maybe you should post that amani martin and justin branson have ben selling heroin for the purpose of greed money and more heroin. This has also ben going on for a long time.There are young people in coosbay fed up with heroin and the people that polute our town with no regard to who they hurt.Its time to make a stand clean up now before it gets worse.There needs to be a change in priority in our town and someone needs to stand up and take charge.I want the public to be aware that a large number of people that sell an do heroin everyday are already on parole or probation.That if the probation officers would get off their lazzy butts an work the problem would be cut in half.Do your job or I will name names of who isnt.

It is not by here say or rumors that I post my comments.It is by first hand knowledge.The public needs to hold its authority figures responsible to make our town the safest place possible.They are failing us all.With a coos county wide mandatory Urine analyses weekly at bare minimum,for those on parole and probation.It might cost more money but as a tax payer I say money well spent.It would with out dought violate an catch alot of addicts and dealers that our walking all over our curent probation system.It would also send the message that our tax payers and legit citizens demand results.Why should the same people doin the same stuff get away with it.I got no problem connecting the dots as to what probation officer belongs to what addict/dealer in coos bay.I will name names.

Maybe all you naysayers should get the real facts. Justin is an upsatanding citizen. Former state champion wrestler, and a very respectable young man. I guess its because most of you are unemployed and have nothing better to do than sit on you fat asses and sit on your computer all day

Also, like the first post says: neither one has been charged with anything. Especially Justin Branson who had no knowledge of what was going on and had no involvement whatsoever

Saying justin was innocent and had no knowledge is bullshit. I was friends with him and amani and stopped hanging out with them when I could see them doing heroin and distributing it. You can also ask his ex she saw it all as well

Justice, Jeremy, Leda, and aaa...we all know the truth. Justin is a amazing guy! Loving and full of life! These people don't know him. Nor did " friend " take the time to get to know him. Justin didn't deserve any of this. He was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It happens to the best of us sometimes. It's sad but it happens. Justin won't let it get him down because he's awesome like that!

It seems like some of the people who commented are a bit biased on both sides. The fact of the matter is that these 2 people made a big mistake. It was their choice to do drugs and sell them. Drugs cause a lack of judgement. Selling drugs can ruin lives and kill. Not saying that these 2 people are evil or that that was what they were intending. They were trying to make money the only way they thought they would be successful at the time. This is a depressed community and it is difficult to make a living no matter what you do. Not to say that this is a legitimate excuse for their reckless actions. They can overcome these mistakes that they made in the past and change their lives around. Heroin is an evil drug, and it doesn't allow for reason. Hopefully their time that they had to serve will allow them to get clean, think clearly and live their lives with better motives afterwards.
