This is the same area that there was the kidnapping and murder related to a large drug debt. Nice quiet town, right?
This was in Chester and not in Deep River. This could happen anywhere and Deep River is a wonderful little town and like in every town in America, there will always be a few bad apples. I would check my info next time instead of making a pefectly good town look like crap.

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!!!
Hey, I can see your point...Legalizing alcohol sure cut down on the number of alcoholics, and drunk driver related deaths...It also helped to greatly reduce the number of domestic violence calls...Kinda like how making cigarettes legal, has helped reduce the number of lung cancer cases...Yeah I can see where legalising drugs would benefit society....What a freekin Muppet!

No the kids that was kidnapped and murdered, his body dumped in Massachusetts, was killed in Chester...The sentencing just took place on the perps who did it...Yes sirree folks, sweet little chester, home of the Pataconk Bar and Grill, and the River Tavern...(don't eat there, the kitchen is filthy)

<quoted text>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...
you are FULL of shet answer your own question why you voted for bush he is a drunk and why would you want to vote for mccain when his wife self reportedly used Rx drugs to get high...and self reportedly is now a recovered addict...or DO U FALL INTO THAT CLASS THAT DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT A SUBURBAN SOCCER MOM WHO POPS PILLS IS A DRUGGIE...

I have to partially agree with "MentalMidget". The "drug war" that we dump hideous amounts of money into does NOT work. Get used to drugs people, they aren't going anywhere, certainly not how the "war" is being fought. Drug abuse is considered an addiction, which can be found in modern DSM manuals, therefor it IS a health issue, catagorized as a disease. I hope we all can acknowledge that large amounts of jail time generally does Not end up benefitting anyone in the long run, as the offenders don't get the help they need by being locked in a cell with violent offenders, or even other drug dealers. Instead, they share trade secrets and get better at there respective crimes. Once they serve their time they get released as felons (despite serving their debts to society, as prescribed by the courts) only to not be able to get work becuase they're convicted felons. The cycle repeats, pver and over again. All you people who yell "through the book at them" obviously have not taken any sociology, psychology or criminology classes. Look at REAL solutions for real problems. 20 years plus of the "drug war" and we are in the same spot as we started, after spending how many billions at this point? Change requires thinking, get to it.

Thank God Obama is not a drunk. But, in his future noble prize winning memoir, did he write that he used cocaine? if so, our future commander in chief would have been disqualified to enlist in the military.

Sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder. Being from Ohio, I sure like Chester, CT. Chester is a wonderful, small town with working class and yes, some wealth. Burglaries, drugs, murders, child abuse, sex crimes happen everywhere. Open your eyes. Stay in wonderful Ohio...YIKES!-I'm sure their kitchens are MUCH cleaner...NOT

You guys are confusing 2 completely separate incidents that happened in 2 different towns.

CheSHIRE - Petit killings. Wife daughters murdered.

CheSTER - Where Jason Argersinger was kidnapped and driven to upstate NY where he was tragically murdered.

That stuff was written about east haddam because in certain parts of town there are faults in the earths crust

At certain times they make noises. I've been told it sounds like a groaning, evil, devilish moan.

Moodus, a part of east hadam gets its name from this fact. Apparently Moodus is local native american for "strange noise"

No wonder Chester is circling the drain. The residents don't even know what is happening in their own town.

It's not that the residences of Chester don't know what's happening, they do not want to face the truth easier to ignore than deal..like the drug dogs at VRHS checking for liquor/drugs.. face it folks there are serious issues in the local school with abuse and some parents refuse to admit their kids are using/dealing. The old saying "kids will be kids" maybe if someone had stepped in with the Argersinger kid or the girls with the Ohio bust or most recent three Deep River drug bust more lives would be saved before it is too late!

The drugs in this little town are out of control. Just investigate the number of kids who get hooked on heroin at Valley. It is a huge problem. I moved my family out of Deep River. It is time to take drugs seriously in this town. It's more than a little pot. Our kids are dying and living in prisons.

I could not agree more but remember it is not just Deep River but THREE towns - Chester, Deep River & Essex that make-up our school system.. there are big drug issues in the tri-town area what is it going to take before parents say enough..

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.
I completely agree. Once it is decriminalized and put under government control, there will be no more profit to be had by drug sellers.
