Man Charged in Federal Court for Allegedly Possessing Enough Fentanyl to Kill Entire Population of San Francisco

Man Charged in Federal Court for Allegedly Possessing Enough Fentanyl to Kill Entire Population of San Francisco

Meanwhile, San Francisco is facing a natural disaster in the form of a bomb cyclone….in addition to the man-made one it created through its drug policies.

The last time we checked on San Francisco, city officials called for ideas to address the area’s massive drug crisis.

Yet fentanyl continues to be a deadly problem in the Bay Area. In fact, a 24-year-old man has been charged in federal court for allegedly possessing 7.8 pounds of fentanyl, which is enough to kill the entire population of that city.

Miguel Ramos was indicted in December on charges of possessing more than 400 grams of fentanyl for distribution, as well as similar charges for methamphetamine, crack cocaine and heroin. The charges stem from an October arrest in which San Francisco police allegedly found the 7.8 pounds of fentanyl, two ounces of meth and approximately one-ounce quantities of heroin and cocaine in Ramos’ backpack.

The fentanyl distribution charge carries a maximum term of life in federal prison, the court indictment says.

Ramos’ Oct. 8 arrest was publicized by San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins, who announced in a news release that Ramos had enough fentanyl to wipe out the entire population of San Francisco.

When he was arrested, federal prosecutors subsequently moved to keep Ramos in federal custody while the case was pending, arguing that fentanyl is so easy to overdose from that he was a danger to the community.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler did order Ramos detained without bail, but did not seem swayed by federal prosecutors’ argument on the dangers of the drug.

In her detention order, Beeler noted Ramos, “a native of Honduras, lacks significant ties to the Northern District of California and does not possess the type of employment or family stability that would reasonably assure his appearance at future federal court proceedings.”

Drug addicts and the rest of San Francisco’s homeless population are now facing a massive bomb cyclone, which is expected to bring whipping winds, flooding, power outages, and heavy rainfall for the next 2 days.

The atmospheric river and bomb cyclone targeting the region could become one of the more impactful storms to strike the state in years, according to FOX Weather, with some evacuation orders issued already.

“This could be historic,” Fox News’ senior meteorologist Janice Dean said.

The National Weather Service office in the Bay Area warned that while rainfall would be light throughout the morning, residents should not let their guard down, as thunderstorms and strong winds were expected later in the day during a “brutal system.”

High wind warnings were posted across the entire Bay Area and the Central Coast through 10 a.m. PT on Thursday, and the office advised Californians to prepare for downed trees and flooding along the Russian River near Guerneville on Thursday.

The good news is: At least the city streets might get cleaned from the mountains of human feces.

George “fentanyl” Floyd syndrome

That’s outrageuos!!
(only 1/3rd of SF deserves that… ) 🙂

Let that fentanyl roam free and remove that Narcan stuff from cops and first responders so that the OD cases are lethal. Let the drug addict problem cure itself. Soon there will be no more users left alive so no profit in importing the stuff.

    Heroin is sometimes laced with fentanyl. That’s what killed my son..

    You are really sick. Many of these addicts got addicted after being prescribed Oxycontin and other narcotics by Big Pharma (Republican) doctors that they trusted. They are not to blame. Scott Adam’s son died of fentanyl addiction and overdose. If we can save some of their lives, then I am in favor of it.

      Do you mean the Big Pharma (Republican) doctors that all appear to be Leftist/Progs. Hate to burst your bubble but Big Pharma docs these days are bluer than blue.

Shouldn’t he be receiving an award?

Say hi to Saint George for us

Just let him put it all up his rectum, and we don’t need to waste taxpayers money

– Max. This one has a compartment. Inside there’s a pill. If captured, it would cause death in nine seconds.

Great. But how exactly do I get them to take it?

“.. a native of Honduras…. ” Did the court get that from reading his entry visa?? Of course I jest.

What’s so bad about that? Fentanyl, and meth, only kill wypipo. george floyd did just fine overdosing on both, until he got Chavin’s knee on his neck, which, despite no neck/throat trauma, killed him, as proven in a trial as fair as the Covid elections

Enough to kill the entire population of San Francisco? Hmmmm

Just feed it to him.

If caught distributing some substance, require consumption by the dealer on the spot to determine if it is dangerous.

    Yah! but he’s only the mule. need to remove the whole cancer for anything to be effective.
    As much as I’m opposed to it, torture him to obtain any/all information he has and then ask the parents who’ve lost children to act upon it

      Pet peeve time. Could we please stop using the photo of Mylan’s prescription fentanyl patch for stories about illegally made and sold fentanyl? Please? There is a huge difference between illegally made illegally sold fentanyl and legitimate prescription fentanyl

      Fentanyl is an excellent drug for anesthesia, post operative pain control, and as a patch is very useful for treating chronic pain. THIS IS NOT WHAT’S GETTING SOLD ON THE STREET.

      Fentanyl is a very powerful drug and one of the few medications that is useful for anesthesia and pain control for painful medical procedures. Fentanyl patches are very useful for chronic severe pain. I realize it’s an easy photo to find online when there’s a news story about fentanyl, but demonizing Mylan’s product just makes it that much harder to treat people with pain.

Gee, … sounds to me like Mr. Ramos’s had the right idea!

I wonder how many fish will have died from all the drugs and filth flushed into the Bay (By the City) from the great rain storms?

If he had overdosed on his own supply, like George Floyd did, the same Feds would put any police that happened to be present in prison for two decades or more, and pile federal hate crime convictions on top.

Can we stop with the BOMB CYCLONE already? it’s getting as stale as the last hysterical media mantra of the POLAR VORTEX or EL NINA.

We seem to keep busting people with enough Fentanyl to kill a city, state or everyone in the US. Where is all that going? What are they doing with it all?

So why is someone arrested for something most of the people of San Francisco vote for? Are the people of the US responsible for the way San Francisco want to live. It’s San Francisco’s problem, let them fix it.

I’ll be nitpicky. First they say he had 400 grams f fentanyl, then they say 7.8 lbs. 400 grams is a bit less than a pound (actually, 0.88 lb). Which is it?

    The way it reads is that the charge is for “possession of more than 400 grams” and the actual amount was 7.8lbs. If grand theft in your state is anything over $1k, you can be charged with grand theft if you stole $30k. Your charge would be “theft of an amount over $1k,” and the record would show that you stole $30k.

    But 7.8 pounds of what? Street drugs are generally “cut” (diluted), and the police proclaim the weight of the entire package, not the much smaller weight of the actual drug. Fentanyl would be diluted much more than most – maybe thousands to one. Saying that 7,8 pounds of pure fentanyl could kill the whole city is meaningless unless it was pure fentanyl, rather than 7.8 pounds of, say, powdered sugar and a few grams of fentanyl.

Sounds like terrorism — mass casualty chemical attack.

What are the charges? Oh, right, he’s neither a citizen, nor inconveniently opposing the political Authoritah. No biggie.
