  3. As if these people were upstanding citizens that could be trusted anyway. Why would they go down alone when they can bring others down. That's what they were already doing by helping spread the plague.

  4. Well if you didn't buy from them what's the problem? And you only refer to them as "rats" because you're obviously in the drug "ring". Now springfield can clean the town up and watch out for the people who are known users/dealers!!

    2. The term "rat" doesn't just refer to people in the drug game. As far as rats go... These two I thank for providing that list. Heroin is the devil

  5. When faced with hard time most criminals will do what these songbirds are doing...singing away and lessening their time in the pokey. Hopefully they make the list public. No need to protect the "innocent".

  6. It's great that These scumbags are off the streets and hopefully many more will be too..it's sickening to see or even hear about..I don't want my grandchildren or nieces and nephews growing up in that kind of world..Springfield used to never be a bad town..Wish it was like it used to be..

  7. What a joke! Get rid of this judge! Low bail for major criminals.

    “The evidence is strong, so conviction seems pretty likely in this case and the consequences to her are (likely to be) significant,” the judge said as she imposed $5,000 bail for Danielle Garceau and $7,500 for her husband."

    1. Right on 12:30 PM! The bail on both is ridiculous and you know that our so-called justice system isn't going to give them anything approaching the 20 or 40 years mentioned in the article.

      Delete
    2. That bail money is nothing, they probably made that in a day of business. Shumley will set them free provided they promise not to deal drugs again.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, if the evidence is that strong, they should have been remanded. But, hey, it would't be sporting to not give them the chance to run!

      Delete
  8. Haha and to think that when notified their both hit they kept going. Thank god I left Vermont..(Idk if its anonymous for a reason but this is Zach H.)

  10. Anonymous 12:30pm, I totally agree with you! They've been selling 500 bags of heroin a day out of their home for three years (with four children in the house!) and they get this pathetic bail?

    I genuinely appreciate our law enforcement officers who deal with this scum every day with the ultimate payoff of seeing them behind bars. They risk their lives to make us safer and for that I am grateful.

    Legalize it. Regulate it the way we regulate liquor sales. Deal with the 25% of heroin u sers who are addicts the way we deal with the 20% of alcohol users who are addicts. See the market price go so low as to make a black market unprofitable, just like with alcohol and most tobacco products. Save money we spend on cops, courts and prisons.

    Or continue to be stupid.

      3:26, you have been lied to. Here's a credible source: https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/heroin

      People who believe that 100% of alcohol users are addicts are usually pitied or scorned. What sort of regard should we render to people who believe 100% of heroin users are addicts?

      Delete
    3. Because heroin is 100% addictive since it is nearly identical to the natural painkillers our bodies produce. Alcohol is not. If you knew anything about alcohol and drugs you would know this. But, sadly you are just another over-the-hill hippie trying to achieve immortality at the expense of anyone uneducated or naive enough to listen to you. You want to experience scorn? Go to any NA meeting and talk your BS. I dare you.

      "Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored."

      Tobacco is addictive. So is alcohol. People have as much trouble getting free of them as they do with heroin.

      Sorry, but you're wrong about it being 100% addictive. Seventy-seven percent of the people who use heroin do not have a compulsion to use it daily or even weekly. As for NA, one's own personal hell with heroin does not validate a claim to universality of a condition.

      Until we get over the idea that using heroin is criminal, criminals will risk the chance of jail in order to make huge profits from its illegality. In order to increase those profits, they will peddle it. Their customers, in order to afford their next hit, will peddle it. You don't get that with drinkers and smokers.

      If, like alcohol and tobacco its manufacture, distribution, advertising and sale is regulated, addiction will continue to be a problem, but it won't be accompanied by either an explosive growth or the violence we currently see.

  13. I'm glad they gave up names, it's just too bad our "do gooders" in town and the courts will slap them all on the wrist, and instead of punishing them, will put them in programs to "better themselves" while still being able to sell, buy and use.

  20. Jeeze really??? That low of bail?? So much for trying to get rid of the ones dealing this crap. Y don't we just slap their wrists now n let em back out n go back to their lives of pushing this stuff more. Ppl bitch n bitch about all the hard drugs killing ppl but when they're caught they don't get in a whole lot of trouble. I know, y don't we just keep bitching n not bother to do anything about it??? Oh ya, that's right, the judges n states attys already give most of em a free pass, or close to it. Why would they stop?? They have no fear of consequences. Friggin sad that when they do get caught, this is all that happens. I think it's time for a complete overhaul of Vts justice system. The current ones are all bass ackwards. Makes me wanna puke!!!!

  21. Why if all You People have such a strong opinion on the current drug problem , the way the UNDERPRAISED Police Officers are dealing with it , and the way OUR Judicial System is handling it on how prosecutions go , WHY DO YOU KEEP YOUR NAME ANONYMOUS ????? Why don't You show Your support to the Officers Who risk Their lives to STOP all this ! I have seen what drugs ,any drugs can do to ruin a life , Not just heroin ! If Everyone is going to remain anonymous the present way things are done is not going to change ! STAND UP AND TAKE CONTROL OF OUR TOWN ! If You know of a drug house ,user , trafficker , mule , or anything else ,REPORT IT !!!!!!!!! GET IT OFF OUR STREETS !! Get rid of the methadone clinics , That is only legal heroin ! Make SUBOXONE and METHADONE , a treatment only available for short time. Lifetime treatment is not a cure ! STOP any or ALL , STATE ASSISTANCE if PROOF is not furnished of any drug abuse !
    Our Judicial System needs to be revamped ! You get more time for lesser offenses than for MAJOR CRIMES ! Example is I was convicted of marijuana posessition of .03 grams (less than a cigarette filter weighs), and got a $600 fine , and probation . Yet another Person I know has been busted with 1/4 ounce of marijuana more than once ,and gets a $25 dollar fine ????????? Its time that crimes should be PUNISHED by severity , not how much info can get You off !!!! DO THE CRIME ,DO THE TIME !!!

