Oh my God. I can't believe you had a heroin addict on the phone and no one did anything to send him in a direction to get help. As I write this the prosecutor is saying, "We don't want to send anyone to jail". Then put your money where your mouth is and help these people instead of arresting them.
When the addict was on the line host asked the prosecutor to address the comments made by the addict. The prosecutor avoided talking to the addict. Instead he talked ABOUT addicts. Talking about someone as if he is not there is dehumanizing. Law enforcement dehumanizes the problem. These addicts are human beings. We need to treat them as such.
