  3. It is disgusting to see what these dealers are doing to our town and its residents. I am sickened knowing that the town people used to bring their kids to so they would have a better life is now just as bad as the places parents moved them away from.

    This drug and crime problem must have been building for years, why didn't police nip it in the bud years ago?

    1. When people report things over and over without any real results, eventually they give up.

      Could this be why some have become so frustrated lately that they felt the need to take matters into their own hands?

      Sad state of affairs... People should demand better service for their tax dollar


      Marge: We can't trick these guys. They are highly trained professionals!

      Chief Wiggum: Oh my god, it just disappeared! (Gasp) It's a ghost car! (Slams on brakes) There are ghost cars all over these highways you know.
      Homer: Hold me!
      Chief Wiggum: Only if you hold me!

  4. It's hard to serve and protect the citizens of this town from drug dealers, when the some of the citizens of this town serve and protect the dealers!!!! The police made one mistake years ago when they busted all the people who sold weed. It made way for the coke epidemic, which turned into the pill epidemic, which spawned the heroin epidemic. Should have just left the potheads alone

    1. Sorry to say your gross oversimplification of the alleged root cause is exceedingly naïve, and erroneous. Illicit profits, a very sound demand, and lax law enforcement are the driving factors here.

    2. It is that simple, 40 plus years of the war on pot and we now have a heroin epidemic. Keep on listening to the people who tell you pot is bad for you as your watching all these world class athletes performing everyday in our country.
