alot has to do with the doctors writin scrips and making it easy for the pill heads. The go from one dr. to the next and in different towns and get their 30 day supply bring it back and they sell it. The doctors have to put a stop with the scrips an just give a few days supply if they need something for pain. but instead the doctor likes the cost of the dr. visit its all a bunch of bull. Should be some kinds regulations on the pill scrips. i wish they would all go down.

Well its posted all over Nashville News how most of them are from Crossville,Tn so once again our town is put in the dirt because of drugs.Why can't everyone just go to work to occupy your time if you need to work two jobs to take up your time spend time with your family.Instead of out in our town selling drugs that is whats wrong with this town some people have too much time on their hands.GET A LIFE

OMG, I can't believe some of the people on that list. I knew a couple of them, I would have never guessed it. I've never done drugs, but really come on, when your 60 and nearly 70 years old like a couple of them, shouldn't you know how life works by now? Some of them on there it doesn't surprise me. They all get what they deserve.

They busted a few pill mills in my area recently.

Among them: Dr. Zvi Perper, charged with trafficking from a Delray Beach clinic. In the first six months of 2010, Perper prescribed 387,000 oxycodone tablets, making him the 22nd-most prolific prescriber of the drug in the U.S. for that period. Perper is the son of Dr. Joshua Perper, the Broward County Medical Examiner.

The name of Dr. Perper may sound familiar. It is the son of the Coroner with the lump on his head for Anna Nicole Smith.

A number of these people on this list are not young, 20 yrs could easily be the rest of their life.
But when you play that kind of game sometimes you get caught and end up paying the price for it.
Can't say I feel bad for them though, they earned it and I hope this sweep continues to clean out the garbage in this town.

dont do the crime if you cant do the time, fbi and tbi need to start at the sheriffs dept and the sheriff since he dont run the deparment his cronies do. he hires deputys that have drug problems,history of spouse abuse and and been caught stealing and arrested and rehired what a croc if this town dont get people in office that have the balls to run it , it will get a lot worst but yet you all keep voteing for usless burgess and his team of misfits. its time for a change and politics has no place in law enforcement. everyone no matter who they are family friends if you break the law go to jail no if ands or buts about. just keep voteing for him and you will see
