243: Episode 243 - The Sackler Family: An American Cartel

Often, on RedHanded, we find ourselves shocked at the actions of killers who callously murder tens of people.





But what if we told you that there was a family out there who are still free to this day, whose actions are responsible for over half a million American deaths over the past 22 years?





We are, of course, talking about infamous scumbags the Sackler family, whose greed, lies, and utterly vile actions unleashed a plague on the people of North America.