    2. Althouh I agree with most of what you said, I remember when a heroin dealer moved in next door to me. The cops began to investigate ME, since I was from out of state, but claimed a lack of resources when I said something. The lead "detective" actually said he knew the dealers, and they "really weren't bad people." I ended up hounding their landlord, who eventually got rid of them. The police did NOTHING. So spare me the BS about lack of community involvement! The people who run this town, and the landlords and real estate speculators who profit from catering to addicts and dealers are the problem. As far as law enforcement goes, maybe this town should hire cops who DON'T know the druggies, and will not show favoritism. Anonymous? Damned right! I don't need to be any more of a target than I am right now!

    3. Agree with you 100%. The town leaders haven't invested anything to try to improve the town. If you aren't a born and breed Springfield person, you have a tough road. The town leaders, police, realtors and slum lords are all in bed together.

      Delete
    4. don't blame all the cops, some have tried to get rid of the incompetent leadership, but too much employee turnover and favored pets have meant nothing stuck. The good ones do get fed up and leave, or work with a foot half way out the door and like us are stuck here in a failed state due to economics. As for staying anonymous, do it; it is parking ban season...

      I think the point about anonymity that 1:44 implies is that the opinions of anonymous posters are automatically discounted, as the authors are perceived to be unwilling to stand behind what they say.

      Delete
    2. As I said, I post anonymously for reasons of personal safety, not my own, but my family's. I stood up to the dope dealer, and like many times before in my life, found myself standing alone. As to credibility, I defy you or anyone else to find fault in anything I've said. I am, however, encouraged by the number of posters who agree with me on this one, and when circumstances permit I DO plan on getting more involved. Until then, I will continue to speak the truth, anonymously.

    3. Philip Caron11/1/16, 9:13 AM

      One can neither find fault with nor approve anything you've posted, because 95% of the posts here are by Anonymous, so nobody can tell which ones are yours. You could be a kid, a troll, a politician, a liar, a solid citizen, an extremist, someone with vested interests, someone in another country, etc. They all have opinions and reasons for stating them. If you post regularly, a pseudonym might help distinguish you so readers would at least be able, over time, to evaluate your contributions.

      Delete
    4. I believe each post can and should be evaluated individually; using a pseudonym would not gaurantee the veracity of any statements I make, it would only allow others to keep track of them. This would allow people to evaluate them in their entirety, but also provides a means of playing "gotcha" by looking for any seeming contradictions. I suppose that's fair, since I regularly do it. I DO see your point, when I come up with an appropriate moniker, I will begin posting under it. (I was thinking of calling myself "Nemesis of Chuck," although that may be too personal.)

  24. And the police have their heads up their asses anyways, I've had conversation with a few of them with mad track marks up my arm, they rarely notice, and when they do I just say I fell down or something, and that's it! I say keep selling the dope, at least I'm happy when I'm high compared to all u miserable shmucks.. Ha

  25. Anonymous 1:06: With your bad complexion, sunken eyes, excessive ageing, rotten teeth, and your sleeping bag splayed across your cousin's couch, do you really think the police need to look at your track marks to know that you're a user?

  26. A study, as presented on the Burlington news, shows a "circle" which includes three parcipants, renters (users),landlords and dealers. All three "in bed" together. The landlord being the kingpin to the "operation ".

  27. Please the cops new of this drug house for a long time and a few more in town and have been told. But did nothing about it till now. What makes it even worst is the school right behind it.These scum bags have destroyed many kids and family's and think its ok they didn't care what they were doing as long as they got the money. They took trucks and laptops, I pads and much more from these people. They turned over a list of names. What's that prove? The cops already know most of them. These people on the list are used to find the dealers. Lets hope they get a few more from that family who deal too. Cops know that too.

  28. And right there is ONE if the issues- I am none if those things; I work a full time job of long hours NOT behind a cash register, I am very presentable with shine hair and a bright smile, a welcoming exterior and seemingly positive attitude will leave u feeling like u may have met a decent law-abiding citizen, yet you're so quickly to believe so strongly I'm the scum of the Earth. I understand the perspective of pushing drugs out of the small towns of Vt, but what it's turned into is pushing our people out, throwing up our hands and shutting down all possibility that "drug addicts" could possibly be "normal" people who need support to overcome this monster we call addiction.
    I find the close mindedness of people like you sad and very worry some, and that's one of problems, just like drugs, that we'll never see dissipate from our sidewalks.
    So good day to you Jackass.

    1. Congradulations, you put up a pretty good front. The most vicious criminals I met as a treatment professional took great pride in their personal appearance, and were always pleasant and sociable. Sociopaths usually are. I met one who dressed to the nines, was meticulously groomed, and couldn't sleep at night without his choo choo alarm clock his "gammy" gave him. He shot a man four times, stabbed him seven times, and beat his dying body to a pulp, literally, with a length of pipe, over $250.00 worth of dope. Personal appearances mean nothing. You, and your kind, are merely symptoms of a bankrupt culture. SOME of us can see past the facade.
