IMAGE OF A NONSENSE DEATH
IMAGES OF ANNOUCED DEATH
This is the picture of two young British men killed after snorting heroin in Amsterdam. Shaun Brotherston, 20, and Bradley Price, 21, were celebrating a 21st birthday bash in the Dutch city when suddenly find the death in the corner.
Two non sense deaths due to drugs.
Shaun and Bradley, both from Plymouth, Devon, were former students of Tamarside Community College, now the Marine Academy, in Plymouth. Shaun was at the University of St Mark and St John, and also worked at the Future Inn hotel. Keen amateur footballer Shaun was described as a 'lovely lad' by his Plymouth Falcons team manager. The club's game tomorrow has been postponed and the league is to hold a minute's silence for the dead men who both lived in Plymouth, Devon. Falcons manager Alan Potter said: "Shaun was such a lovely lad, well liked by everyone and a really well respected member of the team. "He was superb player and quite a few of his friends are on the team - they're absolutely devastated. "He was an excellent winger. He will be sadly missed. He was out there celebrating his birthday, everyone is deeply shocked." Police spokesman Rob van der Veen said on Wednesday: "We did a quick test to find out what kind of powder it was. It wasn't cocaine, it was an opiate - in this case, white heroin. "We took the sample to the Dutch forensic institute and they found out that the contents of this material is the same contents as other material that we already seized in other cases where people got sick." He said investigators believe the men were targeted by the same street dealer, or ring of dealers, involved in the death of another Briton last month. Local authorities have pleaded with tourists to steer clear of street pushers, and since October have distributed warning signs and flyers at hotels and hostels, main squares and at Amsterdam's Centraal railway station. The pamphlets warn: "The last couple of weeks several tourists were hospitalized with severe health problems after using cocaine bought on the street ... Research has revealed that the cocaine used was not cocaine but white heroin."
They also remind visitors that in Amsterdam "you won't be arrested for taking drugs".
Announced death because all young peple are ready to try, to experience, to test, drugs... all media speak about, some friends are about to experiment others are users... so, society must re-think their standards and laws, to prevent this nos sense deaths.
