If the KCSD would get rid of the tell on 3 and go free.Bicknell and Knox county would be a better place to live. What happened to the 3 strikes and your out law. Has anybody ever thought about who puts up the bail for these people and why is it that court system only slaps them on the hand. The person that lived in that house was busted for drugs 2 weeks before this bust. Just something to think about

I grew up in Bicknell and spent 31 years in California's Bay Area. For the past 3 years I have been working as a security enforcement lieutenant near skid row in downtown Los Angeles. During that time I have witnessed first hand the destructiveness of drug abuse.
While the drugs of choice downtown are crack cocaine and heroin, there is no shortage of meth. Young girls walk the streets at night, selling themselves to support their addictions. Thieves abound, always on the prowl for an easy score. In those three years I have personally seen 9 dead bodies on the sidewalks, streets and alleys of the “City of Angels”. Only one of these unfortunate people was the victim of a homicide. 7 were the results of drug overdoses and 1 stepped in front of a city bus while under the influence of narcotics. A bus wheel running over a man’s head is not a pretty sight.
The Los Angeles Police Department has done a fine job, but is understaffed. L.A. has only 10% of the officers that New York City has, but has a much larger area to patrol. It saddens me to know that the little town I grew up in has serious drug issues.
Whether one is a citizen of Bicknell, Indiana or Los Angeles, California, he should support the police in their efforts to gain control of the situation. Police departments should encourage citizens to take an active part in flushing out those who would turn their homes into a sewer. I hope someday to hear there are no more drug raids in Bicknell, not because the police and citizens are not doing their jobs, but because they have, and there are no more drug houses.

I hate this. If I ever hated or loathed anything. It is drugs. Drugs any where. Bicknell is a small town...We love Bicknell. Bicknell lays in Knox County. For a little quiet area in Knox County Indiana...We are known for this...If you drive down through a parade inthis small town in southern Indiana. Your heart will ache if you grew up here. No businesses, some are still here. Drugs, alcohol, has seemed to taken over a beautiful little mining town from the 40-50's with at one time over 10,000 people residing...The town has went up in smoke. Because there was no stopping it. Laws, etc. stopped this all...We are in the ruins these days.

I have lived in Bicknell for 4 years, and I can't wait to move out of Bicknell. The drugs and crime are totally out of control. The local authorites are completely useless and don't seem to have a clue. Much worst then that, they don't seem to care about the people who live there.
I've learned that from my own personnel experience.
