    Right on Ko ....I'm glad someone else can remember that Contra Affair....ironic considering it was Regans wife that started the infamous "Just Say No " program....the main reason we filled our prisons and continue to house more inmates than any other nation on Earth....and don't forget it was Richard Nixon that started the actual modern WAR ON DRUGS and created the DEA....them conseratives are the ones behind this whole drug mess !

    me,do you remember how ronald reagan a republican conservative funded the illegal iran contra affair after congress cut funding for the contras weapons, his cohorts flooded major cities with cocaine and other drugs with the proceeds going to fund contra weapons,on your computer look up the story about drug dealer ricky ross,this tells the whole story.your comment blaming liberals is totally wrong.

    For the Love of God ...suspect no#4 was only arrested for possession of a crack that is the best use of our tax dollars ? The whole War on Drugs is a sham...this mess has been going on for 40 years and the end result is simply more drugs and more drug usage. Locking up more people all the time has'nt accomplished anything and locking these people up for life is no answer either! Sorry to upset your world "Me" but liberals did'nt create this mess!

    This stuff is not important. Our main focus should be on speeders..the real criminals of society.

    Let's hope with the bonds being set so low that these people are providing information as to who is really providing these substances. I am sure that cocaine and crack are not "homegrown" so they are obviously coming into this area from somewhere. I'm sure the task forces are doing a great job as we see more and more of these arrests. What a shame for so many young people to waste their lives with an addiction.
