Wow. Major bust. Our streets are really safer now. Too bad they had to release 3 sex offenders to make room for them. I think the sex offenders are planning to live in Southbury.

I hope this is just the kick-in-the-pants these young men needed to get their lives in order. They need a good talking-to from Mister T. I hope he visits them in jail, and makes them feel terribly ashamed of themselves. Nobody brings on the shameful introspection like T!

This is the same area that there was the kidnapping and murder related to a large drug debt. Nice quiet town, right?

Do you know that for a fact?

It is a good thing they put these guys away before your daughter OD's on all the horse they are bringing into town.

Oh what an astute observation! Well Done!

Look, the whole damn place is faling apart due to our inability to limit drug, gang, thug, scourge to the urban areas. Now the rural areas are getting spillover effects. Even Hampton will experience this. The economic situation will only make the problem worse, as some of the worst affected will be the ones that have no option for "great" money besides peddling drugs.

Drugs are NOT a law enforcement issue.

Decriminalize it.

Treat the problem as the health issue that it is.

Stop this war against our own people. Let's also stop this black market that creates more crime.

Uh - Huh...Drugs are a Law Enforcement issue...Health Issue? Thee flu is something you can't prevent. Alzheimers is something you can't prevent. Cancer in unpreventable...However, when drug dealers infiltrate a community, use their tactics to influence and hook kids on drugs, and profit from the sale of drugs, it IS a Law Enforcement issue. Drugs, and the sale of drugs usually exprapolates to crimonal issues as the users now go out and seek easy sources of income to fuel their habit. This makes it even more of a Law Enforcement issue. In the area of East Haddam, Chester, and Deep River, residential burglaries are rampant....So the kids who decide doing heroin was a cool thing, now comes and robs your house, and the cops show up and tell you to call you insurance company, are you still going to think this is a health issue? Now the dirtbags that use drugs, how would they pay for the treatment, if they decided to pursue treatment? Yes, enter Barack Nobama with his taxpayer funded social programs... Not Government funded healthcare, as the money comes from the taxpayer...If you are in favor of decriminalizing drugs, I doubt that you are a taxpayer, and I doubt that you have anything to lose...and of course, being a dirtbag drug user yourself, it's easy for you, to expect that others foot the bill for your self centered lifestyle...Hmmm, what happens when someone steals your stash? Is it still not an issue for Law Enforcement?

lets face it drugs affect ALL communities HOWEVER now that the suburbs are being affected at the same rates as the inner cities NOW it becomes an issue WE the american people must address we as a nation ought to be ashamed of the fact that as long as it does not affect those close to us we dont ever see the problem until it hits home...drugs have been an AMERICAN problem for decades and we should wonder what has OUR govt done with their agenda for the war against drugs...

Please tell me you are kidding! If you dont you must really be a real outstanding citizen!(sarcasm) People who actually believe in statements like yours are the reason why jails are over pacted, people die every day of overdosing, so high on drugs that they commit other terrible crime, and/or simply...losers

Don't you mean taxpayer funded social programs? Give me a freekin break. I faced down one drug addcited burglar in court, who in tears wanted a break because "the drugs made him do the crimes". He chose to do the drugs, and after, being given a break, he was released and did more crimes of a more severe nature. He had been in taxpayer funded social programs....Programs that just don't work! These people in this artical have burglarized many homes in the Deep River and Chester area, along with other types of crimes. The only way to "socially" deal with people like this is with long sentences in maximum security prisons...As far as driving by differant agencies and seeing people of all colors and nationalities. So what? Dirtbags are dirtbags. No sympathy for them, as they made the choice to get high. There needs to be zero tolerance for this type of criminal, and harsh sentencing for those who are convicted. The thing that really amazes me, is that Americans are getting ready to vote for a person who has the same character and history of drug use as these creeps do. Why would anyone vote for a candidate who used pot, cocaine, and other drugs? Once a druggie, always a druggie...

Actually you are thinking of nice upper middle class Chester, not nice working class Deep River.

All 3 of the "Tri-town" towns are great. Just different. Worst thing about Deep River are its oppressive property taxes.

Essex has 2 things going for it w/respect to taxes.
1) a lot more $3mill houses owned by retirees (who dont have kids in the school system, the largest budget item in any town).
2) significant small industry. Essex has a number of industrial parks hidden in town. They are a great tax base.

p.s. DR has the best dump BY FAR. Just had to mention it.(and now that Richie is gone, its impossible for non-residents to use .. I've been told)

Drugs are everywhere. Get over it. Dicrimilization is a start but wont be the end all of the problem.

The deep river dump is actually closing very soon partly because we let chester use it. It has reached capacity. so now like essex, we'll also be shipping our garbage elsewhere. It should be impossible for nonresidents to use. ITS THE DEEP RIVER DUMP!!!
