    The sad thing is they will normally send them back out to deal to catch the big fish, but if the little fish have kids, they still have them deal with the kids in the home

    i hope he stays in for a long time. People like that should stay in jail. The police could get alot more of them even I know several names of drug dealers and I don't even hang around people like that. It's a shame the police will not take back the neighborhoods for the people who pay their salaries.

    How many times is Buzzy going to be picked up for drugs before he serves some hard time. He just keeps being picked up and let out and back to business as usual.
