Reckitt Benckiser (RB Group) agreed to pay $1.4 billion to resolve US investigations over claims that its former pharmaceuticals business, Indivior carried out an illegal scheme to boost sales of an opioid addiction treatment. Indivior was accused of deceiving doctors into believing its product, Suboxone Film, itself a form of opioid, was safer and less susceptible to abuse than similar opioid drugs, and the company allegedly directed opioid-addicted patients to doctors who prescribed Suboxone at high rates. Indivior has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and fraud charges and will face trial in federal court.
Reckitt Benckiser has agreed to pay up to $1.4 billion to resolve U.S. claims that its former pharmaceuticals business Indivior before it was spun out of the company carried out an illegal scheme to boost sales of an opioid addiction treatment.
The settlement, the largest by any company related to the U.S. opioid epidemic, resolved long-running probes by the U.S. Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission into the companies’ marketing and sales of Suboxone Film.
The deal came after Indivior in April was indicted and accused of deceiving doctors and healthcare benefit programs into believing Suboxone Film, itself a form of opioid, was safer and less susceptible to abuse than similar drugs.
The indictment said Indivior also used an internet and telephone program touted as a resource for opioid-addicted patients to connect them to doctors it knew were prescribing Suboxone and other opioids at high rates and in suspect circumstances.
Oxford has partnered with pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca in order to produce billions of doses. That means that, even though the vaccine is of little value, the government will purchase the billion doses and force everyone to accept them.
Over 700 looters were arrested, but more than 400 were immediately released without bail. It appears that city and state leaders have ordered police to stand down to encourage as much violence and destruction as possible to eventually justify martial law, which is the end game for ending America as a free nation.
In cities around the US, pallets of bricks have been delivered to riot locations. There is no construction in these areas, so it is logical to conclude that they are being provided for rioters to break windows. This is further proof of a well funded organized operation. These are not mere “protesters”.
Calling for stronger police and/or military response is exactly what the enemies of America want. Rather than calling for martial law, why don’t commentators call for putting the organizers of these riots into prison NOW? Can’t people see that they are professionals, not protesters?
Leftist college professors take to the media and Twitter accounts to voice their opinions, mostly sympathetic to rioters. They are using social media to promote and justify violence. The presidents and trustees of these universities have not objected to their rhetoric of hatred and violence.
This raises the question of whether police will have the power to forcibly enter a home and remove a lover from another address. This COVID Theater would be hilarious if it didn’t tragically affect so many lives.
Her arrest came as 47 NYPD vehicles were set on fire and damaged in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Rioters also were attacking police. An estimated 33 police officers were injured in the city. De Blasio’s daughter’s arrest came as he was urging protesters to return to their homes.
Trump has ordered the Pentagon to prepare the US military to deploy domestically inside the US. As the violence escalates, people will welcome the military. Minnesota is using ‘contact tracing’ techniques to track rioters – and then everybody.
Every state has plans for contact tracing. In Washington state, where contact tracing is said to be voluntary, non-compliant individuals may be sent to prison and fined up to $2,000 per day for non-compliance.
The NYPD said that several officers sustained injuries, including one who was struck in the head with a garbage can and another who was punched in the face. Protesters shut down the street around police headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

A $260-million settlement has been reached between 2 counties in Ohio and Israeli drug manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceutical, plus three drug distributors. As usual, the money will go to the county governments, not to the drug victims.
In the last five years, a culture shift began with legislature decriminalizing felonies and dumping convicts onto the streets. Shoplifting is rarely prosecuted and crime has exploded, the city is overrun with rats, garbage, human feces and needles.
The driving force behind this is synthetic opioid painkillers called fentanyls that are wholly synthetic, and easily can be made in a lab. It is commonly manufactured in southeast Asia, is easy to smuggle, and massively profitable. A kilogram of fentanyl costs $4,000 in China but can make $1.6 million in profit on American streets.
