I’m here to clean your street … would you like a Vicodin?

Hilarious shit first brought to my attention by reader Anthony and now being reported by the PG:

The foreman of the Redd Up Crew was busted for selling Vicodin at $5 bucks a pop.

He was hired shifted to this position by Bobby O’s administration and had this to say:

Kurt R. Staudenmaier, 36, of the North Side, is charged with possession with intent to deliver prescription medication.

According to an affidavit that supports his arrest, Mr. Staudenmaier told the officer that he had 19 Vicodin pills that he sells for $5 each.

“If a friend needs some and they don’t have any, I’ll sell them just to help them out,” Mr. Staudenmaier is quoted in the affidavit as saying.

Aw. What a great friend! He’s just looking out for the urgent medicinal needs of his friends.

Dude, a true friend would have given them away for free.

And the fact that the man in charge of cleaning the city’s drug houses up is also running drugs? The word is “IRONIC”.

He hasn’t been punished by Lukey yet, but I’m sure Lukey will start “moving forward” on that any second now.

    It’s a shame a good program is sullied by someone’s mistake. What is the deal with city employee and drug sales: martinez, Chatiqua Good, & this guy?

    Speaking of redd up, who is paying for all those new billboards?

    I just find this funny, because you know this guy has political ties and won’t get fired. Hell, he may even get a promotion.

    Vicodin goes for $5 a pill?

    I might not have to take that seasonal position at Bath & Body Works after all.

    “Mistake”????????????????

    NO, NO, NO. A mistake is doing or not doing something in error or unknowingly.
    This twit did not make a mistake.

    Why is anyone surprised that the city hires and rehires scum like this …. nothing has changed. Its politics as usual. On another note: At least one City Council member has the sense to speak up about Regan not being qualified to do the job Lukey is appointing him to. The City of Pittsburgh government never ceases to amaze me. I am glad I am not a resident or spend any money in the city.

    The O’Connor administration DID NOT HIRE this employee. They just shifted him from one part of the job to another. Don’t make them out to sound like the bad guys here.

    They didn’t hire him but they did promote him and they promoted him knowing he had a drug problem.

    I am not taking issue with that. The post incorrectly states that he was hired by O’connor.

    Hey, I loved Bobby O and thought this city was moving up when he took office. But I do have a problem with the fact that these types of employees are not dealt with properly, in fact, they are rewarded in ways. But this not only happens in the city government. Nope, it is deep within county government as well and airport employees.

    I am really worried about the medications of many people use… thats the reason because show that theme to you… The Drugs like the VICODIN

    the most important things about vicodin

    Vicodin (Hydrocodone or dihydrocodeinone, not to be confused with dihydrocodeine) is a pain
    killer most commonly seen as a white tablet with the name “Vicodin,” “Vicodin ES,” or
    “Vicodin HP” imprinted on one side. It shares its characteristics with many other drugs in
    chemistry and form
    Vicodin is most commonly prescribed for persons experiencing pain after surgery or intense
    pain. It helps calm a person down and increases their ability to relax and forget about
    painful ailments (which speeds up recovery)

    In the same calification we can find drugs like

    the Xanax ( Alprazolam ) is an anti-anxiety agent benzodiazepine used primarily for short-term
    relief of mild to moderate anxiety and nervous tension. Alprazolam is also effective in the
    treatment of activity depression or panic attacks. It can also be useful in treating
    irritable bowel syndrome and anxiety due to a neurosis,

    The Ativan (Lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine with CNS depressant, anxiolytic and sedative
    properties. Peak serum concentrations of free lorazepam after oral administration are
    reached in 1 to 6 hours.

    Vicoprofen is used for short-term relief of pain. It is not recommended for such chronic conditions as arthritis.
    This medication is taken by mouth, usually one tablet every 4 to 6 hours as necessary for pain.

    you can find more information about these themes and another ones in our website http://www.crdrx.com

    Have a great day

    If you’re a blogger (or a blog reader), you’re painfully familiar with people who try to raise their own websites’ search engine rankings by submitting linked blog comments like “Visit my discount pharmaceuticals site.” This is called comment spam, we don’t like it either, and we’ve been testing a new tag that blocks it. From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel=”nofollow”) on hyperlinks, those links won’t get any credit when we rank websites in our search results. This isn’t a negative vote for the site where the comment was posted; it’s just a way to make sure that spammers get no benefit from abusing public areas like blog comments, trackbacks, and referrer lists. http://www.gordoniihoodia.net

    Beyond criticism, we experience that blogs are the simplest way to express ones feeling about the topic being discussed. You just have to put your fingers on keys and write the first thing that comes to your mind and you can see it up, visible to hundreds of thousands of people, the very next moment.
