there you go again if you can read it do not say that the drugs were his and also it was 500grams not pounds? Would that be good police work or good reporting. I thought you are innocent until you are found guilty. Until you are BLACK and in this system you will never know what it is like!Justice for you is not Justice for us!

Cry some more about how bad you have it and how unfair the system is because we have not heard it a million time before. Stop comporting yourselves like criminal thugs and you would have a far easier time succeeding in this world.

The problem is that this comes down to 1 arrest every 73 days. Great work if you can get it. What a waste of time and money

True that. I am one of the 20+ people caught up in this crap. Not that it means anything but I am the only white guy as well. I happened to know one of the guys charged and was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I didn't even know those other 22 people existed until this whole case became public. I have no record and have never sold drugs in my life and yet my name and face are posted along side everyone elses and people who don't know me think I'm guilty. I don't even have money for a lawyer. You would think If I was selling drugs I would have money. This is a horrible experience and no matter how it turns out I have to worry about maybe having a record and not being able to get good job. So to those people who think everyone in this article should have a bullet in their head. Think again. Don't be so quick to judge. Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law!!!!

Who's going to believe a chronic liar that steals his friend's nicknames to defend himself on the intarweb? You've had so many chances and burned so many bridges that I'm surprised you've managed to stay alive and/or out of jail for this long. And complaining about having a criminal record keeping you from finding a good job is priceless since you always lie on your resume anyway citing fictitious
degrees and experiences. The only plate you'll be serving now is Smoked Hot Dog ala Zipper. Bon appetite.

Guilt by association. You gotta be more selective when picking out your friends. Didn't your mother ever tell you people will judge you by the company you keep? Lie down with dogs and you'll get fleas and all that?
