A heroin-dealing ex-cop — who was arrested three times in a year — was sentenced Friday to four years behind bars.
A Staten Island judge handed the stiff sentence to Stacey Staniland, 30, after she was kicked out of a court-ordered rehab center for selling drugs to other patients, officials said.
“We agree with the court’s decision to hold Ms. Staniland accountable for her crimes,” said Staten Island District Attorney Michael McMahon after the sentencing.
Staniland was assigned to the 122nd Precinct last year when cops busted her repeatedly for heroin possession — and once for a wild motorcycle crash.
White Americans are more likely than black Americans to have used most kinds of illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana and LSD. Yet blacks are far more likely to go to prison for drug offenses.
Nearly 20 percent of whites have used cocaine, compared with 10 percent of blacks and Latinos, according to a 2011 survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration — the most recent data available.
Higher percentages of whites have also tried hallucinogens, marijuana, pain relievers like OxyContin, and stimulants like methamphetamine, according to the survey. Crack is more popular among blacks than whites, but not by much.
The law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth; for the wicked surround the righteous; therefore justice goes forth perverted. “Look among the nations, watch, and wonder marvelously; for I am working a work in your days, which you will not believe though it is told you (Habakkuk 1:4-5).
