Wow. What a disgusting abuse of power.

A pain management doctor in New York has been arrested for writing more than 17,000 prescriptions of powerfully addictive drugs like oxycodone for over 2 years.

His "patients" included 10 who have died due to overdoses and one man, a known drug dealer, who killed 4 people in a pharmacy robbery.

The city's Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan is accusing Dr. Stan Li of intentionally writing prescriptions for unneeded narcotics in return for cash by charging him with prescription sale and reckless endangerment.

On top of charging patients between $100 and $150 a visit, depending on their "complexity", he sometimes billed government health programs for the visits.

Although his defense attorney believes Dr. Li "followed the rules" and "did what he had to do", the prosecution calls his actions "just another form of drug dealing."

We're inclined to agree with the latter.
