An old man selling drugs. Any jail time he gets will probably be a death sentence for him. Oh well.

Why? This guy could probably live off of toe nails and cockroaches. He'll have regular showers,a clean bunk, 3 square meals served to him and all the drugs he wants in jail--all on our dime. I think he'll be just fine!

After Baker's arrest, police seized five vials of suspected heroin, 15 vials of suspected crack cocaine and $2,314 in cash.

Dumb hillbilly mountain cops. If they think that this makes him a "Major crack Dealer" they're coo-coo.

"Gene Baker is believed to be the largest supplier of heroin and crack cocaine in the northern part of Bedford County in the past several years," Higgins said. "Today he is out of business."

If he is THE LARGEST...they have don't have any problems in Bedford County.

In most places he would be the largest in any given crack house. Gee-zu-pete!

Lol we'll "mr.baker" was a good man until his wife died and some of these people are right he didn't have anyone to support! His daughter was old enough to take care of herself and her children just stole from him for years and Garrett ended up being the one to get him connected to all of this anyway! Did you ever think that ALL his neighbors had young children so not only did he put himself in danger he risked all those kids lives every day! He deserves every bit of his punishment! He could have dealt with his grief like normal people!!
