If the goverenment would start deporting illegal aliens, we would have so much less crime. Isn't that why we pay taxes?

Do kids still smoke weed? Just imagine if we taxed and sold marijuana to adults only? We can then focus on real crime such as starting a war with fake altered facts.

Hey Mike, who will take care of your lawn and bus your dishes in Hinsdale? More importantly, who am I going to score my next oz from? A very minor hit to a harmless illegal activity.

Maybe you should start talking to your kids instead of playing online all day then they wouldn't start smoking... Dont blame your inability to parent your children on everyone elses actions!

Hey Mike the reason all the mexicans are here is because there isn't enough white people to do the job that mexicans can do.

Five suspects were released, but the police would not say why they were released? In this country, the police should be mandated to explain why five suspects in an operation like this are not charged and released. Something wrong with that picture.

And the police believe it's from MEXICO! No sh_t. Well, the holiday buds busted, and no smoke in the house, what was little johnny to do, it's was time to dry out. Thirty day's before christmas, still plenty of time to search the mall, waiting to see santa, from MEXICO. And to think, he could pay $15,000 bail and head back to MEXICO. Love how this government works so hard to stop the drug trade. Oh well, santa will be back for sure.

what job, the dishes at the local restaurant...these should be jobs kids do in high school, not some grown man that can't speak ENGLISH and could care less about goals..as far as my lawn..I have a kid and I will not hire anyone that can't speak ENGLISH and I mean the workers..if they can't communicate with me they are not usable! also, are you saying the Germans, Italians, Asians are to smart to take the jobs from the illegals south of the border..it appears if you compare illegals from other countries they learn faster that those south of the border..why is that?

Maybe all the bigots on here would feel better if all that weed came from some nice blonde boys who snuck down from British Columbia? After all, they grow the sweetist, best pot available. That Mexican stuff was probably junk anyway.

This stupid, pointless 'war' has to stop. We can;t afford this anymore and it does nothing positive. I can only imagine how much time and money was spent on this police bust. How all that money could have been better spent. And yeah, how much in state and federal taxes that could have been levied on all the marijuana they confiscated and now those lucky cops will take great pleasure in 'destroying'.....

Yeah and way backl when, the ice cream sundae set also banned alcohol as well. And a few choice laws banned colored folk from sitting at lunch counters and voting and whatnot. So what's your amazing point Perry Mason?
