly. The judge tossed the deal that GAVE them the protections, so now they can be sued. This is a good thing for victims, the Sackler family is trying to appeal it.
